Body Transformation stage
The Body Training Stage was the first realm for those who pursued the road of martial arts. It involves the tempering of their bodies and was separated into six stages.
|1. Strength Training||The very first step in cultivation; in this step, a cultivator will strengthen their mortal bodies as a foundation.|
|2. Flesh Training||Strengthens the outer parts of the body. The epidermises of the skin can be infused with true essence.|
|3. Viscera Training||Strengthens the organs to the point that the breath of a cultivator would release snakes.|
|4. Muscle Altering||A thorough strengthening of the living tissue.|
|5. Bone Forging||As the name states. This is when a cultivator permeates their true essence in the bones, strengthening it.|
|6. Qi Condensation||The sign of the Pulse Condensation was true essence meridian penetration.
(Meridian Training) (Lifespan: up to 150 years)
|7. Tempering Marrow||Deep within the bones. A cultivator must penetrate their true essence to the marrow of the bone for the true essence to move through it as a medium for true essence like the meridians.|
|Foundation Establishment||Body Transformation|
|Qi Condensation||At this boundary, a martial artist formed their meridians and could draw in heaven and earth origin energy through their acupoints.|
|Houtian||When one’s origin energy reached a certain degree, it would gather in their lower abdomen and form a dantian.
Once the true essence within the dantian condensed into a vortex, there would then be order. The total amount of true essence would increase and it would also become much easier to control.
|Jindan||When the vortex condensed into a core.
|Yuanying||Break the Core to produce a Nascent Soul.
|Dongxu||To carve away/Sever those that a cultivator considers ‘vain’. Also known as spirit severing.
|Kongming||Void Profundity or Dao Seeking stage.
