Pertti I am not sure why you have not found any thing in the U.B. unless you aren't reading it. I didn't say that I did not get anything out of it. On the contrary, I have gotten much more from it than from any book ever! However, I still see that there will be so much that we'll be seeing in the f...

The more I read TUB, the more I realize that it tells us nothing . It tells us nothing about how everything works. It does tell us bits and pieces about how things are organized, but even there it is quite vague and leaves out a large number of beings. The more I read TUB, the more my hunger for mor...

When I put it in layman's terms, I would try to explain that Jesus was just putting an end to the unnecessary and superstitious killing of innocents and used himself as an example of the last "animal" to be sacrificed in such a fashion. Actually, as far as I see it, the only place where t...

Furthering the analogy to a different dimension: Our mortal body equals the hardware in a computer. Our mind is the software in the computer. Our spirit is the purpose that the software is used for. Our soul is the reason why that purpose exists. Hence, when our body dies and decays and the software...

I would like to bring the metaphor even further. Yes, ordinary computers are sequential devices but even they often contain several processors that concurrently process the data. A severe limitation of computers is that they can access the memory only if they know the address. That requires differen...

Additional comment: I am pretty certain that the narrow field camera was used in this image, because it was taken of a far away object which is still quite small. http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/spacecraft/cassiniorbiterinstruments/instrumentscassiniiss/instcassiniissdetails/ says that the focal length o...

(Curtis also believes that NASA has pictures of this architectural sphere -"Mother Ship" taken by the Casini-Saturn probe - See: http://www.helloearth.info and click on the NASA Connection - I verified this picture was pulled directly from NASA website in 2007). The comments on the page h...

I believe that this new gravity matrix will exist outside of earths gravity matrix like a bubble and 'appear' to possess some kind of antigravity force but, as you pointed out, that is not possible. Well, according to TUB, real antigravity is possible only to a very limited set of beings. However, ...

Bart - a very good summary! The foundation of the scientific method is the requirement that experimental results must be replicable by any independent observer in order for it to count as scientific evidence in favour of a formal theory (not as absolute proof). In fact, not just any observer but any...

We must come up with a way to nullify earths gravity field using the concepts in TUB. This will solve the worlds energy problems. That won’t happen. TUB clearly states that: "the inescapable pull of gravity effectively grips all the worlds of all the universes of all space" (11:8.1). Hi B...

While reading TUB I realized something: it is impossible to prove the existence of God. Logic can in general be used for constructing proofs. However, you can only draw logical conclusions based on a set of assumptions. Logic cannot prove the truth of your assumptions. A common assumption that many ...

One thing that is important to remember that our life here is just a prelude (or even a prelude to a prelude) to our eternal life. The duration here - however long and tedious it seems to us - is just a drop in an ocean of oceans! Hence, the only thing that really matters is whether we have a fair c...

Some conflict I see an oppressed majority finally fighting for rights and freedom all-in-all good, but still we seem to be such a Violent species.....why, and is it in the end serving God? Well, it would be easier for everyone if we weren't so violent. However, even in our current state, God can an...

Some more notes on the subject of eternal life: (135.9) 12:5.10 Unspiritual animals know only the past and live in the present. Spirit-indwelt man has powers of prevision (insight); he may visualize the future. Only forward-looking and progressive attitudes are personally real. Static ethics and tra...
