The understandings of truth, beauty, and goodness, morality, ethics, duty, love, divinity, origin, existence, purpose, destiny, time, space, even Deity, are only relatively true.

"These three basic factors in reflective thinking may be unified and co-ordinated in personality development, or they may become disproportionate and virtually unrelated in their respective functions. But when they become unified, they produce a strong character consisting in the correlation of a factual science, a moral philosophy, and a genuine religious experience. And it is these three cosmic intuitions that give objective validity, reality, to man's experience in and with things, meanings, and values."(16:6.10, 192.6)

This is like the idea of prayer in Bill Watterson's "Calvin & Hobbes" when Calvin wrote to "Chocolate-Frosted Sugar Bombs" a letter in the mail with "proof of purchase", to receive his complementary "beanie hat". After the letter was sent, Calvin was overcome with "expectancy". Of course this is my very immature interpretation of prayer ...
... Except that the answer to prayer is not so disappointing because the human is hoping for spiritual ends, not just capital. ...

112:6.4 In the morontia estate the ascending mortal is endowed with the Nebadon modification of the cosmic-mind endowment of the Master Spirit of Orvonton.
34:6.1 With the advancing evolution of an inhabited planet and the further spiritualization of its inhabitants, additional spiritual influences may be received by such mature personalities. As mortals progress in mind control and spirit perception, these multiple spirit ministries become more and more co-ordinate in function; they become increasingly blended with the overministry of the Paradise Trinity.
36:5.3 These life-mind emplacements are perfect indicators of living mind function for the first five adjutants. But with regard to the sixth and seventh adjutant spirits—worship and wisdom—these central lodgments record only a qualitative function. The quantitative activity of the adjutant of worship and the adjutant of wisdom is registered in the immediate presence of the Divine Minister on Salvington, being a personal experience of the Universe Mother Spirit.
36:5.14 These mind-adjutants of a local universe Mother Spirit are related to creature life of intelligence status much as the power centers and physical controllers are related to the nonliving forces of the universe.
38:9.7 twelve levels of intellectual response to the joint ministry of the last two adjutant spirits and the morontia mind.
I believe there are 10 additional levels of adjutant cosmic mind force operational in the morontia based on this last quotation, but it is a description of Secondary (Adamic) Midwayer Creatures. However, in the progression of the morontial being, he transitions towards becoming likened unto seraphim, passing through the likeness of Secondary then Primary Midwayer. Wow maybe it is not proper to regard those levels of intellectual response as being part of the cosmic adjutant mind. You're right. Those levels are not the realm of the Divine Minister, but rather encircuited through "the Nebadon modification of the cosmic-mind endowment of the Master Spirit of Orvonton."
