**The pronunciations indicated are those generally used by English-speaking readers of The Urantia Book in the United States and may differ from pronunciations used in other countries and languages. The pronunciation principle followed in this GLOSSARY has been to record the actual, current use by long-time readers, without intending to dictate standards of correctness. A phonetic spelling approach to pronunciation has been used for simplification and to avoid the need to include a separate guide for pronunciation symbols. It is our intention, however, in future editions to utilize the alphabet of the International Phonetic Association IPA to facilitate international usage of this guide. The accent mark used is a single accent ( ‘ ) denoting stress to be put on the most heavily pronounced syllable in the word.
The reference notations within brackets denote Paper:Section.Paragraph. Thus [45:2.3] refers to Paper 45, section 2, paragraph 3 in the Urantia Book.

More simply put is to co-create with us a better life for us; to help us understand that we are part of something greater. Complementary to this information are primary and secondary values (the papers of which delve deeper into these topics can be found on this site) for living lives according to universal paradigms of Love, Goodness, Beauty, Truth.

Ego – The Urantia Book mentions the word “ego” 24 times. Ego means different things to different people, with some thinking ego is always a bad or negative thing.

It is ego that causes a child to want to walk; the “I can do this” motivation. The problem with ego is when the mind assumes an exalted or inflated ego that can spell trouble, such as when one thinks he or she is more competent than they actually are. We generally refer to this inflated ego as being “egotistic.” If the ego is allowed to over-run the Self the potential exists that it may exhibit critical tendencies and the subtle development of their pride [111:6.10] of self and its associated exaggeration of the feeling of self-importance.

interregnum (in ter reg num) also; interregna; an important concept to understand given today’s world and the rapid changes occurring in these times in almost all societies.
1). Wikipedia tells us that an interregnum “… is a period of discontinuity or “gap” in a government, organization, or social order. Archetypally, it was the period of time between the reign of one monarch and the next …. Historically, the longer and heavier interregna were typically accompanied by widespread unrest, civil and succession wars between warlords, and power vacuums filled by foreign invasions or the emergence of a new power. A failed state is usually in interregnum.” ;
2). A simpler definition could be: “A period or gap between two dis-congruities of the advancing of civilization. One aspect of a society not being able to keep up with another society and outstrips the other in advancement. This gap results in upheaval, civil unrest, possibly wars and imbalances in society. “;
3). The Urantia Book has a single reference which is partially quoted here, “For when culture advances overfast, when material achievement outruns the evolution of worship-wisdom, then does civilization contain within itself the seeds of retrogression; and unless buttressed by the swift augmentation of experiential wisdom, such human societies will recede from high but premature levels of attainment, and the “dark ages” of the interregnum of wisdom will bear witness to the inexorable restoration of the imbalance between self-liberty and self-control.” For more see: [118:8.6]

Soul – The word “soul” is used 512 times in The Urantia Book. The word is used in many different and complex meanings in the book. For example: The Forward said the “… soul of man is an experiential acquirement.” Also important are the things the soul is not: it is not mind, nor spirit nor personality. Of all the things a mortal is, the only parts that have eternity potential are personality, spirit, and soul. Nor is it the Spirit of Truth. The soul does not begin to fully grow until the Thought Adjuster arrives in the normal human mind, at which time this embryo of a soul continues to evolved but its evolution is a consequence of the enlarging mature character of the being resulting in an increased mental capacity and spiritual insight. But Jesus tells us: “… the soul that survives time and emerges into eternity must make a living and personal choice between good and evil as they are determined by the true values of the spiritual standards established by the divine spirit which the Father in heaven has sent to dwell within the heart of man.” [132:2.2]
Spirit Monitor – The invisible divine spirit, also called the Thought Adjuster or Mystery Monitor, which is endowed upon the human mind by the Universal Father, usually before a child’s sixth birthday.

The perfect fusion of the human mind and the divine Adjuster is usually achieved before or by the time the ascending mortal reaches the sixth mansion world of progressive morontia existence.

Spirituality – The Urantia Book mentions the word “spirituality” 25 times. Obviously it embraces the quality of spirit, that is, of God and our relationship of our soul’s connection to all Sources and Center. In the book we find spirituality in reference to the “augmentation of cosmic insight,” the last step of a “progressive program of an expanding civilization” on an evolutionary planet. A look at Wikipedia will suggest there are many types of spirituality, almost one for every religion. But the UB wants us to think in terms of absolutes. “Spirituality becomes at once the indicator of one’s nearness to God and the measure of one’s usefulness to fellow beings. Spirituality enhances the ability to discover the beauty in things, to recognize truth in meanings, and to discover goodness in values.” [100:2.4]; and “The achievement of finality of spirituality is equivalent to the attainment of the maximum of reality, the maximum of God-likeness.” [100:2.5]. In [112:6.1] the text infers a progression of spirituality as we move through the morontia worlds and beyond: “The morontia career in the local universe has to do with the continued elevation of the personality mechanism from the beginning morontia level of soul existence up to the final morontia level of progressive spirituality.” (see the ‘morontia’ definition and reference elsewhere in this glossary.)

The perfect fusion of the human mind and the divine Adjuster is usually achieved before or by the time the ascending mortal reaches the sixth mansion world of progressive morontia existence.

[134:8.1].
Time-bound The concept of the I AM is a philosophic concession which we make to the time-bound, space-fettered, finite mind of man, to the impossibility of creature comprehension of eternity existences. Shortsighted and time-bound mortal minds should be slow to criticize the time delays of the farseeing and all-wise administrators of universe affairs.
Time-evolving In the time-evolving universes of space there is greater divinity attenuation, more difficult problems to be solved, and larger opportunity to acquire experience in their solution.
Time-life Mortal identity is a transient time-life condition in the universe; it is real only in so far as the personality elects to become a continuing universe phenomenon.
Time-space-conditioned God the Supreme and God the Ultimate, now evolving in the experiential universes, are not existential — not past eternals, only future eternals, time-space-conditioned and transcendental-conditioned eternals.
Time-space-transcended God the Ultimate implies the attained realization of the synthesized absonite-superpersonal, time-space-transcended, and eventuated-experiential values, co-ordinated on final creative levels of Deity reality.
Timeless The absolute level is beginningless, endless, timeless, and spaceless. This cosmos of the Infinite I AM is therefore endless, limitless, and all-inclusive — timeless, spaceless, and unqualified.
Totalizing This experiential power arising out of the divinity achievements of God the Sevenfold itself manifests the cohesive qualities of divinity by synthesizing—totalizing—as the almighty power of the attained experiential mastery of the evolving creations.
