Please, when they talk about "on earth" and "in adjacent space regions", what do they mean? "on the land" and "n the air (or atmosphere)"?


(664.6) 58:1.5 But as this era opens, Urantia is in every way evolving toward a state favorable for the support of the initial forms of marine life. Slowly but surely physical developments on earth and in adjacent space regions are preparing the stage for the later attempts to establish such life forms as we had decided would be best adapted to the unfolding physical environment — both terrestrial and spatial.

Thank you!

Greetings Angel,

I think you're right. They're referring to the development of an atmosphere (adjacent space) and sheltered bays (terrestrial) that would be ideal for growth of life.

In Friendship,
Rexford

I think "adjacent space regions" also includes regions outside the atmosphere-- where debris were slowly starting to dwindle and consequently the space regions itself was becoming more stable.

Thank you, both.
In friendship too.

The space that the Earth traverses in its path around the sun and in all the other revolutions may be what the revelators call "adjacent space regions". One aspect of that space is that it may contain very powerful cosmic rays as well as ultraviolet rays and solar flares, most of which are deadly. As mentioned, the atmosphere provides an effective shield for those. But the evolution of the sun and other structures and energy paths in the Local Universe, Constellation and System may also have been necessary before life could survive on this planet.

I just came across these statements. The one about the electron spinning in an opposite direction is especially intriguing.

Quote:
58:3.2 (667.1) This short-ray energy charge of universe space is four hundred times greater than all other forms of radiant energy existing in the organized space domains. The output of short space rays, whether coming from the blazing nebulae, tense electric fields, outer space, or the vast hydrogen dust clouds, is modified qualitatively and quantitatively by fluctuations of, and sudden tension changes in, temperature, gravity, and electronic pressures.

58:3.3 (667.2) These eventualities in the origin of the space rays are determined by many cosmic occurrences as well as by the orbits of circulating matter, which vary from modified circles to extreme ellipses. Physical conditions may also be greatly altered because the electron spin is sometimes in the opposite direction from that of the grosser matter behavior, even in the same physical zone.

58:3.4 (667.3) The vast hydrogen clouds are veritable cosmic chemical laboratories, harboring all phases of evolving energy and metamorphosing matter. Great energy actions also occur in the marginal gases of the great binary stars which so frequently overlap and hence extensively commingle. But none of these tremendous and far-flung energy activities of space exerts the least influence upon the phenomena of organized life — the germ plasm of living things and beings. These energy conditions of space are germane to the essential environment of life establishment, but they are not effective in the subsequent modification of the inheritance factors of the germ plasm as are some of the longer rays of radiant energy. The implanted life of the Life Carriers is fully resistant to all of this amazing flood of the short space rays of universe energy.

58:3.5 (667.4) All of these essential cosmic conditions had to evolve to a favorable status before the Life Carriers could actually begin the establishment of life on Urantia.

It could also refer to Monmatia as a whole. The intensity of radiation from the sun, the amount of asteroidal debris, the gravity balance of neighboring planets, and other factors could be at play in the forming of suitable conditions for life.
