univitatia is used numerous times in this Paper. (37:9.8) Each of the one hundred constellation headquarters clusters of architectural spheres enjoys the continuous ministry of a residential order of beings known as the univitatia. See also (19:6.5), (30:1.46), (30:2.19), (37:9.3,8,12), (39:3.7), (55:9.2), (55:10).


p1Urantia etymology by Chris Halvorson: “specific: Urantia = (y)our heavenly place (i.e., in the cosmos)” “-tia = noun-forming suffix < -t- of L. past participle stem + -ia (cf., -tion and -ion)” “U.B.: “-tia” is indicative of impersonal, while “-ia” is more personal”

Norlatiadek etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the northern (nor) law (la) place (-tia) with Melchize(dek) identification, referring to the legislative activities at the constellation level and the presence of the special Melchizedek schools in this constellation, and implying that this constellation is in the northern regions of the local universe of Nebadon.”

Nebadon etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the first (a) nebular (neb-) upland (don) (The local universe level is the local upland relative to the lowlands where mortals begin their ascension careers in the Milky Way spiral nebula.).” “don < O.E., dun = n., down = upland”

Uversa etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the hub of the superuniverse that is the seventh expression of triune pattern (“U” is the 21st letter of the alphabet, and 21 equals 7 times 3. Hence, the headquarters worlds of the other superuniverses are Cversa, Fversa, Iversa, Lversa, Oversa, and Rversa. The “U” notation is also used in “Umajor the fifth” and “Uminor the third”.)” “versa = L., focus, hub (see endnote entitled “Versa”)”
masculine: metrical sequence of words (He wrote a verse.); also, versus (plaintiff versus defendant); feminine: poetical character (She wrote in verse.); also, vice versa (vice = in the place of another + versa = focus, hub)
“Versa is the nondirectional aspect of “a turning”, that is, the hub; while versus is the directional aspect, the rotation.”

p2Edentia etymology:  The specific, original and/or archetypal (E) edenic (eden) place (-tia).
By Chris Halvorson: “the (eden)ic place (-tia)”

p4: Morontia etymology: In general (m) material substance (mor) is like (on) this thing (-tia).
By Chris Halvorson: “that which is (-tia) akin to (on) matter (mor)”
Note also: mor–Danish origin 1930’s, refering to humus formed under acidic conditions.

Section 1: The Constellation Headquarters

p2water See Marjorie Ray’s presentation on water at the 2016 Scientific Symposium held at Urantia Foundation. Watch a video showing the peculiar relationship that your editor has to ice spikes or Halbertcicles, as I like to call them. Here’s one I call “The Spherical Cube”:

p5Melchizedek etymology by Chris Halvorson: “Heb., the king (malki) of righteousness (tsedheq) = U.B., the primary righteous expression (of a local universe descending Son)”

p6: Original printing reads, “established almost four thousand years ago, immediately after.” SRT reads, “established almost forty thousand years ago, immediately after.” Explanation, “This correction is primarily based on a reference at 119:7.2: “The public announcement that Michael had selected Urantia as the theater for his final bestowal was made shortly after we learned about the default of Adam and Eve. And thus, for more than thirty-five thousand years, your world occupied a very conspicuous place in the councils of the entire universe.” The default occurred about 37,750 years ago (see 74:0.1; 75:0.1), so almost forty thousand and more than thirty-five thousand would seem to be equally reasonable descriptions, but almost four thousand is not correct. It appears that this problem is identical in origin to that of 41:4.4: the number in question was written as a numeral in the manuscript (40,000 not forty thousand), and the error was caused by the loss of a zero before the number was formatted into words for printing, leading to four rather than forty being typeset in the first edition.”

p10metric conversions: “. . . circular crystal about 160 km in circumference and about 48 km in depth.”


Section 2: The Constellation Government


Section 3: The Most Highs of Norlatiadek

p1Vorondadek etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the very (vor-) father (da) – like (on) expression (-dek), paralleling the designation “Constellation Father”.” “-dek < Heb., -dheq = noun-forming suffix (cf., -ness)”

p3the Most Highs: In the present Hebrew Massoretic text of Psalms 46:5(4 in Eng.), as well as all the Ancient Versions thereof which I have examined (Greek LXX, Latin Vulgate, Old Armenian, Syriac Peshitta, Aramaic Targum and Old Church Slavonic) “the Most High” appears in the singular, not in the plural.

p4Daniel’s understanding of the Most Highs could be because he was a destiny reservist. 114:7.10–(The cosmic reserve corps of universe-conscious citizens on Urantia now numbers over one thousand mortals whose insight of cosmic citizenship far transcends the sphere of their terrestrial abode, but I am forbidden to reveal the real nature of the function of this unique group of living human beings.)

