Organization of the Universe According to the Urantia Book !

Our scientists and astronomers in various astrophysical laboratories and universities in the world are working hard to theorise and prove the origin and organization of the universe. Inventions in telescopy and capability to go out in to the orbits of our planet and beyond in the last few decades have given us some confidence that we can eventually solve the mysteries regarding all these.

NASA's scientists using their Hubble Space Telescope have been doing immense discoveries regarding far flung star clusters, black holes and nebulae that are beyond the understanding of the common masses, for the past few years.

But with all these scientific studies, could they come up to some precise understanding of the universe ?

Perhaps not.

Okay, I leave them to find out those things in their own way.

But the super human authors of the Urantia Book [My favorite book ! If you have not heard about it, know more about it by clicking the hyperlink ! ] have already told me more about the organization of the universe which itself is beyond my comprehension.

Since they (the authors) are non-material beings, they do not have the limitations of the human beings or even the Hubble telescope. They are visitors to the far flung globes and they know for sure what they speak of !

Let me reproduce some of those things that they have revealed to us through the book that I mentioned which explains the way the universe is organized :

The immensity of the far-flung creation of the Universal Father (God) is utterly beyond the grasp of finite imagination; the enormousness of the master universe staggers the concept of even my order of being. But the mortal mind can be taught much about the plan and arrangement of the universes; you can know something of their physical organization and marvelous administration; you may learn much about the various groups of intelligent beings who inhabit the seven superuniverses of time and the central universe of eternity.

In principle, that is, in eternal potential, we conceive of material creation as being infinite because the Universal Father is actually infinite, but as we study and observe the total material creation, we know that at any given moment in time it is limited, although to your finite minds it is comparatively limitless, virtually boundless.

We are convinced, from the study of physical law and from the observation of the starry realms, that the infinite Creator is not yet manifest in finality of cosmic expression, that much of the cosmic potential of the Infinite is still self-contained and unrevealed.

To created beings the master universe might appear to be almost infinite, but it is far from finished; there are still physical limits to the material creation, and the experiential revelation of the eternal purpose is still in progress.

The authors give us much details about the eternal centre of the universe. According to them the enormous special material body which is stationary and non-spherical and of eternal existence is the central nucleus of the whole of the Universe. They designate this Universe with a word that is familiar to many of us that we use for denoting the residence of God. That is Paradise ! [ You may read more about this in this blog : Paradise is not an Imagination; It is Real ! ] Now let us see more about the organization of the Universe or more precisely the universes:

Proceeding outward from Paradise through the horizontal extension of pervaded space, the master universe is existent in six concentric ellipses, the space levels encircling the central Isle:
1. The Central Universe—Havona. 2. The Seven Superuniverses. 3. The First Outer Space Level. 4. The Second Outer Space Level. 5. The Third Outer Space Level 6. The Fourth and Outermost Space Level.
Havona, the central universe, is not a time creation; it is an eternal existence. This never-beginning, never-ending universe consists of one billion spheres of sublime perfection and is surrounded by the enormous dark gravity bodies. At the center of Havona is the stationary and absolutely stabilized Isle of Paradise, surrounded by its twenty-one satellites. Owing to the enormous encircling masses of the dark gravity bodies about the fringe of the central universe, the mass content of this central creation is far in excess of the total known mass of all seven sectors of the grand universe.

The Paradise-Havona System, the eternal universe encircling the eternal Isle, constitutes the perfect and eternal nucleus of the master universe; all seven of the superuniverses and all regions of outer space revolve in established orbits around the gigantic central aggregation of the Paradise satellites and the Havona spheres.

The Seven Superuniverses are not primary physical organizations; nowhere do their boundaries divide a nebular family, neither do they cross a local universe, a prime creative unit. Each superuniverse is simply a geographic space clustering of approximately one seventh of the organized and partially inhabited post-Havona creation, and each is about equal in the number of local universes embraced and in the space encompassed. Nebadon, your local universe, is one of the newer creations in Orvonton, the seventh superuniverse.

