66. Kiri. Urantia Planeedivürst

Paper 66 : The Planetary Prince of Urantia

LANONANDEK-Poja saabumine ühte keskmisesse maailma näitab, et ürginimese meeles on välja arenenud tahe, võime valida igavese ellujäämise tee. Urantiale ilmus Planeedivürst aga inimtahte tekkimisest peaaegu pool miljonit aastat hiljem.

66:0.1 (741.1) THE advent of a Lanonandek Son on an average world signifies that will, the ability to choose the path of eternal survival, has developed in the mind of primitive man. But on Urantia the Planetary Prince arrived almost half a million years after the appearance of human will.

Ligikaudu viissada tuhat aastat tagasi, samaaegselt kuue värvilise ehk sangikrassi ilmumisega saabus Urantiale Planeedivürst Caligastia. Urantial elas Vürsti saabumise ajal peaaegu pool miljardit primitiivset inimolendit, hajutatuna kõikjale üle Euroopa, Aasia ja Aafrika. Vürsti Mesopotaamiasse rajatud keskus oli maailma elanikkonna ligikaudne keskpunkt.

66:0.2 (741.2) About five hundred thousand years ago and concurrent with the appearance of the six colored or Sangik races, Caligastia, the Planetary Prince, arrived on Urantia. There were almost one-half billion primitive human beings on earth at the time of the Prince’s arrival, and they were well scattered over Europe, Asia, and Africa. The Prince’s headquarters, established in Mesopotamia, was at about the center of world population.

1. Vürst Caligastia

1. Prince Caligastia

Caligastia oli teise astme Lanonandek-Poeg number 9 344. Tal oli kogemusi kohaliku universumi asjade üldise korraldamise ja hilisematest ajastutest konkreetsemalt Satania kohaliku süsteemi juhtimise alal.

66:1.1 (741.3) Caligastia was a Lanonandek Son, number 9,344 of the secondary order. He was experienced in the administration of the affairs of the local universe in general and, during later ages, with the management of the local system of Satania in particular.

Enne Luciferi valitsemisaega Satanial oli Caligastia kuulunud Elukandjate nõuandjate kogu juurde Jerusemis. Lucifer ülendas Caligastia oma isiklikku kaaskonda ja Caligastia täitis vastuvõetaval viisil viit järjestikust au ja usaldust nõudvat ülesannet.

66:1.2 (741.4) Prior to the reign of Lucifer in Satania, Caligastia had been attached to the council of the Life Carrier advisers on Jerusem. Lucifer elevated Caligastia to a position on his personal staff, and he acceptably filled five successive assignments of honor and trust.

Caligastia taotles väga varakult lähetamist Planeedivürstiks, ent iga kord, kui tema taotlus tuli tähtkujude nõukogudes kinnitamisele, jäi tal Tähtkuju Isade nõusolek saamata. Caligastia näis eriliselt soovivat, et teda saadetaks valitsema detsimaal- ehk elu teisendamise planeedile. Enne kui ta lõpuks Urantiale määrati, oli tema taotlus korduvalt tagasi lükatud.

66:1.3 (741.5) Caligastia very early sought a commission as Planetary Prince, but repeatedly, when his request came up for approval in the constellation councils, it would fail to receive the assent of the Constellation Fathers. Caligastia seemed especially desirous of being sent as planetary ruler to a decimal or life-modification world. His petition had several times been disapproved before he was finally assigned to Urantia.

Kui Caligastia lahkus Jerusemilt temale usaldatud maailma, oli tal kroonikate kinnitusel kadestamisväärselt hea teeneteleht tema ustavuse ja pühendumuse kohta selle universumi heaolule, kust ta pärines ja kus viibis, kuigi talle oli iseloomulik ka teatav rahutus ja kalduvus mõnes väikeses asjas kehtestatud korraga vastuollu sattuda.

66:1.4 (741.6) Caligastia went forth from Jerusem to his trust of world dominion with an enviable record of loyalty and devotion to the welfare of the universe of his origin and sojourn, notwithstanding a certain characteristic restlessness coupled with a tendency to disagree with the established order in certain minor matters.

Viibisin Jerusemil, kui särav Caligastia lahkus süsteemi keskusmaailmast. Ükski planeedivürst pole alustanud kunagi oma maailmavalitsemist rikkalikuma kogemustepagasiga ja paremate tulevikuväljavaadetega kui Caligastia sel sündmusrikkal päeval pool miljonit aastat tagasi. Üks on siiski kindel: täites oma ülesannet kajastada seda sündmust kohaliku universumi teabelevis, ei tulnud mulle hetkekski pähe, et see üllas Lanonandek võib nii ruttu reeta tema püha hoole alla usaldatud planeedi ja määrida nii kohutavalt oma universumi poja seisuse üleva klassi ausat nime. Ma arvasin tõesti, et Urantia on üks Satania viiest-kuuest kõige õnnelikumast planeedist, sest ta pidi saama maailma asjade tüüri juurde nii kogenud, targa ja omapärase meele. Ma ei mõistnud siis, et Caligastia on salamisi endasse armumas; ma ei mõistnud siis veel nii täielikult kõrkuse peensusi.

66:1.5 (741.7) I was present on Jerusem when the brilliant Caligastia departed from the system capital. No prince of the planets ever embarked upon a career of world rulership with a richer preparatory experience or with better prospects than did Caligastia on that eventful day one-half million years ago. One thing is certain: As I executed my assignment of putting the narrative of that event on the broadcasts of the local universe, I never for one moment entertained even in the slightest degree any idea that this noble Lanonandek would so shortly betray his sacred trust of planetary custody and so horribly stain the fair name of his exalted order of universe sonship. I really regarded Urantia as being among the five or six most fortunate planets in all Satania in that it was to have such an experienced, brilliant, and original mind at the helm of world affairs. I did not then comprehend that Caligastia was insidiously falling in love with himself; I did not then so fully understand the subtleties of personality pride.

2. Vürsti kaaskond

2. The Prince’s Staff

Urantia Planeedivürsti ei lähetatud missioonile üksi, vaid teda saatis tavaline abide ja abihaldurite korpus.

66:2.1 (742.1) The Planetary Prince of Urantia was not sent out on his mission alone but was accompanied by the usual corps of assistants and administrative helpers.

Seda rühma juhtis Daligastia, Planeedivürsti kaaslane ja abi. Daligastia oli samuti teise astme Lanonandek-Poeg, järjekorranumbriga 319 407. Kui ta Caligastia kaaslaseks lähetati, oli ta abi ametikohal.

66:2.2 (742.2) At the head of this group was Daligastia, the associate-assistant of the Planetary Prince. Daligastia was also a secondary Lanonandek Son, being number 319,407 of that order. He ranked as an assistant at the time of his assignment as Caligastia’s associate.

Planeedi kaaskonda kuulus hulgaliselt inglitest kaastöötajaid ja hulk teisi taevaseid olendeid, kes olid määratud inimrasside huvides tegutsema ja nende heaolu edendama. Ent teie jaoks kõige huvitavama rühma moodustasid Vürsti kaaskonna ainelised liikmed, keda nimetatakse ka Caligastia sadakonnaks.

66:2.3 (742.3) The planetary staff included a large number of angelic co-operators and a host of other celestial beings assigned to advance the interests and promote the welfare of the human races. But from your standpoint the most interesting group of all were the corporeal members of the Prince’s staff — sometimes referred to as the Caligastia one hundred.

Need Vürsti kaaskonna sada taasainestatud liiget oli valinud Caligastia ise enam kui 785 000 Jerusemi tõusuteelisest kodaniku seast, kes soovisid vabatahtlikult Urantiale avastusretkele minna. Kõik sada väljavalitut olid erinevatelt planeetidelt ja ükski neist polnud Urantialt.

66:2.4 (742.4) These one hundred rematerialized members of the Prince’s staff were chosen by Caligastia from over 785,000 ascendant citizens of Jerusem who volunteered for embarkation on the Urantia adventure. Each one of the chosen one hundred was from a different planet, and none of them were from Urantia.

Need Jerusemi vabatahtlikud toodi seeravitranspordiga otse süsteemi keskusmaailmast Urantiale ja saabumisel hoiti neid seeravite sees, kuni neile sai anda planeedi eriliseks teenistuseks ettenähtud kahese iseloomuga isiksusevormi: tõelise lihast ja verest keha, mis oli aga häälestatud süsteemi eluringlustele.

66:2.5 (742.5) These Jerusemite volunteers were brought by seraphic transport direct from the system capital to Urantia, and upon arrival they were held enseraphimed until they could be provided with personality forms of the dual nature of special planetary service, literal bodies consisting of flesh and blood but also attuned to the life circuits of the system.

Mõnda aega enne nende saja Jerusemi kodaniku saabumist olid kaks Urantial asunud juhendavat Elukandjat, kes olid oma kavad teostanud, taotlenud Jerusemilt ja Edentialt luba istutada Andoni ja Fonta tüvikonnast valitud saja püsimajäänud esindaja eluplasmat ainelistesse kehadesse, mis olid kavandatud Vürsti kaaskonna ainelistele liikmetele. Jerusem rahuldas taotluse ja Edentia kinnitas selle.

