Section 1: Physical Co-ordination
p2: 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 2: Intellectual Unity
Section 3: Spiritual Unification
Section 4: Personality Unification
p1: Havona 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”
p2: Personality inherently reaches out to unify all constituent realities…: This passage is used in “Logical Consistency vs Personal Creativity,” a special presentation by Chris Halvorson, which was prepared on this subject at the request of conference organizer, Halbert Katzen, for the UBtheNEWS 2010 Education for Outreach conference.
p4: It is interesting to note that, prior to the development of today’s advanced medical technologies, one might have argued that, similarly, a child cannot have more than one mother and even that there is never a doubt about who the mother is. But now we can actually conceptualize motherhood in a number of ways. There are surrogate mothers and distinctions between whether all of the mother’s egg cell is used. But “it is literally impossible for any child to have more than one father,” still holds up.
Section 5: Deity Unity
Section 6: Unification of Evolutionary Deity
p6: abandonters (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), (43:7.4).
Section 7: Universal Evolutionary Repercussions
p4: suddenly From Wikipedia: Stephan Wolfram: “From 1992 to 2002, Stephen Wolfram worked on his controversial book A New Kind of Science, which presents an empirical study of very simple computational systems. Additionally, it argues that for fundamental reasons these types of systems, rather than traditional mathematics, are needed to model and understand complexity in nature. Wolfram’s conclusion is that the universe is digital in its nature, and runs on fundamental laws which can be described as simple programs. He predicts that a realization of this within the scientific communities will have a major and revolutionary influence on physics, chemistry and biology and the majority of the scientific areas in general, which is the reason for the book’s title.”
See “Is There Design in Nature,” Section 7 of Neal Kendall’s Scientific Symposium presentation at Urantia Foundation in 2016.
Section 8: The Supreme Unifier
Section 9: Universal Absolute Unity
p7: space potency: (42:2.6) “On Uversa, space potency is spoken of as ABSOLUTA.” See Nigel Nunn’s “Exploding Dark Islands” presentation, which covers the relationship between absoluta, segregata, ultimata and in the creation of ultimatons and how all of this relates to dark islands and black holes.
