Paper 29 : The Universeˆ Powerˆˆ Directorsˆ
29:0.1 OF ALL the universeˆ personalities concerned in the regulation of interplanetary and interuniverse affairs, the powerˆ directors and their associates have been the least understood on Urantiaˆ. While your races have long known of the existence of angelsˆ and similar orders of celestialˆ beings, little information concerning the controllers and regulators of the physical domain has ever been imparted. Even now I am permitted fully to disclose only the last of the following three groups of living beings having to do with forceˆ control and energyˆ regulation in the master universe:
29:0.2 1. Primary Eventuated Master Forceˆ Organizersˆ.
29:0.3 2. Associate Transcendentalˆ Master Forceˆ Organizersˆ.
29:0.4 3. Universeˆ Powerˆˆ Directorsˆ.
29:0.5 Though I deem it impossible to portray the individuality of the various groups of directors, centers, and controllers of universeˆ powerˆˆ, I hope to be able to explain something about the domain of their activities. They are a unique group of living beings having to do with the intelligent regulation of energyˆ throughout the grand universeˆˆ. Including the supremeˆ directors, they embrace the following major divisions:
29:0.6 1. The Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ.
29:0.7 2. The Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ.
29:0.8 3. The Master Physical Controllersˆ.
29:0.9 4. The Morontiaˆ Powerˆ Supervisorsˆ.
29:0.10 The Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directors and Centers have existed from the near times of eternityˆ, and as far as we know, no more beings of these orders have been created. The Seven Supremeˆ Directors were personalized by the Seven Master Spiritsˆ, and then they collaborated with their parents in the production of more than ten billion associates. Before the days of the powerˆ directors the energyˆ circuitsˆ of spaceˆ outside of the central universeˆˆ were under the intelligent supervision of the Master Forceˆ Organizers of Paradiseˆ.
29:0.11 Having knowledge about material creatures, you have at least a contrastive conception of spiritˆual beings; but it is very difficult for the mortalˆ mindˆ to envisage the powerˆ directors. In the scheme of ascendantˆ progression to higher levels of existence you have nothing directly to do with either the supremeˆ directors or the powerˆ centers. On certain rare occasions you will have dealings with the physical controllers, and you will work freely with the supervisors of morontiaˆ powerˆ upon reaching the mansion worldsˆ. These Morontiaˆ Powerˆ Supervisorsˆ function so exclusively in the morontiaˆ regime of the local creations that it is deemed best to narrate their activities in the section dealing with the local universeˆˆ.
1. The Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ
29:1.1 The Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ are the physical-energy regulators of the grand universeˆˆ. Their creation by the Seven Master Spiritsˆ is the first recorded instance of the derivation of semimaterial progeny from true spiritˆ ancestry. When the Seven Master Spiritsˆ create individually, they bring forth highly spiritˆual personalities on the angelˆic order; when they create collectively, they sometimes produce these high types of semimaterial beings. But even these quasi-physical beings would be invisible to the short-range vision of Urantiaˆ mortalsˆ.
29:1.2 The Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directors are seven in number, and they are identical in appearance and function. One cannot be distinguished from another except by that Master Spiritˆ with whom each is in immediate association, and to whom each is in complete functional subservience. Each of the Master Spiritsˆ is thus in eternalˆ union with one of their collective offspring. The same director is always in association with the same Spiritˆ, and their working partnership results in a unique association of physical and spiritˆual energies, of a semiphysical being and a spiritˆ personalityˆ.
29:1.3 The Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ are stationed on peripheral Paradiseˆ, where their slowly circulating presences indicate the whereabouts of the forceˆ-focalˆ headquarters of the Master Spiritsˆ. These powerˆ directors function singly in the powerˆ-energy regulation of the superuniversesˆ but collectively in the administration of the central creation. They operate from Paradiseˆ but maintain themselves as effective powerˆ centers in all divisions of the grand universeˆˆ.
