As it is stated in context in the UB "self consciousness" is a condition of the TA mind that is apparently necessary for its residence in the reservist mind. What other part of the book can one relate to this concept? What nature of the TA are they trying to explain. I' ve tried cross -referencing ....the TA's mind attributes.....came up with no explanation as to what is a "self- conscious Adjuster".

Perhaps these are the self-acting adjusters?

Quote:
"You have been informed of the classification of Adjusters in relation to experience — virgin, advanced, and supreme. You should also recognize a certain functional classification — the self-acting Adjusters. A self-acting Adjuster is one who:

"1. Has had certain requisite experience in the evolving life of a will creature, either as a temporary indweller on a type of world where Adjusters are only loaned to mortal subjects or on an actual fusion planet where the human failed of survival. Such a Monitor is either an advanced or a supreme Adjuster.

"2. Has acquired the balance of spiritual power in a human who has made the third psychic circle and has had assigned to him a personal seraphic guardian.

"3. Has a subject who has made the supreme decision, has entered into a solemn and sincere betrothal with the Adjuster. The Adjuster looks beforehand to the time of actual fusion and reckons the union as an event of fact.

"4. Has a subject who has been mustered into one of the reserve corps of destiny on an evolutionary world of mortal ascension.

"5. At some time, during human sleep, has been temporarily detached from the mind of mortal incarceration to perform some exploit of liaison, contact, reregistration, or other extrahuman service associated with the spiritual administration of the world of assignment.

"6. Has served in a time of crisis in the experience of some human being who was the material complement of a spirit personality intrusted with the enactment of some cosmic achievement essential to the spiritual economy of the planet." (1196.3) 109:2.1


Or, perhaps the personalized adjusters?

Quote:
"Personalized Adjusters, those who have served with the incarnated Paradise Sons, together with many who have achieved unusual distinction during the mortal indwelling, but whose subjects rejected survival. We have reasons for believing that such Adjusters are personalized on the recommendations of the Ancients of Days of the superuniverse of their assignment." (1179.2) 107:2.8


In any case, you may find this list of references helpful. http://www.urantia.org/theology-urantia ... -adjusters

Having found the reference you referred to, the answer to your question is in #3, following your referenced paragraph.

Quote:
114:7.2 (1257.2) When human beings are chosen as protectors of planetary destiny, when they become pivotal individuals in the plans which the world administrators are prosecuting, at that time the planetary chief of seraphim confirms their temporal attachment to the seraphic corps and appoints personal destiny guardians to serve with these mortal reservists. All reservists have self-conscious Adjusters, and most of them function in the higher cosmic circles of intellectual achievement and spiritual attainment.

114:7.3 (1257.3) Mortals of the realm are chosen for service in the reserve corps of destiny on the inhabited worlds because of:

114:7.4 (1257.4) 1. Special capacity for being secretly rehearsed for numerous possible emergency missions in the conduct of various activities of world affairs.

114:7.5 (1257.5) 2. Wholehearted dedication to some special social, economic, political, spiritual, or other cause, coupled with willingness to serve without human recognition and rewards.

114:7.6 (1257.6) 3. The possession of a Thought Adjuster of extraordinary versatility and probable pre-Urantia experience in coping with planetary difficulties and contending with impending world emergency situations.


Remember, too, that reservists are not conscious of their status as reservists. They act "unconsciously". (114:7:10)

Interesting... Just a hunch: it would seem that a typical adjuster is more or less an ambassador of Paradise. It works in the mind of a human by presenting a divine perspective and inclination to a human. It's focus is on preparation for an eternal career. It's working partner is probably the highest status supervising angel associated with the human.

But maybe the self-acting aduster (a "self-conscious adjuster) is particularly aware of and focused on the immediate and near future concerns of the planet. In that, it may differentiate itself from a typical adjuster. It's working partners might include many more beings than the high angels, such as the midwayers.
