Why is the book Evolution Chart related to the theory of evolution?

What is the relationship between the Ethereal Cloud Sword and the probability density?

How did cultivators build atomic bombs?

How did quantum mechanics appear in a cultivation world? Why were the ancient supreme experts and the modern ring grandpa labeled as being misguided and useless?

What is the connection between Quantum Grandmaster, Daoist Proscribe, and Supreme Lord with the great scientists Bohr, Heisenberg, and Einstein?

Let us follow the host, no, the protagonist Wang Qi, entering a world like never before and explore the secrets of scientific cultivation.


Premise TLDR:
MC transmigrates to a world where the traditional xianxia cultivation system has been overhauled with a more scientific system - Bohr, Heisenberg, and Einstein are Dao Ancestor-level cultivators. 
Title is inspired from the popular CN science documentary show, Approaching Science.

Approaching Science - Wikipedia


Novel's pros -

Unique premise,
interesting cultivation system,

smart MC, characters and setting


Novel's cons -

Translator needs background in science,
novel requires lots of author's notes,
quite slow paced


P.S. - The novel is the only 'bringing science to cultivation' genre novel that got popular in China, AFAIK. The first 3 chapters are very love-it-or-hate-it --- if you get hooked, you are in for the long haul. If not, you quickly know this isn't your jam.

If you check the link, you'll notice that despite having some chapters translated by a non-MTL translator, it didn't get many comments/ reviews. For this novel to be appealing to casual readers, explanatory notes are necessary and TL has to pay attention to Dao names as well.


Check the synopsis; Heisenberg needs a better Dao-name than Daoist Proscribe.