29:1.4 These mighty beings are the physical ancestors of the vast host of the powerˆ centers and, through them, of the physical controllers scattered throughout the seven superuniversesˆ. Such subordinate physical-control organisms are basically uniform, identical except for the differential toning of each superuniverseˆ corps. In order to change in superuniverseˆ service, they would merely have to return to Paradiseˆ for retoning. The physical creation is fundamentally uniform in administration.
2. The Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ
29:2.1 The Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ are not able, individually, to reproduce themselves, but collectively, and in association with the Seven Master Spiritsˆ, they can and do reproduce — create — other beings like themselves. Such is the origin of the Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ of the grand universeˆˆ, who function in the following seven groups:
29:2.2 1. Supremeˆ Center Supervisorsˆ.
29:2.3 2. Havonaˆ Centersˆ.
29:2.4 3. Superuniverseˆ Centersˆ.
29:2.5 4. Local Universeˆˆ Centersˆ.
29:2.6 5. Constellationˆ Centersˆ.
29:2.7 6. System Centersˆ.
29:2.8 7. Unclassified Centersˆ.
29:2.9 These powerˆ centers together with the Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directors are beings of high will freedom and action. They are all endowed with Third-Source personalityˆ and disclose unquestioned volitionalˆ capacity of a high order. These directing centers of the universeˆ powerˆˆ system are the possessors of exquisite intelligence endowment; they are the intellect of the powerˆ system of the grand universeˆˆ and the secret of the technique of the mindˆ control of all the vast network of the far-flung functions of the Master Physical Controllersˆ and the Morontiaˆ Powerˆ Supervisorsˆ.
29:2.10 1. Supremeˆ Center Supervisorsˆ. These seven co-ordinates and associates of the Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directors are the regulators of the master energyˆ circuitsˆ of the grand universeˆˆ. Each center supervisor is headquartered on one of the special worlds of the Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ, and they work in close association with these co-ordinators of general universeˆ affairs.
29:2.11 The Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directors and the Supremeˆ Center Supervisorsˆ function both as individuals and conjointly with regard to all cosmic phenomena below the levels of “gravityˆ energyˆ.” When acting in liaison, these fourteen beings are to universeˆ powerˆˆ what the Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ are to general universeˆ affairs, and what the Seven Master Spiritsˆ are to the cosmic mindˆ.
29:2.12 2. Havonaˆ Centersˆ. Before the creation of the universesˆ of time and spaceˆ, powerˆ centers were not required in Havonaˆ, but ever since these far-distant times, one million have functioned in the central creation, each center having the supervision of a thousand Havonaˆ worlds. Here in the divineˆ universeˆ there is perfectˆion of energyˆ control, a condition not existing elsewhere. Perfectˆion of energyˆ regulation is the ultimateˆ goal of all the powerˆ centers and the physical controllers of spaceˆ.
29:2.13 3. Superuniverseˆ Centersˆ. Occupying an enormous area on the capital sphere of each of the seven superuniversesˆ are one thousand powerˆ centers of the third order. Three currents of primary energyˆ of ten segregations each come in to these powerˆ centers, but seven specialized and well-directed, though imperfectly controlled, circuitsˆ of powerˆ go forth from their seat of united action. This is the electronˆic organization of universeˆ powerˆˆ.
29:2.14 All energyˆ is circuited in the Paradiseˆ cycle, but the Universeˆ Powerˆˆ Directorsˆ direct the forceˆ-energies of nether Paradiseˆ as they find them modified in the spaceˆ functions of the central and superuniversesˆ, converting and directing these energies into channels of useful and constructive application. There is a difference between Havonaˆ energyˆ and the energies of the superuniversesˆ. The powerˆ charge of a superuniverseˆ consists of three phases of energyˆ of ten segregations each. This threefoldˆ energyˆ charge spreads throughout the spaceˆ of the grand universeˆˆ; it is like a vast moving ocean of energyˆ which engulfs and bathes the whole of each of the seven supercreations.
29:2.15 The electronˆic organization of universeˆ powerˆˆ functions in seven phases and discloses varying response to local or linear gravityˆˆ. This sevenfoldˆ circuitˆ proceeds from the superuniverseˆ powerˆ centers and pervades each supercreation. Such specialized currents of time and spaceˆ are definite and localized energyˆ movements initiated and directed for specific purposes, much as the Gulf Stream functions as a circumscribed phenomenon in the midst of the Atlantic Ocean.
