"He has left a clue in the place that once wasn't in both realms."
Theo scratched the back of his head. It felt like the God of Mischief had predicted everything. "Is he…"
"Nope. Normally, there wouldn't be any trace yet, but because of the incident, you can learn something. You should go there if you wish to know about it, but I'm not sure whether it's possible or not."
"I see." Theo contemplated for a few minutes before asking another question. "If that's the case, do you think it's possible for him to get there in time?"
"I'm not sure, but he has been watching you this whole time. So, I think you don't have to worry about that."
Theo nodded. "Alright then. One last question, I'm not sure whether I should ask you about this or not…"
"And what is that?"
"The energy that is the core of everything."
"…" Hel closed her eyes for a moment. It seemed she was aware of it, but she didn't know whether she should speak about it or not.
"There are a lot of things you don't know. You should look at the Age of Gods, and you will be able to learn many things. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of records left, so I guess… you should go there to learn about it."
"Are you not going to tell me about this energy? I call it Origin, but I don't know if that's the name or not." Theo explained.
"Hmm…" Hel contemplated for a moment. "I can only tell you three things. Do you know what's the difference between ancient times and today?"
"Is it the human population that causes all the mistakes, resulting in Earth being polluted?"
"Nope." Hel raised both hands and summoned a few bones on top of her palm. The bones on the right palm looked like a ball, while the ones on the other hand seemed to be a pillar.
"This is the World in the past." Hel extended her right hand. "Specifically, the energy reserve the world has. The world continuously releases it until today. Meanwhile, the other one is the reserve the current world has."
"Are you implying that the world has depleted most of its energy?" Theo narrowed his eyes.
"No. The energy circulates." Hel shook her head. This time, the circular bones turned smaller. "This is the other side after this realm's creation."
Theo was confused at first but noticed the difference in Magic Power in both realms, Theo soon understood the meaning. "So, the world has a set amount of energy that circulates all around the world. But most of them are concentrated in the original world, which is the other side.
"Meanwhile, the modern world where we're living right now has a smaller amount. Is it something like that?"
"Yes." Hel nodded. "It caused two things. The first would be the person's potential and the second one is their progress."
"Have you ever wondered why the monsters from the other side are stronger than humans of the same level?"
"Isn't it because they have—" Theo paused as if he realized something.
"It seems you've noticed it. The monsters themselves have so many races, yet overall, they're stronger than humans. This is weird, right? There are stronger and weaker animals compared to the human on Earth, yet, the other side only has the stronger ones. You must think it's strange, right?
"The answer to that question is the intensity of Magic Power circulating in that area. Just like when you're fed the nutrition in your mother's belly, the monsters are the same. The difference is the Magic Power density.
"The Magic Power is acting like nutrition. And because the other side is denser, they become stronger species no matter how weak their species are.
"Hence, this is the limit of humans. No matter how hard you work, you won't be able to rival the Gods and Goddesses in the past."
Theo frowned. "Now that I think about it, you are this strong when you're about my age. No, it's more like you're already strong the moment you're born. And become stronger after that…"
"Yes. That's the effect of dense Magic Power." Hel nodded and continued her explanation. "However, I'm confused about one thing in this world."
"And that is?"
"You!" Hel pointed at Theo with a serious expression.
"Yes." Hel confirmed without hesitation. "Despite being born in this world, you are able to reach this stage at your age. Your talent is similar to that of the Ancient Gods."
"What?" Theo widened his eyes in shock. People considered him the most talented human on Earth. But it seemed Hel only thought Theo was as talented as others of her generation.
In other words, someone with his talent was like a daily occurrence during ancient times. The abnormal ones would be the people of this world who lacked talents.
"But how do I even become like this? I don't think I have experienced something that can enhance my talent?" Theo felt weird, thinking he might have been playing on someone's hand this whole time. The difference between this one and the higher being was that he knew about the higher being's existence, but not with this one. 𝒾𝗻𝐧𝓇𝒆𝒶𝒅. 𝒸૦𝒎
So, he became extremely cautious as he recounted all his past experiences.
"To be honest, I don't know about it. But if there's someone who knows the answer, it's probably him."
Theo's expression turned serious. The one in her mouth was probably her father, the God of Mischief.
He contemplated for a moment and said, "If that's the case, then I'm going to get my answer from him. However… you haven't explained the second reason."
"Ah." Hel remembered what she had explained earlier and raised her finger. "Aside from your potential, the density of Magic Power also affects your growth.
"Do you know why you usually get extra attribute points whenever you rank up?"
"No." Theo shook his head. But the fact that she mentioned it, he knew there was a meaning behind those ranks.
If he took another look at the classification from the system and the Dragon Saint, he realized they were different.
"Don't tell me…"
