THE LOCAL SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION
45:0.1 THE administrative center of Satania consists
of a cluster of architectural spheres, fifty-seven in number -- Jerusem
itself, the seven major satellites, and the forty-nine subsatellites. Jerusem,
the system capital, is almost one hundred times the size of Urantia, although
its gravity is a trifle less. Jerusem's major satellites are the seven
transition worlds, each of which is about ten times as large as Urantia, while
the seven subsatellites of these transition spheres are just about the size of
45:0.2 The seven mansion worlds are the seven
subsatellites of transition world number one.
45:0.3 This entire system of fifty-seven
architectural worlds is independently lighted, heated, watered, and energized
by the co-ordination of the Satania Power Center and the Master Physical
Controllers in accordance with the established technique of the physical
organization and arrangement of these specially created spheres. They are also
physically cared for and otherwise maintained by the native spornagia.
1. TRANSITIONAL CULTURE WORLDS
45:1.1 The seven major worlds swinging around
Jerusem are generally known as the transitional culture spheres. Their rulers
are designated from time to time by the Jerusem supreme executive council.
These spheres are numbered and named as follows:
45:1.2 Number 1. The Finaliter World. This is
the headquarters of the finaliter corps of the local system and is surrounded
by the receiving worlds, the seven mansion worlds, dedicated so fully to the
scheme of mortal ascension. The finaliter world is accessible to the
inhabitants of all seven mansion worlds. Transport seraphim carry ascending
personalities back and forth on these pilgrimages, which are designed to
cultivate their faith in the ultimate destiny of transition mortals. Although
the finaliters and their structures are not ordinarily perceptible to morontia
vision, you will be more than thrilled, from time to time, when the energy
transformers and the Morontia Power Supervisors enable you momentarily to
glimpse these high spirit personalities who have actually completed the
Paradise ascension, and who have returned to the very worlds where you are
beginning this long journey, as the pledge of assurance that you may and can
complete the stupendous undertaking. All mansion world sojourners go to the
finaliter sphere at least once a year for these assemblies of finaliter
45:1.3 Number 2. The Morontia World. This
planet is the headquarters of the supervisors of morontia life and is
surrounded by the seven spheres whereon the morontia chiefs train their
associates and helpers, both morontia beings and ascending mortals.
45:1.4 In passing through the seven mansion worlds,
you will also progress through these cultural and social spheres of increasing
morontia contact. When you advance from the first to the second mansion world,
you will become eligible for a visitor's permit to transitional headquarters
number two, the morontia world, and so on. And when present on any one of
these six cultural spheres, you may, on invitation, become a visitor and
observer on any of the seven surrounding worlds of associated group
45:1.5 Number 3. The Angelic World. This is
the headquarters of all the seraphic hosts engaged in system activities and is
surrounded by the seven worlds of angelic training and instruction. These are
the seraphic social spheres.
45:1.6 Number 4. The Superangel World. This
sphere is the Satania home of the Brilliant Evening Stars and a vast concourse
of co-ordinate and near-co-ordinate beings. The seven satellites of this world
are assigned to the seven major groups of these unnamed celestial beings.
45:1.7 Number 5. The World of the Sons. This
planet is the headquarters of the divine Sons of all orders, including the
creature-trinitized sons. The surrounding seven worlds are devoted to certain
individual groupings of these divinely related sons.
45:1.8 Number 6. The World of the Spirit.
This sphere serves as the system rendezvous of the high personalities of the
Infinite Spirit. Its seven surrounding satellites are assigned to individual
groups of these diverse orders. But on transition world number six there is no
representation of the Spirit, neither is such a presence to be observed on the
system capitals; the Divine Minister of Salvington is everywhere in Nebadon.
45:1.9 Number 7. The World of the Father.
This is the silent sphere of the system. No group of beings is domiciled on
it. The great temple of light occupies a central place, but no one can be
discerned therein. All beings of all the system worlds are welcomed as
45:1.10 The seven satellites surrounding the
Father's world are variously utilized in the different systems. In Satania
they are now used as the detention spheres for the interned groups of the
Lucifer rebellion. The constellation capital, Edentia, has no analogous prison
worlds; the few seraphim and cherubim who went over to the rebels in the
Satania rebellion have been long since confined on these isolation worlds of
45:1.11 As a sojourner on the seventh mansion world,
you have access to the seventh transition world, the sphere of the Universal
Father, and are also permitted to visit the Satania prison worlds surrounding
this planet, whereon are now confined Lucifer and the majority of those
personalities who followed him in rebellion against Michael. And this sad
spectacle has been observable during these recent ages and will continue to
serve as a solemn warning to all Nebadon until the Ancients of Days shall
adjudicate the sin of Lucifer and his fallen associates who rejected the
salvation proffered by Michael, their universe Father.