29:2.16 4. Local Universeˆˆ Centersˆ. On the headquarters of each local universeˆˆ are stationed one hundred powerˆ centers of the fourth order. They function to downstep and otherwise to modify the seven powerˆ circuitsˆ emanating from superuniverseˆ headquarters, thus making them applicable to the services of the constellationsˆ and systems. The local astronomical catastrophes of spaceˆ are of passing concern to these powerˆ centers; they are engaged in the orderly dispatch of effective energyˆ to the subsidiary constellationsˆ and systems. They are of great assistance to the Creatorˆ Sonsˆ during the later times of universeˆ organization and energyˆ mobilization. These centers are able to provide intensified lanes of energyˆ useful for interplanetary communication between important inhabited points. Such a lane or line of energyˆ, sometimes also called an energyˆ path, is a direct circuitˆ of energyˆ from one powerˆ center to another powerˆ center or from one physical controller to another controller. It is an individualized stream of powerˆ and stands in contrast to the free spaceˆ movements of undifferentiated energyˆ.
29:2.17 5. Constellationˆ Centersˆ. Ten of these living powerˆ centers are stationed in each constellationˆ, functioning as energyˆ projectors to the one hundred tributary local systemsˆ. From these beings there go forth the powerˆ lines for communication and transport and for the energizing of those living creatures who are dependent upon certain forms of physical energyˆˆ for the maintenance of life. But neither the powerˆ centers nor the subordinate physical controllers are otherwise concerned with life as a functional organization.
29:2.18 6. System Centersˆ. One Supremeˆ Powerˆ Center is permanently assigned to each local systemˆ. These system centersˆ dispatch the powerˆ circuitsˆ to the inhabited worlds of time and spaceˆ. They co-ordinate the activities of the subordinate physical controllers and otherwise function to insure the satisfactory distribution of powerˆ in the local systemˆ. The circuitˆ relay between the planets depends upon the perfectˆ co-ordination of certain material energies and upon the efficient regulation of physical powerˆ.
29:2.19 7. Unclassified Centersˆ. These are the centers who function in special local situations but not on the inhabited planets. The individual worlds are in the charge of Master Physical Controllersˆ and receive the encircuited lines of powerˆ dispatched by the powerˆ center of their system. Only those spheres of the most extraordinary energyˆ relationships have powerˆ centers of the seventh order acting as universeˆ balance wheels or energyˆ governors. In every phase of activity these powerˆ centers are the full equals of those who function on the higher units of control, but not one spaceˆ body in a million harbors such a living powerˆ organization.
3. The Domain of Powerˆ Centers
29:3.1 The Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ distributed throughout the superuniversesˆ number, with their associates and subordinates, upward of ten billion. And they are all in perfectˆ synchrony and complete liaison with their Paradiseˆ progenitors, the Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ. The powerˆ control of the grand universeˆˆ is thus intrusted to the keeping and direction of the Seven Master Spiritsˆ, the creatorsˆ of the Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ.
29:3.2 The Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directors and all their associates, assistants, and subordinates are forever exempt from apprehension or interference by all the tribunals of all spaceˆ; neither are they subject to the administrative direction either of the superuniverseˆ government of the Ancients of Daysˆ or of the local universeˆˆ administration of the Creatorˆ Sonsˆ.
29:3.3 These powerˆ centers and directors are brought into being by the children of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ. They are not germane to the administration of the Sons of Godˆ, though they affiliate with the Creatorˆ Sonsˆ during the later epochsˆ of universeˆ material organization. But the powerˆ centers are in some way closely associated with the cosmic overcontrol of the Supremeˆ Beingˆ.
29:3.4 Powerˆ centers and physical controllers undergo no training; they are all created in perfectˆion and are inherently perfectˆ in action. Never do they pass from one function to another; always do they serve as originally assigned. There is no evolution in their ranks, and this is true of all seven divisions of both orders.