66:2.6 (742.6) Sometime before the arrival of these one hundred Jerusem citizens, the two supervising Life Carriers resident on Urantia, having previously perfected their plans, petitioned Jerusem and Edentia for permission to transplant the life plasm of one hundred selected survivors of the Andon and Fonta stock into the material bodies to be projected for the corporeal members of the Prince’s staff. The request was granted on Jerusem and approved on Edentia.

Ning nüüd valisid Elukandjad Andoni ja Fonta järeltulijate seast viiskümmend meest ja viiskümmend naist, kelles olid säilinud selle ainulaadse rassi parimad tüvikonnad. Need rassi edasiliikumisele kaasa aidanud andoniidid olid ühe või kahe erandiga üksteisele võõrad. Nad koondati Mõttekohandajate koordineeritud suunamisega ja seeravite juhendamisega kokku väga erinevatest paikadest planeedi Vürsti keskuse ette. Siin anti need sada inimsubjekti Avalonilt pärit kõrge kvalifikatsiooniga vabatahtlikest komisjoni kätesse, kes suunas nende Andoni järeltulijate eluplasmast materjali võtmist. See elusmaterjal viidi seejärel üle ainelistele kehadele, mis olid moodustatud Vürsti kaaskonna saja Jerusemilt tulnud liikme jaoks. Neid äsja süsteemi keskusmaailmast saabunud kodanikke hoiti seni seeravitranspordi unes.

66:2.7 (742.7) Accordingly, fifty males and fifty females of the Andon and Fonta posterity, representing the survival of the best strains of that unique race, were chosen by the Life Carriers. With one or two exceptions these Andonite contributors to the advancement of the race were strangers to one another. They were assembled from widely separated places by co-ordinated Thought Adjuster direction and seraphic guidance at the threshold of the planetary headquarters of the Prince. Here the one hundred human subjects were given into the hands of the highly skilled volunteer commission from Avalon, who directed the material extraction of a portion of the life plasm of these Andon descendants. This living material was then transferred to the material bodies constructed for the use of the one hundred Jerusemite members of the Prince’s staff. Meantime, these newly arrived citizens of the system capital were held in the sleep of seraphic transport.

Need toimingud koos spetsiaalsete kehade otsese moodustamisega Caligastia sadakonnale on andnud ainet arvukatele legendidele, millest paljud segunesid hilisemate, Aadama ja Eeva planeedile paigutamisega seotud pärimustega.

66:2.8 (742.8) These transactions, together with the literal creation of special bodies for the Caligastia one hundred, gave origin to numerous legends, many of which subsequently became confused with the later traditions concerning the planetary installation of Adam and Eve.

Kogu taasisikustamise toiming, alates seeravitranspordi saabumisest saja Jerusemi vabatahtlikuga kuni nende teadvuseletulekuni kolmeste olenditena, kestis täpselt kümme päeva.

66:2.9 (743.1) The entire transaction of repersonalization, from the time of the arrival of the seraphic transports bearing the one hundred Jerusem volunteers until they became conscious, threefold beings of the realm, consumed exactly ten days.

3. Dalamatia — Vürsti linn

3. Dalamatia — The City of the Prince

Planeedivürsti keskus asus tol ajal Pärsia lahe piirkonnas, hilisema Mesopotaamia aladel.

66:3.1 (743.2) The headquarters of the Planetary Prince was situated in the Persian Gulf region of those days, in the district corresponding to later Mesopotamia.

Tolleaegse Mesopotaamia kliima ja maastik olid igas suhtes Vürsti kaaskonna ja nende abiliste ettevõtmistele soodsad, hoopis teistsugused, kui on olnud vahetevahel pärast seda aega. See soodne kliima oli vajalik, et kujundada looduskeskkonda, mis ajendaks primitiivseid urantialasi kultuuri ja tsivilisatsiooni alal teatavaid esimesi samme astuma. Üks suur ülesanne neil ajastutel oli muundada inimene kütist karjakasvatajaks, et ta areneks hiljem rahuarmastavaks, koduhoidvaks põllumeheks.

66:3.2 (743.3) The climate and landscape in the Mesopotamia of those times were in every way favorable to the undertakings of the Prince’s staff and their assistants, very different from conditions which have sometimes since prevailed. It was necessary to have such a favoring climate as a part of the natural environment designed to induce primitive Urantians to make certain initial advances in culture and civilization. The one great task of those ages was to transform man from a hunter to a herder, with the hope that later on he would evolve into a peace-loving, home-abiding farmer.

Planeedivürsti keskus Urantial oli tüüpiline noore ja arengulise sfääri jaam. Vürsti asupaiga keskmeks oli väga lihtne, kuid kaunis linn, mida ümbritses kaheteistkümne meetri kõrgune müür. See maailma kultuurikeskus sai Daligastia auks nimeks Dalamatia.

66:3.3 (743.4) The headquarters of the Planetary Prince on Urantia was typical of such stations on a young and developing sphere. The nucleus of the Prince’s settlement was a very simple but beautiful city, enclosed within a wall forty feet high. This world center of culture was named Dalamatia in honor of Daligastia.

Linn koosnes kümnest linnaosast, mille südames asusid ainelise kaaskonna kümne nõukogu peahooned. Linna keskel oli nähtamatu Isa jaoks ehitatud tempel. Vürsti ja tema kaaslaste halduskeskus seati sisse kaheteistkümnesse otse templi ümber paiknevasse kambrisse.

66:3.4 (743.5) The city was laid out in ten subdivisions with the headquarters mansions of the ten councils of the corporeal staff situated at the centers of these subdivisions. Centermost in the city was the temple of the unseen Father. The administrative headquarters of the Prince and his associates was arranged in twelve chambers immediately grouped about the temple itself.

Kõik Dalamatia hooned olid ühekorruselised, välja arvatud nõukogude keskused, mis olid kahekorruselised, ja kõigi Isa keskne tempel, mis oli väike, kuid kolmekorruseline.

66:3.5 (743.6) The buildings of Dalamatia were all one story except the council headquarters, which were two stories, and the central temple of the Father of all, which was small but three stories in height.

Linnas kasutati nende varaste aegade parimat ehitusmaterjali — tellist. Kivi ja puitu tarvitati väga vähe. Dalamatia eeskujul täiustus tunduvalt ümbruskonna rahvaste elamuehitus ja külade arhitektuur.

66:3.6 (743.7) The city represented the best practices of those early days in building material — brick. Very little stone or wood was used. Home building and village architecture among the surrounding peoples were greatly improved by the Dalamatian example.

Vürsti keskuse lähedal elas igast rassist ja ühiskonnakihist pärit inimolendeid. Ning Vürsti koolide esimesed õpilased võeti just nende lähedalasuvate hõimude seast. Need Dalamatia varased koolid olid küll algelised, kuid pakkusid kõike, mida sai selle ürgajastu meeste ja naiste heaks teha.

66:3.7 (743.8) Near the Prince’s headquarters there dwelt all colors and strata of human beings. And it was from these near-by tribes that the first students of the Prince’s schools were recruited. Although these early schools of Dalamatia were crude, they provided all that could be done for the men and women of that primitive age.

Vürsti aineline kaaskond koondas pidevalt enda ümber ümbruskonna hõimude parimaid esindajaid ja saatis õpilased pärast koolitamist ja innustamist tagasi oma rahvast õpetama ja juhtima.

66:3.8 (743.9) The Prince’s corporeal staff continuously gathered about them the superior individuals of the surrounding tribes and, after training and inspiring these students, sent them back as teachers and leaders of their respective peoples.

4. Sadakonna algusajad

4. Early Days of the One Hundred

Vürsti kaaskonna saabumine jättis sügava mulje. Kuigi selle uudise levimisele kulus peaaegu tuhat aastat, avaldasid neile Mesopotaamia keskuse läheduses elavatele hõimudele uute Urantial-viibijate õpetused ja käitumine väga suurt mõju. Ka teie hilisem mütoloogia kasvas suures osas välja just neil varastel aegadel põhinevatest legendidest, mil Vürsti kaaskonna liikmed olid Urantial taasisikustatud üliinimesteks.

66:4.1 (743.10) The arrival of the Prince’s staff created a profound impression. While it required almost a thousand years for the news to spread abroad, those tribes near the Mesopotamian headquarters were tremendously influenced by the teachings and conduct of the one hundred new sojourners on Urantia. And much of your subsequent mythology grew out of the garbled legends of these early days when these members of the Prince’s staff were repersonalized on Urantia as supermen.

Planeediväliste õpetajate head mõju takistas tõsiselt surelike kalduvus neid jumalateks pidada, ent kui nende maakerale saabumise viis välja arvata, ei kasutanud Caligastia sadakond — viiskümmend meest ja viiskümmend naist — üleloomulikke meetodeid ega üleinimlikke mõjutusi.

