The Urantia Book
The Genesis of War: War is the natural state and heritage of evolving man; peace is the social yardstick measuring civilization’s advancement. Before the partial socialization of the advancing races, man was exceedingly individualistic, extremely suspicious and unbelievably quarrelsome. War is an animalistic reaction to misunderstandings and irritations; peace attends upon the civilized solution of all such problems and difficulties. Among the early causes of war were 1. Hunger, which led to food raids. 2. Woman scarcity-an attempt to relieve a shortage of domestic help. 3. Vanity-superior groups would dominate inferior groups. 4. Slaves. 5. Revenge if a tribe believed another tribe caused the death of one of their own. 6. Recreation-men just like fighting. 7. Religion-the worst cause of all.
In later times duels were substituted for wars or, as in David and Goliath, one fighter was chosen from each tribe. Progression was represented by the practice of declaring war. This was followed by the gradual development of the rules of civilized warfare. (Terrorists wage war in an asymmetrical manner, which is difficult for traditional armies, or was at one time. Next came the custom to stop fighting on Holy Days, which even the Jihad types do. The constant necessity for national defense benefits society with a long list of useful innovations. Dance, for example, was an early form of military drill. It’s social values included the following: 1. It imposed discipline and imposed cooperation. 2. Put a premium on fortitude and courage. 3. Fostered and solidified nationalism. 4. Destroyed weak and unfit people. 5. Dissolved the illusion of primitive and selectively stratified society. In our own time, DARPA, the research unit of the Army, developed the internet for military use, and now it has become a monster that no one can control.
Government: The first real governmental body was the council of the elders. This was composed of old men or women who had distinguished themselves in some way. Wisdom and experience were appreciated even by primitive man, who shows himself to be smarter than modern man. This oligarchy of age grew into patriarchy. This council could perform the three functions of government: executive (it enforced its decrees), legislative ( establishing new modes of social usage) and judicial (interpreting the current mores). In Africa today, all these forms of primitive government are in actual existence among the various tribes.
The Urantia Book
All human institutions are the accumulated mores of the past as they have been conserved by taboos and dignified by religion. Such legacies become traditions and traditions ultimately become established institutions. Human institutions are of three general classes: 1. Institutions of self-maintenance, which grows out of the instinct for self-preservation. It includes food hunger, war and the machinery of society. 2. The institutions of self-perpetuation, which involves the social safeguards of the home and school, family life and religion. 3. The institutions of self-gratification. These three form a tangled web on Urantia.
Early in Human existance a lesson was taken from the animals, which collected food for the winter. But competition-gravity pushes man down toward the beast level; poverty is his natural and tyrannical state. Wealth is not a natural gift; it results from labor, knowledge and organization. Adam was a gardener; the God of the Hebrews labored–he was the creator and upholder of all things. The Hebrews were the first tribe to put a supreme premium on industry; they were the first people to decree that “he who does not work shall not eat.” The first human foresight was directed toward the preservation of fire, water and food. Specialization in labor was first according to sex; the woman took care of the babies and home and the man went out hunting for food. The next division of labor was consequent on age and disease; the ill and old did sedentary work of making tools and weapons. The next division of labor was based on religion. The medicine men were the first humans to be exempt from physical labor. Smiths enjoyed a special status, but later they became the first men to open roadhouses outside villages. The next division is between master and slave, and there were divisions among the various craftsmen and women.
On an evolutionary world, antagonisms are natural; peace is secured only by some sort of social regulative system. Social regulation is inseparable from social organization; association implies some controlling authority. Government compels the coordination of the antagonisms of the tribes, clans, families and individuals. Government is an unconscious development; it evolves by trial and error. It does have survival value, therefore, it becomes traditional. Anarchy augmented misery; therefore, government, comparative law and order, slowly emerged. The coercive demands of the struggle for existence literally drove the human race along the progressive road to civilization.
Civilization is a racial acquirement;it is not biologically inherent; thus the children of each succeeding generation must be taught anew about the world he lives in. Dalmatia for 300,000 years taught the tribes cooperation and thus the social order prevailed among these tribes. The blue man profited most by these early social teachings, the red man to some extent, and the black man least of all. In more recent times the yellow race and the white race have presented the most advanced social development on Urantia. Primitive man was not a social or brotherly being. But the early races learned by sad experience that in union there is strength. Association early on became the price of survival. It has become man’s insurance against violent death, while the premiums are paid by submission to society’s numerous laws and regulations. Primitive human beings early learned that groups are vastly greater and stronger than the mere sum of their individual units. And so society was born, not of mere association of numbers, but rather as the organization of intelligent cooperators. And it is only because of the enhancement of survival value in association that Man’s many blunders thus far have failed to stop or destroy human civilization.