29:3.5 Having no ascendantˆ past to revert to in memory, powerˆ centers and physical controllers never play; they are thoroughly businesslike in all their actions. They are always on duty; there is no provision in the universal scheme for the interruption of the physical lines of energyˆ; never for a fraction of a second can these beings relinquish their direct supervision of the energyˆ circuitsˆ of time and spaceˆ.
29:3.6 The directors, centers, and controllers of powerˆ have nothing to do with anything in all creation except powerˆ, material or semiphysical energyˆ; they do not originate it, but they do modify, manipulate, and directionize it. Neither do they have anything whatever to do with physical gravityˆˆ except to resist its drawing powerˆ. Their relation to gravityˆ is wholly negative.
29:3.7 The powerˆ centers utilize vast mechanisms and co-ordinations of a material order in liaison with the living mechanisms of the various segregated energyˆ concentrations. Each individual powerˆ center is constituted in exactly one million units of functional control, and these energyˆ-modifying units are not stationary as are the vital organs of man’s physical body; these “vital organs” of powerˆ regulation are mobile and truly kaleidoscopic in associative possibilities.
29:3.8 It is utterly beyond my ability to explain the manner in which these living beings encompass the manipulation and regulation of the master circuitsˆ of universeˆ energyˆ. To undertake to inform you further concerning the size and function of these gigantic and almost perfectlˆy efficient powerˆ centers, would only add to your confusion and consternation. They are both living and “personal,” but they are beyond your comprehension.
29:3.9 Outside of Havonaˆ the Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ function only on especially constructed (architectural) spheres or on otherwise suitably constituted spaceˆ bodies. The architectural worlds are so constructed that the living powerˆ centers can act as selective switches to directionize, modify, and concentrate the energies of spaceˆ as they pour over these spheres. They could not so function on an ordinary evolutionaryˆ sun or planet. Certain groups are also concerned in the heating and other material necessities of these special headquarters worlds. And though it is beyond the scope of Urantiaˆ knowledge, I may state that these orders of living powerˆ personalities have much to do with the distribution of the light that shines without heat. They do not produce this phenomenon, but they are concerned with its dissemination and directionization.
29:3.10 The powerˆ centers and their subordinate controllers are assigned to the working of all of the physical energies of organized spaceˆ. They work with the three basic currents of ten energies each. That is the energyˆ charge of organized spaceˆ; and organized spaceˆ is their domain. The Universeˆ Powerˆˆ Directorsˆ have nothing whatever to do with those tremendous actions of forceˆ which are now taking place outside the present boundaries of the seven superuniversesˆ.
29:3.11 The powerˆ centers and controllers exert perfectˆ control over only seven of the ten forms of energyˆ contained in each basic universeˆ current; those forms which are partly or wholly exempt from their control must represent the unpredictable realms of energyˆ manifestation dominated by the Unqualified Absoluteˆˆ. If they exert an influence upon the primordialˆ forcesˆ of this Absoluteˆ, we are not cognizant of such functions, though there is some slight evidence which would warrant the opinion that certain of the physical controllers are sometimes automatically reactive to certain impulses of the Universal Absoluteˆˆ.
29:3.12 These living powerˆ mechanisms are not consciously related to the master universeˆˆ energyˆ overcontrol of the Unqualified Absoluteˆˆ, but we surmise that their entire and almost perfectˆ scheme of powerˆ direction is in some unknown manner subordinated to this supergravity presence. In any local energyˆ situation the centers and controllers exert near-supremacy, but they are always conscious of the superenergyˆ presence and the unrecognizable performance of the Unqualified Absoluteˆˆ.
4. The Master Physical Controllersˆ
29:4.1 These beings are the mobile subordinates of the Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ. The physical controllers are endowed with capabilities of individuality metamorphosis of such a nature that they can engage in a remarkable variety of autotransport, being able to traverse local spaceˆ at velocities approaching the flight of Solitary Messengersˆ. But like all other spaceˆ traversers they require the assistance of both their fellows and certain other types of beings in overcoming the action of gravityˆ and the resistance of inertia in departing from a material sphere.
