Links to updated versions of two sets of videos:

(1) On matters cosmological:

This first set concerns matters cosmological. The idea is to describe (predict) ultimatonic foundations, sufficient to explain current standard models in both cosmology and particle physics.

Videos:
Part 4A - Foundations (v2)
Part 4B1 - Mass and Matter (part 1)
Part 4B2 - Mass and Matter (part 2)
Part 4C - Exploding Dark Islands (v2)

Playlist: Urantia Book Cosmology

Scripts:
Part 4A: Foundations (PDF)
Part 4B: Mass and Matter (PDF)
Part 4C: Exploding Dark Islands (PDF)

Part 4 D (upcoming) will focus on what the above implies for gravitational action on the evolution of material structures, both large and small.


(2) On matters personal:

This 2nd set explores the more personal side of the 5th epochal revelation,

Videos:
Part 1 - Universe Frames (v3)
Part 2 - the Personal Universe (v3)
Part 3 - a Family Affair (v3)

Playlist: The Urantia Book and Personality

Scripts:
P1: Universe Frames (PDF)
P2: the Personal Universe (PDF)
P3: a Family Affair (PDF)


Regarding possible connections between ultimatons and current scientific work, the idea of "ghostly axions" -- appearing mysteriously within a "primordial condensate of charge" -- is becoming a favored contender for explaining two types of invisible mass that seem to be shaping (a) galaxies and (b) large scale structure.

And in his 2005 book, "A Different Universe: Reinventing Physics from the Bottom Down", Robert Laughlin (Nobel/Physics 1998) hinted that electrons might emerge from "hundreds of such little ghosts, linking arms". He (and others) seem to be one small step from the UB idea: that the quantized complexity of fermion properties might emerge from "clusters of clusters of huddling ultimatons".

Using current terminology, we might think of ultimatons as "axionic preons".

Given the preliminary stage of this work, I can easily adjust stuff. So if anyone has ideas on what to change, improve or delete, or just general criticism, please let me know!

with thanks,
Nigel

Thanks for posting this Nigel. I haven't had the time to watch the entire series again yet but pondered something yesterday.

In thinking about how stars could be thrown off a maternal nebula at great velocities we need to account for the very considerable amount of rotational or angular momentum either parts of the nebula or the entire aggregation must contain. But how can that arise?

If nebulae are essentially gas clouds, how can a cloud develop such high angular momentum? What holds the aggregate together when centrifugal force should hurl it apart? This mystery is probably closely related to the phenomenon being interpreted as Dark Matter.

Hi Riktare -- I have a go at "angular momentum" in video Part 4C, from time 12:30, or from page 17 in the pdf script.

Two things of interest:

(1) The presence of an "associate" master force organizer is sufficient to inject angular momentum into a halo of segregata ("inaugurate the energy whirl", 57:1.6). This gets the ball rolling.

(2) angular momentum acting in a frictionless medium (superfluid) tends to quantize. In various places in those videos I suggest that the quantum of angular momentum (and the quantum of gravitational response) sits on the mature ultimaton. If true, this simple fact would kick-start a fresh phase in native physics.

Here's something I'd love a second opinion on:

This link to an ESO video (European Southern Observatory) shows a 56 second zoom through the Milky Way, to lensed quasar PKS 1830-211:
ESO wrote:

This clip indicates the current capacity of telescopes (and thus astronomers) to see through the Milky Way's so-called "zone of avoidance". Notice at around time index t=26 seconds and t=47 seconds the change of telescopes and filters. Best watched at hi-res/720p, boosting screen gamma and brightness to see the detail.

Point of this clip is to indicate the sort of stellar density astronomers find along the midplane of the Milky Way.

Currently, astronomers estimate that most of the Milky Way's main sequence stars are found in a so-called "thin disk", about 1,000 light years thick. So for telescopes at our location in space (26,000 light years from the Sgr A* center of the Milky Way), this "dense diameter of the Milky Way (32:2.11)" would subtend an angle of about 2 degrees.

But PKS 1830-211 has a galactic latitude of about -5.7 degrees. So this zoom through the Milky Way actually zooms well below that "dense diameter".

So here's the question: if our trillion-star neighbor M31 were gravitationally compacted to be the same size and shape as the Milky Way, and re-located 200,000 light years behind the Milky Way, at galactic coordinates (0 degrees latitude, 35 degrees longitude), aligned so it's thin disk were in the same galactic plane as ours, would astronomers be able to detect it?

The issue for me is that, at any available wavelength (x-ray, optical, infrared, microwave, radio), the electromagnetic profile of that hypothetical near-neighbor spiral would be a faint echo of the foreground Milky Way. Does this make sense?

Over the next few months, I'll make slides and movies to illustrate more clearly what I mean. Meanwhile, any thoughts about this?

Meanwhile, getting back to the script for video Part 4 D, "Ancient Orvonton, and a young cosmic web",

If anyone is familiar with current issues in astronomy and cosmology, and if they have the time, could they please review and criticise my notes (available here), especially regarding these two points:

Speculations wrote:
1. the idea that McCall's so-called "Council of Giants" marks the inner margin of the first outer space level; and that this first outer space level might correspond to what astronomers have identified as the "Local Sheet" (see slides 6 and 7).

