Undying Patient - Chapter 239
In a vast and endless universe, life can exist in any form.
So before meeting Jiang Lishan, No. 1 and Zero never knew that there would be life on the blue-spectrum stars that were so hot that they could burn almost everything; Jiang Lishan had no idea that he picked it up and took it away. The two crystals that look like stones turned out to be intelligent silicon-based creatures.
In the periodic table of elements, silicon is an element behind carbon, belonging to the same family, and chemically very similar, but most of the life in the universe is based on carbon, so the form of silicon-based organisms also exists with carbon-based organisms. A big difference.
Most of their bodies are transparent, just like chip stones. They are delicate and transparent, slightly fluorescing. When they move, many glass fiber-like silk tentacles are probed from the whole body, which makes them look like jellyfish. -A soft and fragile, 90% of the body is a carbon-based organism made of water.
But in fact, silicon-based organisms are not only not soft, but their bodies are very hard, and they can withstand very violent impacts. Even if the body is broken into many pieces, they can slowly rejoin the body through the light tentacles. In addition, Their lives are very long, and they can survive by eating some oxidized iron flakes. It seems that they are a kind of tenacious creatures. However, silicon-based organisms also have fatal weaknesses-they are afraid of cold and more afraid of oxygen.
For them, a temperature of 200 degrees or even 400 degrees can make them feel comfortable. A temperature below 100 degrees seems to them to be cold winter. When the temperature is below 0 degrees, they will be frozen to death, and Oxygen will oxidize their bodies, changing them from a transparent crystal to gray silica, so they can only live in an atmosphere composed of sulfur gas.
This atmosphere seems a bit scary to most carbon-based organisms. After all, sulfur gas will corrode their bodies, but silicon-based organisms like it very much, and a small number of carbon-based organisms like it too. Jiang Lishan is one of them because He thinks that planet is beautiful.
The planets living on the 1st and the 0th are full of blue and purple crystalline creatures. Because of the sulfur atmosphere, their sky will always show a magnificent color at dusk and sunset. When Jiang Lishan stepped on this land, he felt that if he He is still alive and he will love this planet.
It’s a pity that he is no longer there.
As long as Jiang Lishan thinks about it, even the beautiful planet has no meaning to stop him, so Jiang Lishan just stayed on this planet for a few hours, then picked up two beautiful spar from the ground and left.
The number one and zero in the deep sleep were awakened by freezing.
They wake up and find that they have left the original planet, but they have no feelings and emotions, and naturally they will not have the feeling of “fear”. They will only follow their instincts and find the hottest heat source here to survive.
It is also because the planet where Jiang Lishan lives does not have oxygen, and he does not need oxygen to breathe, so his sailing ship is full of inert gas, otherwise No. 1 and No. 0 will not wake up.
So Jiang Lishan looked at the universe for a while, and saw that the two crystal stones he had taken away from the planet had several legs, slowly moved toward the tea cup on the table, and finally attached to the tea cup and put his legs back. Take it back.
Only then did Jiang Lishan know that they were not stones, but creatures. After thinking for a moment, he made a cover and closed them both, and brought them back to Jurbury.
However, Ullbury is a planet that mimics the ecological environment of the earth. For silicon-based organisms, it is like a permafrost and hellish existence. Before the number one and zero were oxidized and frozen to death, the number one cracked Jiang Lishan. The intelligent system on the protective suit contacted him, which avoided the doom of death.
Since then, in addition to Jiang Lishan, Ullbury has two more intelligent creatures, and No. 1 and No. 0 have learned a lot of huge information through the intelligent system.
Later, Jiang Lishan found a boarding body for both of them. It was a fully enclosed robot. No. 1 and No. 0 could directly control the body of the machine with light-touch arms. They could eat a patch from the robot when they were hungry.
“You guys are a lot like intelligent AI systems.” As long as they don’t damage the planet environment, Jiang Lishan rarely cares about the two mobile iron men running around on Jurbury, but he can’t allow No. 1 and No. 0 to empty the machine body, Make direct contact with the air in Ullbury, “You eat your body, and I will throw you into the snow when winter comes.”
The number one and the number zero immediately became obedient, and it was terrible for them to have snowy winters.
However, after Jiang Lishan said this, another person froze on the rooftop with wine, his eyes always fixed one direction.
After a long time like this, the information of the Milky Way has been digested by the number one and zero. There are only three intelligent creatures on this planet, and besides Jiang Lishan going out to travel every year, he then sends some strange things to Yule Bury took the band, and what he did every day was looking at the same place in a daze.
On the 1st, Jiang Lishan always wears protective clothing and does not make any contact with the planet. He can’t help but ask him, “Isn’t this your planet?”
“This is my planet and my lover.” Jiang Lishan told it.
“What about your lover?” One asked again, but it hadn’t seen anyone else on the planet.
