Massive Orvonton

As students of the Urantia papers, should we take seriously “the Isle of Paradise?” What about “space potency” and “force organizers?” If we can accept such things, then it seems reasonable to take one more step, and take seriously their description of the ultimaton, “the first measureable form of energy.” [Paper 42:1.2] Given all this, … read more of Massive Orvonton.

Animating the Human Mind with Cosmic Software

The Circle of Eternity

God inhabits and rules the circle of eternity. His eternal nature is a never-beginning and never-ending circle. The Father exercises ever-expanding consciousness and ceaseless self-realization within this never-ending circle of eternity, … He upholds the worlds in space and swings the universes around the endless circle of the eternal circuit. [Paper 3:2.2, page 46:6] Reality is without … read more of The Circle of Eternity.
