Some of the variable stars, in or near the state of maximum pulsation, are in process of giving origin to subsidiary systems, many of which will eventually be much like our own sun and its [More]
The larger suns maintain such a gravity control over their electrons that light escapes only with the aid of the powerful X—rays.  These helper rays penetrate all space and are concerned in the maintenance of [More]
In those suns which are encircuited in the space—energy channels, solar energy is liberated by various complex nuclear—reaction chains, the most common of which is the hydrogen—carbon—helium reaction.  In this metamorphosis, carbon acts as an [More]
The internal temperature of many of the suns, even our own, is much higher than is commonly believed.  In the interior of a sun practically no whole atoms exist; they are all more or less [More]
In deciphering spectral phenomena, it should be remembered that space is not empty; that light, in traversing space, is sometimes slightly modified by the various forms of energy and matter which circulate in all organized [More]
That the suns of space are not very dense is proved by the steady streams of escaping light—energies.  Too great a density would retain light by opacity until the light—energy pressure reached the explosion point.  [More]
The mass of our sun is slightly greater than the estimate of our physicists, who have reckoned it as about two octillion (2 x 10 to the 27th power) tons.  It now exists about halfway [More]
     With the advancing evolution of an inhabited planet and the further spiritualization of its inhabitants, additional spiritual influences may be received by such mature personalities.  As mortals progress in mind control and spirit perception, [More]
    The headquarters spheres of the superuniverses are so constructed that they are able to function as efficient power—energy regulators for their various sectors, serving as focal points for the directionization of energy to their [More]
     Irrespective of origin, the various spheres of space are classifiable into the following major divisions: The suns — the stars of space. The dark islands of space. Minor space bodies —- comets, meteors, and [More]
     The bulk of the mass contained in the suns and planets of a superuniverse originates in the nebular wheels; very little of superuniverse mass is organized by the direct action of the power directors [More]
     In the evaluation and recognition of mind it should be remembered that the universe is neither mechanical nor magical; it is a creation of mind and a mechanism of law.  But while in practical [More]
     Light, heat, electricity, magnetism, chemism, energy, and matter are — in origin, nature, and destiny — one and the same thing, together with other material realities as yet undiscovered on our planet Urantia.       [More]
     Religion is not alone dogmatic; natural philosophy equally tends to dogmatize.  When a renowned religious teacher reasoned that the number seven was fundamental to nature because there are seven openings in the human head, [More]
     While gravity is one of several factors concerned in holding together a tiny atomic energy system, there is also present in and among these basic physical units a powerful and unknown energy, the secret [More]
