Chapter 178: Back Home (Part One)
That wide courtyard of the Protector fell into a dead silence. This group of the Milky Way’s top mathematicians almost couldn’t believe their eyes. Within just a few hours, their data model was actually changed by that much.
The Protector rubbed his eyes, even though he was already blind.
“Isaac, re-calculate the results again.” The Protector said to his chief disciple.
Soon, these elite mathematicians got the recalculated results.
“Professor, the result is the same, the probability of the Milky Way getting destroyed raised to 99%, but the probably of it being destroyed in 100 years actually reduced to 88%.” Isaac said carefully and the whole group was silent.
“What’s the meaning of this?” The Protector looked up at the sky. Although he lost his sight, he still retained his past habit of looking up into the sky whenever he started thinking.
“Within a few hours, the data actually changed so dramatically, I think it might not necessarily be a good thing.” Isaac said.
“No. Although looking at short term, the Milky Way will be destroyed for sure, but the long-term data tells us that the Milky Way can possibly be saved.” The Protector thought and said, “The chart shows that the cause of such a large variable change is in the Eternal Star System, that’s where the Alliance HQ is. Could there be a problem within the Alliance?”
Isaac hastily said, “According to the information on the Alliance HQ, today’s the closed-door meeting between 12 permanent management member countries. Han, that Earth human who significantly changed the data last time also attended. The meeting was mainly for listening to his report on the expedition and the dark apostle.”
“No, that’s not right.” The Protector said, “Han reported the news of the dark apostles to the Alliance and that should decrease the Milky Way’s short-term chance of destruction. After all, getting the message early means you can start preparing early. But how come the probability increased instead of lowering?”
“There must be a problem.”
Not for long, there was already someone that received an email from the Alliance HQ, and the person that opened the email exclaimed, “Teacher! Han and the Alliance fell apart! He refused to take on the commander position on the Alliance’s secret investigation team and is already on his way back to Earth!”
“Could it be because of him?” The Protector thought.
Suddenly, a breeze of wind blew on his old face, with the scent of the yard grass.
The Protector suddenly hesitated, as if he thought of something.
“Can’t reconstruct if not destroyed, so that’s what it means.” The Protector whispered.
“Professor, you already understand?”
“Yes, so the Milky Way is meant to be destroyed, and referring to the calculated probability of 99%.” The Protector said with a bitter smile, “We are really stupid, always thinking of how to stop the demise of the Milky Way Galaxy but ignored a more important fact.”
“What fact?” Isaac asked.
“All civilizations are established in the ruins of the previous generation of civilizations, and only if the Milky Way Alliance is destroyed can the new Milky Way Alliance be built in the ruins! This is the supreme law of nature. We were too stupid trying to prevent the Alliance from perishing, which was in fact going against the laws of nature!”
Isaac couldn’t believe his teacher’s words and loudly said, “But professor, we have been preparing for so long! We gathered all the deported talents from the Milky Way, could it be that you want to give up now?! Just let the Alliance perish? Let it be destroyed by the prehistoric civilization?!”
The Protector’s facial expression became a lot more relaxed and whispered, “The Milky Way will never be destroyed, no matter if 100 million years pass, or a trillion years pass, the Milky Way will always be here, it’s just the civilization that perishes, the intelligent lives that occupy this beautiful sky.”
“The destruction and the establishment of a civilization is not something we can prevent, it’s the highest law of the universe.”
“Everything is already over, it’s a 99% probability, the Milky Way Alliance will be destroyed within a decade for sure, so continuing to tangle with these problems won’t do any good for us. From today we should look to the future.”
“The future?” Isaac asked.
“Yes, the future after the Alliance is destroyed. Now we have a 20% chance to built a new civilization in the Milky Way Galaxy within 100 years. A new Alliance, that should be the direction we work towards, and as for the decadent Alliance, let it vanish together with history.”
After saying these words, the Protector seemed to suddenly become awake, stood up, and walked to the yard without anyone’s help. He raised his head, heard the birds singing and the flowers swaying in the wind, and the breath of life made the Protector feel very happy.
Without eyes, people’s hearing will become more developed.
And that’s what happened to the Protector, he couldn’t see anything in this world but he could hear it. Even Isaac’s heart beating sound.
“The Oblivion Realm’s mission is over. Now we are going to initiate plan B, and officially name it Butterfly.”
Before the blind old man, there came a wave of depressing cry.
The initiation of the Butterfly Operation means that the Protector and all of his supporters will give up the Milky Way, letting the homeland of mankind be occupied and destroyed.
Except for the Protector that already thought everything through. Over the years he had never felt as relaxed as today, as if he returned to his youth, when he was not yet blind and could see the brilliant galaxy.
“Yes sir.” With red eyes, Isaac said.
As a mathematician, Isaac believed more in reason than in emotion.
The data model has explained everything. In any case, the Alliance will perish, and any action to prevent the Alliance’s demise will be as useless as a mantis trying to block a car.
