(668.1) 58:4.3 500,000,000 years ago primitive marine vegetable life was well established on Urantia. Greenland and the arctic land mass, together with North and South America, were beginning their long and slow westward drift. Africa moved slightly south, creating an east and west trough, the Mediterranean basin, between itself and the mother body. Antarctica, Australia, and the land indicated by the islands of the Pacific broke away on the south and east and have drifted far away since that day.

Please, what do they refer to when they say “mother body”?

Hi Angel,

It seems the revelators refer to the largest remnant of the once super-continent (called Gondwana by some) as "the mother body".
The mother body may have had the single largest amount of mass and the greatest adhesion to the planet's crust. And therefore it should have moved the least.

Here the mother body is called Laurasia.