Civilized society is the result of man’s early efforts to overcome his dislike of isolation. Thus does the whole social body push on slowly toward the goal of destiny–extinction or survival–depending on whether that goal is self-maintenance or self-gratification. Self-maintenance originates society; while excessive self-gratification destroys civilization. Society is concerned with self-perpetuation, self-maintenance, and self-gratification, but human self-realization is worthy of becoming the immediate goal of many cultural groups. Almost everything of lasting value in civilization has its roots in the family. The family was the first successful peace group, the man and woman learning how to adjust their antagonisms and teaching peace to their children. The function of marriage in evolution is the insurance of race survival, not merely the realization of personal happiness. Self-maintenance and self-perpetuation are the real objects of the home. Self-maintenance builds society; unbridled self-gratification unfailingly destroys civilzation. I think we can put Russian President Putin in this category. Even if Ukraine wins the war, he has destroyed so many cities it will take years to rebuild.
THE SOCIALIZING INFLUENCE OF GHOST FEAR. Primitive desires produced the original society, but ghost fear held it together and imparted an extrahuman aspect to its existance. Common fear was plentiful, but ghost fear was a sublime form of terror. Probably the greatest single factor in the evolution of society was the ghost dream. Most dreams were disturbing to primitive man, but the ghost dream actually terrorized early humans, driving these superstitious people together for mutual protection against the vague and unseen imaginary dangers of the spirit world. The ghost dream was one of the earliest appearing differences between animal and human types of mind. The dread of the departed spirits of the dead brought to light a new and amazing form of fear, an appalling and powerful terror, which contributed to the transition from loosely organized social orders into the more disciplined and controlled primitive groups of ancient times. This ghost fear still persists in the 21st Century. Also, this ghost fear prepared humans for the fear of the Lord. Many people still see the Father as a punishing God instead of the loving God he really is. The reason for this is because they take their ideas from the Old Testament. Yahweh was a punishing, malevolent, genocidal, jealous and unforgiving god, who probably was one of the Anunnaki. There are all kinds of reasons for this view. My money is on Enlil, the Commander of the Air and Space. With fear of the Lord among Jews and Christians, there came a longing for the Lord, a reaching for the Lord, a hunger so keen that some went into monasteries to contemplate the Lord to the exclusion of everything else. I was talking to Jesus for a few weeks and he was talking back, but suddenly I realized that I was probably deluded. But it was spooky, because what he said sometimes was something I hadn’t thought of.
Confusion on Urantia
I used this title because there is a specific reason our world is so screwed up, with its wars, bombings, racism, school shootings, pervasive mental problems and other diseases, and the breakdown of American society and culture. The problems are too numerous to be mentioned here. The cause of our massive and pervasive dysfunction is the fact that our Planet Prince, instead of taking care of the planet and its people, chose to join Lucifer in his rebellion. His assistant, Daligastia did likewise. Social evolution and spiritual development had little chance to gain a foothold on Urantia.
Satan went to Caligasia on a routine inspection tour and informed him of Lucifer’s proposed “Declaration of Liberty,” and the Planet Prince decided to betray the people of Urantia and join Satan and Lucifer. His restlessness was immediately satisfied. A Planet Prince, whose work is deemed most sacred in the universe, assumes responsibility for the welfare and guidance of the evolving mortals on a newly inhabited world. Abandoning the people of Urantia was the lowest form of evil.
There are many ways of defining ‘sin,’but from the universe philosophical viewpoint sin is the attitude of a personality who is knowingly resisting cosmic reality. Sin is a purposeful resistance to divine reality–a conscious choosing to oppose spiritual progress–while iniquity consists in an open and persistent defiance of recognized reality and signifies such a degree of personality disintegration as to border on cosmic insanity.
