PAPER 12 - THE UNIVERSE OF UNIVERSES

2. THE DOMAINS OF THE UNQUALIFIED ABSOLUTE

Although the unaided human eye can see only two or three nebulae outside the borders of the superuniverse of Orvonton, your telescopes literally
reveal millions upon millions of these physical universes in process of formation. Most of the starry realms visually exposed to the search of your present-
day telescopes are in Orvonton, but with photographic technique the larger telescopes penetrate far beyond the borders of the grand universe into the
domains of outer space, where untold universes are in process of organization. And there are yet other millions of universes beyond the range of your
present instruments.

In the not-distant future, new telescopes will reveal to the wondering gaze of Urantian astronomers no less than 375 million new galaxies in the remote
stretches of outer space. At the same time these more powerful telescopes will disclose that many island universes formerly believed to be in outer space
are really a part of the galactic system of Orvonton. The seven superuniverses are still growing; the periphery of each is gradually expanding;
new nebulae are constantly being stabilized and organized; and some of the nebulae which Urantian astronomers regard as extragalactic are actually
on the fringe of Orvonton and are traveling along with us.

30:4.17 Sometimes all training worlds of mortal residence are called universe “mansions,” and it was to such spheres that Jesus alluded when he said: “In my Father’s house are many mansions.” From here on, within a given group of spheres like the mansion worlds, ascenders will progress individually from one sphere to another and from one phase of life to another, but they will always advance from one stage of universe study to another in class formation.

i suppose the word mansion is used because the morontia beings are housed in huge buildings, apartment-like. since jesus used the word mansions tub uses it and in jesus day i suppose a mansion looked similar to mansions of today, huge homes with many rooms.

47:3.1 On the mansion worlds the resurrected mortal survivors resume their lives just where they left off when overtaken by death. When you go from Urantia to the first mansion world, you will notice considerable change, but if you had come from a more normal and progressive sphere of time, you would hardly notice the difference except for the fact that you were in possession of a different body; the tabernacle of flesh and blood has been left behind on the world of nativity.

if there's billions of beings passing all the time on evolutionary spheres and resurrections are scheduled periodically for all evolutionary planets, it just seems that demand for space for all these dying mortals would be a lot greater than the one mansion world availability. obviously not, i just don't know the scheduling but it is a thought as to how many people pass from evolutionary worlds and then how do they accompany all these beings to, for the most part, the first mansion world.

47:3.2 The very center of all activities on the first mansion world is the resurrection hall, the enormous temple of personality assembly. This gigantic structure consists of the central rendezvous of the seraphic destiny guardians, the Thought Adjusters, and the archangels of the resurrection. The Life Carriers also function with these celestial beings in the resurrection of the dead.

this is all going to be very interesting to go to, much more interesting than life on this sphere urantia.