29:4.2 The Master Physical Controllersˆ serve throughout the grand universeˆˆ. They are directly governed from Paradiseˆ by the Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ as far as the headquarters of the superuniverses; from here they are directed and distributed by the Council of Equilibrium, the high commissionersˆ of powerˆ dispatched by the Seven Master Spiritsˆ from the personnel of the Associate Master Forceˆ Organizers. These high commissionersˆ are empowered to interpret the readings and registrations of the master frandalanksˆ, those living instruments which indicate the powerˆ pressure and the energyˆ charge of an entire superuniverseˆ.
29:4.3 While the presence of the Paradiseˆ Deitiesˆ encircles the grand universeˆˆ and sweeps around the circle of eternityˆˆ, the influence of any one of the Seven Master Spiritsˆ is limited to a single superuniverseˆ. There is a distinct segregation of energyˆ and a separation of the circuitsˆ of powerˆ between each of the seven supercreations; hence individualized control methods must and do prevail.
29:4.4 The Master Physical Controllersˆ are the direct offspring of the Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ, and their numbers include the following:
29:4.5 1. Associate Powerˆ Directorsˆ.
29:4.6 2. Mechanical Controllersˆ.
29:4.7 3. Energyˆ Transformersˆ.
29:4.8 4. Energyˆ Transmittersˆ.
29:4.9 5. Primary Associatorsˆˆ.
29:4.10 6. Secondary Dissociatorsˆˆ.
29:4.11 7. The Frandalanksˆ and Chronoldeksˆ.
29:4.12 Not all of these orders are persons in the sense of possessing individual powersˆ of choice. Especially do the last four seem to be wholly automatic and mechanical in response to the impulses of their superiors and in reaction to existing energyˆ conditions. But though such response appears wholly mechanistic, it is not; they may seem to be automatons, but all of them disclose the differential function of intelligence.
29:4.13 Personalityˆ is not necessarily a concomitant of mindˆ. Mindˆ can think even when deprived of all powerˆ of choice, as in numerous of the lower types of animals and in certain of these subordinate physical controllers. Many of these more automatic regulators of physical powerˆ are not persons in any sense of the term. They are not endowed with will and independence of decision, being wholly subservient to the mechanical perfectˆion of design for the tasks of their allotment. Nonetheless all of them are highly intelligent beings.
29:4.14 The physical controllers are chiefly occupied in the adjustment of basic energies undiscovered on Urantiaˆ. These unknown energies are very essential to the interplanetary system of transport and to certain techniques of communication. When we lay lines of energyˆ for the purpose of conveying sound equivalents or of extending vision, these undiscovered forms of energyˆ are utilized by the living physical controllers and their associates. These same energies are also, on occasion, used by the midway creatures in their routine work.
29:4.15 1. Associate Powerˆ Directorsˆ. These marvelously efficient beings are intrusted with the assignment and dispatch of all orders of the Master Physical Controllersˆ in accordance with the ever-shifting needs of the constantly changˆing energyˆ status of the realms. The vast reserves of the physical controllers are maintained on the headquarters worlds of the minor sectorsˆ, and from these concentration points they are periodically dispatched by the associate powerˆ directorsˆ to the headquarters of the universesˆ, constellationsˆ, and systems, and to the individual planets. When thus assigned, the physical controllers are provisionally subject to the orders of the divineˆ executioners of the conciliating commissions but are otherwise solely amenable to their associate directors and to the Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ.
29:4.16 Three million associate powerˆ directorsˆ are assigned to each of the Orvontonˆ minor sectorsˆ, making a total of three billion as the superuniverseˆ quota of these amazingly versatile beings. Their own reserves are maintained on these same minor sectorˆ worlds, where they also serve as instructors of all who study the sciences of the techniques of intelligent energyˆ control and transmutation.
29:4.17 These directors alternate periods of executive service in the minor sectorsˆ with equal periods of inspection service to the realms of spaceˆ. At least one acting inspector is always present in each local systemˆ, maintaining headquarters on its capital sphere. They keep the whole vast living energyˆ aggregation in harmonious synchrony.
