In the Parts 1-3, we have discussed man’s mystical approach to heaven and hell; science and astronomy’s understanding of the expanse; and, religions’ stronghold on mysticism. Part 4 is the Urantia Books presentation of man and his relation to the heavens. In the Urantia Papers, science, religion and history all combine for a make-sense cohesive presentation of mankind, time and space.
In the Urantia Papers, Adam and Eve were brought here from Edentia, our Constellation capital, to reclaim the fallen world. Literal ‘earth’ bodies were made for them when they arrived here (approx. 32,000 years ago). The Edenic pair were advised heavily “not to mix their seed with the seed of the Nodites” who were the evolved natives of Earth, of the previous 470,000 years.
However, with such desolate conditions on Earth and through the sophisteries of Satan, Eve succumed (literally) to the “mixing of the seed” bringing about a 2nd major default.
Eve’s immortal status was altered. Adam chose to traverse with Eve. Both, ultimately suffered death just as their native neighbors outside the garden. Thus, our beautiful 3rd rock from the Sun suffered a double-whammy–the Lucifer/Satan rebellion, and now the “fall of Adam.”
Michael of Nebadon attempts a rescue mission…
Keep in mind, there are millions of worlds in our Milky Way that are created and inhabited. In one sector of that Milky Way, the system of Satania, one third had joined a dark rebellion, and were ‘isolated’ from the rest to contain the widespread infection of evil. Earth (Urantia) was wounded most in this ‘war in heaven’ having suffered now 2 major defaults, and was nearing exhaustion.
In such dire conditions the very Creator himself (Michael/Jesus) put in motion a plan to personally come to our rescue, literally. There was much preparation to be done between Adam’s death and Jesus’ birth – in an effort to bring about a successful reception. One of high order “a High Priest of the Most Highs of Edentia” was sent ahead of time to prepare the way.
Enter Machiventa Melchizedek, about 2000 BC…
This magnificent personage literally took on human form (in a manner not disclosed), founded Salem (later called Jerusalem), and sought out his students to teach of the One God that was to come.
Abraham was a very successful military leader of men, and had conjoined many of the tribes to a federation against any conceived enemy. However, there was one group, the Salem city under the reigns of King Melchizedek, of which he had great regard for and somewhat feared. Abraham, in his wisdome sought to make alliances with this Melchizedek, rather than try to conquer him. Hence, the Abraham/Melchizedek association that has changed the course of history.
Melchizedek taught Abraham and his family about the great rebellion, the default of Adam, and of the game-plan in which the very Creator of the entire Universe, millions of inhabited worlds and billions of stars, had elected to become a lowly earth child. The Hebrew line, under the direction Melchizedek through Abraham–was the race (tribe) charged to carry the One God torch so-to-speak, and so they did. Hence, the Old Testament and the Torah.
Abraham’s descendants (Isrealites and the nation of Islam) were so driven to keep the “One God” teaching alive soas to over-ride their thousands of years of mysticism and binding traditions so as when Michael did arrive, there would be a chance of reception (hence, Moses, Isaiah, Daniel, etc). However, the powers that be simply rejected and crucified him—plunging us into the ‘dark ages’ starting 2000 years ago.
Back to the original topic–The Universe…
If, according to the Urantia Book, it is 250,000 light-years from the “outermost edge” of Milky Way to center of Milky Way; and 200,000 light-years from center to our local system headquarters world “Jerusem,” this leaves 50,000 light-years difference. And since HC and NASA say 26,000 light-years from Earth to ‘center’ … the question of this article is ‘center of what?’
With the information from the Urantia Papers, one could postulate that what our present-day scientists are calling the Milky Way may only be our system of Satania (which has presently 619 inhabited worlds and near-countless other planets and stars).
Or, is the 26,000 light-year figure in reality describing Nebadon—our local universe which comprises 100 systems (see chart below).
It is a logical likelihood, what History Channel and NASA’s experts are describing as 26,000 light years maybe very well be the whole “Local Universe—Nebadon” (Jesus’ personal creation) of which Satania is a small part.
The Urantia Papers describe Nabadon as having a present registry of 3,840,101 inhabited worlds (still very young in evolutionary time-line… maximum will be 10,000,000 worlds). What our scientists are calling Milky Way is most likely Nebadon. This would make more sense given the approximate 50,000 light-years difference in the words above.
Urantia Book 32.2.11 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.”
One could calculate then, the ‘superuniverse’ of Orvonton what the Urantia Papers call our “Milky Way” is approx. 500,000 light years diameter. That is 10 times more light-years than our present astronomers thinking.
In essence then, the Milky Way is one of 7 such ‘super-galaxies’ that revolve around the central perfect universe of Havona—the center of which is the Isle of Paradise.
The Grand Universe.Seven superuniverses make up the present organized grand universe, consisting of approximately seven trillion inhabitable worlds plus the architectural spheres and the one billion inhabited spheres of Havona. The superuniverses are ruled and administered indirectly and reflectively from Paradise by the Seven Master Spirits. The billion worlds of Havona are directly administered by the Eternals of Days, one such Supreme Trinity Personality presiding over each of these perfect spheres.
15:2.10Excluding the Paradise-Havona spheres, the plan of universe organization provides for the following units:
15:2.11Each of the seven superuniverses is constituted, approximately, as follows:
One system embraces, approximately
One constellation (100 systems)
One universe (100 constellations)
One minor sector (100 universes)
One major sector (100 minor sectors)
One superuniverse (10 major sectors)
15:2.12All such estimates are approximations at best, for new systems are constantly evolving while other organizations are temporarily passing out of material existence.
