I was created and the level of reality I function in is finite and will remain finite all the way to the Supreme.
Agreed. Now, think how we shift the seat of our identity to our soul [P.112, sec. 2.20, 5.4, 6.9].
The time spent choosing and struggling in the flesh serves as gestation that allows this "birth" of
our personality to a new location for expression. Think of the issues Nicodemus had with this. Now
think of the superuniverse gestation that allows us to be born from space and time
, as Finaliters.
"Entirely different from all of these is the deep sleep of metamorphosis, [...]"
"; thereby do the creatures of time and space traverse the innermost margins
of the temporal and the spatial to attain residential status in the timeless and
spaceless abodes of Paradise."
"[...] And as you there spiritually repersonalize, [...] "
I was simply trying to round out this story by suggesting that our master universe career,
spent collaborating with the Supreme, will be an absonite adventure, a gestation sufficient
to allow our 7th personal dimension to subinfinitely penetrate the absolute. That's all
"The type of personality bestowed upon Urantia mortals has a potentiality of seven
dimensions of self-expression or person-realization. These dimensional phenomena
are realizable as three on the finite level, three on the absonite level, and one on the
absolute level. On subabsolute levels this seventh or totality dimension is experiencible
as the fact of personality. This supreme dimension is an associable absolute and, while
not infinite, is dimensionally potential for subinfinite penetration of the absolute."
It's just a shift of point of view. What may to us seem like an age of education and
struggle and achievement, may look different to our Father:
"AS FAR as the Universal Father is concerned -- as a Father -- the universes are
virtually nonexistent; he deals with personalities; he is the Father of personalities."
I see our Father (like expectant human dads waiting for the birth of their child) full of
expectation as He waits for His Michael Sons to complete their mission. What I am
suggesting is that the job's not done till we have entered (subinfinitely penetrated)
their Father's house. Until then, we are... fostered and sponsored, but not really able
to participate in the purposes of eternity; until then we are not quite "adult" persons,
with whom our Father can have a non-trivial conversation.
PS: notice I put that absonite zipper analogy in the mouth of a "Solitary Messenger".
Recall how this class of personal being serves the finite
in an unusual way:
Solitary Messengers are the only available type of spirit intelligence--aside, possibly,
from the Inspired Trinity Spirits--that can be dispatched from the headquarters of one
superuniverse directly to the headquarters of another. All other personalities must
make such excursions by way of Havona and the executive worlds of the Master Spirits.
As an astrophysicist, this separation of the superuniverses has always intrigued
