While I am primarily concerned with the contact of two human species who reside outside of our local space areas, I see the attention to the Urantia
Book is fairly interesting, and I think some of the expressed ideas in this thread need to be looked at for accuracy. All inhabited planets undergo
episodes of revelation as we have - information that can not be logically arrived at but is essential for a culture to acquire to build social mores
into a complete picture of value oriented living.
Urantia Source Material Proscriptions - an explanation:
There are dozens of human sources that the revelators who wrote the text have referenced and incorporated into the revelation. In some cases they use
the sense of a the quoted text, sometimes they take whole passages out, and I have known of several distinguished authors in early twentieth century
publications whose ideas were picked up and expanded by the revelatory commission. Source materials are rarely referenced if only to keep such
materials from overwhelming the written revelation itself.
The revelators freely admit that the proscriptions (the instructions given to them by Trinity instructors as to what they may use and how they may use
it) prevented them from writing of their own superior knowledge of concepts earth writers also write about and are of use. Only if a concept is not
available on earth may they resort to supplying their own language. A good example of having to supply their own word is the concept in the after
life where we have no idea what a human is made of once they pass from the flesh. The text refers to this material as morontial energy. Some wags
liken the term as a root word from our word “moron” which it is not, as it comes the System language roots which all ascenders learn in their
career after life in the flesh.
Nonetheless, read the following paragraph which neatly states the dilemma the revelators face when attempting to describe spiritual situations and
then must use language already in use on the planet. The whole text book is under the same restrictions. One of the Midwayers who writes the
biography states it as follows:
Paper 121, Section 8, Paragraph 13:
121:8.13 The memoranda which I have collected, and from which I have prepared this narrative of the life and teachings of Jesus — aside from the
memory of the record of the Apostle Andrew — embrace thought gems and superior concepts of Jesus’ teachings assembled from more than two thousand
human beings who have lived on earth from the days of Jesus down to the time of the inditing of these revelations, more correctly restatements. The
revelatory permission has been utilized only when the human record and human concepts failed to supply an adequate thought pattern. My revelatory
commission forbade me to resort to extrahuman sources of either information or expression until such a time as I could testify that I had failed in my
efforts to find the required conceptual expression in purely human sources.
Delivery Method of the First Three Sections of the Urantia Text - an explanation:
The original material which comprises the first three sections of the Urantia text was delivered initially through the Sleeping Subject which is a
closely guarded secret of those who have already died and, by choice, no record exists who the Sleeping Subject was.
The initial Papers of the text were delivered handwritten before 1934. From 1910 to 1934, intense preparations took place in the assembling of
talented personnel who could handle the dictation and secrecy surrounding the first epochal revelation since the birth of Jesus. The Sleeping Subject
at one time was a patient of Dr. William Sadler and later collaborated with Paper protection by refusing to state to anyone what he was doing at the
doctor’s office day in and day out. The term “patient” was true to the extent that he exhibited the unusual proclivity to be able to write,
while sleeping, 500 pages of text and be completely unaware of the activity. The process was studied by Dr. Sadler who finally gave up in being able
to say exactly what he was witnessing except that it presented the world a glimpse into the secrecy of the Paradise Deities and their relationship to
The Papers were corrected and edited for length and by 1942 they were initially ready for the printing presses. It was deemed important not to
publish while the war effort was ongoing. It was published in 1955.
There is a great deal of information yet to be discovered about how and when all of this material came together, but I have provided you the basics of
timing and some circumstances surrounding the appearance of the Urantia text.