2. THE SYSTEM SOVEREIGN
45:2.1 The chief executive of a local system of
inhabited worlds is a primary Lanonandek Son, the System Sovereign. In our
local universe these sovereigns are intrusted with large executive
responsibilities, unusual personal prerogatives. Not all universes, even in
Orvonton, are so organized as to permit the System Sovereigns to exercise such
unusually wide powers of personal discretion in the direction of system
affairs. But in all the history of Nebadon these untrammeled executives have
exhibited disloyalty only three times. The Lucifer rebellion in the system of
Satania was the last and the most widespread of all.
45:2.2 In Satania, even after this disastrous
upheaval, absolutely no changes have been made in the technique of system
administration. The present System Sovereign possesses all the power and
exercises all the authority that were invested in his unworthy predecessor
except for certain matters now under the supervision of the Constellation
Fathers which the Ancients of Days have not yet fully restored to Lanaforge,
the successor of Lucifer.
45:2.3 The present head of Satania is a gracious and
brilliant ruler, and he is a rebellion-tested sovereign. When serving as an
assistant System Sovereign, Lanaforge was faithful to Michael in an earlier
upheaval in the universe of Nebadon. This mighty and brilliant Lord of Satania
is a tried and tested administrator. At the time of the second system
rebellion in Nebadon, when the System Sovereign stumbled and fell into
darkness, Lanaforge, the first assistant to the erring chief, seized the reins
of government and so conducted the affairs of the system that comparatively
few personalities were lost either on the headquarters worlds or on the
inhabited planets of that unfortunate system. Lanaforge bears the distinction
of being the only primary Lanonandek Son in all Nebadon who thus functioned
loyally in the service of Michael and in the very presence of the default of
his brother of superior authority and antecedent rank. Lanaforge will probably
not be removed from Jerusem until all the results of the former folly have
been overcome and the products of rebellion removed from Satania.
45:2.4 While all the affairs of the isolated worlds
of Satania have not been returned to his jurisdiction, Lanaforge discloses
great interest in their welfare, and he is a frequent visitor on Urantia. As
in other and normal systems, the Sovereign presides over the system council of
world rulers, the Planetary Princes and the resident governors general of the
isolated worlds. This planetary council assembles from time to time on the
headquarters of the system -- "When the Sons of God come together."
45:2.5 Once a week, every ten days on Jerusem, the
Sovereign holds a conclave with some one group of the various orders of
personalities domiciled on the headquarters world. These are the charmingly
informal hours of Jerusem, and they are never-to-be-forgotten occasions. On
Jerusem there exists the utmost fraternity between all the various orders of
beings and between each of these groups and the System Sovereign.
45:2.6 These unique assemblages occur on the sea of
glass, the great gathering field of the system capital. They are purely social
and spiritual occasions; nothing pertaining to the planetary administration or
even to the ascendant plan is ever discussed. Ascending mortals come together
at these times merely to enjoy themselves and to meet their fellow
Jerusemites. Those groups which are not being entertained by the Sovereign at
these weekly relaxations meet at their own headquarters.
3. THE SYSTEM GOVERNMENT
45:3.1 The chief executive of a local system, the
System Sovereign, is always supported by two or three Lanonandek Sons, who
function as first and second assistants. But at the present time the system of
Satania is administered by a staff of seven Lanonandeks:
45:3.2 1. The System Sovereign -- Lanaforge,
number 2,709 of the primary order and successor to the apostate
45:3.3 2. The first assistant Sovereign --
Mansurotia, number 17,841 of the tertiary Lanonandeks. He was dispatched to
Satania along with Lanaforge.
45:3.4 3. The second assistant Sovereign --
Sadib, number 271,402 of the tertiary order. Sadib also came to Satania with
45:3.5 4. The custodian of the system --
Holdant, number 19 of the tertiary corps, the holder and controller of all
interned spirits above the order of mortal existence. Holdant likewise came to
Satania with Lanaforge.
