What is out there?
If you are in to astronomy, you know that this science is very exciting right now. With the advent of tech our ability to see, and discover is enormously advanced right now.
New planets are being discovered weekly, suns and asetroids are being measured, and most recently our scientisists were able to accomplish an exciting feat, sending a space probe to fly along side comet 67P, known as Churemov and Gerasimenko, back in 2004.
But even though we are seeing the universe better than ever, do we know what we are looking at? And in Paper 15 of the Urantia Book, we ask ourselves if the revelation is consistent with our new discoveries.
Most recently we have discovered that the universe may be elliptical, a loop, and that space is moving along an elliptical path. So indicates a October 2019 study by the University of Manchester, published in Nature Astronomy.
Here,recently published from Vice.com, which references an October 2019 study published in the Astrophysical Journal, with the headlines: Mysterious Coherence in Several-megaparsec Scales between Galaxy Rotation and Neighbor Motion
Becky Fierra writes:
The Milky Way, the galaxy we live in, is one of hundreds of billions of galaxies strewn across the universe. Their variety is stunning: spirals, ring galaxies shaped like star-studded loops, and ancient galaxies that outshine virtually everything else in the universe.
But despite their differences, and the mind-boggling distances between them, scientists have noticed that some galaxies move together in odd and often unexplained patterns, as if they are connected by a vast unseen force.
Galaxies within a few million light years of each other can gravitationally affect each other in predictable ways, but scientists have observed mysterious patterns between distant galaxies that transcend those local interactions.”
“These discoveries hint at the enigmatic influence of so-called “large-scale structures” which, as the name suggests, are the biggest known objects in the universe.
These dim structures are made of hydrogen gas and dark matter and take the form of filaments, sheets, and knots that link galaxies in a vast network called the cosmic web. We know these structures have major implications for the evolution and movements of galaxies, but we’ve barely scratched the surface of the root dynamics driving them.
“Scientists are eager to acquire these new details because some of these phenomena challenge the most fundamental ideas about the universe.
So let us go through a summary of Paper 15 as it describes our universe…
remembering that these statements were made in 1934…as the revelators explain to us what makes up physical creation
“…we know that the universes are engaged in an orderly, well-understood, and perfectly controlled processional, swinging in majestic grandeur around the First Great Source and Center and his residential universe.”
“The local universe to which your system belongs is pursuing a definite and well-understood counterclockwise course around the vast swing that encircles the central universe.”
“Urantia is situated in a local universe and a superuniverse not fully organized, and your local universe is in immediate proximity to numerous partially completed physical creations.”
“Today, the solar system to which Urantia belongs is a few billion years past the swing around the southern curvature so that you are just now advancing beyond the southeastern bend and are moving swiftly through the long and comparatively straightaway northern path.”
“Practically all of the starry realms visible to the naked eye on Urantia belong to the seventh section of the grand universe, the superuniverse of Orvonton. The vast Milky Way starry system represents the central nucleus of Orvonton.”
“The superuniverse of Orvonton is illuminated and warmed by more than ten trillion blazing suns. These suns are the stars of your observable astronomic system. More than two trillion are too distant and too small ever to be seen from Urantia. But in the master universe there are as many suns as there are glasses of water in the oceans of your world.”
“Uversa is the spiritual and administrative headquarters for approximately one trillion inhabited or inhabitable worlds. The glory, grandeur, and perfection of the Orvonton capital surpass any of the wonders of the time-space creations.”
This entire narrative presents only a fleeting glimpse of the immense creation of which your world and local system are a part.
15:14.5 (182.4) Your world is called Urantia, and it is number 606 in the planetary group, or system, of Satania. This system has at present 619 inhabited worlds, and more than two hundred additional planets are evolving favorably toward becoming inhabited worlds at some future time.
15:14.6(182.5) Satania has a headquarters world called Jerusem, and it is system number twenty-four in the constellation of Norlatiadek. Your constellation, Norlatiadek, consists of one hundred local systems and has a headquarters world called Edentia. Norlatiadek is number seventy in the universe of Nebadon. The local universe of Nebadon consists of one hundred constellations and has a capital known as Salvington. The universe of Nebadon is number eighty-four in the minor sector of Ensa.
15:14.7 (182.6) The minor sector of Ensa consists of one hundred local universes and has a capital called Uminor the third. This minor sector is number three in the major sector of Splandon. Splandon consists of one hundred minor sectors and has a headquarters world called Umajor the fifth. It is the fifth major sector of the superuniverse of Orvonton, the seventh segment of the grand universe. Thus you can locate your planet in the scheme of the organization and administration of the universe of universes.
15:14.8 (182.7) The grand universe number of your world, Urantia, is 5 (trillion),342 (billion),482 (million),337 (thousand),666. That is the registry number on Uversa and on Paradise, your number in the catalogue of the inhabited worlds. I know the physical-sphere registry number, but it is of such an extraordinary size that it is of little practical significance to the mortal mind.
15:14.9(183.1) Your planet is a member of an enormous cosmos; you belong to a well-nigh infinite family of worlds, but your sphere is just as precisely administered and just as lovingly fostered as if it were the only inhabited world in all ex
Pretty remarkable prose on the description of how our unievsre moves through an elliptical space, a never ending contiuum which circles Havone and Paradise, the dwelling place of God.
I would say that if you want to hear a fascinating interview with Astronomer George Parks from our earlier podcast, check out Epsiode 9 entitled Our Universe.
Parks expounds on other great scientific discoveries as well.