29:4.18 2. Mechanical Controllersˆ. These are the exceedingly versatile and mobile assistants of the associate powerˆ directorsˆ. Trillions upon trillions of them are commissioned in Ensaˆ, your minor sectorˆ. These beings are called mechanical controllersˆ because they are so completely dominated by their superiors, so fully subservient to the will of the associate powerˆ directorsˆ. Nevertheless they are, themselves, very intelligent, and their work, though mechanical and matter-of-fact in nature, is skillfully performed.
29:4.19 Of all the Master Physical Controllersˆ assigned to the inhabited worlds, the mechanical controllersˆ are by far the most powerful. Possessing the living endowment of antigravityˆ in excess of all other beings, each controller has a gravityˆ resistance equaled only by enormous spheres revolving at tremendous velocity. Ten of these controllers are now stationed on Urantiaˆ, and one of their most important planetary activities is to facilitate the departure of seraphicˆ transports. In so functioning, all ten of the mechanical controllersˆ act in unison while a battery of one thousand energyˆ transmittersˆ provides the initial momentum for the seraphicˆ departure.
29:4.20 The mechanical controllersˆ are competent to directionize the flow of energyˆ and to facilitate its concentration into the specialized currents or circuitsˆ. These mighty beings have much to do with the segregation, directionization, and intensification of the physical energies and with the equalization of the pressures of the interplanetary circuitsˆ. They are expert in the manipulation of twenty-one of the thirty physical energies of spaceˆ, constituting the powerˆ charge of a superuniverseˆ. They are also able to accomplish much towards the management and control of six of the nine more subtle forms of physical energyˆˆ. By placing these controllers in proper technical relationship to each other and to certain of the powerˆ centers, the associate powerˆ directorsˆ are enabled to effect unbelievable changes in powerˆ adjustment and energyˆ control.
29:4.21 The Master Physical Controllersˆ often function in batteries of hundreds, thousands, and even millions and by varying their positions and formations are able to effect energyˆ control in a collective as well as an individual capacity. As requirements vary, they can upstep and accelerate the energyˆ volume and movement or detain, condense, and retard the energyˆ currents. They influence energyˆ and powerˆ transformations somewhat as so-called catalytic agents augment chemical reactions. They function by inherent ability and in co-operation with the Supremeˆ Powerˆ Centersˆ.
29:4.22 3. Energyˆ Transformersˆ. The number of these beings in a superuniverseˆ is unbelievable. There are almost one million in Satanˆia alone, and the usual quota is one hundred for each inhabited world.
29:4.23 The energyˆ transformersˆ are the conjoint creation of the Seven Supremeˆ Powerˆ Directorsˆ and the Seven Center Supervisors. They are among the more personal orders of physical controllers, and except when an associate powerˆ director is present on an inhabited world, the transformers are in command. They are the planetary inspectors of all departing seraphicˆ transports. All classes of celestialˆ life can utilize the less personal orders of the physical controllers only by liaison with the more personal orders of the associate directors and the energyˆ transformersˆ.
29:4.24 These transformers are powerful and effective living switches, being able to dispose themselves for or against a given powerˆ disposition or directionization. They are also skillful in their efforts to insulate the planets against the powerful energyˆ streams passing between gigantic planetary and starry neighbors. Their energyˆ-transmutive attributes render them most serviceable in the important task of maintaining universal energyˆ balance, or powerˆ equilibrium. At one time they seem to consume or store energyˆ; at other times they appear to exude or liberate energyˆ. The transformers are able to increase or to diminish the “storage-battery” potential of the living and dead energies of their respective realms. But they deal only with physical and semimaterial energies, they do not directly function in the domain of life, neither do they change the forms of living beings.
