Since the ancient book from that bookstore was found, Professor Trevor had made breakthrough progress in the translation of “Book of the Dead”.
According to Professor Trevor’s translation, Wang Yuechuan knew for the time being that this book, which enabled people to use magic, was roughly divided into three different chapters.
Manipulation, curse, creation.
The other was the concept of “divine text” mentioned in the book. According to the description of “Book of the Dead”, all applications were based on the application of “divine text”. That was using the correct pronunciation to read the “divine text” to build the start of magic, progress and end the whole process.
“Book of the Dead” didn’t introduce too many real tutorials about magic. It only gave the most basic explanation. Of course, it did not mean that there was nothing at all. For example, the magic that Wang Yuechuan had been failing, there was a tutorial about it.
Later he learned that this was the only tutorial in the “creation” chapter.
Yes, the only one.
“Book of the Dead” was such a book. It showed you the existence of “divine text. At the same time, it focused more on the idea of using this “divine text”, then it was filled with a lot of writing about the inspiration of the person who wrote this “Book of the Dead”.
“In simple terms, it is to show you a formula, then you use this formula to solve various problems.”
This was an immediate summary after Wang Yuechuan heard the lengthy explanation of Professor Trevor. For this reason, Professor Trevor was still very dissatisfied, but Wang Yuechuan didn’t care about Professor Trevor.
Because after having the correct pronunciation of “divine text”, he had indeed completed the only vision magic recorded in the creation chapter that he kept failing before.
This was a very strange and incredible touch from his own eyes. He could see the little doll made by himself with ordinary crystal powder and so on as raw materials. It was standing on the coffee table in front of him at this time, but at the same time, he could also see himself sitting on the sofa through the eyes of this doll.
Of course, from the point of view of the puppet, the clarity was somewhat unsatisfactory. It was just having myopia. On the one hand, it was because his creation techniques were not perfect since it was his first time; on the other hand, it was also because of the low quality of the production materials.
Moreover, it was necessary to learn the content of the control article to be able to truly move this palm-sized doll…
Wang Yuechuan was basically determined in his mind now. Behind the several serial murder cases he has cracked in the past, the dead Cao Yu must be the person behind-the-scenes. With the ability he got from the “Book of the Dead”, it wasn’t difficult for him to monitor someone without any knowing.
Those black crystal pendants on the murderers, maybe those were the materials that Cao Yu wanted right? Wang Yuechuan remembered that when he was in contact with the murderers, once the crystals were lost, they became agitated and lost control.
But is this kind of crystal natural or artificial?
While thinking to himself, Professor Trevor walked out of his own room. Wang Yuechuan saw him put on his coat, he subconsciously frowned and asked, “Professor, where are you going?”
Professor Trevor shook his head and sighed, “I have encountered a problem with the translation. I want to go for a walk to relax my mind. Maybe I can get some inspiration.
Wang Yuechuan nodded and didn’t doubt this. Even if he faced any difficult case that he couldn’t solve, he would plan to relax for a while too.
“It’s okay to go out, but…”
“Oh, yes… I know.” Professor Trevor nodded. He took out the “Book of the Dead” from his clothes and handed it to Wang Yuechuan reluctantly.
Wang Yuechuan said calmly at this time, “I understand the feelings of you translators, but I don’t want anything to go wrong with this book, so I also hope professor can understand me.
Professor Trevor shrugged and said casually. “I probably have to come back later in the evening. I want to drink some wine.”
Wang Yuechuan agreed to it, then Professor Trevor went straight out. Wang Yuechuan sat back to the original place again. He pressed his palm on the cover of the book “Book of the Dead”.
Undoubtedly, he did not have the knowledge to translate the “Book of the Dead”, but it did not prevent him from being able to feel it. When using magic, holding the “Book of the Dead” could have a higher success rate. Moreover, he didn’t feel so tired.
It may not only be as simple as a tutorial; it may even be one of the materials for using magic.Wang Yuechuan believed that Professor Trevor, as a translator, would recognize this earlier than himself.
After taking a deep breath, Wang Yuechuan took “Book of the Dead” and quietly opened the door of Professor Trevor’s room. He found the ancient book he bought from the bookstore. There were also the translation thoughts that the professor casually wrote in his notebook. Translation ideas.
Since I have no relevant knowledge in this area, I just learn it. I will learn as much as I can.
Wang Yuechuan didn’t like to rely on others, and he was more unwilling to give up more control to the other party.
Just after leaving Wang Yuechuan’s residence, Professor Trevor looked up and squinted when he was downstairs.
As a person who could translate the “Book of the Dead”, Professor Trevor also had his own plans. For this translator, after translating “Book of the Dead”, he found that this magic book was really too unfriendly for the elderly.
Even if he had mastered the pronunciation of the “divine text” earlier, he would not be able to independently complete the magic that Wang Yuechuan had completed. He often failed at the last moment even if he was holding the “Book of the Dead”.
Physical strength, spirit, will, and even vitality, etc., seemed to be one of the factors that allowed one to use magic… They were collectively called magic.
“Wang…You are really cautious like a dormant viper.” Professor Trevor suddenly sneered, “Manipulation, curse, creation, but there is a fourth chapter. I didn’t tell you.”
The fourth chapter-soul.
It was not difficult for Professor Trevor to imagine that Wang Yuechuan would not always rely on him to interpret this “Book of the Dead”. The power introduced in the book was out of logic.
Facing the temptation of this power, Professor Trevor didn’t think Wang Yuechuan could resist.. No one could resist it.
“You can study my notes carefully…”
The professor called a taxi at this moment, then he went to a bar. He was drinking quietly in a dark corner. The translation could be done anywhere. He had already recorded the information in the book into the electronic device.
Compared to living with Wang Yuechuan and always worrying about this poisonous snake, this place could make Professor Trevor’s thought clearer.
“The soul can be immortal, or even eternal. As long as one can find a new body…” The professor muttered to himself, watching the tablet computer in his hand as if he was possessed.
At this moment, his mobile phone rang suddenly, interrupting his thoughts. The professor frowned. After taking a glance at the name on the caller ID, he finally adjusted his mind.
“Hello, Tom.” Professor Trevor calmly called out the other person’s name. This was his friend and also a lawyer.
“Trevor, I have done everything you asked me to do, and I’m just about to make the final confirmation.” Tom said quickly. “But old friend, do you really want to do this? Your wife and son are all very opposed to your approach. They said that if you insist on going your own way, they may sue you!”
