The Urantia Book

This is how evolution starts: The vital spark–the mystery of life–is bestowed through the Life Carriers, not by them. They do indeed supervise such tranactions, they formulate the life plasm itself, but it is the Universe Mother Spirit who supplies the essential factor of the living plasm. From the Creative Daughter of the Infinite Spirit comes that energy spark which enlivens the body and presages the mind. The Life Carriers are not allowed to interfere with the beings they have produced, especially will creatures. They stay a long time on a planet to make sure that life is progressing in the correct way, but they don’t interfere.

It is the presence of the seven adjutant mind-spirits on the primitive worlds that conditions the course of organic evolution; that explains why evolution is purposeful and not accidental. These adjutants represent that function of the mind ministry of the Infinite Spirit which is extended to the lower orders of intelligent life through the operations of a local universe Mother Spirit. The adjutants are the children of the Universe Mother Spirit and constitute her personal ministry to the material minds of the realms. Wherever and whenever such mind is manifest , these spirits are variously functioning.

The seven adjutant mind-spirits are as follows: 1. the spirit of intuition (quick reflexes, only one to make contact with lowest mind level) 2. the spirit of understanding (automatic association of ideas, rapid judgment, prompt decision) 3. The spirit of courage (moral stamina, spiritual bravery) 4. the spirit of knowledge 5. the spirit of counsel (species co-operation) 6. the spirit of worship (this is what separates humans from animals, or so we think) 7. the spirit of wisdom (the goal of mental and moral existence).

When the Life Carriers have designed the patterns of life, after they have organized the energy systems, there must occur an additional phenomenon; the”breath of life” must be imparted to these lifeless forms. The Sons of God can construct the forms of life, but it is the Spirit of God who really contributes the vital spark. But they said the Mother Spirit contributes the vital spark, and I like to think it’s her.