66:4.2 (744.1) The serious obstacle to the good influence of such extraplanetary teachers is the tendency of mortals to regard them as gods, but aside from the technique of their appearance on earth the Caligastia one hundred — fifty men and fifty women — did not resort to supernatural methods nor superhuman manipulations.

Ent see aineline kaaskond oli vaatamata kõigele üleinimlik. Nad alustasid oma missiooni Urantial erakordsete kolmeste olenditena:

66:4.3 (744.2) But the corporeal staff were nonetheless superhuman. They began their mission on Urantia as extraordinary threefold beings:

1. Nad olid ainelised ja suhteliselt inimtaolised, sest neis sisaldus ühe inimrassi, Urantia andoniitide tegelikku eluplasmat.

66:4.4 (744.3) 1. They were corporeal and relatively human, for they embodied the actual life plasm of one of the human races, the Andonic life plasm of Urantia.

Need Vürsti kaaskonna sada liiget jagunesid sugupoole ja varasema sureliku seisundi mõttes võrdseteks rühmadeks. Iga rühma liige võis saada mõne uue füüsiliste olendite klassi kaasvanemaks, kuid tegelikult oli neil lubatud vaid teatavatel tingimustel lapsevanemaks hakata. Planeedivürsti aineline kaaskond sigitab tavaliselt oma järglased veidi enne planeedi erilisest teenistusest taandumist. See juhtub harilikult planeedi Aadama ja Eeva saabumise ajal või veidi hiljem.

66:4.5 (744.4) These one hundred members of the Prince’s staff were divided equally as to sex and in accordance with their previous mortal status. Each person of this group was capable of becoming coparental to some new order of physical being, but they had been carefully instructed to resort to parenthood only under certain conditions. It is customary for the corporeal staff of a Planetary Prince to procreate their successors sometime prior to retiring from special planetary service. Usually this is at, or shortly after, the time of the arrival of the Planetary Adam and Eve.

Neil erilistel olenditel polnud seetõttu peaaegu aimugi, missugust tüüpi aineline loodud-olend nende sugulisest ühendusest võib sündida. Ning nad ei saanudki seda teada, enne selle etapi saabumist nende töös siin maailmas paiskas mäss kogu süsteemi segamini ja need, kes hiljem vanemarolli täitsid, olid süsteemi eluvooludest eraldatud.

66:4.6 (744.5) These special beings therefore had little or no idea as to what type of material creature would be produced by their sexual union. And they never did know; before the time for such a step in the prosecution of their world work the entire regime was upset by rebellion, and those who later functioned in the parental role had been isolated from the life currents of the system.

Caligastia kaaskonna ainestatud liikmed sarnanesid nahavärvuse ja keele poolest Andoni rassiga. Nad sõid toitu nagu maailma surelikudki, kuid ühe erinevusega: selle rühma taasloodud kehad rahuldusid täielikult lihata toiduga. See oli ka üks kaalutlusi, mis määras nende asupaigaks sooja piirkonna, kus oli külluses puuvilju ja pähkleid. Lihata toidu kasutamine pärinebki Caligastia sadakonna aegadest, sest see tava levis lähedale ja kaugele ning mõjutas paljude ümbruskonna hõimude toitumisharjumusi, kes pärinesid kunagistest ainult lihasööjatest arenevatest rassidest.

66:4.7 (744.6) In skin color and language these materialized members of Caligastia’s staff followed the Andonic race. They partook of food as did the mortals of the realm with this difference: The re-created bodies of this group were fully satisfied by a nonflesh diet. This was one of the considerations which determined their residence in a warm region abounding in fruits and nuts. The practice of subsisting on a nonflesh diet dates from the times of the Caligastia one hundred, for this custom spread near and far to affect the eating habits of many surrounding tribes, groups of origin in the once exclusively meat-eating evolutionary races.

2. Need sada olendit olid ainelised, kuid üleinimlikud, sest nad olid Urantial taasmoodustatud ainulaadsete, kõrget ja erilist klassi meeste ja naistena.

66:4.8 (744.7) 2. The one hundred were material but superhuman beings, having been reconstituted on Urantia as unique men and women of a high and special order.

Selle rühma liikmetel oli ajutine Jerusemi kodakondsus ning nad polnud seetõttu veel oma Mõttekohandajatega ühte sulanud. Kui nad end vabatahtlikeks pakkusid ja koos poja seisuse laskuvate klassidega planeediteenistusse võeti, siis nende Kohandajad eraldusid neist. Ent need jerusemlased olid üleinimlikud olendid — neil oli arenenud tõusuteelise hing. Sureliku lihaliku elu ajal on hing embrüonaalses olekus; see sünnib (tõuseb üles) morontiaelus ja kasvab järjestikuste morontiamaailmade läbimisel. Ka Caligastia sadakonna hinged olid avardunud seitsme eluasemeilma järjestikustes kogemustes kuni Jerusemi kodaniku seisundini.

66:4.9 (744.8) This group, while enjoying provisional citizenship on Jerusem, were as yet unfused with their Thought Adjusters; and when they volunteered and were accepted for planetary service in liaison with the descending orders of sonship, their Adjusters were detached. But these Jerusemites were superhuman beings — they possessed souls of ascendant growth. During the mortal life in the flesh the soul is of embryonic estate; it is born (resurrected) in the morontia life and experiences growth through the successive morontia worlds. And the souls of the Caligastia one hundred had thus expanded through the progressive experiences of the seven mansion worlds to citizenship status on Jerusem.

Vastavalt saadud juhistele ei tegelnud kaaskonna liikmed sugulise paljunemisega, kuid uurisid hoolikalt oma kehaehitust ning intellektuaalse (meele) ja morontia (hinge) armuühte kõikvõimalikke faase. Nende Dalamatias viibimise kolmekümne kolmandal aastal, ammu enne müüri valmimist, avastasid Dani rühma teine ja seitsmes liige juhuslikult oma morontiaminade (mis peaksid olema sootud ja ainetud) armuühtega kaasneva nähtuse: selle avastuse tulemusena tekkis esimene esmastest keskteelistest. See uus olend oli planeedi kaaskonnale ja oma taevastele kaaslastele täiesti nähtav, kuid mitte erinevatest inimhõimudest pärit meestele ja naistele. Planeedivürsti loaga asus kogu aineline kaaskond samasuguseid olendeid looma ja esimese Dani paari juhiste järgi see kõigil ka õnnestus. Nii tekkis Vürsti kaaskonnast lõpuks esimene, 50 000-liikmeline esmaste keskteeliste korpus.

66:4.10 (744.9) In conformity to their instructions the staff did not engage in sexual reproduction, but they did painstakingly study their personal constitutions, and they carefully explored every imaginable phase of intellectual (mind) and morontia (soul) liaison. And it was during the thirty-third year of their sojourn in Dalamatia, long before the wall was completed, that number two and number seven of the Danite group accidentally discovered a phenomenon attendant upon the liaison of their morontia selves (supposedly nonsexual and nonmaterial); and the result of this adventure proved to be the first of the primary midway creatures. This new being was wholly visible to the planetary staff and to their celestial associates but was not visible to the men and women of the various human tribes. Upon authority of the Planetary Prince the entire corporeal staff undertook the production of similar beings, and all were successful, following the instructions of the pioneer Danite pair. Thus did the Prince’s staff eventually bring into being the original corps of 50,000 primary midwayers.

Need keskmist tüüpi loodud-olendid olid maailma keskuse asjaajamistes väga kasulikud. Nad olid inimolenditele nähtamatud, kuid Dalamatias viibivatele ürgini mestele anti nende nähtamatute poolvaimude kohta õpetusi ning tervete ajastute jooksul esindasidki nad nende arenguliste surelike jaoks kogu vaimumaailma.

66:4.11 (745.1) These mid-type creatures were of great service in carrying on the affairs of the world’s headquarters. They were invisible to human beings, but the primitive sojourners at Dalamatia were taught about these unseen semispirits, and for ages they constituted the sum total of the spirit world to these evolving mortals.

3. Caligastia sadakonna liikmed olid isikuna surematud ehk mittesurevad. Nende ainelistes kehades ringlesid süsteemi eluvoolude täiendavad vastumürgid; kui nad poleks mässu tõttu eluvooludest eraldunud, oleksid nad elanud lõputult kuni Jumala Poja saabumiseni või vabanenud kunagi hiljem, et jätkata oma katkenud teekonda Havonasse ja Paradiisi.

66:4.12 (745.2) 3. The Caligastia one hundred were personally immortal, or undying. There circulated through their material forms the antidotal complements of the life currents of the system; and had they not lost contact with the life circuits through rebellion, they would have lived on indefinitely until the arrival of a subsequent Son of God, or until their sometime later release to resume the interrupted journey to Havona and Paradise.

Need Satania eluvoolude täiendavad vastumürgid saadi elupuu viljast; elupuu oli põõsas, mille Norlatiadeki Kõigekõrgemad olid saatnud Caligastia saabumise ajal Edentialt Urantiale. Dalamatia ajal kasvas see puu nähtamatu Isa auks ehitatud templi keskel õues ja just elupuu vili võimaldas Vürsti kaaskonna ainelistel ja muidu surelikel olenditel elada määramatu aja, kuni neil oli võimalik seda tarvitada.