29:4.25 In some respects the energyˆ transformersˆ are the most remarkable and mysterious of all semimaterial living creatures. They are in some unknown manner physically differentiated, and by varying their liaison relationships, they are able to exert a profound influence upon the energyˆ which passes through their associated presences. The status of the physical realms seems to undergo a transformation under their skillful manipulation. They can and do change the physical form of the energies of spaceˆ. With the aid of their fellow controllers they are actuallˆy able to change the form and potential of twenty-seven of the thirty physical energies of the superuniverseˆ powerˆ charge. That three of these energies are beyond their control proves that they are not instrumentalities of the Unqualified Absoluteˆˆ.
29:4.26 The remaining four groups of the Master Physical Controllersˆ are hardly persons within any acceptable definition of that word. These transmitters, associatorsˆ, dissociatorsˆ, and frandalanksˆ are wholly automatic in their reactions; nevertheless they are in every sense intelligent. We are greatly limited in our knowledge of these wonderful entities because we cannot communicate with them. They appear to understand the language of the realm, but they cannot communicate with us. They seem fully able to receive our communications but quite powerlˆess to make response.
29:4.27 4. Energyˆ Transmittersˆ. These beings function chiefly, but not wholly, in an intraplanetary capacity. They are marvelous dispatchers of energyˆ as it is manifested on the individual worlds.
29:4.28 When energyˆ is to be diverted to a new circuitˆ, the transmitters deploy themselves in a line along the desired energyˆ path, and by virtue of their unique attributes of energyˆ-attraction, they can actuallˆy induce an increased energyˆ flow in the desired direction. This they do just as literally as certain metallic circuitsˆ directionize the flow of certain forms of electric energyˆ; and they are living superconductors for more than half of the thirty forms of physical energyˆˆ.
29:4.29 Transmitters form skillful liaisons which are effective in rehabilitating the weakening currents of specialized energyˆ passing from planet to planet and from station to station on an individual planet. They can detect currents which are much too feeble to be recognized by any other type of living being, and they can so augment these energies that the accompanying message becomes perfectlˆy intelligible. Their services are invaluable to the broadcast receivers.
29:4.30 Energyˆ transmittersˆ can function with regard to all forms of communicable perception; they can render a distant scene “visible” as well as a distant sound “audible.” They provide the emergency lines of communication in the local systemsˆ and on the individual planets. These services must be used by practically all creatures for purposes of communication outside of the regularly established circuitsˆ.
29:4.31 These beings, together with the energyˆ transformersˆ, are indispensable to the maintenance of mortalˆ existence on those worlds having an impoverished atmosphere, and they are an integral part of the technique of life on the nonbreathing planets.
29:4.32 5. Primary Associatorsˆˆ. These interesting and invaluable entities are masterly energyˆ conservators and custodians. Somewhat as a plant stores solar light, so do these living organisms store energyˆ during times of plus manifestations. They work on a gigantic scale, converting the energies of spaceˆ into a physical state not known on Urantiaˆ. They are also able to carry forward these transformations to the point of producing some of the primitive units of material existence. These beings simply act by their presence. They are in no way exhausted or depleted by this function; they act like living catalytic agents.
29:4.33 During seasons of minus manifestations they are empowered to release these accumulated energies. But your knowledge of energyˆ and matter is not sufficiently advanced to make it possible to explain the technique of this phase of their work. They always labor in compliance with universal law, handling and manipulating atoms, electronsˆ, and ultimatonsˆ much as you maneuver adjustable type to make the same alphabetical symbols tell vastly different stories.
29:4.34 The associatorsˆ are the first group of life to appear on an organizing material sphere, and they can function at physical temperatures which you would regard as utterly incompatible with the existence of living beings. They represent an order of life which is simply beyond the range of human imagination. Together with their co-workers, the dissociatorsˆ, they are the most slavish of all intelligent creatures.
29:4.35 6. Secondary Dissociatorsˆˆ. Compared with the primary associatorsˆˆ, these beings of enormous antigravityˆ endowment are the reverse workers. There is never any danger that the special or modified forms of physical energyˆˆ on the local worlds or in the local systemsˆ will be exhausted, for these living organizations are endowed with the unique powerˆ of evolving limitless supplies of energyˆ. They are chiefly concerned with the evolution of a form of energyˆ which is hardly known on Urantiaˆ from a form of matter which is recognized still less. They are truly the alchemists of spaceˆ and the wonder-workers of time. But in all the wonders they work, they never transgress the mandates of Cosmic Supremacyˆ.