45:3.6 5. The system recorder -- Vilton,
secretary of the Lanonandek ministry of Satania, number 374 of the third
order. Vilton was a member of the original Lanaforge group.
45:3.7 6. The bestowal director -- Fortant,
number 319,847 of the reserves of the secondary Lanonandeks and temporary
director of all universe activities transplanted to Jerusem since Michael's
bestowal on Urantia. Fortant has been attached to the staff of Lanaforge for
nineteen hundred years of Urantia time.
45:3.8 7. The high counselor -- Hanavard,
number 67 of the primary Lanonandek Sons and a member of the high corps of
universe counselors and co-ordinators. He functions as acting chairman of the
executive council of Satania. Hanavard is the twelfth of this order so to
serve on Jerusem since the Lucifer rebellion.
45:3.9 This executive group of seven Lanonandeks
constitutes the expanded emergency administration made necessary by the
exigencies of the Lucifer rebellion. There are only minor courts on Jerusem
since the system is the unit of administration, not adjudication, but the
Lanonandek administration is supported by the Jerusem executive council, the
supreme advisory body of Satania. This council consists of twelve
1. Hanavard, the Lanonandek chairman.
2. Lanaforge, the System Sovereign.
3. Mansurotia, the first assistant Sovereign.
4. The chief of Satania Melchizedeks.
5. The acting director of the Satania Life
6. The chief of the Satania finaliters.
7. The original Adam of Satania, the supervising
head of the Material Sons.
8. The director of the Satania seraphic hosts.
9. The chief of the Satania physical controllers.
10. The director of the system Morontia Power
11. The acting director of system midway
12. The acting head of the corps of ascending
45:3.10 This council periodically chooses three
members to represent the local system on the supreme council at universe
headquarters, but this representation is suspended by rebellion. Satania now
has an observer at the headquarters of the local universe, but since the
bestowal of Michael the system has resumed the election of ten members to the
4. THE FOUR AND TWENTY COUNSELORS
45:4.1 At the center of the seven angelic
residential circles on Jerusem is located the headquarters of the Urantia
advisory council, the four and twenty counselors. John the Revelator called
them the four and twenty elders: "And round about the throne were four and
twenty seats, and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed
in white raiment." The throne in the center of this group is the judgment seat
of the presiding archangel, the throne of the resurrection roll call of mercy
and justice for all Satania. This judgment seat has always been on Jerusem,
but the twenty-four surrounding seats were placed in position no more than
nineteen hundred years ago, soon after Christ Michael was elevated to the full
sovereignty of Nebadon. These four and twenty counselors are his personal
agents on Jerusem, and they have authority to represent the Master Son in all
matters concerning the roll calls of Satania and in many other phases of the
scheme of mortal ascension on the isolated worlds of the system. They are the
designated agents for executing the special requests of Gabriel and the
unusual mandates of Michael.
45:4.2 These twenty-four counselors have been
recruited from the eight Urantia races, and the last of this group were
assembled at the time of the resurrection roll call of Michael, nineteen
hundred years ago. This Urantia advisory council is made up of the following
45:4.3 1. Onagar, the master mind of the
pre-Planetary Prince age, who directed his fellows in the worship of "The
45:4.4 2. Mansant, the great teacher of the
post-Planetary Prince age on Urantia, who pointed his fellows to the
veneration of "The Great Light."
45:4.5 3. Onamonalonton, a far-distant leader
of the red man and the one who directed this race from the worship of many
gods to the veneration of "The Great Spirit."
45:4.6 4. Orlandof, a prince of the blue men
and their leader in the recognition of the divinity of "The Supreme
45:4.7 5. Porshunta, the oracle of the
extinct orange race and the leader of this people in the worship of "The Great
45:4.8 6. Singlangton, the first of the
yellow men to teach and lead his people in the worship of "One Truth" instead
of many. Thousands of years ago the yellow man knew of the one God.
45:4.9 7. Fantad, the deliverer of the green
men from darkness and their leader in the worship of "The One Source of
45:4.10 8. Orvonon, the enlightener of the
indigo races and their leader in the onetime service of "The God of
45:4.11 9. Adam, the discredited but
rehabilitated planetary father of Urantia, a Material Son of God who was
relegated to the likeness of mortal flesh, but who survived and was
subsequently elevated to this position by the decree of Michael.