66:4.13 (745.3) These antidotal complements of the Satania life currents were derived from the fruit of the tree of life, a shrub of Edentia which was sent to Urantia by the Most Highs of Norlatiadek at the time of Caligastia’s arrival. In the days of Dalamatia this tree grew in the central courtyard of the temple of the unseen Father, and it was the fruit of the tree of life that enabled the material and otherwise mortal beings of the Prince’s staff to live on indefinitely as long as they had access to it.

Kuigi sel ülitoidusel polnud arenevate rasside jaoks mingit väärtust, piisas sellest täielikult Caligastia sadakonna ja ka nendega koos tegutseva saja teisenenud andoniidi elu jätkamiseks.

66:4.14 (745.4) While of no value to the evolutionary races, this supersustenance was quite sufficient to confer continuous life upon the Caligastia one hundred and also upon the one hundred modified Andonites who were associated with them.

Siinkohal tuleks selgitada, et sel ajal, kui sada andoniiti andsid oma inimalgeplasmat Vürsti kaaskonnale, viisid Elukandjad nende surelikesse kehadesse süsteemi ringlustest täienduse; see võimaldas neil elada koos kaaskonnaga edasi, sajandist sajandisse, trotsides füüsilist surma.

66:4.15 (745.5) It should be explained in this connection that, at the time the one hundred Andonites contributed their human germ plasm to the members of the Prince’s staff, the Life Carriers introduced into their mortal bodies the complement of the system circuits; and thus were they enabled to live on concurrently with the staff, century after century, in defiance of physical death.

Lõpuks anti sajale andoniidile teada, missuguse panuse nad endast kõrgematesse uutesse kehadesse andsid, ja needsamad sada Andoni hõimude last jäeti keskusesse Vürsti ainelise kaaskonna isiklikeks abilisteks.

66:4.16 (745.6) Eventually the one hundred Andonites were made aware of their contribution to the new forms of their superiors, and these same one hundred children of the Andon tribes were kept at headquarters as the personal attendants of the Prince’s corporeal staff.

5. Sadakonna tegevuse korraldus

5. Organization of the One Hundred

Sadakonna tegevus oli korraldatud teenistusena kümnes autonoomses nõukogus, igas kümme liiget. Kui mitu nõukogu pidas ühist istungit, juhatas seda koosolekut Daligastia. Need kümme rühma moodustati järgmiselt:

66:5.1 (745.7) The one hundred were organized for service in ten autonomous councils of ten members each. When two or more of these ten councils met in joint session, such liaison gatherings were presided over by Daligastia. These ten groups were constituted as follows:

1. Toidu ja ainelise heaolu nõukogu. Rühma eesistuja oli Ang. See võimekas korpus edendas toidu, vee, riietuse ja inimliigi ainelist arengut. Nad õpetasid kaeve kaevama, allikaid juhtima ja maad parandama ning selgitasid kõrgustike ja põhjaalade elanikele, kuidas nahka paremini rõivaste valmistamiseks töödelda. Kunstide ja teaduste õpetajad tutvustasid hiljem kangakudumist.

66:5.2 (745.8) 1. The council on food and material welfare. This group was presided over by Ang. Food, water, clothes, and the material advancement of the human species were fostered by this able corps. They taught well digging, spring control, and irrigation. They taught those from the higher altitudes and from the north improved methods of treating skins for use as clothing, and weaving was later introduced by the teachers of art and science.

Suur edasiminek toimus toidusäilitamisviiside alal. Toiduaineid küpsetati, kuivatati ja suitsutati säilitamiseks, neist sai esimene omandiliik. Inimesele õpetati varude loomist näljahädadeks, mis perioodiliselt hävitasid suure osa maailma elanikkonnast.

66:5.3 (746.1) Great advances were made in methods of food storage. Food was preserved by cooking, drying, and smoking; it thus became the earliest property. Man was taught to provide for the hazards of famine, which periodically decimated the world.

2. Loomade kodustamise ja kasutamise komitee. See nõukogu oli pühendunud nende loomade valimisele ja aretamisele, kes sobisid kõige paremini inimolenditele abiks raskuste kandmisel ja edasiliikumisel, toidu hankimisel ja hiljem ka maaharimisel. Seda võimekat korpust juhtis Bon.

66:5.4 (746.2) 2. The board of animal domestication and utilization. This council was dedicated to the task of selecting and breeding those animals best adapted to help human beings in bearing burdens and transporting themselves, to supply food, and later on to be of service in the cultivation of the soil. This able corps was directed by Bon.

Taltsutati mitu kasulikku praeguseks väljasurnud loomatüüpi ja mõned, kes on jäänud koduloomadeks praegusajani. Inimene oli kaua elanud koos koeraga ja sinisel inimesel oli juba õnnestunud taltsutada elevant. Lehm täiustus hoolika aretamise tulemusena sedavõrd, et temast sai väärtuslik toiduallikas; või ja juust muutusid inimese toidulaual tavalisteks. Inimesi õpetati kasutama härgi koormate kandmiseks, kuid hobune kodustati hiljem. Selle korpuse liikmed õpetasid esimesena inimesi kasutama vedamise hõlbustamiseks ratast.

66:5.5 (746.3) Several types of useful animals, now extinct, were tamed, together with some that have continued as domesticated animals to the present day. Man had long lived with the dog, and the blue man had already been successful in taming the elephant. The cow was so improved by careful breeding as to become a valuable source of food; butter and cheese became common articles of human diet. Men were taught to use oxen for burden bearing, but the horse was not domesticated until a later date. The members of this corps first taught men to use the wheel for the facilitation of traction.

Neil aegadel kasutati esmakordselt ka kirjatuvisid, keda võeti pikkadele reisidele kaasa sõnumite või appikutsete saatmiseks. Boni rühmal õnnestus õpetada esimesed fandorid kandma ka inimesi, kuid fandorid surid enam kui kolmkümmend tuhat aastat tagasi välja.

66:5.6 (746.4) It was in these days that carrier pigeons were first used, being taken on long journeys for the purpose of sending messages or calls for help. Bon’s group were successful in training the great fandors as passenger birds, but they became extinct more than thirty thousand years ago.

3. Röövloomadega toimetulemise nõuandjad. Ei piisanud sellest, et varajane inimene püüdis teatavaid loomi kodustada. Ta pidi ka õppima end ülejäänud vaenuliku loomariigi eest kaitsma. Seda õpetajate rühma juhtis Dan.

66:5.7 (746.5) 3. The advisers regarding the conquest of predatory animals. It was not enough that early man should try to domesticate certain animals, but he must also learn how to protect himself from destruction by the remainder of the hostile animal world. This group was captained by Dan.

Iidne linnamüür oli ehitatud kaitseks metsikute kiskjate eest ning pidi ära hoidma vaenulike inimeste üllatusrünnakud. Väljaspool müüre ja metsades elutsevad inimesed elasid puude otsa ehitatud majakestes või kivionnides ja valvasid öösiti lõket. Oli üsna loomulik, et õpetajad pühendasid palju aega oma õpilaste teadmiste tõstmisele elamute täiustamise alal. Paremate võtete ja püüniste kasutamine aitas tunduvalt edukamalt loomi alistada.

66:5.8 (746.6) The purpose of an ancient city wall was to protect against ferocious beasts as well as to prevent surprise attacks by hostile humans. Those living without the walls and in the forest were dependent on tree dwellings, stone huts, and the maintenance of night fires. It was therefore very natural that these teachers should devote much time to instructing their pupils in the improvement of human dwellings. By employing improved techniques and by the use of traps, great progress was made in animal subjugation.

4. Õpetatud kogu teadmiste levitamiseks ja säilitamiseks. See rühm korraldas ja suunas nende varaste aegade puhtharidusalaseid ettevõtmisi. Selle eesistuja oli Fad. Fadi õpetamismeetodiks oli töö juhendamine koos täiustatud tööviiside õpetamisega. Fad koostas esimese tähestiku ja viis sisse kirjutamissüsteemi. Selles tähestikus oli kakskümmend viis tähte. Need varased rahvad kasutasid kirjatarvetena puukoort, savi- või kivitahvleid, vasardatud nahast pärgamenti ja algelist paberitaolist materjali, mida valmistati herilasepesadest. Dalamatia raamatukogu, mis hävis varsti pärast Caligastia vaenulikkuse ilmsikstulekut, koosnes enam kui miljonist üksikkroonikast ning seda nimetati „Fadi majaks”.

66:5.9 (746.7) 4. The faculty on dissemination and conservation of knowledge. This group organized and directed the purely educational endeavors of those early ages. It was presided over by Fad. The educational methods of Fad consisted in supervision of employment accompanied by instruction in improved methods of labor. Fad formulated the first alphabet and introduced a writing system. This alphabet contained twenty-five characters. For writing material these early peoples utilized tree barks, clay tablets, stone slabs, a form of parchment made of hammered hides, and a crude form of paperlike material made from wasps’ nests. The Dalamatia library, destroyed soon after the Caligastia disaffection, comprised more than two million separate records and was known as the “house of Fad.”