“He is not on this planet.” Jiang Lishan pointed to the place where he had been commenting, “He is over there, I may never see him again.”
“Why?” Zero came together. “Because he died?”
No.1 regretted that he didn’t install more systems to improve emotional intelligence for No.0. Because of the words of No.0, Jiang Lishan threw them into the snow for three days.
After being brought back, No. 1 and No. 0 felt that they were frozen silly, and No. 0 who had the new system installed in No. 1 cried and said, “The snow is so cold, I will never dare.”
“He wasn’t dead.” However, Jiang Lishan heard his cry, but said his voice dumbly. He didn’t know if he was telling the truth or he was deceiving himself. “
After that, Jiang Lishan poured himself a lot of wine. On that cold winter night, Jiang Lishan talked with them a lot and even showed them pictures of his lover.
“He is very beautiful. Although his life is short and aging is fast, but I think that even if he is old, I will still love him the same”
No. 1 and No. 0 have lived in Jury for nearly a hundred years. This is the first time that Jiang Lishan has known before and it is the first time he has seen him laugh.
This clearly belongs to his planet, but he locked himself in a cage called “protective suit”, just like he is a huge death virus, carefully avoiding the planet.
Under the sparse starlight of winter night, No. 1 saw Jiang Lishan laughing while whispering while talking about his lover. The exhaled heat fainted white mist on the transparent helmet, but in the blur, No. 1 was clear I saw the twinkling light in the corner of his eye.
That’s something they would never produce. A carbon-based creature named human named it: tears.
They sat on the highest hill in Ullbury, looking up at the boundless night, with the slight sound of snowflakes falling in their ears.
In winter, Ullbury can see few stars, not to mention Jiang Lishan is looking at a non-lighting asteroid. Even if he looks here for thousands of years, his lover ’s planet will not be there. The rays of light reached Jurybury, and his thoughts were probably unable to pass through the vast universe and reach that person’s heart.
After all, in this world, the hardest time to cross is not time, but the distance between life and death.
The person that Jiang Lishan loved got rid of the lingering time, and stayed a few hundred years ago, but Jiang Lishan himself can only keep going forward with the torrent of time, the farther away from his time and the person he loves more Farther and farther-never get together again.
After that night, Jiang Lishan was much quieter, and it was more difficult for No. 1 to see his emotions from his gray eyes. Even if he could see it, it and No. 0 could not feel his emotions, knowing that it was a kind of How sour is sad and desperate.
However, Zero started to invade the galaxy’s database. Jiang Lishan didn’t tell them too many secrets, but Zero wanted to find more information about his lover from the photo of Jiang Lishan and his lover.
This check number found something.
“There is a permafrost prison under the Earth’s Arctic Ocean. I heard that the prisoners have been released recently and started a new life on other planets, but No. 0 found that a man who is determined to stay on the earth looks exactly like your lover. “” Then, No. 1 handed the photo of that person to Jiang Lishan, “You said, would he be the reincarnation of your lover?”
No. 1 and No. 1 accidentally learned more about some earth cultures, and they were very interested in a culture called “feudal superstition”.
But when Jiang Lishan saw the face of that person, he almost snatched the light board in No.1’s hand in the next instant, shaking his finger and stroking that person’s face: “Jinzhi this is not his reincarnation, this is He! He’s not dead! “
Knowing that his lover was resurrected, Jiang Lishan immediately took the sailing ship and ran to the earth.
But more tragic is that his lover does not remember him any more, and even worse, his lover will not live long.
Jiang Lishan quietly accompanied his lover to Naxigang, paid him most of the cost of treatment, and planted many flowers outside his ward, but all this did not relieve that person’s death rate.
“Is there no way to save him?” No. 1 looked at Jiang Lishan across the transparent window, and watched his lover being rescued.
Number One told him: “Quickly, Zero and I can finish the remodeling process right away.”
Jiang Lishan said, “I want to enter the fictional world and accompany him.”
Not to think, but to, such accurate and firm words revealed his stubbornness.
“Are you sure?” No. 1 stunned, “You may die.”
“Then I died for him, too.” The man was unmoved, and put a soft kiss on his lover’s forehead through the transparent helmet. “Even if I die, I’m willing to follow in his footsteps.”
The number one can’t help but be sighed, the love of the carbon-based creature is really touching, but unfortunately it and the number zero are destined to be unable to understand this kind of relationship.
Even if it and its parent star that received it were accidentally destroyed by the interstellar war, they could not feel too much pain and sadness, at most it was just a blank space.
It asked the zero number: “Are the mother stars gone, are you sad?”
“Am I sad?” Zero asked him back, his voice flat.
No. 1 looked at his teary face and asked, “Sorry, why are you crying?”
Zero usually cries in front of Jiang Lishan’s lover and pretends to be pitiful, but when it does cry, it doesn’t make any sound, just silently shed tears.