45:4.12 10. Eve, the mother of the violet
race of Urantia, who suffered the penalty of default with her mate and was
also rehabilitated with him and assigned to serve with this group of mortal
45:4.13 11. Enoch, the first of the mortals
of Urantia to fuse with the Thought Adjuster during the mortal life in the
45:4.14 12. Moses, the emancipator of a
remnant of the submerged violet race and the instigator of the revival of the
worship of the Universal Father under the name of "The God of
45:4.15 13. Elijah, a translated soul of
brilliant spiritual achievement during the post-Material Son age.
45:4.16 14. Machiventa Melchizedek, the only
Son of this order to bestow himself upon the Urantia races. While still
numbered as a Melchizedek, he has become "forever a minister of the Most
Highs," eternally assuming the assignment of service as a mortal ascender,
having sojourned on Urantia in the likeness of mortal flesh at Salem in the
days of Abraham. This Melchizedek has latterly been proclaimed vicegerent
Planetary Prince of Urantia with headquarters on Jerusem and authority to act
in behalf of Michael, who is actually the Planetary Prince of the world
whereon he experienced his terminal bestowal in human form. Notwithstanding
this, Urantia is still supervised by successive resident governors general,
members of the four and twenty counselors.
45:4.17 15. John the Baptist, the forerunner
of Michael's mission on Urantia and, in the flesh, distant cousin of the Son
45:4.18 16. 1-2-3 the First, the leader of
the loyal midway creatures in the service of Gabriel at the time of the
Caligastia betrayal, elevated to this position by Michael soon after his
entrance upon unconditioned sovereignty.
45:4.19 These selected personalities are exempt from
the ascension regime for the time being, on Gabriel's request, and we have no
idea how long they may serve in this capacity.
45:4.20 Seats numbers 17, 18, 19, and 20 are not
permanently occupied. They are temporarily filled by the unanimous consent of
the sixteen permanent members, being kept open for later assignment to
ascending mortals from the present postbestowal Son age on Urantia.
45:4.21 Numbers 21, 22, 23, and 24 are likewise
temporarily filled while being held in reserve for the great teachers of other
and subsequent ages which undoubtedly will follow the present age. Eras of the
Magisterial Sons and Teacher Sons and the ages of light and life are to be
anticipated on Urantia, regardless of unexpected visitations of divine Sons
which may or may not occur.
5. THE MATERIAL SONS
45:5.1 The great divisions of celestial life have
their headquarters and immense preserves on Jerusem, including the various
orders of divine Sons, high spirits, superangels, angels, and midway
creatures. The central abode of this wonderful sector is the chief temple of
the Material Sons.
45:5.2 The domain of the Adams is the center of
attraction to all new arrivals on Jerusem. It is an enormous area consisting
of one thousand centers, although each family of Material Sons and Daughters
lives on an estate of its own up to the time of the departure of its members
for service on the evolutionary worlds of space or until their embarkation
upon the Paradise-ascension career.
45:5.3 These Material Sons are the highest type of
sex-reproducing beings to be found on the training spheres of the evolving
universes. And they are really material; even the Planetary Adams and Eves are
plainly visible to the mortal races of the inhabited worlds. These Material
Sons are the last and physical link in the chain of personalities extending
from divinity and perfection above down to humanity and material existence
below. These Sons provide the inhabited worlds with a mutually contactable
intermediary between the invisible Planetary Prince and the material creatures
of the realms.
45:5.4 At the last millennial registration on
Salvington there were of record in Nebadon 161,432,840 Material Sons and
Daughters of citizenship status on the local system capitals. The number of
Material Sons varies in the different systems, and their number is being
constantly increased by natural reproduction. In the exercise of their
reproductive functions they are not guided wholly by the personal desires of
the contacting personalities but also by the higher governing bodies and
45:5.5 These Material Sons and Daughters are the
permanent inhabitants of Jerusem and its associated worlds. They occupy vast
estates on Jerusem and participate liberally in the local management of the
capital sphere, administering practically all routine affairs with the
assistance of the midwayers and the ascenders.
45:5.6 On Jerusem these reproducing Sons are
permitted to experiment with the ideals of self-government after the manner of
the Melchizedeks, and they are achieving a very high type of society. The
higher orders of sonship reserve the veto functions of the realm, but in
nearly every respect the Jerusem Adamites govern themselves by universal
suffrage and representative government. Some time they hope to be granted
virtually complete autonomy.
