Chapter 143: Upgrading the Storing Space

In the warehouse, in addition to food, there was about a ton of mutant meat. It may be that the 7 Gods’ team exchanged almost all the mutant meat for mutant nuclei. All the materials in the warehouse, coupled with one mutant nucleus, a whole mutant beast left by Yuan boss, as well as all the gathered weapons, they all belonged to him. It was a real pity that those runaway survivors had not left their weapons behind. Jiang Liushi’s ability was limited, so it was impossible for him to control everyone in the black market.

Thinking about that wealth, Ran Xiyu was filled with a thousand regrets. That wealth was enough to build a force, and maintain it for a year long. Unfortunately, they couldn’t take them away. Jiang Liushi was silent as if absorbed in thought.

He suddenly said to Ran Xiyu, "You, get off." Ran Xiyu was shocked for a moment. Hearing such a cold order, Ran Xiyu couldn’t accept it at first. After all, before doomsday, she was treated as a queen. But after doomsday, all the things she encountered were totally different.

  

Ran Xiyu nodded. She was saved by Jiang Liushi, so she would naturally obey Jiang Liushi’s orders. After she got off, Jiang Liushi opened the control panel. He let Ran Xiyu get off because he wanted to absorb all the materials into his storage space. His motto was, ‘Waste is the biggest crime!’ He wanted to take as much materials as possible with him, but he didn’t want Ran Xiyu saw the process. In fact, he only trusted his sister and Ying.

To absorb those materials, he naturally needed to upgrade the storage space. He had everything he needed. "To upgrade the storage space, so that the capacity of storage space from 10 cubic meters to increase to 20 cubic meters, requires one level 1 mutant nucleus. From 20 cubic meters to 30 cubic meters, two are needed; upgrading to 40 cubic meters, 3 are needed…"Jiang Liushi looked carefully and he found that the number of needed mutant nuclei grew rapidly, respectively, "0,1,1, 2,3,5,8,13…" It was quite interesting that the latter number was equal to the sum of the first two numbers.

"These are the Golden Ratio figures…" Jiang Liushi said in surprise. This simple digital arrangement, was probably the most famous math figure, the Fibonacci sequence. In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers are the numbers in the following integer sequence, called the Fibonacci sequence, and characterized by the fact that every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding ones. By definition, the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are either 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the chosen starting point of the sequence, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two.

The Fibonacci sequence was named after the Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa, also known as Fibonacci. Fibonacci sequences appear in biological settings, in two consecutive Fibonacci numbers, such as branching in trees, arrangement of leaves on a stem, the fruitlets of a pineapple, the flowering of artichoke, an uncurling fern and the arrangement of a pine cone, and the family tree of honeybees.

However, numerous poorly substantiated claims of Fibonacci numbers or Golden Ratio in nature are found in popular sources, e.g., relating to the breeding of rabbits in Fibonacci's own unrealistic example, the seeds on a sunflower, the spirals of shells, and the curve of waves.

The Fibonacci sequence has been generalized in many ways. It may be the basic rules of the universe and almost everything unknowingly followed the rules. Even the mysterious Starseed, the upgrades it offered were according to the sequence. Unfortunately, that was not good news for Jiang Liushi. It meant that the storage space could only be upgraded to one or two hundred cubic meters. Otherwise, he could not afford to nuclei consumption.

"A hundred cubic meters is enough." Jiang Liushi felt satisfied and he put the mutant nucleus left by Yuan boss to the groove. The nucleus coupled with the energy absorbed from the paranormals amounted roughly to three mutant nuclei. Jiang Liushi didn’t want to part with them because they could be used for other purposes. For example, the tires needed to be upgraded, the bulletproof glass needed to be reinforced, even the internal area needed to quickly increase.

Looking at the materials in the warehouse, Jiang Liushi estimated that he could only take 70% of the materials away with one upgrade. [70% is okay. Safety first, wealth second!] Jiang Liushi thought in his mind and he confirmed his choice.

[Level 2 storage space function has been chosen. The storage space size will become 20 cubic meters and the anaerobic aseptic environment will be enhanced; ordinary food can be kept fresh for more than a year and a half. Mutant meat can last for four years, which needs a unit of energy consumption. Proceed with the upgrade or not?]

[Upgrade!] Jiang Liushi remembered that before that upgrade ordinary ingredients could only be kept fresh for one year, and mutant meat for three years. So after upgrading, the preservation time was also extended. In doomsday, it was valuable to own a storage space that could keep things fresh.

[All the required metals needed for the upgrade have been detected in the storage space. The upgrade has been initiated, during which it won’t affect the MCV’s use.]

The whole process needed one hour. During that period, Jiang Liushi let Sun Kun and Zhang Hai clean up the battlefield, and gather some of the materials scattered on the ground. They found three automatic rifles and that Type 95 light Machine gun.

 

Seeing so many guns, Jiang Liushi felt it was truly funny. He intended to sell some of those weapons, but they had found their way back to him again. It seemed that he could sell them once again.

During the upgrading process, Jiang Liushi also examined the MCV’s damage. The front windshield was completely broken, and the vehicle armor and tires were slightly damaged. To repair those, all the materials needed were not a problem. But Jiang Liushi was worried that his MCV was not strong enough. It was still dangerous for them, especially for him because his MCV could be easily damaged.

Editor's corner; Be aware, the Fibonacci sequence will be in the finals. Go home and study ~ That's what came to my mind while editing it. I can't even imagine how our awesome translator felt ;p 4 more chapters till the end of the black market arc ^_^ Rejoice, more upgrades are about to happen ^_^ Can you guess what's next? xD (Release 2/2)
