Thanks so much for your interesting question to us here at TruthBook.
It's fun to think about travelling to other planets, but I don't think any
evolutionary beings like us get to do that until they are ascended
mortals; at the time of our death, our personality and our soul travel to
the Mansion Worlds, and after that we do travel from sphere to sphere in
our ascent to Paradise as morontia or spirit belings. But as far as I
know, The Urantia Book does not teach us that mortals of any worlds travel
through space to other planets during the life in the flesh. Only spirit
beings are able to traverse space efficiently and safely. We do get
visitors here from other worlds, but they travel by aid of the Transporters
In this section, Mortals of Time and Space, the
types of mortals are discussed, and there is no mention of space travel,
except as ascending beings. It does say this, though:
These narratives cannot possibly embrace all of the
fascinating variations in the evolutionary worlds. You know that every
tenth world is a decimal or experimental planet, but you know nothing of
the other variables that punctuate the processional of the evolutionary
spheres. There are differences too numerous to narrate even between the
revealed orders of living creatures as between planets of the same group,
but this presentation makes clear the essential differences in relation to
the ascension career. And the ascension career is the most important
factor in any consideration of the mortals of time and space.
So, who knows if rocketry and space ships and interpnanetary travel may
be a part of one of these evolutionary worlds? I am reminded of our quest
for space exploration here on Urantia; it won't be too much longer before
humans WILL be traveling through space to other planets in our solar
system, and maybe in the distant future, we will even go beyond our solar
system to other worlds, too. But that's a long way off for us ... whether
other civilizations have developed to that point, The Urantia Book does
not tell us. In the end, "the ascension career is the most important
factor in any consideration of the mortals of time and space."
It never hurts to imagine what could be...it's so good that we have an
epochal revelation to inform us about the universe, and to inspire us to
think about big ideas like interplanetray travel! But for now, I think
that speculation is all we can do. But it's also good to know that there
will come a day for all of us when we WILL travel through space as
ascendent beings on the Paradise adventure!
Thanks again for your note. I hope that this reply has been helpful.