45:5.7 The character of the service of the Material
Sons is largely determined by their ages. While they are not eligible for
admission to the Melchizedek University of Salvington -- being material and
ordinarily limited to certain planets -- nevertheless, the Melchizedeks
maintain strong faculties of teachers on the headquarters of each system for
the instruction of the younger generations of Material Sons. The educational
and spiritual training systems provided for the development of the younger
Material Sons and Daughters are the acme of perfection in scope, technique,
6. ADAMIC TRAINING OF ASCENDERS
45:6.1 The Material Sons and Daughters, together
with their children, present an engaging spectacle which never fails to arouse
the curiosity and intrigue the attention of all ascending mortals. They are so
similar to your own material sex races that you both find much of common
interest to engage your thoughts and occupy your seasons of fraternal
45:6.2 Mortal survivors spend much of their leisure
on the system capital observing and studying the life habits and conduct of
these superior semiphysical sex creatures, for these citizens of Jerusem are
the immediate sponsors and mentors of the mortal survivors from the time they
attain citizenship on the headquarters world until they take leave for
45:6.3 On the seven mansion worlds ascending mortals
are afforded ample opportunities for compensating any and all experiential
deprivations suffered on their worlds of origin, whether due to inheritance,
environment, or unfortunate premature termination of the career in the flesh.
This is in every sense true except in the mortal sex life and its attendant
adjustments. Thousands of mortals reach the mansion worlds without having
benefited particularly from the disciplines derived from fairly average sex
relations on their native spheres. The mansion world experience can provide
little opportunity for compensating these very personal deprivations. Sex
experience in a physical sense is past for these ascenders, but in close
association with the Material Sons and Daughters, both individually and as
members of their families, these sex-deficient mortals are enabled to
compensate the social, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual aspects of their
deficiency. Thus are all those humans whom circumstances or bad judgment
deprived of the benefits of advantageous sex association on the evolutionary
worlds, here on the system capitals afforded full opportunity to acquire these
essential mortal experiences in close and loving association with the supernal
Adamic sex creatures of permanent residence on the system capitals.
45:6.4 No surviving mortal, midwayer, or seraphim
may ascend to Paradise, attain the Father, and be mustered into the Corps of
the Finality without having passed through that sublime experience of
achieving parental relationship to an evolving child of the worlds or some
other experience analogous and equivalent thereto. The relationship of child
and parent is fundamental to the essential concept of the Universal Father and
his universe children. Therefore does such an experience become indispensable
to the experiential training of all ascenders.
45:6.5 The ascending midway creatures and the
evolutionary seraphim must pass through this parenthood experience in
association with the Material Sons and Daughters of the system headquarters.
Thus do such nonreproducing ascenders obtain the experience of parenthood by
assisting the Jerusem Adams and Eves in rearing and training their
45:6.6 All mortal survivors who have not experienced
parenthood on the evolutionary worlds must also obtain this necessary training
while sojourning in the homes of the Jerusem Material Sons and as parental
associates of these superb fathers and mothers. This is true except in so far
as such mortals have been able to compensate their deficiencies on the system
nursery located on the first transitional-culture world of Jerusem.
45:6.7 This probation nursery of Satania is
maintained by certain morontia personalities on the finaliters' world, one
half of the planet being devoted to this work of child rearing. Here are
received and reassembled certain children of surviving mortals, such as those
offspring who perished on the evolutionary worlds before acquiring spiritual
status as individuals. The ascension of either of its natural parents insures
that such a mortal child of the realms will be accorded repersonalization on
the system finaliter planet and there be permitted to demonstrate by
subsequent freewill choice whether or not it elects to follow the parental
path of mortal ascension. Children here appear as on the nativity world except
for the absence of sex differentiation. There is no reproduction of mortal
kind after the life experience on the inhabited worlds.
45:6.8 Mansion world students who have one or more
children in the probationary nursery on the finaliters' world, and who are
deficient in essential parental experience, may apply for a Melchizedek permit
which will effect their temporary transfer from ascension duties on the
mansion worlds to the finaliter world, where they are granted opportunity to
function as associate parents to their own and other children. This service of
parental ministry may be later accredited on Jerusem as the fulfillment of one
half of the training which such ascenders are required to undergo in the
families of the Material Sons and Daughters.
45:6.9 The probation nursery itself is supervised by
one thousand couples of Material Sons and Daughters, volunteers from the
Jerusem colony of their order. They are immediately assisted by about an equal
number of volunteer midsonite parental groups who stop off here to render this
service on their way from the midsonite world of Satania to the unrevealed
destiny on their special worlds of reservation among the finaliter spheres of
7. THE MELCHIZEDEK SCHOOLS
45:7.1 The Melchizedeks are the directors of that
large corps of instructors -- partially spiritualized will creatures and
others -- who function so acceptably on Jerusem and its associated worlds but
especially on the seven mansion worlds. These are the detention planets, where
those mortals who fail to achieve fusion with their indwelling Adjusters
during the life in the flesh are rehabilitated in transient form to receive
further help and to enjoy extended opportunity for continuing their strivings
for spiritual attainment, those very efforts which were prematurely
interrupted by death. Or if, for any other reason of hereditary handicap,
unfavorable environment, or conspiracy of circumstances, this soul attainment
was not completed, no matter what the reason, all who are true of purpose and
worthy in spirit find themselves, as themselves, present on the continuing
planets, where they must learn to master the essentials of the eternal career,
to possess themselves of traits which they could not, or did not, acquire
during the lifetime in the flesh.
45:7.2 The Brilliant Evening Stars (and their
unnamed co-ordinates) frequently serve as teachers in the various educational
enterprises of the universe, including those sponsored by the Melchizedeks.
Also do the Trinity Teacher Sons collaborate, and they impart the touches of
Paradise perfection to these progressive training schools. But all these
activities are not exclusively devoted to the advancement of ascending
mortals; many are equally occupied with the progressive training of the native
spirit personalities of Nebadon.
45:7.3 The Melchizedek Sons conduct upward of thirty
different educational centers on Jerusem. These training schools begin with
the college of self-evaluation and end with the schools of Jerusem
citizenship, wherein the Material Sons and Daughters join with the
Melchizedeks and others in their supreme effort to qualify the mortal
survivors for the assumption of the high responsibilities of representative
government. The entire universe is organized and administered on the
representative plan. Representative government is the divine ideal of
self-government among nonperfect beings.
45:7.4 Every one hundred years of universe time each
system selects its ten representatives to sit in the constellation
legislature. They are chosen by the Jerusem council of one thousand, an
elective body charged with the duty of representing the system groups in all
such delegated or appointive matters. All representatives or other delegates
are selected by the council of one thousand electors, and they must be
graduates of the highest school of the Melchizedek College of Administration,
as also are all of those who constitute this group of one thousand electors.
This school is fostered by the Melchizedeks, latterly assisted by the
45:7.5 There are many elective bodies on Jerusem,
and they are voted into authority from time to time by three orders of
citizenship -- the Material Sons and Daughters, the seraphim and their
associates, including midway creatures, and the ascending mortals. To receive
nomination for representative honor a candidate must have gained requisite
recognition from the Melchizedek schools of administration.
45:7.6 Suffrage is universal on Jerusem among these
three groups of citizenship, but the vote is differentially cast in accordance
with the recognized and duly registered personal possession of mota --
morontia wisdom. The vote cast at a Jerusem election by any one personality
has a value ranging from one up to one thousand. Jerusem citizens are thus
classified in accordance with their mota achievement.
45:7.7 From time to time Jerusem citizens present
themselves to the Melchizedek examiners, who certify to their attainment of
morontia wisdom. Then they go before the examining corps of the Brilliant
Evening Stars or their designates, who ascertain the degree of spirit insight.
Next they appear in the presence of the four and twenty counselors and their
associates, who pass upon their status of experiential attainment of
socialization. These three factors are then carried to the citizenship
registrars of representative government, who quickly compute the mota status
and assign suffrage qualifications in accordance therewith.
45:7.8 Under the supervision of the Melchizedeks the
ascending mortals, especially those who are tardy in their personality
unification on the new morontia levels, are taken in hand by the Material Sons
and are given intensive training designed to rectify such deficiencies. No
ascending mortal leaves the system headquarters for the more extensive and
varied socialization career of the constellation until these Material Sons
certify to the achievement of mota personality -- an individuality combining
the completed mortal existence in experiential association with the budding
morontia career, both being duly blended by the spiritual overcontrol of the
45:7.9 Presented by
a Melchizedek of temporary assignment on Urantia.