Sinisele inimesele meeldis tähtkiri ja ta jõudis sel alal kõige kaugemale. Punane inimene eelistas piltkirja, kollased hakkasid aga kasutama sõnade ja mõtete tähistamiseks sümboleid, nagu seda praegugi teevad. Ent mässuga kaasneva segaduse käigus läks see tähestik ja palju muudki maailma jaoks kaduma. Caligastia reetlikkus hävitas maailmas lootuse leida üleüldist keelt, vähemalt lugematuteks ajastuteks.

66:5.10 (746.8) The blue man was partial to alphabet writing and made the greatest progress along such lines. The red man preferred pictorial writing, while the yellow races drifted into the use of symbols for words and ideas, much like those they now employ. But the alphabet and much more was subsequently lost to the world during the confusion attendant upon rebellion. The Caligastia defection destroyed the hope of the world for a universal language, at least for untold ages.

5. Tööstus- ja kaubanduskomisjon. See nõukogu tegeles tööstusliku tootmise arendamisega hõimudes ja erinevate, omavahel mittesõdivate rühmade vahelise kaubanduse edendamisega. Seda juhtis Nod. Korpus aitas kaasa igat liiki algelise tootmise arendamisele. Otseselt tänu nende tegevusele tõusis elatustase, sest ilmus palju uusi kaupu, mida algelised inimesed nüüd omada soovisid. Nad laiendasid tunduvalt kauplemist teadus- ja kunstinõukogu toodetud täiustatud soolaga.

66:5.11 (747.1) 5. The commission on industry and trade. This council was employed in fostering industry within the tribes and in promoting trade between the various peace groups. Its leader was Nod. Every form of primitive manufacture was encouraged by this corps. They contributed directly to the elevation of standards of living by providing many new commodities to attract the fancy of primitive men. They greatly expanded the trade in the improved salt produced by the council on science and art.

Nende Dalamatia koolides hariduse saanud valgustatud rühmade seas võeti esimesena kasutusele kaubanduslikud krediidid. Nad said kesksest krediidivahetusest garanteeritud märgid, mida võis vahetada tegelike vahetuskaupade asemel. Need äritehingud jäid maailmas sadadeks tuhandeteks aastateks samale tasemele.

66:5.12 (747.2) It was among these enlightened groups educated in the Dalamatia schools that the first commercial credit was practiced. From a central exchange of credits they secured tokens which were accepted in lieu of the actual objects of barter. The world did not improve upon these business methods for hundreds of thousands of years.

6. Ilmutusliku religiooni kolledž. Selle institutsiooni tegevus oli aeglane. Urantia tsivilisatsiooni sepistati piltlikult puuduse alasi ja hirmu vasarate vahel. Ent see rühm oli jõudnud oma püüetes asendada loodud-olendi hirm (tondikummardamine) hirmuga Looja ees juba üsna kaugele, enne kui nende töö katkes hilisema, lahkulöömismurrangu tõttu tekkinud segaduse käigus. Seda nõukogu juhtis Hap.

66:5.13 (747.3) 6. The college of revealed religion. This body was slow in functioning. Urantia civilization was literally forged out between the anvil of necessity and the hammers of fear. But this group had made considerable progress in their attempt to substitute Creator fear for creature fear (ghost worship) before their labors were interrupted by the later confusion attendant upon the secession upheaval. The head of this council was Hap.

Mitte keegi Vürsti kaaskonnast ei esitanud ilmutusi, mis oleksid evolutsiooni komplitseerinud; nad esitasid ilmutusi ainult kulminatsioonina, kui evolutsioonis sisalduvad jõud olid ammendunud. Ent Hap andis siiski järele linnaelanike soovile seada sisse mingi religioosne teenistus. Tema rühm andis dalamaatlastele seitse palveldamislaulu ning igapäevase tänulause ning lõpuks õpetati neile ka „Isa palvet”, mis oli järgmine:

66:5.14 (747.4) None of the Prince’s staff would present revelation to complicate evolution; they presented revelation only as the climax of their exhaustion of the forces of evolution. But Hap did yield to the desire of the inhabitants of the city for the establishment of a form of religious service. His group provided the Dalamatians with the seven chants of worship and also gave them the daily praise-phrase and eventually taught them “the Father’s prayer,” which was:

„Kõige Isa, kelle Poega me austame, vaata heatahtlikult alla meie peale. Päästa meid hirmust kõige ees peale sinu enda. Aita meil oma jumalike õpetajate meele järele olla ja pane igaveseks tõde meie huulile. Päästa meid vägivallast ja vihast; pane meid lugu pidama oma vanematest ja kõigest, mis kuulub meie naabritele. Anna meile see haljaste karjamaade ja viljakate karjade aeg, mis rõõmustab meie südant. Palvetame, et lubatud ülendaja saabuks kiiremini, ning me täidame siis sinu tahet siin maailmas samamoodi, kui teevad teised teispoolsetes maailmades.”

66:5.15 (747.5) “Father of all, whose Son we honor, look down upon us with favor. Deliver us from the fear of all save you. Make us a pleasure to our divine teachers and forever put truth on our lips. Deliver us from violence and anger; give us respect for our elders and that which belongs to our neighbors. Give us this season green pastures and fruitful flocks to gladden our hearts. We pray for the hastening of the coming of the promised uplifter, and we would do your will on this world as others do on worlds beyond.”

Kuigi Vürsti kaaskonda piirasid rasside täiustamisel loomulikud vahendid ja tavalised viisid, lubasid nad, et edasise arengulise kasvu sihina, bioloogilise arengu kõrgpunkti jõudmisel kingitakse uus aadamlik rass.

66:5.16 (747.6) Although the Prince’s staff were limited to natural means and ordinary methods of race improvement, they held out the promise of the Adamic gift of a new race as the goal of subsequent evolutionary growth upon the attainment of the height of biologic development.

7. Tervise ja elu vardjad. See nõukogu tegeles tervishoiu ja algelise hügieeni edendamisega ning seda juhtis Lut.

66:5.17 (747.7) 7. The guardians of health and life. This council was concerned with the introduction of sanitation and the promotion of primitive hygiene and was led by Lut.

Selle liikmete õpetustest läks hilisemate ajastute segaduse käigus palju kaduma ning need avastati uuesti alles kahekümnendal sajandil. Nad õpetasid inimkonnale, et toidu küpsetamine, keetmine ja praadimine aitab vältida haigestumist; samuti seda, et niisugune toiduainete töötlemine vähendab tunduvalt väikelaste suremust ja hõlbustab varajast rinnast võõrutamist.

66:5.18 (747.8) Its members taught much that was lost during the confusion of subsequent ages, never to be rediscovered until the twentieth century. They taught mankind that cooking, boiling and roasting, was a means of avoiding sickness; also that such cooking greatly reduced infant mortality and facilitated early weaning.

Paljud Luti tervisevardjate varased õpetused püsisid maakera hõimude seas kuni Moosese ajani, kuigi olid selleks ajaks tugevasti moonutatud ja muutunud.

66:5.19 (747.9) Many of the early teachings of Lut’s guardians of health persisted among the tribes of earth on down to the days of Moses, even though they became much garbled and were greatly changed.

Suureks takistuseks hügieeni propageerimisel nende harimatute rahvaste seas oli asjaolu, et paljude haiguste tegelikud põhjustajad olid palja silmaga nägemiseks liiga väikesed, samuti ebausklik austus tule vastu. Et veenda inimesi prügi põletamise vajalikkuses, kulus tuhandeid aastaid. Kuni selle ajani soovitati neil kõdunevad jäätmed vähemasti maha matta. Selle epohhi suur sanitaarne edasiminek tuli tänu teadmiste levitamisele päikesevalguse tervistavatest ja haigusi hävitavatest omadustest.

66:5.20 (748.1) The great obstacle in the way of promoting hygiene among these ignorant peoples consisted in the fact that the real causes of many diseases were too small to be seen by the naked eye, and also because they all held fire in superstitious regard. It required thousands of years to persuade them to burn refuse. In the meantime they were urged to bury their decaying rubbish. The great sanitary advance of this epoch came from the dissemination of knowledge regarding the health-giving and disease-destroying properties of sunlight.

Suplemine oli enne Vürsti saabumist eranditult religioosne tseremoonia. Oli tõesti raske veenda ürginimesi oma keha tervise pärast pesema. Lõpuks ajendas Lut jutlustajaid lülitama veega pesemine puhastustseremooniatesse, mida tuli läbi viia kord nädalas seoses keskpäevapalvusega kui kõige Isa palveldamisviisi.

66:5.21 (748.2) Before the Prince’s arrival, bathing had been an exclusively religious ceremonial. It was indeed difficult to persuade primitive men to wash their bodies as a health practice. Lut finally induced the religious teachers to include cleansing with water as a part of the purification ceremonies to be practiced in connection with the noontime devotions, once a week, in the worship of the Father of all.