Caligastia began by gathering his staff and proclaimed himself absolute sovereign, and telling all administrators to abdicate and putting their authority in the hands of Daligastia. Of course the staff appealed to Lucifer, but he told them to obey the Planet Prince. Daligastia formally proclaimed Caligastia “God of Urantia and supreme over all.” Many superhuman groups and seraphim chanced to be on Urantia at this time and were stuck there and forced to choose between sin and righteousness–between the ways of Lucifer and the will of the unseen Father. This struggle continued for seven years; until all the personalities on Urantia made their choice.
There is anothe reason that Urantia is not like other planets and is dyfunctional. Early tribes on other planets get rid of the misfits, the weak, the diseased, the handicapped, and thus do not have the problems that we have. The Planet Prince probably has this job on his agenda. Doing this early among the tribes is the best way to do it. It is impossible after the growth of civilization. In the section about the life and teachings of Jesus, Jesus walks by a man sitting on the ground and someone asked why he didn’t greet him and Jesus iindicated that he was unfit in some way, maybe low IQ, so Jesus wouldn’t speak to him. It seems that Jesus endorses this practice of weeding out the unfit.
The Planetary Prince
The advent of a Lanonandek Son on an average world means that human will, the ability to choose the path of eternal survival, has developed in the mind of primitive humanity. But on Urantia the Planetary Prince arrived almost half a million years after the appearance of human will. About 500,000 years ago Caligastia, the Planetary Prince arrived on Urantia. There were about one-half billion primitive human beings on earth at the time of his arrival. He established his headquarters in Mesopotamia. ( This is the same place the Anunnaki settled and the same time they touched down, yet there is no mention of them in the Urantia book. There are several theories as to the origins of Homo sapien sapien, but one thing they did not do is evolve from primitive hominids such as Homo erectus or Cro-magnon. I like Sitchin’s idea that the Anunnaki wed their own genes to the genes of Homo-erectus to create a slave race for the mines and other hard work. It wasn’t until much later that the “gods” uplifted humanity and taught us how to build the civilization of Sumer. But all of that is suppressed in the Urantia book.
Caligastia had a reputation of loyalty and devotion to the welfare to the universe of his origin, but he also had a certain restlessness coupled with a tendency to disagree with his superiors in minor matters. Melchizedek, the author of this paper 66 was on Jerusem when Caligastia went to Urantia, and he did not then realize that Caligastia was falling in love with himself; he did not understand the subtleties of personality pride.
The Planetary Prince brought with him all sorts of assistants and administrative helpers. His associate-assistant was Daligastia, also a secondary Lanonandek Son. There were a host of celestial and angelic persons assigned to promote the welfare of the human races. The most interesting of these were the Caligastia 100. These were not invisible to human like the other staff members were. They had actual physical bodies. I think this is because they would be interfacing with humans from the tribes and teaching them domestic skills. The main job at first was to turn the tribes from hunters to herders, with the hope that man would turn into a home-loving and peaceful farmer. The settlement was a beautiful city with walls 40 feet high and the temple to the unseen Father in the middle. Outside the wall all colors and classes of humans met for schooling. The teachers would teach the especially bright students and send them back to their tribes to teach those children.
The 100 were material but superhuman beings. It was the custom for these teachers or assistants to create new creatures before they retired. There were 50 males and 50 females and they didn’t know what sort of creature they would give life to. The 100 had souls because they had progressed through the morontia worlds and gained citizenship on Jerusem. During the mortal life in the flesh the soul is embryonic. It is born (resurrected) in the morontia life and grows through the successive morontia worlds. Anyway, the second and seventh of the 100 were exploring the various non-sexual ways of producing offspring and accidentally produced a primary midway creature. Soon the other 98 got into the act and they didn’t stop until they had produced 50,000 primary midwayers. These midwayers came with all the skills they needed to be helpful in any situation. And they could affect physical reality if necessary.
History of Urantia
600,000,000 years ago the commission of Life Carriers sent out from Jerusem arrived on Urantia and began the study of physical conditions preparatory to launching life on world 606 of the Satania system. The Satania Life Carriers had projected a sodium chloride pattern of life; therefore no steps could be taken toward planting it until the ocean water had become suffiently salty. The Urantia type of protoplasm can function only in a suitable salt solution. This oceanlike salty solution circulates in our bodies, bathing each individual cell with a chemical liquid in all essentials comparable to the salt water which stimulated thefirst protoplasmic reactions of the first living cells to function on the planet.
