p3: 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.”

Section 7: History of the Rebellion
p1: Panoptia etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the all (pan-) – seeing (op-) place (-tia) (Literally, the Panoptians are “those who see the big picture”. They saw beyond the sophistries of the Lucifer rebellion.”
Ellanora etymology: “Nora” is short for Honora, an Anglo-Norman name from the Latin for “honor.” It’s also short for Eleanora, a Greek name meaning “light.” “Elle” means she in French.
p5: 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.
p7: In symbol John saw this when he wrote: Note that the quotation from Revelation 12:4 is not exact. The Greek (and almost all other) sources say “cast them into the earth” and not “cast them down in darkness”. However, it is worth mentioning that some ancient Armenian MSS omit the phrase “into the earth” and instead say “from heaven”.
p8: Original printing reads, “Of the 681,227 Material Sons lost in Satania.” SRT reads, “Of the 681,217 Material Sons lost in Satania.” Explanation, “The change from 681,227 to 681,217 was made because of the original’s conflict with following passage: “Since the inception of the system of Satania, thirteen Planetary Adams have been lost in rebellion and default and 681,204 in the subordinate positions of trust.” (51:1.5) Thus, one of the numbers is in error, but whether the 681,227 should be reduced by ten or the 681,204 should be increased by ten cannot be determined from the text. However, the typing error required to convert a manuscript containing 681,217 to 681,227 is much easier to commit than the error required to change 681,214 to 681,204–the former requiring only that the typist should mistakenly strike a key immediately adjacent to the correct one (2 rather than 1); while the mistake required to type 681,204 when 681,214 is intended, involves striking a key with the other hand at the opposite side of the keyboard (1 intended, 0 struck). The relative locations of the numerals in the standard typesetting case also favored the 2 /1 error over the 0 /1 mistake.”
Section 8: The Son of Man on Urantia
p6: Daligastia etymology: the one who follows the one (“D” after “C”) whose darkness entirely turns him into a non-person.
By Chris Halvorson: “the one who is next in standing after, and who stands with, Caligastia (since “D” immediately follows “C” in the alphabet); also as a parallel to “Caligastia”, “the one who consorts with Caligastia” (dali- < dally = to converse = obs., to consort); as a futher illusion, “the one who is entirely deception” (dali- < dally = to trifle < O.Fr., trufle = diminutive of truffe = deception)”
Section 9: Present Status of the Rebellion
p7: With the help of a few other Urantia Book readers, your editor put together some quotes on the “signs of the times” and their possible relationship to the two eclipses we have crisscrossing the US over the next seven years on Aug. 21st, 2017 (Jesus birthday) and April 8, 2024 (the day between crucifixion and resurrection).
The research above have also been considered in connection to a document that has become known as the “Unity Treatise.”
