The Master went on to explain to John how a child is wholly dependent on his parents and the associated home life for all his early concepts of everything intellectual, social, moral, and even spiritual since the family represents to the young child all that he can first know of either human or divine relationships. The child must derive his first impressions of the universe from the mother’s care; he is wholly dependent on the earthly father for his first ideas of the heavenly Father.

A female is just as much god-like as a male .

the universal father is the male figure amongst the trinity,
(1174.7) 106:9.11 Sooner or later all universe personalities begin to realize that the final quest of eternity is the endless exploration of infinity, the never-ending voyage of discovery into the absoluteness of the First Source and Center. Sooner or later we all become aware that all creature growth is proportional to Father identification. We arrive at the understanding that living the will of God is the eternal passport to the endless possibility of infinity itself. Mortals will sometime realize that success in the quest of the Infinite is directly proportional to the achievement of Fatherlikeness, and that in this universe age the realities of the Father are revealed within the qualities of divinity. And these qualities of divinity are personally appropriated by universe creatures in the experience of living divinely, and to live divinely means actually to live the will of God.
(1175.1) 106:9.12 To material, evolutionary, finite creatures, a life predicated on the living of the Father’s will leads directly to the attainment of spirit supremacy in the personality arena and brings such creatures one step nearer the comprehension of the Father-Infinite. Such a Father life is one predicated on truth, sensitive to beauty, and dominated by goodness. Such a God-knowing person is inwardly illuminated by worship and outwardly devoted to the wholehearted service of the universal brotherhood of all personalities, a service ministry which is filled with mercy and motivated by love, while all these life qualities are unified in the evolving personality on ever-ascending levels of cosmic wisdom, self-realization, God-finding, and Father worship.
human will can bring forth the exquisite melodies of God identification and consequent eternal
1.3.1.Even though you are “the offspring of God,” you ought not to think that the Father is like yourselves in form and physique because you are said to be created “in his image” — indwelt by Mystery Monitors
While God is to and in the universes all that we have portrayed, nevertheless, to you and to all other God-knowing creatures he is one, your Father and their Father. To personality God cannot be plural. God is Father to each of his creatures, and it is literally impossible for any child to have more than one father. ~ The Urantia Book, (56:4.4)

...A man and a woman, co-operating, even aside from family and offspring, are vastly superior in most ways to either two men or two women. This pairing of the sexes enhanced survival and was the very beginning of human society.....P.932 - §6

All the while they are just as god-like/father-like as a male.
Infact Jesus is the best representation of god so its likely he is a complete personality. He has an ability to understand both sexe's just like god and relate to all mortal's so I am sure even he is not even a he at all.
the quickest way for a tadpole to become a frog is to live each moment loyally as a tadpole

tub talks of the father which is an indication of the male. On some planets the male may rule the female, which is interesting, i imagine these men are real short compared to the women. immanuel told michael he would be of the male sex and michael is the representation of the universal father
The father naturally loves his child, but the child must develop his love for the father from the fear of what the father can do, through awe, dread, dependence, and reverence, to the appreciative and affectionate regard of love.
Jesus was all man, but his personality was not a human man nor womens personality it was a creator son personality. His personality is about as far from being human as fungus on a tree is. Micheal is not a human being, he lived a life in a male flesh body but his personality was not human. I gota have faith that the universe is controlled by a bunch of manly men? You are out to lunch on this one.and michael as jesus was all dude, just ask george michael, you've gotta have faith.

When someone reads the u.b and starts to looking at one half of the human race as more god-like than the other half, obviously they have seriously mis-read the book.

the opposite, tub only uses the term virgin to describe thought adjusters, and that's not an accident knowing we use the term virgin to describe a woman. the ta's are more like women than men and a man's wife is symbolic of a thought adjuster. note On the two-brain worlds, subsequent to the sojourn of a Paradise bestowal Son, virgin Adjusters are seldom assigned to persons who have unquestioned capacity for survival. It is our belief that on such worlds practically all Adjusters indwelling intelligent men and women of survival capacity belong to the advanced or to the supreme type,i didn't realize that which means most people on this planet are working with advanced or supreme adjusters, girls who have had a prior relationship. the real question is how many relationships on average does the average thought adjuster have before she fuses with a human, if it's 10 on average that's a lot of humans who don't survive eternally. i would also compare positive seraphim with male and negative seraphim with female, before you ask.