Urantia land masses spread out, allowing the oceans to have more shorelines. This enabled ocean plant life to find its way onto land. The large amount of carbon in the atmosphere allowed the plants to flourish and produce varieties of luxuriant growth. However, Man could never survive in such an atmosphere. The planet’s atmosphere filters through to the earth about one two-billionth of the son’s total light emanation. If we paid for this light at the rate of 2 cents a kilowatt hour, the annual light bill would approach 800 quadrillion dollars. Vast solar energies pour in upon Urantia embracing wave lengths ranging both above and below the recognition span of human vision. In other words there are things going on just outside the corners of our eyes.
Solar radiation at the extreme ultraviolet end of the spectrum are short wave lengths,but we are protected by a layer of ozone ten miles thick. Unfortunately, our ozone layer is getting thin due to pollution and other factors. The sun pours down a flood of deadly rays, but the earth has many ways of protecting herself. The lower 5 or 6 miles of the earth’s atmosphere is the troposphere. This is the region of wind, air currents and weather. Above this region is the inner ionosphere and next above is the stratosphere. Eight mile above the earth’s surface the temperature is 70 degrees below 0. At the height of 45 miles the temperature begins to rise, until it reaches 1200 degrees F. This heat is what causes the ionization of the oxygen, The power of sunspots to alter light frequencies shows that these solar storm centers function as enormous magnets. Such magnetic fields are able to hurl charged particles from the sunspot craters out through space to the earth’s outer atmosphere, where their ionizing influence produces such spectacular auroral displays.
The History of Urantia
1, 000, 000, 000 years ago is the date of the actual beginning of Urantia history. The planet had attained approximately its present size. And about this time it was placed on the physical registries of Nebadon and given the name, Urantia. The real geological history of Urantia begins with the earth’s crust cooling sufficiently to cause the formation of the first ocean. By the end of this period, the ocean was worldwide, covering the world to a depth of over one mile.
9.5 million years ago Urantia presents the picture of one great continent of land and one large body of water, the Pacific Ocean. I think the land mass was called Gondwanaland, but I know I am not spelling it right. Volcanoes and earthquakes are still widespread and carbon dioxide continues to be large. About this time Urantia was assigned to the System of Satania for planetary administration and was placed on the life registry of Norlatiadek. Thus did administration recognize an insignificant planet that would become known as the “world of the cross.”
900, 000, 000 years ago witnessed the arrival on Urantia the first Satania scouting party sent out from Jerusem to examine the planet and make a report on its adaptation for a life-experiment station. This commission consisted of twenty-four members, embracing Life Carriers, Lanonandek Sons, Melchizedeks, seraphim and other celestial orders. They reported favorably to the System Sovereign that Urantia be placed on the life-experiment registry. It was accordingly registered as a decimal planet and the Life Carriers were notified that they had permission to institute new patterns of mechanical, chemical and electrical activity at the time of their subsequent arrival with life transplantation and implantation mandates. This would be the sixtieth Satania experiment designed to amplify and improve the Satania type of Nebadon life patterns.
650,000,000 years ago the continents took shape and the oceans became salty. They say the moon has been here as long as the earth, but ancient people knew a time when there was no moon. Also the moon is hollow; it rang like a bell when astronauts dropped a bomb on it. And the underground grapevine says its a spaceship. Ancient records conflict with the origin of the earth as described here, also.
The History of Urantia
5,000,000,000 years ago our sun was an isolated, but blazing sphere, which was drawing material to itself. The sun contracted and had a gradual increase in temperature which led to violent convulsions on its surface. This was the origin of Monmatia, the name of our solar system. Less than 1% of solar systems have this type of origin. 4.5 billion years ago the enormous Angona system began its approach to the region of our sun. At the center of this huge system was a black giant of space, solid, highly charged and possessing tremendous gravity pull. The gravity of this system would cause the sun to eject tongues, streams of gaseous material out into space. The material in the tongues of fire would break off and become meteors of the solar system, which immediately started to revolve around the sun. As the Angona system got closer to the sun, they both disgorged tongues of fire and matter, which met and produced a long column pointed at both ends and bulging in the center. From the odd space formation came the solar system of 12 planets.
The five inner and five outer planets soon formed in miniature from the cooling and condensing nucleuae in the less massive and tapering ends of the gigantic gravity bulge, while Saturn and Jupiter were formed from the more massive central portions. The powerful gravity pull of these planets early captured much of the material from Angona, as the retrograde motion of certain of their satellites bears witness. These two planets were so gaseous that they glowed like suns. They still are too gaseous to be inhabited (for humans). Saturn’s rings can be settled, which ETs do, but I don’t know whether they build facilities or live in a mother ship.