Daniel 4:17“‘The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people.’

Daniel 4:25: You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox and be drenched with the dew of heaven. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes.

Daniel 4:32: You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes.

Daniel 4:34: At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation.

Daniel 7:18: But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever–yes, for ever and ever.’

Daniel 7:22until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.


Section 4: Mount Assembly — The Faithful of Days

p3Havona etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the “new heaven” (Rev:21.1).” “-a = L. noun suffix (first declension, nominative) = U.B., general noun suffix, used to indicate the additional specific meanings of the coined name”

p7: Jerusem etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the “new Jerusalem” (Rev:21.2).


Section 5: The Edentia Fathers Since the Lucifer Rebellion

p17Caligastia etymology: The one whose (capital “C,” specific) darkness (calig-) entirely (as) turns him into a non-person (-tia, normally used for impersonal names, instead of –ia, which would normally be used for a personal name). From Latin caliginosus “misty,” from caliginem (nom. caligo) “mistiness, darkness, fog, gloom.”Caligula was a Roman Emperor who succeeded Tiberius and whose uncontrolled passions resulted in manifest insanity; noted for his cruelty and tyranny; was assassinated.
By Chris Halvorson: “the one who is (-tia) entirely (as) darkenss (calig-) and no longer personal.”


Section 6: The Gardens of God


Section 7: The Univitatia

p4Orvonton etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the out-dwelling town (The superuniverse domain is the dwelling place for ascending mortals that is outside of the local universe domain, and the seventh Paradise satellite of the Infinite Spirit is the hometown for “the reunions of the struggles and triumphs of the ascendant career” [17:1.9].).” “ton < O.E., tun = town” “or- = O.E., out” “von < M.E., wone = dwelling, dwelling place, domain”


p4abandonters (37:9.12) “As Urantia has its midwayers, Jerusem, your system capital, has the Material Sons and Daughters; Edentia, your constellation headquarters, has the univitatia, while the citizens of Salvington are twofold, the created susatia and the evolved Spirit-fused mortals. The administrative worlds of the minor and major sectors of the superuniverses do not have permanent citizens. But the Uversa headquarters spheres are continuously fostered by an amazing group of beings known as the abandonters, the creation of the unrevealed agents of the Ancients of Days and the seven Reflective Spirits resident on the capital of Orvonton.” See also: (30:1.44), (30:2.122), (40:10.4), (56:6.6).

Section 8: The Edentia Training Worlds

p2While you are rekeyed each time…: The only other occurrence of re-keyed is in hyphenated form 48:2.21 in the text. Words formed with the “re-” prefix, fall under the same general Chicago Manual of Style rule, but this instance is covered by an exception: “a) When the first vowel of the added word would…suggest mispronunciation, the hyphen is retained.” In this case, the un-hyphenated form appears to indicate that the first syllable is pronounced with a short e, causing the reader to stumble. Insertion of the hyphen resolves the problem.


Section 9: Citizenship on Edentia

p6: Malavatia etymology: the one who (M) acts as a messenger in Urantia’s Judeo-Christian revelatory lineage (Mala) and who is a particularly poetic (vat) sooth-sayer (ia).
Mala=Malachi: masc. proper name, O.T. name of the last in order of the Twelve Prophets, from Heb. Mal’akhi, lit. “my messenger,” from mal’akh “messenger,” from Semitic base l-‘-k (cf. Arabic la’aka “he sent”).
vat= Vates: 1620s, “poet or bard,” specifically “Celtic divinely inspired poet” (1728), from L. vates “sooth-sayer, prophet, seer,” cognate with O.Ir. faith “poet,” Welsh gwawd “poem,” O.E. wod “mad, frenzied” (see wood (adj.)). Hence vaticination “oracular prediction” (c.1600).
sooth= adj. meaning true or real and as a noun meaning truth or reality.