Samuti püüdsid need tervisevardjad süljevahetuse ja verejoomise kombe asemel sisse viia käepigistust kui isikliku sõpruse ja rühmalojaalsuse märki. Ent kui primitiivsed rahvad pääsesid oma kõrgemate juhtide õpetuste surve alt, pöördusid nad kiiresti tagasi oma endiste tervisthukutavate ja haigusi sigitavate, harimatute ja ebausklike eluviiside juurde.

66:5.22 (748.3) These guardians of health also sought to introduce handshaking in substitution for saliva exchange or blood drinking as a seal of personal friendship and as a token of group loyalty. But when out from under the compelling pressure of the teachings of their superior leaders, these primitive peoples were not slow in reverting to their former health-destroying and disease-breeding practices of ignorance and superstition.

8. Planeedi kunsti- ja teadusnõukogu. See korpus parandas tunduvalt varase inimese tootmisviise ja ilumeelt. Seda juhtis Mek.

66:5.23 (748.4) 8. The planetary council on art and science. This corps did much to improve the industrial technique of early man and to elevate his concepts of beauty. Their leader was Mek.

Kunst ja teadus olid kõikjal maailmas mõõnaseisus, ent dalamaatlastele õpetati füüsika ja keemia algeid. Keraamikat arendati edasi, kõiki ehiskunste täiustati ja avardati tunduvalt inimese iluideaale. Ent muusika arenes kuni violetse rassi saabumiseni vähe.

66:5.24 (748.5) Art and science were at a low ebb throughout the world, but the rudiments of physics and chemistry were taught the Dalamatians. Pottery was advanced, decorative arts were all improved, and the ideals of human beauty were greatly enhanced. But music made little progress until after the arrival of the violet race.

Ürginimesed ei nõustunud auruenergiat proovima, kuigi nende õpetajad seda neile korduvalt tungivalt soovitasid; nad ei saanudki üle oma suurest hirmust mahutisse vangistatud auru plahvatusjõu ees. Lõpuks soostusid nad küll töötama metallide ja tulega, kuigi tulipunane rauatükk oli varasele inimesele hirmutav asi.

66:5.25 (748.6) These primitive men would not consent to experiment with steam power, notwithstanding the repeated urgings of their teachers; never could they overcome their great fear of the explosive power of confined steam. They were, however, finally persuaded to work with metals and fire, although a piece of red-hot metal was a terrorizing object to early man.

Mek aitas andoniitide kultuuri üsna palju edasi viia ja sinise inimese kunsti täiustada. Sinise inimese segunemisel Andoni tüvikonnaga tekkis kunstiandega sugu, kelle seast paljud said meisterlikeks skulptoriteks. Nad ei töötanud kivi ega marmoriga, ent nende põletamisega kõvendatud saviesemed kaunistasid Dalamatia aedu.

66:5.26 (748.7) Mek did a great deal to advance the culture of the Andonites and to improve the art of the blue man. A blend of the blue man with the Andon stock produced an artistically gifted type, and many of them became master sculptors. They did not work in stone or marble, but their works of clay, hardened by baking, adorned the gardens of Dalamatia.

Tarbekunst arenes palju edasi, kuid enamik sellest läks pikkadel ja pimedatel mässuajastutel kaduma ning avastati uuesti alles nüüdisajal.

66:5.27 (748.8) Great progress was made in the home arts, most of which were lost in the long and dark ages of rebellion, never to be rediscovered until modern times.

9. Arenenud hõimusuhete juhtijad. Sellele rühmale usaldati inimühiskonna tõstmine riikluse tasemele. Nende ülem oli Tut.

66:5.28 (748.9) 9. The governors of advanced tribal relations. This was the group intrusted with the work of bringing human society up to the level of statehood. Their chief was Tut.

Need juhid aitasid palju kaasa hõimudevaheliste abielude tekkimisele. Nad soodustasid abielu-eelset pikemaajalist põhjalikku tutvumist ja läbimõeldud abiellumist. Puhtvõitluslikke sõjatantse mahendati, et neil oleks väärtuslik sotsiaalne otstarve. Võeti kasutusele palju võistlusmänge, ent iidsed inimesed olid väga tõsised, kuna nende varajaste hõimude elus oli vähe huumorit. Planeedi mässu järgse hävingu käigus jäi neist tavadest vähe püsima.

66:5.29 (748.10) These leaders contributed much to bringing about intertribal marriages. They fostered courtship and marriage after due deliberation and full opportunity to become acquainted. The purely military war dances were refined and made to serve valuable social ends. Many competitive games were introduced, but these ancient folk were a serious people; little humor graced these early tribes. Few of these practices survived the subsequent disintegration of planetary insurrection.

Tut ja tema kaaslased töötasid selle nimel, et edendada rahumeelse iseloomuga rühmituste tekkimist ja muuta sõjapidamine inimlikumaks, kooskõlastada hõimudevahelisi suhteid ja täiustada hõimude juhtimist. Dalamatia ümbruses arenes välja kõrgem kultuur ja paremad ühiskondlikud suhted aitasid mõjutada ka kaugemaid hõime. Ent Vürsti keskuse tsivilisatsioonikord oli mujal arenevast barbaarsest ühiskonnast hoopis erinev, nii nagu Lõuna-Aafrikas Kaplinna kahekümnenda sajandi tsivilisatsioon erineb täielikult sellest põhja pool elavate väikesekasvuliste bušmanite algelisest kultuurist.

66:5.30 (749.1) Tut and his associates labored to promote group associations of a peaceful nature, to regulate and humanize warfare, to co-ordinate intertribal relations, and to improve tribal governments. In the vicinity of Dalamatia there developed a more advanced culture, and these improved social relations were very helpful in influencing more remote tribes. But the pattern of civilization prevailing at the Prince’s headquarters was quite different from the barbaric society evolving elsewhere, just as the twentieth-century society of Capetown, South Africa, is totally unlike the crude culture of the diminutive Bushmen to the north.

10. Hõimude koordineerimise ja rasside koostöö alane ülemkohus. Seda ülemnõukogu juhtis Van ja see oli ülejäänud üheksa inimtegevust juhendava erikomisjoni edasikaebamiskohus. Sellel nõukogul olid laialdased ülesanded, talle usaldati kõik maised probleemid, mida ei antud lahendada teistele rühmadele. Selle valitud korpuse kinnitasid ametisse Edentia Tähtkuju Isad, alles siis sai ta volitused võtta endale Urantia ülemkohtu ülesanded.

66:5.31 (749.2) 10. The supreme court of tribal co-ordination and racial co-operation. This supreme council was directed by Van and was the court of appeals for all of the other nine special commissions charged with the supervision of human affairs. This council was one of wide function, being intrusted with all matters of earthly concern which were not specifically assigned to the other groups. This selected corps had been approved by the Constellation Fathers of Edentia before they were authorized to assume the functions of the supreme court of Urantia.

6. Vürsti valitsemisaeg

6. The Prince’s Reign

Maailma kultuuritaset mõõdetakse tema põlisasukatest olendite sotsiaalse pärandiga ja kultuuri levimiskiirus sõltub täielikult selle maailma asukate võimest aru saada uutest ning edumeelsetest ideedest.

66:6.1 (749.3) The degree of a world’s culture is measured by the social heritage of its native beings, and the rate of cultural expansion is wholly determined by the ability of its inhabitants to comprehend new and advanced ideas.

Orjameelne traditsioonide järgimine, mineviku sentimentaalne sidumine olevikuga soodustab stabiilsust ja koostööd, kuid samas lämmatab algatusvõimet ja orjastab isiksuse loomevõimet. Caligastia sadakonna saabumise ajaks oli kogu maailmas traditsioonidest kantud ühiskondlike tavade tõttu tekkinud seisak ning nüüd hakati tolleaegsetes ühiskonnarühmades uut individuaalsete algatuste evangeeliumi kuulutama. Ent see soodne valitsemisaeg katkes nii kiiresti, et veel praegugi pole rassid tavade orjusest täielikult vabanenud: tavad valitsevad Urantial ikka veel liialt tugevalt.

66:6.2 (749.4) Slavery to tradition produces stability and co-operation by sentimentally linking the past with the present, but it likewise stifles initiative and enslaves the creative powers of the personality. The whole world was caught in the stalemate of tradition-bound mores when the Caligastia one hundred arrived and began the proclamation of the new gospel of individual initiative within the social groups of that day. But this beneficent rule was so soon interrupted that the races never have been wholly liberated from the slavery of custom; fashion still unduly dominates Urantia.

Caligastia sadakond — olendid, kes olid läbinud Satania eluasemeilmad — tundsid küll hästi Jerusemi kunste ja kultuuri, kuid primitiivsete inimolenditega asustatud barbaarsel planeedil on need teadmised peaaegu väärtusetud. Need targad olendid ei hakanud teostama järske muudatusi ega tolleaegsete primitiivsete rasside massilist ülendamist. Nad mõistsid täielikult inimliigi aeglase evolutsiooni vajalikkust ja hoidusid targalt igasugustest radikaalsetest katsetest inimese eluviisi muuta.