2. the proposed explanation for large, systematic cosmological redshifts (see slides 59-66).

These ideas are easier to see in the animated PowerPoint file, rather than the (possibly confusing, static, overlaid) elements seen in the PDF (both files available here).

To those who know enough to understand the problem, here's an example of an issue that has been in the mainstream and pop.sci news for the last few years:

Explaining the expansion rate of the universe:

Extrapolating from nearby supernova (out to z<1), the current value of the Hubble parameter was thought to be around "72". New data (2019), from local recalibration, have raised this estimate to over "74".

But extrapolating from distant supernova (z>4), and from an assumed redshifted surface of last scattering (CMB), this value would have to be around "68". The difference in these predictions is thought to be due to variation in the rate of expansion over the last 13 or 14 billion years.

Last week a team adjusted their 2018 paper to include that 2019 analysis of HST data, showing how a slight perturbation of current theory could resolve the discrepancy between these two core predictions of big bang cosmology... They add a third change in the rate of acceleration in the expansion history of the universe (review article here).

Which brings to mind that idea from 2015 by Ringermarcher and Mead (arxiv pre-print here, slides here), that the rate of change of acceleration has "jerked" (3rd derivative of position) 6 or 7 times over the last 14 billion years.

At the same time, precision cosmology is making it clear just how improbable the inflationary lambda-CDM-Hot Big Bang model is. To get around this "statistical impossibility", some heavy hitters in the field of cosmology have subscribed to belief in a multiverse. In such a multiverse, nature naturally runs every permutation of every possible universe. Given the facts (e.g., that humans exist to reflect on such things), this sort of multiverse is seen as the last great hope for explaining the universe, without giving up all respectability and allowing room in their scheme for a sentient Causer.

That's a quick hint about uncertainties and confusions in the core of mainstream cosmology. And there are more! So before the next decade of high-precision surveys reveal too many inconvenient facts, this is the perfect time to plant new models.

Anyone able to assist?

Nigel

Hi Nigel,

I'll take a look over the long weekend. Spontaneously it seems to me that significant "jerks" in the rate of acceleration would be extremely difficult to rationalize as enormous amounts of energy or structure would seem to be necessary to accomplish that. That's quite counter to the "Give me one free miracle and I'll explain everything" principle behind paradigms like the Big Bang Theory (to take a conceptual cue from a well known biologist).

Hi Nigel,

The Ringermacher-Mead paper is very, very interesting. I'm inclined to take on a similar study. If I understand correctly, the analysis and harmonics are found using Fourier Analysis in such a way that reveals spherical harmonics as a factor of radius (distance from The Earth). I would also like to analyze the harmonics as a factor of angle (probably starting with a fixed axis around the galactic super-plane).

Neat! If you could pick up where Ringermacher and Mead leave off, with a hint of revelation to point the way...

PS: If you can play the PowerPoint file (P4_D_May19.pptx, available here), there's a brief animation from slide 44 to 47 showing a "Big Bang" merging into Ringermacher's oscillations, thence the Urantia Book's gentle, 2-billion-year long cycles of space respiration.

With regard to containing the angular momentum in those "tremendous cyclones of force (15:4.4)", those "energy cyclones of space (29:5.5)", and that "vast cyclone of space (57:1.6)", I just noticed something.

As we know, segregata ("pure energy", "primordial force", 42:2.9) is said to be non-responsive both to paradise and to linear gravity. However, 42:2.8 points out another type of responsiveness:

UB 42:2.8 wrote:
"Passive and potential force becomes active and primordial in response to the resistance afforded by the space presence of the Primary Eventuated Master Force Organizers. Force is now emerging from the exclusive domain of the Unqualified Absolute into the realms of multiple response -- response to certain primal motions initiated by the God of Action and thereupon to certain compensating motions emanating from the Universal Absolute. Primordial force is seemingly reactive to transcendental causation in proportion to absoluteness." (469.8, 42:2.8 )

Once segregated into "segregata" by the space presence of a primary eventuated master force organizer, not only does "active and primordial" force (42:2.8 ) become responsive to "certain primal motions", and "certain compensating motions", but it also becomes "seemingly reactive to transcendental causation". So if gravitationally non-responsive segregata can respond to "certain primal motions", and react to "transcendental causation", then here's the punch line:

What is a "transcendental master force organizer" if not "transcendental causation" ?

Thus when we consider the evolution of a cyclone of (gravitationally non-responsive) segregata into (gravitationally responding) ULTIMATA, could that cyclone of space be literally a "cyclone of space", not merely a cyclone IN space? Has that tag-team of force organizers set up a transcendental (absonite, non-gravitational) anchor around which space itself swirls (i.e. non-gravitational frame-dragging) ?!

