I can't subscribe to the idea that there are 9 other galaxies of similar size to The Milky Way galaxy that comprise Orvonton. The primary reason is that we see none of them and the revelators tell us: 15:3.4 (167.20) Of the ten major divisions of Orvonton, eight have been roughly identified by Uran...

maybe some mention of cyclic models preferred by einstein and others but didnt meet the scientific/mortal timebound mind frame that insists everything must have a beginning and an end? not critical to the points you're making though....just a bit of the history that interests me. i've only read the...

UB purports that early humanity was split into six distinct (Sangik) races ( see : 64:5.3 ) Hi BB -- Have you ever wondered if the Sangik siblings were differentiated by " adjutant affinity "? Imagine, the best of six characteristic cultures, integrated and enhanced by Adamic potentials. ...

I will forge ahead trying to deliver my message. Hi graybear, count me in! But let's try to make that message the best we can. For example, you wrote: The Urantia Book predicted that science would detect the vibrations of ultimatonic rays as they rain down on urantia. The CMBR is empirical evidence...

Hi SEla_Kelly, Interesting to reflect on how time-transcending absonite attributes -- and requirements -- can be made to repercuss on time-dependent levels. As the papers reveal, eventuated and transcendental agents are involved in making " space potency " accessible for finite manipulatio...