66:6.3 (749.5) The Caligastia one hundred — graduates of the Satania mansion worlds — well knew the arts and culture of Jerusem, but such knowledge is nearly valueless on a barbaric planet populated by primitive humans. These wise beings knew better than to undertake the sudden transformation, or the en masse uplifting, of the primitive races of that day. They well understood the slow evolution of the human species, and they wisely refrained from any radical attempts at modifying man’s mode of life on earth.

Kõik planeedi kümme komisjoni asusid aeglaselt ja loomulikult neile usaldatud valdkondi edendama. Nende kava kohaselt tuli leida ümbruskonna hõimudest helgeimad pead ja saata nad pärast koolitust sotsiaalse ülendamise saadikutena oma rahva juurde tagasi.

66:6.4 (749.6) Each of the ten planetary commissions set about slowly and naturally to advance the interests intrusted to them. Their plan consisted in attracting the best minds of the surrounding tribes and, after training them, sending them back to their people as emissaries of social uplift.

Rasside juurde ei lähetatud saadikuid kunagi väljastpoolt, kui rahvas seda ise otseselt ei taotlenud. Hõimu või rassi ülendamise ja edasiviimise nimel töötavad olendid pärinesid alati samast hõimust või rassist. Sadakond ei püüdnud isegi kõrgema rassi kombeid ja viise kunagi mõnele teisele hõimule peale sundida. Nad töötasid alati kannatlikult iga rassi ajaproovile vastu pidanud viiside ülendamise ja edendamise nimel. Urantia lihtrahvas ei toonud oma sotsiaalseid tavasid Dalamatiasse kaasa mitte nende vahetamiseks uute ja paremate vastu, vaid nende ülendamiseks kokkupuutes kõrgema kultuuriga ja lävimises kõrgema mõistusega. See oli aeglane, kuid väga tõhus protsess.

66:6.5 (749.7) Foreign emissaries were never sent to a race except upon the specific request of that people. Those who labored for the uplift and advancement of a given tribe or race were always natives of that tribe or race. The one hundred would not attempt to impose the habits and mores of even a superior race upon another tribe. Always they patiently worked to uplift and advance the time-tried mores of each race. The simple folk of Urantia brought their social customs to Dalamatia, not to exchange them for new and better practices, but to have them uplifted by contact with a higher culture and by association with superior minds. The process was slow but very effectual.

Dalamatia õpetajad püüdsid lisada bioloogilise arengu puhtlooduslikule valikule teadlikku sotsiaalset valikut. Nad ei tekitanud inimühiskonnas segadust, vaid kiirendasid tunduvalt selle normaalset ja loomulikku arengut. Nende eesmärgiks oli edenemine evolutsiooni kaudu, mitte ilmutuse abil toimuv murrang. Inimsool oli kulunud oma vähese religiooni ja moraali omandamiseks ajastuid ja need üliinimesed hoidusid targasti röövimast inimkonnalt neid väheseidki edusamme selle segaduse ja nördimusega, mis tekib alati, kui valgustatud ja kõrgemad olendid hakkavad ülendama mahajäänud rasse liigse õpetamise ja valgustamisega.

66:6.6 (750.1) The Dalamatia teachers sought to add conscious social selection to the purely natural selection of biologic evolution. They did not derange human society, but they did markedly accelerate its normal and natural evolution. Their motive was progression by evolution and not revolution by revelation. The human race had spent ages in acquiring the little religion and morals it had, and these supermen knew better than to rob mankind of these few advances by the confusion and dismay which always result when enlightened and superior beings undertake to uplift the backward races by overteaching and overenlightenment.

Kui kristlikud misjonärid lähevad Aafrika südamesse, kus pojad ja tütred peavad jääma kogu vanemate eluea jooksul nende juhtida ja suunata, tekitavad nad ainult segadust ja õõnestavad üldist autoriteeti, kui püüavad ühe põlvkonnaga seda tava välja tõrjuda, õpetades, et lapsed tuleks pärast kahekümne ühe aastaseks saamist kõigist vanematepoolsetest piirangutest vabastada.

66:6.7 (750.2) When Christian missionaries go into the heart of Africa, where sons and daughters are supposed to remain under the control and direction of their parents throughout the lifetime of the parents, they only bring about confusion and the breakdown of all authority when they seek, in a single generation, to supplant this practice by teaching that these children should be free from all parental restraint after they have attained the age of twenty-one.

7. Elu Dalamatias

7. Life in Dalamatia

Vürsti keskus oli küll ülikaunis ja kujundatud nii, et tolleaegsetes ürginimestes austust äratada, kuid tegelikult tagasihoidlik. Hooned polnud eriti suured, sest nende väljastpoolt toodud õpetajate eesmärgiks oli ikkagi põllumajanduse arengu soodustamine loomakasvatuse kasutuselevõtmise teel. Linnamüüride vahel oli piisavalt maad, et ligikaudu kakskümmend tuhat elanikku oleksid saanud loomi karjatada ja aiandusega tegelda.

66:7.1 (750.3) The Prince’s headquarters, though exquisitely beautiful and designed to awe the primitive men of that age, was altogether modest. The buildings were not especially large as it was the motive of these imported teachers to encourage the eventual development of agriculture through the introduction of animal husbandry. The land provision within the city walls was sufficient to provide for pasturage and gardening for the support of a population of about twenty thousand.

Keskne palveldamistempel ja üliinimestest juhendajarühmade kümme nõukoguhoonet olid seestpoolt tõesti kaunid kunstiteosed. Ja kuigi elamud olid eeskujulikult korras ning puhtad, oli kõik, võrreldes hilisemate aegadega, väga lihtne ja isegi algeline. Selles kultuuri keskuses ei rakendatud mingeid Urantiale loomupäraselt võõraid meetodeid.

66:7.2 (750.4) The interiors of the central temple of worship and the ten council mansions of the supervising groups of supermen were indeed beautiful works of art. And while the residential buildings were models of neatness and cleanliness, everything was very simple and altogether primitive in comparison with later-day developments. At this headquarters of culture no methods were employed which did not naturally belong on Urantia.

Vürsti kehastunud kaaskond elas lihtsates näidiskodudes, mis pidid maailma sotsiaalses ja hariduskeskuses viibivaid õpilasi ja vaatlejaid innustama ja neile soodsa mulje jätma.

66:7.3 (750.5) The Prince’s corporeal staff presided over simple and exemplary abodes which they maintained as homes designed to inspire and favorably impress the student observers sojourning at the world’s social center and educational headquarters.

Perekonnaelu kindel kord ja komme, et pere elab suhteliselt paikselt eraldi elamus, pärinevadki neist Dalamatia aegadest ning kujunesid täielikult välja sadakonna ja nende õpilaste eeskuju ning õpetuste järgi. Kodu kui sotsiaalne üksus saavutas edu siiski alles siis, kui Dalamatia üliinimestest mehed ja naised ajendasid inimkonda oma lapselapsi ja lapselapselapsi armastama ning nende tulevikku planeerima. Metsinimene armastab oma last, kuid tsiviliseeritud inimene armastab ka oma lapselast.

66:7.4 (750.6) The definite order of family life and the living of one family together in one residence of comparatively settled location date from these times of Dalamatia and were chiefly due to the example and teachings of the one hundred and their pupils. The home as a social unit never became a success until the supermen and superwomen of Dalamatia led mankind to love and plan for their grandchildren and their grandchildren’s children. Savage man loves his child, but civilized man loves also his grandchild.

Vürsti kaaskond elas koos isade ja emadena. Neil ei olnud, tõsi küll, omaenda lapsi, kuid Dalamatia viiekümnes näidiskodus ei elanud kunagi vähem kui viissada väikest kasulast, kes olid sinna koondatud Andoni ja sangikrasside kõrgematest peredest. Paljud neist lastest olid orvud. Neile sai osaks nende kõrgemate kasuvanemate heatahtlik distsipliin ja koolitus; pärast kolmeaastast viibimist Vürsti koolides, kuhu nad astusid 13-15-aastastena, oli neil õigus abielluda ja nad olid valmis lähetuseks Vürsti saadikuna oma rassi abivajavate hõimude juurde.

66:7.5 (750.7) The Prince’s staff lived together as fathers and mothers. True, they had no children of their own, but the fifty pattern homes of Dalamatia never sheltered less than five hundred adopted little ones assembled from the superior families of the Andonic and Sangik races; many of these children were orphans. They were favored with the discipline and training of these superparents; and then, after three years in the schools of the Prince (they entered from thirteen to fifteen), they were eligible for marriage and ready to receive their commissions as emissaries of the Prince to the needy tribes of their respective races.

