Below UB passages seem to me indicate that the evolution of electron is intelligently guided or artificially made as well as naturally occurring. What is your understanding of the below passages?

42:4.3 (473.1) The power centers and their associates are much concerned in the work of transmuting the ultimaton into the circuits and revolutions of the electron. These unique beings control and compound power by their skillful manipulation of the basic units of materialized energy, the ultimatons. They are masters of energy as it circulates in this primitive state. In liaison with the physical controllers they are able to effectively control and direct energy even after it has transmuted to the electrical level, the so-called electronic stage. But their range of action is enormously curtailed when electronically organized energy swings into the whirls of the atomic systems. Upon such materialization, these energies fall under the complete grasp of the drawing power of linear gravity.

42:4.5 (473.3) Throughout all space, cold and other influences are at work creatively organizing ultimatons into electrons. Heat is the measurement of electronic activity, while cold merely signifies absence of heat — comparative energy rest — the status of the universal force-charge of space provided neither emergent energy nor organized matter were present and responding to gravity.

42:4.7 (473.5) Temperature — heat and cold — is secondary only to gravity in the realms of energy and matter evolution. Ultimatons are humbly obedient to temperature extremes. Low temperatures favor certain forms of electronic construction and atomic assembly, while high temperatures facilitate all sorts of atomic breakup and material disintegration.

42:4.8 (473.6) When subjected to the heat and pressure of certain internal solar states, all but the most primitive associations of matter may be broken up. Heat can thus largely overcome gravity stability. But no known solar heat or pressure can convert ultimatons back into puissant energy.

42:4.9 (473.7) The blazing suns can transform matter into various forms of energy, but the dark worlds and all outer space can slow down electronic and ultimatonic activity to the point of converting these energies into the matter of the realms. Certain electronic associations of a close nature, as well as many of the basic associations of nuclear matter, are formed in the exceedingly low temperatures of open space, being later augmented by association with larger accretions of materializing energy.

Forgive me for what may seem pedantic, but artificial would mean that it was created by man, using the dictionary definition. But I see what you mean, that it seems like beings can manifest electrons, and electrons can naturally occur.

Yes, power centers and their associates have the ability to orchestrate ultimatons into the formation of electrons and other associated matter. They do this by applying what they know of God's physical laws with their endowed abilities. The force organizers can harness the force-charge of space to form those pre-ultimatonic and ultimatonic levels of energy. The power directors and physical controllers are more like cooks; They still need basic material energy ingredients to work with. So I would hesitate to say they "create" electrons, maybe it's better to say that they "build" them or "arrange" them?

And as the other passages point out, other natural physical phenomena also result in the formation of electrons-- temperature is a big factor. You get enough ultimatons together and electrons can naturally occur, given the right conditions.

In the last paragraph I interpret "electronic associations" as essentially chemical associations, i.e. molecules. Or just basic elements (nuclear matter). When you think about it it makes sense... the hotter things are, the more energy, the more the ultimatons are liberated. The cooler it is, the less energy, and less motion, creating conditions ripe for the condensation of ultimatons into electrons.