Zero said: “This is the new program you gave me. When I feel pain, sadness, grievance, or especially happy, I will cry. But there are so many reasons that cause me to cry. Why am I crying now? Well, I don’t know, is this sad? “
No.1 squatted down and wiped tears for No.0: “I don’t know, do you want to go to the mother star?”
“Are you going with me?” Zero asked it.
“I have to stay and watch Su Jinzhi to make sure there is no sequelae to the treatment.” One passed the starship’s key to the zero. “Go, see what’s left of the mother star and bring those things back to Jurbo in.”
“Okay.” Zero took the key, and soon left Jurybury. Su Jinzhi and Jiang Lishan asked, and No. 1 only said that it had gone to its mother star, without saying anything else.
But in fact, Zero did not return to the parent star, because its parent star no longer exists, the once beautiful and beautiful planet has disappeared, and Zero found only a few broken planet remnants.
It scooped up the residual stones to the starship, and soon found that the residual stones were the solidified bodies of Rust River.
The Rust River is a river on its parent star. Unlike other rivers, this is an iron slurry river. It is not a water, but a melting iron red slurry river.
Only the parent star was destroyed, and the Rust River, which was exposed to the low-temperature universe, quickly condensed into iron blocks. Zero also saw several pieces of silica on the surface of the residual stone.
That was his companion who was frozen to death.
Zero was standing in front of Canshi for a long time. It actually wanted to find someone to talk to, but No. 1 was absent. There was only one on this starship. At that moment, No. 0 seemed to understand that Jiang Lishan was always alone in the universe. Wandering inside.
It was silent for a long time before finally finding tools to separate his companion’s body from the frozen Rust River, and at the end, No. 0 shed tears-because he found two purple crystals still glowing.
They all sink into the depths of the Rust River. Maybe because of this, they were finally frozen, so they haven’t died yet, but one of them is not in good condition. Its body is half-siliconized, in other words To say-it’s dying.
No. 1 hurriedly found the high-temperature box and put both of them in, with soft cushions underneath, for fear they would be uncomfortable.
The two purple crystals soon woke up, and touched out the light touched each other, and the voice communicated vaguely: “Are we not dead yet?”
“No.” Zero rushed closer, reaching out to touch them, “I saved you.”
The semi-silicified crystal screamed again: “Oh my legs are gone, I feel like I’m dying”
“No, no.” Zero comforted it immediately, “when we reach Jurybury, we can let Brother No. 1 heal you, and you won’t die.”
Zero has been chatting with them. It named the semi-silica crystal as number two, and another crystal in better condition as number three.
It tells them a lot, from Earth to Jurbury.
“Is that planet really so good-looking?” No. 2 asked Zero weakly, and its body was still petrifying.
“Yes.” Zero answered it, “You hold on for a while, and you’ll be there soon.”
It was just that No. 2 never reached Jurybury, and its lavender transparent body eventually turned completely into a gray-white opaque silica.
No.0 held No.3, washed No.2 with other silica, and put it into a small bottle. No.3 touched No.0’s chin with light. When he touched the cold liquid, the light shivered. , Hanging a drop of transparent water droplets and asked it: “It’s cold, is this water? Why are you running water?”
Their silicon-based organisms do not produce water, and the liquid is too cold for them.
“This is tears.” Zero told it, “I heard that it is something that humans will shed when they are sad.”
“Sad?” No. 3’s voice was soft and dazed, “But you’re not human. How can you be sad?”
“Yeah, I’m not human. How could I be sad?” No. 0 murmured, it put No. 3 in a thermos bottle and fed it with iron oxide. “But my body is now modeled after a human Manufactured, and installed many new systems, which is probably why I’m sad. “
“You said you want to make me a new boarding body.” Number three touched number zero with light.
“Does the new boarding experience weep like you?”
Zero told it: “It should be, the living environment of the Milky Way is not very friendly to us, and you can’t live without Shinjuku.”
“What about the mother star? Will we all go back in the future?” No. 3 asked again.
“Can’t go back.” The No. 0 holds the No. 3 bottle and rubs his face with his face. “But we still have each other, and there is No. 1 brother in Jurbury. It’s waiting for us to pass there. Our new home. “
“Then we will give the mother star a name now,” said No. 3.
The zero and one were originally unnamed. This is the name that Jiang Lishan gave them. The planet where they are located also has no name. Every silicon-based star on the planet also has no name, because in their original thinking, The name “name” does not exist.
At the first hearing, Zero was also worried. It wouldn’t be named. What is better to call the mother star?
“Do you have any good suggestions?” It asked No. 3, passing a lot of information to the galaxy by the way.
No. 3 paused for a few seconds and then said, “Call it Opal, I think it’s beautiful.”
Zero froze, then smiled, “Okay.”
In the message it passed to No. 3, there was an image of an opal stone.
Opal is a beautiful gem from the ancient earth, meaning “the beauty of gems in one body”.
