    After defeating Blaze, Kai finds himself psychically linked with Old Being. Taking the opportunity to better his knowledge, Kai goes into deep meditation and searches through the realms of the Old Being, an entity who is responsible for reality itself. During his meditation he witnesses several things, such as Shao Kahn's rise to power and his defeat by Liu Kang. When Kai looks to the future for knowledge, however, he sees nothing.
