INTRODUCTION

I. REFERENCE: (164.1) 15:0.1 - “As far as...”

COMMENT

1. God as a father deals with individuals. Practically speaking, the universes are nonexistent.

2. The Son and the Spirit deal more directly with the local universes.

3. The Trinity is concerned more with the seven superuniverses.

4. A Master Spirit is concerned with a single superuniverse.

The Ancients of Days maintain intelligent control of both physical and spiritual forces designed to facilitate intellectual advancement and spiritual growth of all will creatures.

1. THE SUPERUNIVERSE SPACE LEVEL

I. REFERENCE: (164.4) 15:1.1 - “Within the limited range...”

COMMENT

1. Urantia and its universe are not plunging into new and uncharted space.

2. The galaxies are controlled and are swinging in majestic grandeur around Paradise.

Our local universe pursues a definite space path. It is a comparatively recent creation. Its position in the Milky Way galaxy is well known.

2. ORGANIZATION OF THE SUPERUNIVERSES

I. REFERENCE: (165.6) 15:2.1 - “Only the Universal Father...”

COMMENT

Only God the Father knows the number and name of all the inhabited worlds in the grand universe.

This section presents the organization plan of the grand universe—from the local system to the superuniverse capital.

3. THE SUPERUNIVERSE OF ORVONTON

II. REFERENCE: (167.20) 15:3.4 - “Of the ten major...”

COMMENT

Of the ten major divisions of Orvonton, Urantia astronomers have identified eight.

III. REFERENCE: (168.1) 15:3.5 - “The rotational center...”

COMMENT

Our minor sector (Ensa) revolves around the center of the Sagittarius star cloud.

Description of the Milky Way. The astronomical position of Urantia. Dimensions of the Milky Way like a watch. Paradise lies beyond the area of greatest density of the Milky Way. Story of the Andronover nebula and the birth of the solar system. Nebadon and associated universes revolve around Sagittarius. Story of the seven different stellar movements. Orvonton moves counterclockwise around Paradise. Physical organization of a local universe.

4. NEBULAE—THE ANCESTORS OF UNIVERSES

Mystery of the ultimatons and the force charge of space. Universe organization. Paradise force organizers transmute space potency and power directors organize it. The mystery of energy segmentation. Paradise force organisers are nebulae originators. Suns originate in these mother wheels of space. A mother wheel may give origin to one hundred million suns. Administrative units are not related to nebulae organization. Story of spiral nebulae. Andromeda. Constitution of the Milky Way. Magellanic cloud. Stellar gas. (169.1) 15:4.1

5. THE ORIGIN OF SPACE BODIES

Origin of planets—ten different methods. One hundred ways of sun formation. (170.4) 15:5.1

6. THE SPHERES OF SPACE

The spheres of space—suns, dark islands, minor space bodies, planets. Architectural spheres. Suns that shine without heat. Solar dynamos. More than ten million blazing suns in Orvonton. Dark islands are gravity controllers. Comets. Inhabited planets. Dead suns. Three inhabitable planets in our solar system. (172.3) 15:6.1

7. THE ARCHITECTURAL SPHERES

Architectural capitals independently lighted and heated. Standard Orvonton time. Economy of headquarters worlds is material, morontial, and spiritual. Jerusem and seven cultural worlds. Edentia and 70 satellites. Salvington and 490 worlds. Uminor the third and Umajor the fifth. Uversa and 490 worlds. (174.1) 15:7.1

8. ENERGY CONTROL AND REGULATION

Energy control and regulation. Superuniverse capitals centers of energy control—power centers and physical controllers. Physical energy circuits take 968 million years to complete circuit of superuniverse. Velocity and mass are determining factors. Gravity and antigravity. Stellar collisions. Energy regulation. The Absolutes and experiential Deities. The universe does not run down. (175.4) 15:8.1

9. CIRCUITS OF THE SUPERUNIVERSES

Universal gravity circuits. The seven superuniverse circuits. The three local universe circuits. Blending circuits—settling a universe in light and life. Essentials of superuniverse membership. (176.6) 15:9.1

10. RULERS OF THE SUPERUNIVERSES

I. REFERENCE: (178.1) 15:10.1 - “The headquarters...”

COMMENT

1. The executive branch of superuniverse government is directed by one of the Seven Master Spirits.

2. The Master Spirits administer the superuniverses through their

II. REFERENCE: (178.2) 15:10.2 - “The superuniverse headquarters...”

COMMENT

The reflectivity mechanism of the grand universe operates from the capitals of the seven superuniverses.

III. REFERENCE: (178.3) 15:10.3 - “Each superuniverse is...” and “The three...”

COMMENT

The three Ancients of Days rule a superuniverse, assisted by:

1. One billion Perfectors of Wisdom.

2. Three billion Divine Counselors.

3. One billion Universal Censors.

IV. REFERENCE: (178.12) 15:10.12 - “The remaining three orders...”

COMMENT

1. The Ancients of Days are also assisted by three orders of glorified ascendant mortals:

A. Mighty Messengers.

B. Those High in Authority.

C. Those Without Name and Number.

2. These three groups are known as Trinitized Sons of Attainment.

3. They are all dual-origin mortals who became finaliters and were then embraced by the Trinity.

V. REFERENCE: (179.8) 15:10.21 - “The Reflective Image Aids...”

COMMENT

On the superuniverse capitals, the Reflective Image Aids function as representing numerous groups who are related to the superuniverse governments—such as:

1. Manifestations of the Supreme Being.

2. Unqualified Supervisors of the Supreme.

3. Qualified Vicegerents of the Ultimate.

4. Liaison reflectivators of Majeston.

5. Superpersonal spirit representatives of the Eternal Son.

11. THE DELIBERATIVE ASSEMBLY

I. REFERENCE: (179.11) 15:11.1 - “It is on such worlds...”

COMMENT

1. On Uversa the autocracy of perfection and the democracy of evolution meet face to face.

2. The superuniverse government is constituted as follows:

A. Executive branch originates in the realms of perfection.

B. The legislative branch derives from the flowering of the evolutionary universes.

II. REFERENCE: (180.1) 15:11.3 - “Never have I known...”

COMMENT

1. In superuniverse government, the executive and legislative branches never disagree.

2. All this proves that evolutionary beings can attain to heights of perfected wisdom.

3. It also demonstrates the wisdom of the Father’s plan of the Paradise ascension.

12. THE SUPREME TRIBUNALS

I. REFERENCE: (180.3) 15:12.2 - “The courts of the...”

COMMENT

1. The tribunals of the Ancients of Days are the supreme courts for all component local universes.

2. Local universe courts are well-nigh supreme except in matters involving the extinction of will creatures.

3. Mandates for the extinction of will creatures originate on, and are executed from, the headquarters of the superuniverses.

13. THE SECTOR GOVERNMENTS

This section deals with the organization and conduct of the minor and major sector governments of the seven superuniverses. (181.1) 15:13.1

14. PURPOSES OF THE SEVEN SUPERUNIVERSES

I. REFERENCE: (182.1) 15:14.2 - “Orvonton, the seventh...”

COMMENT

Orvonton is renowned for:

1. Lavish bestowal of mercy.

2. Justice tempered by mercy.

3. Power conditioned by patience.

4. Time sacrificed to secure eternal stabilizations.

Further summary of Section 14. The seven major purposes of the superuniverses. The seventh superuniverse is something like a “meaning-of-the-whole.” Much going on in Orvonton remains unrevealed. Urantia is No. 606 in Satania which now has 619 inhabited worlds. Relation of system to other superuniverse divisions.