The planets do not revolve around the sun in the plane of their solar mother, which they would do if they were spun off by solar revolution. Rather, they travel in the plane of the Angona solar extrusion, which was at an angle to the plane of the sun’s equator. Something happened which is hard to explain. Apparently, Angona threw off 3 “tributaries” the orbits of which were retrograde or opposite to the planets, which would be very disruptive. They are just called “foreign space bodies.” The narrator says that the moon is drawing closer to the earth, which is true. It’s a little scary to me. But if it’s being driven by ETs, maybe they can put the brakes on. Hope so!
The Narrator continues: And then, in that far distant future when the moon approaches to within 11,000 miles of the earth, the gravity action of the latter will cause the moon to disrupt, and this tidal-gravity explosion will shatter the moon into small particles, which will assemble about the world as rings of matter resembling those of Saturn or may be drawn into the earth as meteors.” 3 billion years ago our solar system was placed on the physical registry of Nebadon and given its name, Monmatia.
The History of Urantia
The Andronover nebula gradually assumed the form of a spiral. These secondary space nebulae are usually observed as spiral phenomena. Gravity control at the center weakened and gas escaped, allowing two gigantic and distinct arms to take origin on opposite sides of the mother mass. The increasing rate of whirling of the mother mass caused sons to be thrown off hither and yon. The energy wheel grew and grew until it gained its maximum of expansion, and then when contraction set in, the critical centrifugal stage was reached and the great breakup began.
500,000,000,000 years ago young suns became spherical and became the stars of space. The vast majority of Orvonton suns have had a similar birth. 400,000,000,000 years ago the mother wheel contracted and recaptured the nearby and smaller suns. This was the terminal phase of nebular condensation, which always precedes the final segregation of these immense aggregations of energy and matter.
A million years subsequent to this epoch Michael of Nebadon, a Creator Son of Paradise, selected this disintegrating nebula as the site in which to build his universe. Almost immediately, the architectural worlds of Salvinton and the 100 constellation headquarters groups of planets were begun. It took almost 1,000.000 years to complete these clusters of specially created worlds. The local system headquarters planets took from that time until about five billion years ago.
300,000,000,000 years ago the Andronover solar circuits were well established, and the nebular system was going through a period of relative stability. The staff of Michael arrived on Salvington and the Uversa government of Orvonton extended physical recognition to the local universe of Nebadon. There are many more stages: the nebula created 876,926 sun systems; 6,000,000,000 years ago our sun was born; it’s number is 1,013,572.
The Origin of Urantia
Urantia’s origin is in the sun and the sun is one of the many offspring of the Andronover nebula, which was organized as a component part of the superuniverse of Orvonton, and later to be included in the universe of Nebadon. This nebula was created and organized by the Primary Master Force Organizers of Paradise, who were in full control of the space energies of the nebula.
987,000,000,000 years ago associate force organizer and then acting inspector number 811,307 of the Orvonton series, traveling out from Uversa, reported to the Ancients of Days that space conditions were favorable for the initiation of the materialization phenomena in a certain section of the easterly sector of Orvonton.
900,000,000,000 years ago, the Uversa archives record, there was a permit issued by the Uversa Council of Equilibrium to the superuniverse government authorizing the dispatch of a force organizer and staff to the region previously designated by inspector number 811,307.
875,000,000,000 years ago the enormous Andronover nebula number 876,926 was duly initiated. Only the presence of the force organizer and the liaison staff was required to inaugurate the energy whirl which eventually grew into this vast cyclone of space. The living force organizers simply withdraw at right angles to the plane of the revolutionary disc, and the inherent qualities of energy insure the progressive and orderly evolution of such a system. 800,000,000,000 years ago the Andronover nebula was well established as one of the magnificent primary nebulae of Orvonton. At 700 Billion years ago the nebula was becoming enormous; additional physical controllers were dispatched to nine surrounding physical creations to support the power centers of this new material system. Whirling faster and faster the nebula started to condense and contract.
600,000,000,000 years ago the height of the energy mobilization period was attained; the nebula had acquired its maximum of mass. It was a gigantic circular gas cloud shaped like a flattened spheroid. Gravity and other influences were about to begin their work of converting space gasas into organized matter.