29:4.36 7. The Frandalanksˆ. These beings are the joint creation of all three orders of energyˆ-control beings: the primary and secondary forceˆ organizers and the powerˆ directors. Frandalanksˆ are the most numerous of all the Master Physical Controllersˆ; the number functioning in Satanˆia alone is beyond your numerical concept. They are stationed on all inhabited worlds and are always attached to the higher orders of physical controllers. They function interchangeably in the central and superuniversesˆ and in the domains of outer spaceˆˆ.
29:4.37 The frandalanksˆ are created in thirty divisions, one for each form of basic universeˆ forceˆ, and they function exclusively as living and automatic presence, pressure, and velocity gauges. These living barometers are solely concerned with the automatic and unerring registration of the status of all forms of forceˆ-energy. They are to the physical universeˆ what the vast reflectivityˆ mechanism is to the minded universeˆ. The frandalanksˆ that register time in addition to quantitative and qualitative energyˆ presence are called chronoldeksˆ.
29:4.38 I recognize that the frandalanksˆ are intelligent, but I cannot classify them as other than living machines. About the only way I can help you to understand these living mechanisms is to compare them to your own mechanical contrivances which perform with almost intelligentlike precision and accuracy. Then if you would conceive of these beings, draw upon your imagination to the extent of recognizing that in the grand universeˆˆ we actuallˆy have intelligent and living mechanisms (entities) that can perform more intricate tasks involving more stupendous computations with even greater delicacy of accuracy, even with ultimacyˆ of precision.
5. The Master Forceˆ Organizers
29:5.1 The forceˆ organizers are resident on Paradiseˆ, but they function throughout the master universeˆˆ, more particularly in the domains of unorganized spaceˆ. These extraordinary beings are neither creatorsˆ nor creatures, and they comprise two grand divisions of service:
29:5.2 1. Primary Eventuated Master Forceˆ Organizersˆ.
29:5.3 2. Associate Transcendentalˆ Master Forceˆ Organizersˆ.
29:5.4 These two mighty orders of primordialˆ-force manipulators work exclusively under the supervision of the Architects of the Master Universeˆˆˆ, and at the present time they do not function extensively within the boundaries of the grand universeˆˆ.
29:5.5 Primary Master Forceˆ Organizers are the manipulators of the primordialˆ or basic spaceˆ-forcesˆ of the Unqualified Absoluteˆˆ; they are nebulae creatorsˆ. They are the living instigators of the energyˆ cyclones of spaceˆ and the early organizers and directionizers of these gigantic manifestations. These forceˆ organizers transmute primordialˆ forceˆ (pre-energy not responsive to direct Paradiseˆ gravityˆ) into primary or puissant energyˆˆ, energyˆ transmuting from the exclusive grasp of the Unqualified Absoluteˆˆ to the gravityˆ grasp of the Isle of Paradiseˆˆ. They are thereupon succeeded by the associate forceˆ organizers, who continue the process of energyˆ transmutation from the primary through the secondary or gravityˆ-energy stage.
29:5.6 Upon the completion of the plans for the creation of a local universeˆˆ, signalized by the arrival of a Creatorˆ Sonˆ, the Associate Master Forceˆ Organizers give way to the orders of powerˆ directors acting in the superuniverseˆ of astronomic jurisdiction. But in the absence of such plans the associate forceˆ organizers continue on indefinitely in charge of these material creations, even as they now operate in outer spaceˆˆ.
29:5.7 The Master Forceˆ Organizers withstand temperatures and function under physical conditions which would be intolerable even to the versatile powerˆ centers and physical controllers of Orvontonˆ. The only other types of revealed beings capable of functioning in these realms of outer spaceˆˆ are the Solitary Messengersˆ and the Inspired Trinityˆ Spiritsˆ.