The Grand Universe is the present organized and inhabited creation. It consists of the seven superuniverses, with an aggregate evolutionary potential of around seven trillion inhabited planets, not to mention the eternal spheres of the central creation. But this tentative estimate takes no account of architectural administrative spheres, neither does it include the outlying groups of unorganized universes. The present ragged edge of the grand universe, its uneven and unfinished periphery, together with the tremendously unsettled condition of the whole astronomical plot, suggests to our star students that even the seven superuniverses are, as yet, uncompleted. As we move from within, from the divine center outward in any one direction, we do, eventually, come to the outer limits of the organized and inhabited creation; we come to the outer limits of the grand universe. And it is near this outer border, in a far-off corner of such a magnificent creation, that your local universe has its eventful existence.

The Outer Space Levels. Far out in space, at an enormous distance from the seven inhabited superuniverses, there are assembling vast and unbelievably stupendous circuits of force and materializing energies. Between the energy circuits of the seven superuniverses and this gigantic outer belt of force activity, there is a space zone of comparative quiet, which varies in width but averages about four hundred thousand light-years. These space zones are free from star dust—cosmic fog. Our students of these phenomena are in doubt as to the exact status of the space-forces existing in this zone of relative quiet which encircles the seven superuniverses. But about one-half million light-years beyond the periphery of the present grand universe we observe the beginnings of a zone of an unbelievable energy action which increases in volume and intensity for over twenty-five million light-years. These tremendous wheels of energizing forces are situated in the first outer space level, a continuous belt of cosmic activity encircling the whole of the known, organized, and inhabited creation.

My dear reader, there are more of such information in the Urantia Book.

Information that is being revealed for the first time to human beings at a time they have evolved to a level to understand such complex knowledge at least to some extent.

Personally speaking I am thrilled to know that there are nearly 7 trillion material spheres in this Universe where intelligent living beings like we humans of earth live. I am also thrilled to know about the 100 billion odd non-evolutionary administrative worlds in this Universe.

The authors of the Urantia Book inform me the reason why they are invisible to me and also about the future likely adventure that is in store for human beings like me. Many of us are thrilled to visit other parts of our world now. Imagine the future when we are in a position to visit other worlds ! Ofcourse that is a future that exists after we cease to exist as material beings ! Our scientist Einstein had already found out that materials cannot travel more than the speed of light. And all those worlds are many light years away !

They remind  us the limitations that we have now due to which we are unable to visit the other worlds, though our NASA scientists are now in a position to scientifically deduce the existence of those worlds.

In other words the Urantia Book authors assure us of the existence of God and a Universe Administration intelligently doing every thing for some good cause.

More than anything else it reinforces my belief in God !

Now my belief is not just a belief, it is a conviction !

I would be very happy if you too get that conviction !

Because a lowly earth being who lives with firm and truthful conviction about the existence of God and His purpose is a potential Universe Citizen !

  1. We really appreciate that you took a lot of pains to prepare this analysis. As I had noted in one of my comments before, the existential quest has been deeply moving within me as well. That said, I just cannot accept any knowledge in the virgin state of 'being given'. Knowledge that is not verifiable is faith and there is no verifiable way to rate different faiths in terms of superiority. The other day, I was listening to a scientist-turned Catholic priest and I understood that he was merely shutting down his brain whenever he had to talk about his faith. Putting a Grand Daddy as the answer to all currently unknown / unknowable questions is nihilistic and it just kills the thirst for knowledge and possible advancement of science. I know, I am not an expert. And, once again, thanks for sharing.

    1. 'Putting a Grand Daddy as the answer to all questions is' not 'nihilistic' as you commented because nihilism is the thought that everything is unreal where as what the Urantia Book categorically stresses is about the reality of that Grand Daddy. With out present state of limited mind capacity we can possibly think about the origin of the universe as a state when either nothing existed or something existed, both of which you cannot prove. But if nothing existed, then possibly nothing would ever come into being. On the other hand if something, that something that covered the potentials for everything including mind, then every thing is possible. And that possibility thereafter is the revealed knowledge in the book that I stated. Again, the authors of the book do not wish to give such knowledge to us just for the sake of it. You have to learn that book to find it out !
