p2Caligastia 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.”

p2: See Behzad (Robert) Sarmast’s study on Magisterial Missions. 

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

p3Nebadon 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”


Section 2: The Sage of Salem

p5metric conversion: “. . . being almost 1.8 m in height and possessing a commanding presence.”


Section 3: Melchizedek’s Teachings

p2Norlatiadek 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.”

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

p3Vorondadek 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)”

p4Havona 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”


p3Trinity concept: Beyond the Paper 104, which is dedicated to the subject, other references can be found at: (92:5.9), (93:3.3), (94:1.3), (95:6.5), (142:3.6).

Section 4: The Salem Religion

Note that the seven commandments are all expressed in the negative, even ones that could have easily been reworded in a positive way. Consider why the evolutionary process starts with teaching boundaries– commandments about how to not cause trouble rather than commandments to actually go about doing good. Compare with 66:7–the Dalamatia teachings (pre rebellion) were also all negative.


Section 5: The Selection of Abraham

p7Egypt A research paper titled “Ancient Egyptian mummy genomes suggest an increase of Sub-Saharan African ancestry in post-Roman periods” was published by Nature Communications in 2017. From the abstract: “The samples recovered from Middle Egypt span around 1,300 years of ancient Egyptian history from the New Kingdom to the Roman Period. Our analyses reveal that ancient Egyptians shared more ancestry with Near Easterners than present-day Egyptians, who received additional sub-Saharan admixture in more recent times. This analysis establishes ancient Egyptian mummies as a genetic source to study ancient human history and offers the perspective of deciphering Egypt’s past at a genome-wide level.”


p8: vows See 89:3.1 “Renunciation came as the next step in religious evolution; fasting was a common practice. Soon it became the custom to forgo many forms of physical pleasure, especially of a sexual nature. The ritual of the fast was deeply rooted in many ancient religions and has been handed down to practically all modern theologic systems of thought.”

Section 6: Melchizedek’s Covenant with Abraham


Section 7: The Melchizedek Missionaries

p2Lake Van 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.

p1: See Behzad (Robert) Sarmast’s study on Magisterial Missions.

p6Uversa 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.”

p7With 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.”