From 42:2.12,
UB 42:2.12 wrote:
"[...] the energy elaboration resulting from the pressure-presence and the tension-trends set up by the Associate Transcendental Master Force Organizers. [...]" (470.3, 42:2.12)

Does this "pressure-presence" and "tension-trend" set up a primal motion within space, such that primordial force "goes with the flow", swirling around that transcendental anchor?

Those are very well thought out ideas and observations. In the coming weeks it might be interesting to try to express some of the relationships mathematically and think about them further.

Okay a very difficult idea, but I just want you to question how such directionization might be brought about, if segregata are at first nonresponsive. IS that directionization more like "the inflating of a balloon" than the type which provides a vector/velocity to the unit? Energization based in imputing mind forces involved in the future universe experience into what will become the ultimaton? Is there something about matter, because God the Third Source is omniscient, that contains Providence in the ultimaton, based in its post-experiencial and reciprocative interaction with universe creatures.


Okay that sound a little far-fetched but I say that the post-segregata initial phase of directionization cannot be a 3-D form of directionization, it has to be an "existential form" of directionization, the Cosmic Mind lending to the matter, something existential that will be released in the experiencial unfolding of the seven universes: eventually.

And on that type of endowment, yes we would be dealing with something like monota given existentially to the core of each particle, before such particle released into the grand universe orbit.

Hi SEla_Kelly,

Interesting to reflect on how time-transcending absonite attributes -- and requirements -- can be made to repercuss on time-dependent levels. As the papers reveal, eventuated and transcendental agents are involved in making "space potency" accessible for finite manipulation and purposes.

SEla_Kelly wrote:
"[...] the post-segregata initial phase of directionization cannot be a 3-D form of directionization, it has to be an "existential form" of directionization [...]"

And I like your idea of putting, side by side, the concepts of monota and the ultimaton. Notice in 42:10.1 the idea that (relative) material reality happens in a domain bounded by (a) monota and (b) space potency,

UB 42:10.1 wrote:
"The endless sweep of relative cosmic reality, from the absoluteness of Paradise monota to the absoluteness of space potency, is suggestive of..." (42:10.1)

Notice also that the concept of monota is closely related to the concept of absolutum:

absolutum: "the original nonspiritual expression of the First Source and Center;" (11:2.9)
monota: "the nonspiritual energy system of the Universal Father." (42:2.19)

Also, that space potency is also called "absoluta". So we might speculate that the span of (relative) material reality sits between absolutum and absoluta. Which triggers a curious thought:

If Paradise monota is an arrangement of Paradise absolutum, and if the First Source and Center were somehow to "melt" monota, say by dissolving it with space ("a bestowal of Paradise", 11:7.4, 12:5.1), would that make "dissolved monota" the same thing as absoluta, i.e. space potency ?

Consider how the Primary (eventuated) master force organizers condense segregata from space potency, and how their associates, the Associated (transcendental) master force organizers quantize ultimatons from that segregata... Can we think of ultimatons as a quantity of segregata from which all space has been "squeezed out" ?

If so, does this suggest a mature ultimaton can be thought of as a "mite of monota"? Would this connection give us a hint as to why absolute gravity connects ultimatons with Paradise?

Just speculating!!
Nigel

Thanks! Very intriguing questions about monota indeed! Can I say this: the monota is like the great Atom, the cosmic singularity of the universe, and the original material form of the Universal Father.

I can only say that the materiality of the Central Universe would be essential in order to understand how there is a true "net balance" between the reality, even the physical actuality, amongst the creatures of the seventh universe, and the beings of the seven circuits of the central universe. Each ultimaton may contain such balance. If you could comprehend the invention of a single ultimaton. But clay earthen creatures who fully constituted and harmonized by singular ultimata, haha imagine some kind of "absolution" "dissolvement", a "scattering of each singular atom", in order to imagine how a single segregatum might be procured.

Fascinating ideas. I need to set aside more time to ponder all of this...

A new paper that highlights the empirical "tension" between the various measurements that are interpreted to apply to spatial expansion at various cosmological times:

In the Grand Universe we know that the Universe Power Directors are not able to counter the physical effects produced by the Unqualified Absolute. But the revelators tease us by divulging the existence of 2 transcendental force organizers and then give us scant details of who they are and what they do exactly:

29:0.1 (319.1) OF ALL the universe personalities concerned in the regulation of interplanetary and interuniverse affairs, the power directors and their associates have been the least understood on Urantia. While your races have long known of the existence of angels and similar orders of celestial beings, little information concerning the controllers and regulators of the physical domain has ever been imparted. Even now I am permitted fully to disclose only the last of the following three groups of living beings having to do with force control and energy regulation in the master universe:

29:0.2 (319.2) 1. Primary Eventuated Master Force Organizers.

29:0.3 (319.3) 2. Associate Transcendental Master Force Organizers.

29:0.4 (319.4) 3. Universe Power Directors.


Apparently the first group implements the plans of the Architects of the Master Universe using energy and force arising from the activities of the Unqualified Absolute. Being transcendental in nature, the implication is that non-finite characteristics are involved.
