THE SUPERUNIVERSE OF ORVONTON

Practically all of the starry realms visible to the naked eye on Urantia belong to the seventh section of the grand universe, the superuniverse of Orvonton. The vast Milky Way starry system represents the central nucleus of Orvonton, being largely beyond the borders of your local universe. This great aggregation of suns, dark islands of space, double stars, globular clusters, star clouds, spiral and other nebulae, together with myriads of individual planets, forms a watchlike, elongated-circular grouping of about one seventh of the inhabited evolutionary universes.

From the astronomical position of Urantia, as you look through the cross section of near-by systems to the great Milky Way, you observe that the spheres of Orvonton are traveling in a vast elongated plane, the breadth being far greater than the thickness and the length far greater than the breadth.

Observation of the so-called Milky Way discloses the comparative increase in Orvonton stellar density when the heavens are viewed in one direction, while on either side the density diminishes; the number of stars and other spheres decreases away from the chief plane of our material superuniverse. When the angle of observation is propitious, gazing through the main body of this realm of maximum density, you are looking toward the residential universe and the center of all things.

Of the ten major divisions of Orvonton, eight have been roughly identified by Urantian astronomers. The other two are difficult of separate recognition because you are obliged to view these phenomena from the inside. If you could look upon the superuniverse of Orvonton from a position far-distant in space, you would immediately recognize the ten major sectors of the seventh galaxy.

Your local universe of Nebadon belongs to Orvonton, the seventh superuniverse, which swings on between superuniverses one and six, having not long since (as we reckon time) turned the southeastern bend of the superuniverse space level. Today, the solar system to which Urantia belongs is a few billion years past the swing around the southern curvature so that you are just now advancing beyond the southeastern bend and are moving swiftly through the long and comparatively straightaway northern path. For untold ages Orvonton will pursue this almost direct northerly course.

Urantia belongs to a system which is well out towards the borderland of your local universe; and your local universe is at present traversing the periphery of Orvonton. Beyond you there are still others, but you are far removed in space from those physical systems which swing around the great circle in comparative proximity to the Great Source and Center.

I am sure most know about this numbers, however it is good to remind US that the inward journey to the center of the creation to the right hand of the Father, has barely begun.

 

 

 

Excluding the Paradise-Havona spheres, the plan of universe organization provides for the following units:

Superuniverses . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7

Major sectors . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . 70

Minor sectors . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. 7,000

Local universes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 700,000

Constellations . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 70,000,000

Local systems . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . 7,000,000,000

Inhabitable planets . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7,000,000,000,000

Each of the seven superuniverses is constituted, approximately, as follows:

One system embraces, approximately . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1,000 worlds

One constellation (100 systems) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 100,000 worlds

One universe (100 constellations) . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10,000,000 worlds

One minor sector (100 universes) . . . . . . . . . . 1,000,000,000 worlds

One major sector (100 minor sectors) . . . . . 100,000,000,000 worlds

One superuniverse (10 major sectors) . . . . 1,000,000,000,000 worlds

All such estimates are approximations at best, for new systems are constantly evolving while other organizations are temporarily passing out of material existence.

Candace: This is not the entire paper 15. I just picked this part off AHS yahoo group.
