(Presentation from ANZURA’s Virtual 2021 Annual Conference) There’s an old insight about village life: “I am because we are.” I, as an individual, get to live a worthwhile life because of the security and relationships that my village provides. “I am because we are.” I think we’d all agree there’s truth in this very human … read more of We Are, Because I AM.
(Presentation from ANZURA’s Virtual 2021 Annual Conference) How Is Goodness Stabilizing?

Yet the oneness of God persists. All his constituent parts are … read more of The Stability of Goodness.
The Urantia Book presents a cosmology that stirs the soul: a central and perfect universe, fringed by spacetime shallows in which finaliters are born—finaliters, destined to launch from this cosmic continental shelf into oceanic depths, seeding the light and life of personality throughout nested levels of outer space. Soul stirring indeed! A cosmology pervaded by … read more of Video Part 4D: Ancient Orvonton, and a Young Cosmic Web.

Interesting development: for 40 years cosmologists have been arguing about the best way to simulate (1) the clustering of galaxies and (2) the flat rotation curves of spiral galaxies. Invisible (dark) matter works well for explaining the clustering, but modified Newtonian gravity works better for spiral galaxies. Around 2015, researchers began to take seriously the … read more of Recent Developments in the Astrophysics Sector.
Diversity is one of the dominant aspects of the universe as described in The Urantia Book. It pervades all of the grand universe, including spiritual and ascending beings and the physical environments. Diversity presents challenges to us all as we go about our daily lives, but because of its never-ending and constantly expanding presence, it is very important to learn how to deal with it here on Urantia in preparation for our future universe career.
