The Outer Space Levels

You asked: What are the Outer levels of space going to be used for?

Thanks so much for writing to us here at TruthBook with your questions about the outer space levels.

The outer space levels, as you may know from reading The Urantia Book, lie outside of the present boundaries of the seven superuniverses, and encircle them in four separate bands. Here's what the text has to say about them, and their eventual use:

12:1.16 The central universe is the creation of eternity the seven superuniverses are the creations of time the four outer space levels are undoubtedly destined to eventuate-evolve the ultimacy of creation. And there are those who maintain that the Infinite can never attain full expression short of infinity; and therefore do they postulate an additional and unrevealed creation beyond the fourth and outermost space level, a possible ever-expanding, never-ending universe of infinity.

In other words, as I understand this, those four levels of creation, which are now in process of forming, are the foundation upon which new universes, galaxies, systems, and worlds are being evolved - an ever-increasing expression of God's creation.

And to answer your second question: Once we are fully perfected, what will we do?

It is my understanding that, once we mortals fuse with our Thought Adjuster, acheive perfection, and are reunited with the Father in Paradise, we, as Finaliters, will be sent as ambassadors of God to these now-forming systems and planets in order to fellowship and gather them into the fold of celestial family as we have been fellowshipped. Our revelation to them will be the revelation of the Supreme, as our revelation has been of the Universal Father.

I might suggest a thorough read of that entire paper 117, too.

Of course, this is eons of time away from now, and will be in a time after the acheivement of the ages of light and life in the seven superuniverses; nonetheless, it is a pretty spectacular destiny for us lowly creatures of animal origins, I am sure you'd agree. Here's how it is explained in the text:

56:8.2 Ascendant finaliters, having been born in the local universes, nurtured in the superuniverses, and trained in the central universe, embrace in their personal experiences the full potential of the comprehension of the time-space divinity of God the Sevenfold unifying in the Supreme. Finaliters serve successively in superuniverses other than those of nativity, thereby superimposing experience upon experience until the fullness of the sevenfold diversity of possible creature experience has been encompassed. Through the ministry of the indwelling Adjusters the finaliters are enabled to find the Universal Father, but it is by these techniques of experience that such finaliters come really to know the Supreme Being, and they are destined to the service and the revelation of this Supreme Deity in and to the future universes of outer space.
112:7.15 "The present known destiny of surviving mortals is the Paradise Corps of the Finality; this is also the goal of destiny for all Thought Adjusters who become joined in eternal union with their mortal companions. At present the Paradise finaliters are working throughout the grand universe in many undertakings, but we all conjecture that they will have other and even more supernal tasks to perform in the distant future after the seven superuniverses have become settled in light and life, and when the finite God has finally emerged from the mystery which now surrounds this Supreme Deity.
"You have been instructed to a certain extent about the organization and personnel of the central universe, the superuniverses, and the local universes; you have been told something about the character and origin of some of the various personalities who now rule these far-flung creations. You have also been informed that there are in process of organization vast galaxies of universes far out beyond the periphery of the grand universe, in the first outer space level. It has also been intimated in the course of these narratives that the Supreme Being is to disclose his unrevealed tertiary function in these now uncharted regions of outer space; and you have also been told that the finaliters of the Paradise corps are the experiential children of the Supreme.
"We believe that the mortals of Adjuster fusion, together with their finaliter associates, are destined to function in some manner in the administration of the universes of the first outer space level. We have not the slightest doubt that in due time these enormous galaxies will become inhabited universes. And we are equally convinced that among the administrators thereof will be found the Paradise finaliters whose natures are the cosmic consequence of the blending of creature and Creator.
"What an adventure! What a romance! A gigantic creation to be administered by the children of the Supreme, these personalized and humanized Adjusters, these Adjusterized and eternalized mortals, these mysterious combinations and eternal associations of the highest known manifestation of the essence of the First Source and Center and the lowest form of intelligent life capable of comprehending and attaining the Universal Father. We conceive that such amalgamated beings, such partnerships of Creator and creature, will become superb rulers, matchless administrators, and understanding and sympathetic directors of any and all forms of intelligent life which may come into existence throughout these future universes of the first outer space level.
"True it is, you mortals are of earthly, animal origin; your frame is indeed dust. But if you actually will, if you really desire, surely the heritage of the ages is yours, and you shall someday serve throughout the universes in your true characters—children of the Supreme God of experience and divine sons of the Paradise Father of all personalities."
