p1: Caligastia 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.”
Urantia 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”
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)”
Melchizedek etymology by Chris Halvorson: “Heb., the king (malki) of righteousness (tsedheq) = U.B., the primary righteous expression (of a local universe descending Son)”
Edentia etymology: The specific, original and/or archetypal (E) edenic (eden) place (-tia).
By Chris Halvorson: “the (eden)ic place (-tia)”
p2: Jerusem etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the “new Jerusalem” (Rev:21.2).
p3: Tabamantia (tab ah man’ chah). An agondonter finaliter who survived the experience of the first rebellion ever in the universes of time and space. Tabamantia currently serves as chief of universe directors responsible for the periodic inspection of all life-modification worlds in the local universe of Nebadon. 49:5.5
Etymology: (Tab) probably comes from the root of “tabulation.”
mantic (adj.): 1850, from Gk. mantikos “prophetic, oracular, of or for a soothsayer,” from mantis “prophet,” lit. “one touched by divine madness” (see mantis). Related: Mantical (1580s).
manta: very large ray (also called devilfish), 1760, from Sp. manta “blanket” (which is attested in English from 1748 in this sense, specifically in reference to a type of wrap or cloak worn by Spaniards), from L.L. mantum “cloak,” back formation from L. mantellum “cloak” (see mantle (n.)). The ray so called “for being broad and long like a quilt” [Jorge Juan and Antonio de Ulloa, “A Voyage to South America”].
Intriguing associations can be made with both mantic and manta. The “divine madness” could be related to experimental worlds. And the blanketing of the manta could relate to the way Tabamantia covers (is responsible) for an specific realm of worlds.
Section 1: The Nodites and Amadonites
The UBtheNEWS Research on the Double Dual Origin of Modern Man and pre-Modern Man page is a collection of scientific articles related to the Andon-Sangik pre-Modern Man genetic mutations and the Nodite-Adamite Modern Man genetic introductions. This Research page can be appreciated more readily if one first becomes familiar with the UBtheNEWS Eugenics, Race, and The Urantia Book paper (especially Appendix 1: a Urantia Book-based Taxonomy), the Adam and Eve Report, and the Gobekli Tepe Report. See Topical Study: Gobekli Tepe.
p3: Amadon (am’ ah don). A human descendant of Andon and Fonta who was the loyal associate of Van in advocating the rejection of Lucifer’s Manifesto approximately 200,000 years ago. 67:8.1
Amadon etymology: The one who (A) is/works together with (ama) the leader (don).
Dalamatia etymology by Chris Halvorson: “the place (-tia) [to stand] together (ama) with (Dal)igastia”
p6: Genesis 6:4 “Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.”
The Wikipedia page: Van, Turkey provides some information on Lake Van and the ancient Urartu civilization. Also see Wikipedia page: Urartu. See 2017 National Geographic video showing discovery of underwater castle in Lake Van, possibly from the Urartu civilization.
Section 2: Planning For The Garden
Section 3: The Garden Site
When The Urantia Book was first published, sonar readings needed to create a detailed map of the eastern Mediterranean basin did not exist. Such maps were not created until decades after its publication. See UBtheNEWS reports: Garden of Eden; Pangaea To Plate Tectonics.
p3: Genesis 2:5,6 “No bush of the field was yet on the earth and no vegetation of the field had begun sprouting, because Jehovah God had not made it rain on the earth and there was no man to cultivate the ground. But a mist would go up from the earth, and it watered the entire surface of the ground.”
p4: The arrow along the coast of Syria in the image above represents 27 miles.
p4: Genesis 2:10 “And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.”
p4: metric conversion: “. . . mainland was only 43 km wide at the narrowest point.”

Section 5: The Garden Home
p2: metric conversion: “. . . irrigation ditches and more than 19,300 km of paved paths and roads.”
p3: water 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”:
p4: metric conversion: “. . . emptied into the river of Eden almost 1.6 km beyond the outer or lesser wall of the Garden.”
Section 6: The Tree Of Life
See Wikipedia: Tree of Life to learn about Tree of Life mythology from around the world.

p3: 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”
p7: Genesis 3:24 “So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.”
Genesis 2:8-9 “The LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. Out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”
Genesis 3:22-24 “Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”– therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.”
Section 7: The Fate Of Eden
Taken together, the images below reveal that what looks like the described, long, narrow peninsula (now at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea) is also at the intersection of three highly active tectonic plates.
