Upon reaching the Realm of Spirit Venerable, whenever the cultivator was deep in meditation, just a thought alone could stir the spiritual energy within his body, creating a huge impact on the real world, creating a ‘True Illusion’ that was connected to the real world, but was at the same time detached from it.[1]

True Illusion was similar to an illusion, but a notch more complicated. It was still fake though, since it did not exist in the real world as an actual entity. However, its existence was very real… in the sense that one could reach out their hands to touch all of the things within the True Illusion. They would not feel or seem different from real ordinary items.[1]

Inside the True Illusion, all illusions would have real lethality. If you were struck by a sabre, you would be injured by that sabre; and if you were struck by lightning, you would similarly be injured by that lightning.[2]

As a manifestation of the deepest thoughts and will of a practitioner, one could make the True Illusion as complex as one wanted. Its strength depended on the spiritual energy, the divine sense and the practitioner’s realm. As a reality manifested from thought, even things that defy the laws of physics can be manifested into reality in it.[3]

Once it is stored away, it doesn’t disappear completely, instead existing in a special state around the practitioner.[4]


True Monarch Realm

There were some True Monarchs who were bursting with luck that would have the opportunity to experience forming a True Illusion in advance under the premise that they had the right opportunity, the right time, the right place, the right people, and the right emotions.[2] Some True Monarchs also have the ability to create a prototype of True Illusion.[5]

Spirit Venerable Realm

Once one ascends to the Seventh Stage, one must begin to create his own True Illusion by first creating a prototype and slowly condense the planed framework. Usually, to condense a True Illusion took some time to be manifested from the deepest memories, thoughts and will of the practitioner.[6][3]

Although True Illusion is an ability of Spirit Venerables, but according to the Second Ruler of the Nine Serenities, it should be of Eighth Stage. True Illusion actually contains deep and profound principles. As such, in is advisable for a Spirit Venerable to spend time to explore the profound mysteries of True Illusion before trying to break through to Eighth Stage.[7]

It was said that back during the ancient era when spirit qi was abundant, there was a powerful Venerable who went into seclusion underground for thousands of years, his thoughts forming a huge city above ground. What was surprising was that the city had residents who lived and thrived in it, just like real people.[1][2]

Profound Saint or Demon Realm

An ordinary Profound Saint or Profound Demon’s True Illusion can change into a city, evolving all living things’ all kinds of conditions.[8]

Tribulation Immortal Realm

Tribulation Immortal’s True Illusion can be as big as several nations. Moreover, if it isn’t restrained, the size can expand unceasingly.[8]

Attack of Heavenly Way Remains Ball

During the Attack of Heavenly Way Remains Ball, practitioners of Earth decided to use True Illusion as the first line of defence. Three Venerables, Buddhism Xichong, Taoism Black Abdomen and Holy Knight Uther used their True Illusions respectively in succession to slow down the advance of the Heavenly Way Remains Ball until Profound Saint Winter Melon managed to catch up.[7][9]

The Heavenly Way Remains Ball also took the opportunity to restore its status by using the True Illusions.[7]
