It's good to consider that the Milky Way galaxy may be far larger than currently believed by the main stream community. One thing to recognize is that our galaxy is far longer than it is wide, maybe by a factor of 5 or 10, if we listen to the revelators. In other words, we see the extent of its width but cannot see its depth.

32:2.11 (359.8 ) The Satania system of inhabited worlds is far removed from Uversa and that great sun cluster which functions as the physical or astronomic center of the seventh superuniverse. From Jerusem, the headquarters of Satania, it is over two hundred thousand light-years to the physical center of the superuniverse of Orvonton, far, far away in the dense diameter of the Milky Way. Satania is on the periphery of the local universe, and Nebadon is now well out towards the edge of Orvonton. From the outermost system of inhabited worlds to the center of the superuniverse is a trifle less than two hundred and fifty thousand light-years.

This link identifies at least 7 likely candidates for the major sectors: Norma Arm, Scutum-Crux Arm, Sagittarius Arm, Orion Spur, Perseus Arm, Cygnus Arm and the central "Bulge". I'd guess that The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds might be one or more major sectors and that additional satellite galaxies may encompass other major sectors.

Thank you Riktare, that's pretty much what I suspected. I found that site too.

Do you recall reading anything about our ability to see other superuniverses? I'm under the impression that everything we see with the naked eye, our telescopes and satellites is either within Orvonton or in the outer space levels. I know each superuniverse is discreet, that all the superuniverses are isolated from one another, which makes me think that we would be unable to see them, but I can't recall if I made that up or read it somewhere.

I believe it was said that practically all the starry realms visible to the naked eye are within Orvonton. The clarifier "starry" to me indicates that galaxies are not included in that statement. But that's a matter of interpretation.

This just off the presses...

Turns Out, We Were Wrong About Milky Way Mass - Our Galaxy Is HUGE!

Since the Milky Way and Andromeda (M31) both appear to be "normal" grand spirals, and since the visible disk of the Milky Way appears to be much smaller than the visible disk of M31, the surprise here is that the Milky Way appears to be exerting MUCH more gravitational effect on its local set of globular clusters...

Current explanations involve (1) invisible and (2) unseen mass.

The invisible ("dark") mass-energy would be like the UB's ultimata (11:8.6) and segregata (11:8.5).

The "unseen" stuff would be stars and spirals hidden behind the "dense diameter of the Milky Way" (32:2.11). This "dense diameter" effectively creates an infrared "line of avoidance": since our line-of-sight toward that diameter is co-planar with the thin disk of the Milky Way, any infrared signature from gravita (11:8.7) lying behind that dense diameter would -- like a faint background echo -- be lost behind the foreground infrared glare of the Milky Way.

So one simple way to fit this new gravitational data is to put lots of invisible and unseen stuff "far, far away" behind that "dense diameter of the Milky Way" (359.8, 32:2.11).

UB 15:3.2 wrote:
"From the astronomical position of Urantia, as you look through the cross section of near-by systems to the great Milky Way, you observe that the spheres of Orvonton are traveling in a vast elongated plane, the breadth being far greater than the thickness and the length far greater than the breadth." (167.18 15:3.2)

So, Orvonton's length is "far greater than the breadth"... ?!

thanks Riktare!
