Even though the Hidden Leaf was destroyed, his ninja continued to investigate Paine. Inoichi speculates that the Six Paths of Paine are controlled remotely from one of the village’s highest points. All able-bodied ninjas go in search of Paine’s core mind. Meanwhile, the Way of the Daeva urges the captured Naruto not to resist, as his death and, subsequently, a world living in constant fear of annihilation will help achieve Jiraiya’s dream of peace. Naruto vows to stop this and find his own solution to achieving peace. Way of the Devas briefly tells Naruto about his life journey, full of pain and hatred, and what led him to the ideas of peace, then asks Naruto, who knows neither of these things, what solution he can offer. Naruto offers no answer.
