p3Urantia 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”

Section 1: Urantian Trinity Concepts

p1Caligastia 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.”

p2Melchizedek etymology by Chris Halvorson: “Heb., the king (malki) of righteousness (tsedheq) = U.B., the primary righteous expression (of a local universe descending Son)”

p12Nebadon 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”

p1polytheism(istic) appears in eleven paragraphs: (5:4.2,9), (91:3.3), (92:6.17), (94:1.3), (95:2.2), (95:5.4), (96:1.2), (97:3.6), (104:1.9), (104:2.1).

p2trinitarianism appears three times: (94:1.3), (104:1.9), (104:2.2).

deanthropomorphized is used twice.
(97:0.1) THE spiritual leaders of the Hebrews did what no others before them had ever succeeded in doing—they deanthropomorphized their God concept without converting it into an abstraction of Deity comprehensible only to philosophers. Even common people were able to regard the matured concept of Yahweh as a Father, if not of the individual, at least of the race.

p22space 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.

p4515: The total number of triunities is the number of combinations of 2 elements out of 6, given by the binomial coefficient: C↑2↓6 = 6!⁄2!4! = 15.


See seven triunities 10:5.7.

p22space potency appears in eighteen paragraphs: (4:1.9), (11:2.9), (11:5.4), (11:7.4), (11:8.5,8), (15:4.2), (42:2.3,5,6,7,10,16), (42:10.1), (56:9.7), (104:4.22), (105:7.9), (115:2.3).
