Superuniverse Speculations

Monday, February 12, 2018    

The newly expanded and improved edition of Superuniverse Speculations on the Scale of Orvonton has just been released on Amazon. Among many editorial changes, I have added a new chapter exploring problems and possibilities about the cosmography of Splandon, our major sector. All the chapters, especially nebulae classification, have been improved and edited to make a much more comprehensive superuniverse speculative overview.

What I have done is to explore every conceivable speculation about what comprises Orvonton. I attempt to leave no stone unturned in trying to understand and reconcile epochal revelation with modern astronomy. No study yet has been as in-depth as this book seeks to accomplish.

If you are curious about cosmology and the Urantia Book, then this book should be in your Urantia library.

This is a fascinating study, and I hope it will attract the attention of Urantia book believers who are curious about the beauty of revealed cosmology and our place in our cosmic loving home.

You can order the book on Amazon. Type “tom allen superuniverse” into Google, and you can find the book easily.

The fingers of your thoughts are molding your face ceaselessly.      --Charles Reznikoff, poet (1894-1976)

(101:1.3) The divine spirit makes contact with mortal man, not by feelings or emotions, but in the realm of the highest and most spiritualized thinking. It is your thoughts, not your feelings, that lead you Godward. The divine nature may be perceived only with the eyes of the mind. But the mind that really discerns God, hears the indwelling Adjuster, is the pure mind. "Without holiness no man may see the Lord." All such inner and spiritual communion is termed spiritual insight. Such religious experiences result from the impress made upon the mind of man by the combined operations of the Adjuster and the Spirit of Truth as they function amid and upon the ideas, ideals, insights, and spirit strivings of the evolving sons of God.

(112:6.3) To a certain extent, the appearance of the material body-form is responsive to the character of the personality identity; the physical body does, to a limited degree, reflect something of the inherent nature of the personality. Still more so does the morontia form. In the physical life, mortals may be outwardly beautiful though inwardly unlovely; in the morontia life, and increasingly on its higher levels, the personality form will vary directly in accordance with the nature of the inner person. On the spiritual level, outward form and inner nature begin to approximate complete identification, which grows more and more perfect on higher and higher spirit levels.

(179:1.8) They were now ready to begin the supper, except that their feet were still unwashed, and they were in anything but a pleasant frame of mind. When the Master arrived, they were still engaged in making uncomplimentary remarks about one another, to say nothing of the thoughts of some who had sufficient emotional control to refrain from publicly expressing their feelings.

(195:7.21) In language, an alphabet represents the mechanism of materialism, while the words expressive of the meaning of a thousand thoughts, grand ideas, and noble ideals—of love and hate, of cowardice and courage—represent the performances of mind within the scope defined by both material and spiritual law, directed by the assertion of the will of personality, and limited by the inherent situational endowment.

     Charles Reznikoff was an American poet best known for his long work, Testimony: The United States (1885-1915), Recitative (1934-1979). The term Objectivist was coined for him. The multi-volume Hedigmony was based on court records and explored the experiences of immigrants, black people and the urban and rural poor in the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He followed this with Holocaust (1975), based on court testimony about Nazi death camps during World War II.
     In 1930 Reznikoff married Marie Syrkin, a prominent Zionist and friend and biographer of Golda Meir. Although they did not live together at all times during the marriage, it lasted until Reznikoff's death.
     When Louis Zukofsky was asked by Harriet Monroe to provide an introduction to what became known as the Objectivist issue of Poetry, he contributed his essay, Sincerity and Objectification: With Special Reference to the Work of Charles Reznikoff. This established the name of the loose-knit group of 2nd generation modernist poets and the two characteristics of their poetry: sincerity and objectification.

There is a beauty in discovery. There is mathematics in music, a kinship of science and poetry in the description of nature, and exquisite form in a molecule. Attempts to place different disciplines in different camps are revealed as artificial in the face of the unity of knowledge. All literate men are sustained by the philosopher, the historian, the political analyst, the economist, the scientist, the poet, the artisan and the musician.      --Glenn T. Seaborg, scientist, Nobel laureate (1912-1999)

(101:2.2) Reason is the method of science; faith is the method of religion; logic is the attempted technique of philosophy. Revelation compensates for the absence of the morontia viewpoint by providing a technique for achieving unity in the comprehension of the reality and relationships of matter and spirit by the mediation of mind. And true revelation never renders science unnatural, religion unreasonable, or philosophy illogical.
