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...

The Ringermacher-Mead paper is very, very interesting. I'm inclined to take on a similar study. [...]. Neat! If you could pick up where Ringermacher and Mead leave off, with a hint of revelation to point the way... PS: If you can play the PowerPoint file ( P4_D_May19.pptx, available here ), there's...

Here's something I'd love a second opinion on: This link to an ESO video (European Southern Observatory) shows a 56 second zoom through the Milky Way, to lensed quasar PKS 1830-211: Zooming in on the distant active galaxy PKS 1830-211 This clip indicates the current capacity of telescopes (and thus ...

"... we need to account for the very considerable amount of rotational or angular momentum either parts of the nebula or the entire aggregation must contain. But how can that arise? ... Hi Riktare -- I have a go at "angular momentum" in video Part 4C, from time 12:30 , or from page 1...

Hi katroofjebus, I'm still very interested in your thoughts on section 40:5. This seems to cover all options for human survival, and each involves the activity of an Adjuster ( 40:5.4 ): "Spirit identification constitutes the secret of personal survival and determines the destiny of spiritual a...

Hi katroofjebus, Getting back to the fascinating question of who, how and why regarding our souls, did you get a chance to look at Paper 40 section 5 ? This section describes mortal survival [ not by extrapolating intuitions about what an author may have intended, but ] from the perspective of a Tri...

Hi katroofjebus - thanks for your attempt to explain all this! You may have missed my question earlier ? First, can we assume that survival of humans from this world requires a soul? From what the Urantia Book reveals, this seems to be the case. If so, can you point me to any mention of the possibil...

Dear katroofjebus and Bradly, Thanks for exploring the birth of the soul. Just wondering, with regard to human survival, do any papers mention mortal survival where an Adjuster was not involved in creating the soul of that survivor? Paper 40 section 5 discusses various types of ascending mortals of ...

You feel the yearn and respond to it and both faith and assurance are the result!! . . . Even material experience and wisdom discovers the futility and cost of anxiety and mortal mind can certainly abandon such immaturity. Thanks Bradly for your great summary ( above ). Regarding the way we are fre...

Hi katroofjebus and Bradly, Regarding how to help each other (*) grow beyond anxiety and fear, (*) learn truly to relish adventure and uncertainty, and (*) bask in (ever more deeply appreciated) assurance, I'm guessing that lightness of touch, and love, are the base of the recipie?
