Bright and Morning Star   In the earliest times of a local universe, before the creation of any other native local universe beings, the first combined act of a Creator Son and Mother Spirit results in the creation of a high spirit personality called a Bright and Morning Star. Only one such being is possible for each local universe. A Bright and Morning Star is not a creator or teacher, but an exceptional administrator, and acts in a chief executive capacity for the local universe. The Bright and Morning Star of Nebadon is Gabriel.

C

Caligastia (cal i gas' chah). A secondary Lanondek Son who served as Planetary Prince of Urantia until he betrayed his trust and joined the Lucifer rebellion approximately 200,000 years ago. 50:0.1

Etymology: The one whose (capital "C," specific) darkness (calig-) entirely (as) turns him into a non-person (-tia, normally used for impersonal names, instead of –ia, which would normally be used for a personal name). From Latin caliginosus "misty," from caliginem (nom. caligo) "mistiness, darkness, fog, gloom."Caligula was a Roman Emperor who succeeded Tiberius and whose uncontrolled passions resulted in manifest insanity; noted for his cruelty and tyranny; was assassinated.

By Chris Halvorson: "the one who is (-tia) entirely (as) darkenss (calig-) and no longer personal."

Cano (kay' noh). A brilliant leader of a Nodite colony near the Garden of Eden with whom Eve was encouraged by Serapatatia to mate, thereby causing the Adamic default approximately 37,800 years ago. 75:3.7

chronoldeks (kron ahl' deks). An order of frandalanks, or Master Physical Controllers, who register time as well as quantitative and qualitative energy presence (see frandalanks). 29:4.30

Etymology: By Chris Halvorson: "expression (-dek) of time (chronol)." "-dek < Heb., -dheq = noun-forming suffix (cf., -ness)"

Corps of the Finality   The final destination of mortals who have been admitted to Paradise after their long ascent through superuniverse training and the experiences of Havona. Of the seven different Corps of the Finality described by the book, the one specifically said to be the destination of mortals is called the Corps of Mortal Finaliters. A single corp consists of 1,000 individuals, 990 of whom are mortals fused with their Thought Adjusters, and 10 of whom are other types of beings, such as midwayers, seraphim, and Material Sons and Daughters. The book says that it is a high privilege to be inducted into a finaliter corp, and an oath is taken that eternally attaches that person to his or her corp. The book says that it is unknown what ultimate service the Corps of the Finality will perform, but that it is often speculated their work will be in the enormous developing outer space levels.

Creator Son  A powerful, high spiritual being from Paradise who is "begotten" of the Universal Father and Eternal Son. Also known as the Michael order of Sonship. One Creator Son serves as the father-like godhead of each local universe, in association with one Mother Spirit. Jesus is the Creator Son of the local universe of Nebadon, where Urantia is located. Creator Sons must experientially earn sovereignty in their local universes by incarnating as lower beings seven times. Jesus' incarnation on Urantia was his seventh and final bestowal, after previous incarnations that included experience as a Melchizedek and seraphim, among others. His seventh bestowal &mdash; also called the terminal bestowal &mdash; was in the form of the lowest intelligent creature of the universe, an evolutionary mortal, and the successful completion of all the bestowals technically classifies him as a Master Michael now instead of simply a Creator Son. The book says that there are more than 700,000 Michael order Sons in existence.

Cymboyton (sim boy' ton). A wealthy Urmia merchant at whose school of religion Jesus taught in the spring of A.D. 25. 134:3.2
