Chapter 10: The Final Creative Thesis

Is the master universe an end, in and of itself? We know that its completion is a very distant goal, but is it a final goal? Is there a possibility that this vast creation, itself, is really a nucleus, a nucleus of something that could be even larger? Could cytoplasmic universes exist at some time beyond the outer boundary of the Quartan Space Level?

So far, we have studied two nuclear universes: Havona as the nucleus of the grand universe, and the grand universe as the nucleus of the master universe. We should now consider this possibility: that the master creation, itself, is a nucleus, perhaps the third and the final nucleus.

1. The Final Nuclear Universe

We have used four criteria to identify a nuclear creation, and it will be helpful to recapitulate these:

The Havona nucleus: In the identification of Havona as a nuclear universe (in Chapter IV, 1) we observed that the central creation is existential; it is the only such creation, no other creation could be like it because none are eternal.

The existential Infinite Spirit appeared simultaneously with the appearance of existential Havona. The Paradise Trinity formed with the appearance of the Infinite Spirit, hereditary characteristics of divine perfection were transmitted to the cytoplasmic superuniverses by God the Sevenfold, and by the other ministers and administrators who came out from the Paradise-Havona system to serve in the cytoplasmic superuniverses.

The Nuclear Grand Universe: In identifying the grand universe as the second nuclear creation, we observed: no other creation could be like the grand universe because this domain is associated with the evolution of the Supreme Being, and all subsequent creations will be post-Supreme in nature. The experiential Supreme emerged simultaneously with the perfection of the experiential superuniverses. The First Experiential Trinity was able to form as a factual reality with the completed emergence of the Supreme Being. Hereditary characteristics were transmitted from the nucleus to the cytoplasmic outer creations by the First Experiential Trinity, and by the host of concurring creators and associated creatures from the grand universe who served in these outer creations.

The Nuclear Master Universe: Now, let us apply these same criteria to the completed master universe to see if it does, or does not, constitute a nuclear creation:

These comparisons seem to indicate that the master universe is not a final end-product; that it is a nuclear creation and, as such, is similar to the grand universe and to the central universe. The master universe appears to be the nucleus of some domain that must be external to it and even greater in size.

2. The Final Creative Thesis: The Trinity Absolute

The completion of the third nuclear universe, in association with the factual formation of the Second Experiential Trinity, would appear to constitute the third (and final) creative thesis - God's final challenge to all creation. This new challenge is made real by the emergence of a new trinity, the Trinity Absolute, that is able to form in fact when God the Ultimate appears on the scene of action. The corporative members of this Trinity are:

This Trinity encompasses the sum total of all experiential attainment in the whole master creation, plus the addition of the unpredictable factor represented by the presence of the Destiny Consummator.

Let us evaluate the members of this Trinity, the Second Experiential Trinity. They represent and power-personalize almost everything that we have been studying thus far in our examination of the master universe:

It should by now become apparent why the Second Experiential Trinity is named the Trinity Absolute. Its members appear to be absolute, at least we may be sure that they are post-ultimate. This Trinity has a scope of function that includes the whole master universe and appears to project into the space regions outside of it. The First Experiential Trinity is ultimate in function; the Second is absolute. The objectives of the First Experiential Trinity were threefold:

The objectives of the Second Experiential Trinity likewise appear to be threefold:

These objectives appear to be limitless arid, therefore, may be most difficult to attain. Nevertheless, the Trinity Absolute is the post-ultimate result of the completion of the entire master universe, and the final challenge to the citizens of the post-Ultimate age.

3. The Last Mobilization

The idea of the possible mobilization of the total resources of the entire master universe is quite beyond imagination. Nevertheless, we submit that something along this line is bound to happen under the direction of the Trinity Absolute.

The first great mobilization took place in the "dawn of time." This is when the citizens of the perfect creations of eternity were challenged by the opening of the imperfect superuniverses. This is the Supreme Adventure, the adventure out into the superuniverse space level, the adventure of the Second Age.

The second mobilization followed the beginning of the Third Universe Age, when the total resources of the grand universe were marshaled by the Trinity Ultimate for the invasion of outer space. This has been named in the Papers, the Ultimate Adventure.

Now, we are trying to visualize the third mobilization - the mobilization of all the resources of the master universe - all the resources from Havona to the Quartan Space Level. This is much too much to try to visualize, but we do have the belief that some such marshaling of resources will herald the proclamation of the Absolute Adventure.

We have come quite a way in our study. We have looked back to visualize the Supreme Adventure; then forward, to try to picture the Ultimate Adventure; and now, at last, we are trying to imagine the final adventure-the Absolute Adventure.
