Revealed Science in the Urantia Book

Post by Starwalker » Fri Jul 01, 2022 3:34 am

I found these videos by Nigel Nunn very insightful. They explore the answers to the big questions, and compare the revealed cosmology of the Urantia Book to our current scientific understanding. I have previously contemplated some of these topics, such as how our Milky Way galaxy fits into the superuniverse. Some people in the Urantia Book community believe that the Milky Way is Orvonton, but Nigel suggests that it is one of the major sectors. This is more in line with my thoughts, though Nigel is far ahead of me in this area. This series of videos is a great resource for anyone trying to gain a greater understanding of the Urantia Book. They certainly helped me to connect a few dots, so I just thought I would share them. :idea:

“In the not-distant future, new telescopes will reveal to the wondering gaze of Urantian astronomers no less than 375 million new galaxies in the remote stretches of outer space.” (UB, 12:2.3)

With the first image from the Webb near-infrared telescope being presented today, I thought it would be a good idea to add to this post. The image can be viewed here: https://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/godd ... iverse-yet The published image shows thousands of galaxies in an area of the sky which would be covered by a grain of sand held at arms length. Talk about the Kingdom being like a mustard seed!

This image really helped me put the size of the universe into perspective. At first it actually made me laugh at how tiny we really are. And then the awe kicked in. Behind the larger galaxies are smaller and fainter galaxies. The size and brightness of the galaxy images are dependent upon their distance from us. Therefore, images like this could be used to show the existence of the quiescent zones between the outer space levels as revealed in the Urantia Book. That would be an interesting development.

Science aside, I zoomed in on one of the galaxies and told myself that I was going to go there someday. I suppose there’s no guarantee that I will ever make it there, but it is actually a realistic goal. Perhaps in eternity we will visit every world in every one of these galaxies. After all, there’ll be lots of time! 8)

:bana: Interesting videos by Nigel Nunn!

I sampled a few and retained slightly more than "Zilch" information,
considering this advanced explanation of particle physics. :roll:

:idea: I suspect that man will keep getting closer to the totality
of the universe but never cross the boundary where material life
meets spiritual realities ... until human advances to spirit. ;)

Wow... I hope to get to do more research here when my life settles a bit. so many exciting videos to pursue. I am beyond amazed and inspired when I look at the images coming from the new telescope. How can anyone deny the existence of an intelligence beyond our ability to understand behind the cosmos when viewing the extent and complexity of the universe as it is being revealed to us in increments.

Some day we will know so much more but how cool to think we will never ever stop learning... :bana: :bana: :bana:

Thanks Jonathon

Yes, Rod, I think a Ph.D in particle physics or astronomy sure would come in handy to understand all this. I have some basic knowledge on these subjects, so I could comprehend a little of what he presents in these videos. His explanation of the origin of ultimatons (100 of which make up one electron) helped me to glimpse the spiritual underpinnings of the material universe. In the Urantia Book we learn that “The ultimaton, the first measurable form of energy, has Paradise as its nucleus.” (UB, 41:9.1) This one line has thrown me for a loop in trying to piece all this together. How could a subelectronic particle have the center of all creation as its nucleus? Try wrapping your head around that one, it can lead to some interesting places.

I also enjoyed the exploding dark islands of space video. The theory that black holes are actually former stars which have undergone ultimatonic condensation to become a sphere of ultimatons is very fascinating. This would mean that black holes are essentially enormous electrons which absorb all light making them look like holes. I suspect you are correct in saying that we truly are not able to fully understand the universe, since it has spiritual origins and we are material beings. But we can at least get a start on it.

Sandy, there are new photos from this telescope published now. I made an error in my previous post. I called it a near-infrared telescope. It is actually a near-infrared camera installed on the space telescope that takes these awe-inspiring photos. They inspired me to research more into our own galaxy, in both conventional science and in the Urantia Book. I have been struggling to find congruency between the two. It turned out to be a bit of a rabbit hole (or should I say wormhole?). Even the most advanced among us in these areas are only scratching the surface. But it is a worthy use of our time to contemplate these matters and humankind has come a long way in this field. Let’s hope that as we understand more about our universe, we will also come closer to recognizing its Maker.

”Through the realization of truth the appreciation of beauty leads to the sense of the eternal fitness of those things which impinge upon the recognition of divine goodness in Deity relations with all beings; and thus even cosmology leads to the pursuit of divine reality values—to God-consciousness.” (UB, 56:10.8).

(about iTandem geometry design in Paradise Trinity Day topic)

:sunflower: Interesting Cartesian symbolism ...

Pi exists only as relationship to a circle;
ultimaton exists as relationship to Paradise. 8)

:sunflower: Interesting spiral growth factor ....

In 360 degrees, both sqrt(Pi) and sqrt(2) increase/decrease by 16.

"Either sqrt(2) is transcendental or Pi is not." ;)
