This is from your posting on Urantia Board:
The Orvonton life patterns are configured as twelve inheritance carriers. The differing orders of will creatures are configured as 12, 24, 48, 96, 192, 384, and 768. On Urantia there are forty-eight units of pattern control--trait determiners--in the sex cells of human reproduction.
As far as I understand it, each human has 46 chromosomes (44 genetic factors and 2 sex determinants (xx or xy) ) When humans mate and a new human is created, the new person takes 23 from each parent for a total of 46. This is according to information I looked at on the Human Genome Project Website. Basically, there are a total of 48 units of pattern control. Chromosomes 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,x,y would make a male human.
Chromosomes 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.20.21.22.x.x would make a female human.
If you look at it linearly like this, there are 48 units. However, when they pair up, there are only 23 pairs
because the two sex genes form one pair and determine the sex of the child. Does that make sense to anybody besides me?
Also, has anybody ever heard of Drunvalo Melchizedek? He has something to say about 46 + 2 in this interview:
