Welcome to the four Outer Space Rings!
				<br />The Grand Universe is surrounded by the ancestors of a series of starry and planetary clusters which completely encircle the present inhabited creation as concentric rings of outer universes upon universes.
				<br><br>Our telescopes reveal millions upon millions of physical universes forming. Most of these starry realms are in Orvonton, but the larger telescopes penetrate far beyong the borders of the Grand Universe into the domains of Outer Space, where untold unviverses are in the process of organization.
				
				This is the world of your origin. 
			
				<ul>
					<li><p>2,500,000,000 years ago Urantia was one tenth its present size.</p></li>
					<li><p>1,000,000,000 years ago is the date of the actual beginning of Urantia history, and about this time it was given its name, URANTIA.</p></li>
					<li><p>550,000,000 years ago life was initiated on Urantia by The Life Carriers.</p></li>
					<li><p>450,000,000 years ago the transition from vegetable to animal life occurred.</p></li>
					<li><p>Urantia is the 606th out of 617* inhabited planets in the planetary group, or local system, of Satania.</p></li>			
				</ul>
		
				<p>A completed local system encompassas 1000 inhabited worlds. *Our system, being a relatively newer one, is incomplete.</p> 
				
				Monmatia is the name of your sun's planetary family, the solar system to which your world belongs.
				<ul>
					<li><p>5 trillion years ago the sun was a comparatively isolated blazing orb, having gathered to itself most of the near-by circulating matter of space, remnants of the recent upheaval which attended its own birth.</p></li>
					<li><p>4,500,000,000 years ago a great column of solar gases arose during the collision with the near-by Angona system, which separated from the sun and evolved into the 12 planets.</p></li>
					<li><p>3,500,000,000 years ago Jupiter, Saturn and the other ten planets were well formed. This age may be regarded as the era of planetary assembly.</p></li>
					<li><p>3,000,000,000  years ago the solar system was functioning much as it does today and about this time our solar system was placed on the registry of Nebadon and givin its name, Monmatia.</p></li>
				</ul>
				<p>Monmatia is one of over 500 inhabited physical systems in the local system of Satania.</p>
				
				Satania is not a uniform physical system, a single astronomic unit or organization. 
				<ul>
					<li><p>Satania is composed of over 7,000 astronomical groups, or physical systems.</p></li>
					<li><p>Its 619 inhabited worlds are located in over 500 different physical systems.</p></li>
					<li><p>Only 5 have more than 2 inhabited worlds, and of these only 1 has 4 peopled planets, while there are 46 having 2 inhabited worlds.</p></li>
				</ul>
				<p>Satania is local system number 24 out of 100 in the constellation of Norlatiedek.</p>
				
				Our constellation, Norlatiadek, consists of 100 systems and is number 70 in the universe of Nebadon.<br>
				Constellations being the primary divisions of a local universe, their rulers link the local systems of inhabited worlds to the central administration of the local universe on Salvington.  
				
				The local universe of Nebadon consists of 100 constellations and has a capital known as Salvington. 
				<ul>
					<li><p>About 400,000,000,000 years ago Michael of Nebadon, a Creator Son of Paradise, selected the Andronover nebula as the site of his adventure in universe building.</p></li>
					<li><p>It took almost 1 million years to complete the architectural worlds of Salvington and the 100 constellation headquarters groups of planets.</p></li>
					<li><p>After the universe and constellation headquarters worlds were completed work began on the local system headquarters planets, completed about 5 billion years ago.</p></li>
					<li><p>At last registry there were 3,840,101 inhabited planets in Nebadon, with 10 million in prospect.</p></li>
					<li><p>The Nebadon day is equal to 18 days and 6 hours of Urantia time, plus 2.5 minutes. The Nebadon year is about 5 years of Urantia time.</p></li>
				</ul>
				<p>Nebadon is number 84 in the minor sector of Ensa.</p>
				
				The minor sector of Ensa consists of 100 local universes and it has a wonderful headquarters world, where from its rulers, three Recents of Days, administer the affairs of a minor sector.
				<br><br>The rotational center of Ensa is situated far away in the enormous and dense star cloud called Sagittarius, around which Nebadon and its associated creations all move.
				<br><br>This minor sector is number 3 in the major sector of Splandon.
				
				Spandon consists of 100 minor sectors and has a headquarters world called Umajor the fifth. Each major sector is provided with a superb headquarters and is presided over by three Perfections of Days, Supreme Trinity Personalities.
				<br><br>The Perfections of Days preside over the major sectors of each superuniverse. They rule as the immediate and personal vicegerents of the Ancients of Days. The work of these major sector governments has cheifly to do with the intellectual status of a far-flung creation. The personnel of a major sector government is no different from that of the superuniverse.
				<br><br>Splandon is the fifth major sector of the superuniverse of Orvonton.
				
				10 major sectors constitute a superuniverse. Each superuniverse is provided with an enormous and glorious headquarters world and is ruled by three Ancients of Days.
				<ul>
					<li><p>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.</p></li>
					<li><p>Orvonton is illuminated and warmed by more than 10 trillion blazing suns!</p></li>
					<li><p>All sectors and divisions of Orvonton are in rotation around the headquarters world of Uversa.</p></li>
					<li><p>The standard day of Orvonton is equal to almost 30 days of Urantia time. The Orvonton year equals one hundred standard days.</p></li>
					<li><p>In Orvonton there are 100 octaves of wave energy, and of these, 64 are wholly or partially recognized on Urantia.</p></li>
				</ul>
				<p>The foundation of the universe is material, but the essence of life is spirit. As Orvonton is unique in nature and individual in destiny, so also is each of its six associated superuniverses. The seven purposes of superuniverse evolution are operative throughout all seven superuniverses, but each supercreation will give fullest expression to only one of these purposes.
				</p>
				
				Seven superuniverses make up the present organized grand universe, consistion of approximately 7 trillion inhabitable worlds plus the architectural spheres and the 1 billion inhabited spheres of Havona.
				<ul>
					<li><p>The seven superuniverses cycle around Paradise and Havona in a counterclockwise procession called the superuniverse space level.</p></li> 
					<li><p>The seven superuniverses are finite, evolutionary, and consistently progressive.</p></li>
					<li><p>The only creation that is perfectly settled is Havona, the central universe.</p></li>
					<li><p>The Central Universe is not a time creation; it is an eternal existence.</p></li>
				</ul>
				<p>At the center of Havona is the stationary and absolutely stabilized and perfect Isle of Paradise, surrounded by its 21 perfect satellites.</p>
				
				The perfect and divine universe occupies the center of all creation; it is the eternal core around which the vast creations of time and space revolve.
				<br>Havona is of enormous dimensions and almost unbelievable mass and consists of 1 billion spheres of unimagined beauty and superb grandeur. Havona is a spiritually perfect and physically stable universe. 
				<br>Paradise is the eternal center of the universe of universes and abiding place of the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, the Inifinite Spirit, and their divine co-ordinates and associates.
				<br>The central universe whirls around the stationary Isle of Paradise in one vast plane, consisting of the 10 concentric stabilized units -- the 3 circuts of Paradise spheres and the 7 circuts of Havona worlds.
				<br>Here may be observed the height of the ideals of true self-government.
				
				Paradise is the eternal center of the universe of universes and the abiding place of God. This central isle is the most gigantic organized body of cosmic reality in all the master universe. Paradise is a material sphere as well as a spiritual abode. All of the intelligent creation of The Universal Father is dominciled on material abodes; hence must the absolute controlling center also be material, literal. And again it should be reiterated that spirit things and spiritual beings are real.
