Sangik races and the Color wheel...

Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed the Sangik races follow the color wheel scheme (primary, secondary and tertiary)?

49:4.2 There are six basic evolutionary races: three primary -- red, yellow, and blue; and

three secondary -- orange, green, and indigo. Most inhabited worlds have all of these

races, but many of the three-brained planets harbor only the three primary types. Some

local systems also have only these three races.

It is interesting the celestials substituted violet w/indigo. In fact, indigo is a tertiary color. Not sure why they made that change.

And they used "violet" for the Material Son and Daughter......I wonder if that is universal? It could just be the "reserved" color-name for the uplifters? Nice graphic. And then there is the original or Andonic. Is Andon and Fonta the names of all "first" humans? If so, then all planets have Andonites as the original "race"? Glad to hear your "voice" again BB!! :D

Thanks! foV. Unfortunately, my current time budget limits my online use. But I try to take a quick glance every chance I get to read up on new topics and understandings.

Another thing that caught my attention, and made me recall boom's explanation of the term "white" as employed in the text, is the behavior of white light as it passes through a prism. Notice the colors refracted from the white light produce the exact colors of the Sangik races. So if indeed there is an analogy being drawn by the celestials in the race narrative or they are using light phenomenon to symbolize the creation of the original colored races, I wonder why the Adamites are not described as White, in addition to what I raised in the previous post. Perhaps what boom noted has some relevancy to this. Hmmm...

A neat connection to make is if you notice that each race had its own name for god. If you match up the colors and the name each race gives god you will see how each color corresponds to a master spirit.

I noticed that besides some other correspondences based on -- I really don't want use this word as it is so taboo but here I go -- NUMEROLOGY. I think it is called the "Law of Seven."

That image of the three interconnected circles/spheres like that in my mind a lot lately - although with regard to another topic ;)

 

 

 

Here, they seem to me to be using a blend of both the "color wheel" model and the frequency continuum of the "light" model when they talk about those races.

 

I say a blend because they're not going exactly according to either. After all, according to the light model, indigo is right under violet - and above blue - while red is the lowest frequency color. Notice how that doesn't match up with the UB explanations for the continuum ranking each of the so-call "colored races" with regard to spiritual endowment and relative evolutionary status (from "backwardness"/regressive - to forwardness/progressive).

Yes it does appear that they are using both models.

What is interesting about our planet is the Nodite race. This race really is the 8th race. They came from the base race which got upstepped through some technique similar to how radiation affects biological life and to the astonishment of the administrators of our planet this upstepped race was almost on par with Adam and Eve. Its almost as though they circumvented the entire Sangik race and upstepping process of Adam and Eve. What is also kind of interesting is that we all have this Andite ancestory within us, so that potential for upsetting may not be as difficult as we think.

 

The authors kind of hint in the papers about the way in which this race came to be is completely unusual for a base race to be upstepped so perfectly in the manner they did. Hence we are a expiremental world.

On the other end of the scale you may note the following work from Newton in 1704 which has a interesting corralation with the colors for the races as posted in the UB. Not to mention that the UB also mentions that music is the universal language. Note the diagram in the following URL.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visible_spectrum

 

583px-Newton%27s_color_circle.png

 

Newton's color circle, from Opticks of 1704, showing the colors correlated with musical notes. The spectral colors from red to violet are divided by the notes of the musical scale, starting at D. The circle completes a full octave, from D to D. Newton's circle places red, at one end of the spectrum, next to violet, at the other. This reflects the fact that non-spectral purple colors are observed when red and violet light are mixed.

 

The following explains Newton's work on this subject.

I am going to go on a tangent here. There is a passage in the book that mentions if two races come together, and the minority race is unwilling to serve the other that unwilling minority race is essentially screwed. There is also a passage in the book that mentions that our planetary admin consider plans to keep important racial strands going. The American Red race IMO could be considered an important racial strand that our planetary admin don't want to go away. Anyway it was looking like the red race was unwilling to serve the white man and than all of a sudden all of these Native casinos starting popping up. Haha and what I find funny about this situation is that its sort of that supremacy the red race would have had that the author tells us usually happens on most planets with the red race enslaving the other races. It's basically just the red man taking the white mans money. Lol. I wonder if these Casinos serve a purpose of helping this red race "serve" man in a way they were built for haha.

I remember reading that reference but dont recall where it is located.

51:4.6 The more backward humans are usually employed as laborers by the more progressive races. This accounts for the origin of slavery on the planets during the early ages. The orange men are usually subdued by the red and reduced to the status of servants - sometimes exterminated. The yellow and red men often fraternize, but not always. The yellow race usually enslaves the green, while the blue man subdues the indigo. These races of primitive men think no more of utilizing the services of their backward fellows in compulsory labor than Urantians would of buying and selling horses and cattle.

 

They're talking about very primitive people here, prior to being upstepped. Although, I'm sad to say that this planet is still inhabited by some rather primitive and poorly upstepped types.

 

Or, perhaps you're thinking of this quote about enslaving those who refuse to accept the conqueror's religion:

 

69:8.2 Not long ago enslavement was the lot of those military captives who refused to accept the conqueror's religion. In earlier times captives were either eaten, tortured to death, set to fighting each other, sacrificed to spirits, or enslaved. Slavery was a great advancement over massacre and cannibalism.

 

I don't know of any quote stating that planetary administration is undertaking any measures to keep certain racial strains going, but I do know that they are doing what they can to keep certain spiritual types going, which is not the same thing.

 

110:4.6 This is an alarming picture, and the supervising personalities of Satania look with favor upon the proposals of some of your more immediate planetary supervisors who advocate the inauguration of measures designed to foster and conserve the higher spiritual types of the Urantia races.

Yeap this one of the quotes I was thinking of, thanks for the clarification.

I will look for the other quote this weekend :).
