The Organization Of The Physical Universe!

By Dr Joshua David Stone

"The stationary isle of paradise is the geographical center of infinity and the dwelling place of the Eternal God." The Urantia Books

The Urantia book, for those of you who are not familiar with it, is another book that is truly a revelation of God. It is written by a commission of universal beings who reside in the capital of our superuniverse.

In their writings they refer to Earth as "Urantia". I would like to share with you just two paragraphs from this book which deals with this question of how our physical universe is organized. These paragraphs I have referred back to many times since I first obtained this book.

"Your world, Urantia, is one of many similar inhabited planets which comprise the local universe of "Nebadon". This universe, together with similar creations, makes up the super universe of "Orvonton", from whose capital "Uversa", our comission hails. Orvonton is one of the seven evolutionary superuniverses of time and space which circle the never-beginning, never ending creation of divine perfection --- the central universe of "Havona". At the heart of this eternal and central universe is the "Stationary Isle of Paradise, the geographic center of infinity and the dwelling place of the Eternal God." "The seven evolving superuniverses in association with the central and divine universe, we commonly refer to as the "grand universe". These are the now organized and inhabited creations. They are all a part of the master universe, which also embraces the uninhabited but mobilizing universes of outer space."

As I began to meditate on this description, what I began to realize is that the entire infinite universe is like one gigantic atom. The stationary isle of paradise is the only stationary point in all of creation. It, hence, is like the nucleus of the atom. The super-universes, universes, galaxies, solar systems are like the electrons, or protons and neutrons.

Djwhal Khul once told me that the Monad had a nucleus to it. This made sense to me for the microcosm is like the macrocosm. To look at the smallest physical particle in the material universe, is to, in truth, get a glimpse of God in the macrocosmic level also. The Urantia book also states that the physical universe extends infinitely. The stationary isle of paradise is not a time creation but an eternal existence. It is the perfect and eternal nucleus of the master universe. The master universe includes all that I have told you about so far and also embraces the uninhabited but mobilizing universes of outer space. The Urantia book then divides the outer space regions into four levels. The first, second, third, and finally fourth outer space level.

The fifth level they call open space. It states that the grand universe has an aggregate evolutionary potential of seven trillion inhabited planets. The grand universe includes everything in the universe but the outer space levels I have just mentioned. There is a potential for even more inhabited planets if the outer space levels are included. Our particular universe of Nebadon is one of the new universes in God’s creation. It lies on the outer edge of the grand universe.

So our universe, from a physical standpoint is on the outer edge from the geographic or physical standpoint of the center of the universe. This, of course, has no effect, from a spiritual standpoint of being close to God, because time and space is really only an illusion of linear time.
