Growth is the earmark of experiential Deity, and experiential growth implies creature-Creator partnership—God and man in association. The experience of every evolving creature personality is a phase of the experience of the Almighty Supreme. The intelligent subjugation of every physical segment of the superuniverses is a part of the growing control, the evolution, of the Almighty Supreme.

Notes by Brad

  • Transcendent phenomena express in the finite in downstepped ways
    • The Supreme Being expresses as:
      • The Universal Mother. "She." Personal-purposive essence of The Supreme Being. Downwelling.
      • The Almighty Supreme. Power-pattern essence of The Supreme Being. Upwelling
      • Energy pattern (power) and spirit pattern (personality) are two sides of the same coin. If they weren't somehow related, they couldn't be synthesized.
      • These are not a synthesis themselves, but they are synthesizing together in the finite.
      • What is the synthesis? The Supreme Being (aka The Supreme Father), transcendent of the finite.
    • The Paradise Trinity expresses as The Trinity of Supremacy
    • Transcendent beings like this must exist outside the finite. Including the Universal Father.
    • If they didn't, we couldn't exist!
    • "In Him we move and live and have our being." This is only true in essence, not substance.


  • As above, so below.
    • A few basic aspects/phases/elements in the cosmos are repeated hierarchically.
      • In the most fundamental sense, therefore, the cosmos is not that complicated.
      • The complication arises from the endless levels on which the patterns are repeated.
    • You, me, even galaxies.
    • Pattern is imposed from a transcendent level, so it must manifest at all scales down in the finite.
    • Our minds express a pattern as well: downwelling and upwelling.
      • Spiritized mind. The personal-purposive that's downwelling spirit-based.
      • Adjutant mind-spirit mind. The power-pattern that's upwelling, matter-based.


  • God the Mother is the way
    • No your position in the ascending career, the next infinitesimally small way forward is provided by God the Mother.
      • Different than God the Sevenfold, where the next step (meeting out Creator Son) is a long way off.
    • But God the Mother won't speak to you about what to order for lunch. No trivial minutiae.
      • Like God the Father, God the Mother also is a top-down, big-picture fact.
      • You must make decisions, decision, and more decisions. No magical parking spaces provided for you.
    • For prayers, The Father is the will, The Mother is the way.
      • But in all cases, the answer to all prayers is big picture.
      • Humble prayers supply favorable conditions so you can be grown. To the point someday of knowing the answer before you even ask.


  • "Our immediate supervisors": finite being who claim to rule by divine right and are our overseers.
    • That's the way things are for us.
    • That's what Lucifer didn't like so much. A finite, potentially fallible overseer.


  • The reason the mind-body problem hadn't been solved is that the solution is super-absolute!


  • Reading human metaphysics with impenetrable, dense verbiage? That's a brilliant author trying to compensate for a thimble sized concept frame that can't hold the big ideas they're attempting to explain.
    • If there's truth to a thought, it can be expressed simply.
    • The Urantia Book's presentation is clear and direct, unlike (say) Hegel's writings.
      • Those without eyes to see will therefore dismiss The Urantia Book.
    • The Urantia Book is what 2600 years of true philosophers have been wishing for—true metaphysics, authoritative elimination of error... a revelation.