Fad vastutas Dalamatia õppekava eest, mida viidi läbi ametikooli vormis, kus õpilased õppisid töö ja igapäevaste kasulike ülesannete kaudu. Selles hariduskavas ei jäetud arvestamata iseloomu arendamiseks vajalikku mõtlemist ja tundeid, kuid tööõpetusel oli esmajärguline tähtsus. Õpetamine toimus individuaalselt ja kollektiivselt. Õpetajateks olid nii mehed kui ka naised, samuti mees ja naine koos. Pool sellest rühmaõppest toimus meestele ja naistele eraldi, pool mõlemale sugupoolele koos. Individuaalselt õpetati tööosavust, rühmades või klassides aga seltsimist. Õpilasi juhendati suhtlema vennalikult endast nooremate ja vanemate rühmadega ning täiskasvanutega, samuti tegema koostööd omavanustega. Neile tutvustati ka selliseid ühendusi nagu perekonnarühmad, mängusalgad ja kooliklassid.

66:7.6 (751.1) Fad sponsored the Dalamatia plan of teaching that was carried out as an industrial school in which the pupils learned by doing, and through which they worked their way by the daily performance of useful tasks. This plan of education did not ignore thinking and feeling in the development of character; but it gave first place to manual training. The instruction was individual and collective. The pupils were taught by both men and women and by the two acting conjointly. One half of this group instruction was by sexes; the other half was coeducational. Students were taught manual dexterity as individuals and were socialized in groups or classes. They were trained to fraternize with younger groups, older groups, and adults, as well as to do teamwork with those of their own ages. They were also familiarized with such associations as family groups, play squads, and school classes.

Hiljem oli nende õpilaste hulgas, keda koolitati Mesopotaamias oma rassiga töötama, nii andoniite Lääne-India mägismaadelt kui ka punaste ja siniste inimeste esindajaid; veel hiljem võeti vastu ka väike rühm kollase rassi esindajaid.

66:7.7 (751.2) Among the later students trained in Mesopotamia for work with their respective races were Andonites from the highlands of western India together with representatives of the red men and the blue men; still later a small number of the yellow race were also received.

Hap andis varastele rassidele moraaliõpetuse. See koodeks sai nimeks „Isa tee” ja koosnes seitsmest käsust.

66:7.8 (751.3) Hap presented the early races with a moral law. This code was known as “The Father’s Way” and consisted of the following seven commands:

1. Sa ei tohi karta ega teenida ühtki teist Jumalat peale kõige Isa.

66:7.9 (751.4) 1. You shall not fear nor serve any God but the Father of all.

2. Sa ei tohi Isa Poja, maailmavalitseja suhtes sõnakuulmatu olla ega näidata üles lugupidamatust tema üleinimlike kaaslaste suhtes.

66:7.10 (751.5) 2. You shall not disobey the Father’s Son, the world’s ruler, nor show disrespect to his superhuman associates.

3. Sa ei tohi valetada, kui sind kutsutakse rahva kohtunike ette.

66:7.11 (751.6) 3. You shall not speak a lie when called before the judges of the people.

4. Sa ei tohi tappa mehi, naisi ega lapsi.

66:7.12 (751.7) 4. You shall not kill men, women, or children.

5. Sa ei tohi varastada oma naabri vara ega kariloomi.

66:7.13 (751.8) 5. You shall not steal your neighbor’s goods or cattle.

6. Sa ei tohi puudutada oma sõbra naist.

66:7.14 (751.9) 6. You shall not touch your friend’s wife.

7. Sa ei tohi olla lugupidamatu oma vanemate ega eakamate hõimuliikmete vastu.

66:7.15 (751.10) 7. You shall not show disrespect to your parents or to the elders of the tribe.

Selline oli Dalamatia seadus peaaegu kolmsada tuhat aastat. Ja paljud neist kividest, millele see seadus oli kirjutatud, on nüüd Mesopotaamia ja Pärsia ranniku ääres vee all. Tavaks sai igal nädalapäeval üht neist käskudest austada, kasutades seda tervitamiseks ja söögi ajal tänamiseks.

66:7.16 (751.11) This was the law of Dalamatia for almost three hundred thousand years. And many of the stones on which this law was inscribed now lie beneath the waters off the shores of Mesopotamia and Persia. It became the custom to hold one of these commands in mind for each day of the week, using it for salutations and mealtime thanksgiving.

Aega mõõdeti sünoodiliste kuudega, mille pikkuseks oli kakskümmend kaheksa päeva. See oli koos päeva ja öö arvestusega ainus ajaarvamine, mida varased rahvad tundsid. Seitsmepäevase nädala võtsid kasutusele Dalamatia õpetajad, sest seitse oli üks neljandik kahekümne kaheksast. Number seitsme tähtsus superuniversumis andis neile kahtlemata võimaluse lülitada levinud ajaarvestusse vaimne meeldetuletus. Kuid nädala pikkusel polnud mingit loomulikku päritolu.

66:7.17 (751.12) The time measurement of these days was the lunar month, this period being reckoned as twenty-eight days. That, with the exception of day and night, was the only time reckoning known to the early peoples. The seven-day week was introduced by the Dalamatia teachers and grew out of the fact that seven was one fourth of twenty-eight. The significance of the number seven in the superuniverse undoubtedly afforded them opportunity to introduce a spiritual reminder into the common reckoning of time. But there is no natural origin for the weekly period.

Linna ümbritsev maa oli saja kuuekümne kilomeetri raadiuses üsna tihedalt asustatud. Kohe linna ümber tegelesid sajad Vürsti koolide lõpetanud loomakasvatusega ja rakendasid ellu muid Vürsti kaaskonnalt ja nende arvukatelt inimestest abilistelt saadud õpetusi. Mõned tegelesid ka põllumajanduse ja taimekasvatusega.

66:7.18 (751.13) The country around the city was quite well settled within a radius of one hundred miles. Immediately surrounding the city, hundreds of graduates of the Prince’s schools engaged in animal husbandry and otherwise carried out the instruction they had received from his staff and their numerous human helpers. A few engaged in agriculture and horticulture.

Põllutööd ei määratud inimkonnale karistuseks oletatava patu eest. „Oma palge higis pead sa põldude vilja sööma” ei olnud mitte karistav kohtuotsus inimese osalemise pärast Luciferi mässu meeletustes reeturliku Caligastia juhtimisel. Maaharimisel on edasiliikuva tsivilisatsiooni sisseseadmisel arenevates maailmades oma osa ning see käsk oli Planeedivürsti ja kogu tema kaaskonna õpetuses kesksel kohal kogu selle kolmesaja tuhande aastase perioodi jooksul, alates nende saabumisest Urantiale kuni traagiliste päevadeni, mil Caligastia asus mässulise Luciferi poolele. Mullatöö ei ole needus; see on pigem kõrgeim õnnistus kõigile neile, keda lubatakse selliselt nautida kõige inimlikumat inimtegevust.

66:7.19 (751.14) Mankind was not consigned to agricultural toil as the penalty of supposed sin. “In the sweat of your face shall you eat the fruit of the fields” was not a sentence of punishment pronounced because of man’s participation in the follies of the Lucifer rebellion under the leadership of the traitorous Caligastia. The cultivation of the soil is inherent in the establishment of an advancing civilization on the evolutionary worlds, and this injunction was the center of all teaching of the Planetary Prince and his staff throughout the three hundred thousand years which intervened between their arrival on Urantia and those tragic days when Caligastia threw in his lot with the rebel Lucifer. Work with the soil is not a curse; rather is it the highest blessing to all who are thus permitted to enjoy the most human of all human activities.

Mässu puhkedes oli Dalamatias kohalikke elanikke peaaegu kuus tuhat. See arv hõlmas ka regulaarselt linna külastavaid õpilasi, kuid mitte muid külalisi ega vaatlejaid, keda oli alati üle tuhande. Kuid vaevalt suudate te endale ette kujutada neil kaugetel aegadel toimunud imelist progressi; peaaegu kõik inimese suurepärased saavutused pühiti olematuks kohutava segaduse ja täieliku vaimupimedusega, mis järgnes Caligastia reeturlikkusest ja mässust põhjustatud katastroofile.

66:7.20 (752.1) At the outbreak of the rebellion, Dalamatia had a resident population of almost six thousand. This number includes the regular students but does not embrace the visitors and observers, who always numbered more than one thousand. But you can have little or no concept of the marvelous progress of those faraway times; practically all of the wonderful human gains of those days were wiped out by the horrible confusion and abject spiritual darkness which followed the Caligastia catastrophe of deception and sedition.

8. Caligastia ebaõnnestumine

8. Misfortunes of Caligastia

Caligastia pikale elule tagasi vaadates leiame tema käitumises vaid ühe silmatorkava joone, mis oleks võinud tähelepanu äratada: ta oli ülimalt enesekeskne. Ta kaldus pooldama peaaegu kõiki protestijaid ja tundis tavaliselt kaasa neile, kes leebelt väljendasid varjatud kriitikat. Selle kalduvuse varajast ilmnemist võib pidada rahulolematuseks kellelegi allumise suhtes, kergeks vastumeelsuseks igasuguse juhendamise suhtes. Pannes endast kõrgemate nõuandeid veidi pahaks ja olemata nende võimu all rahul, oli ta siiski katsumustes alati universumivalitsejatele ustavaks jäänud ja Tähtkujude Isade korraldustele kuuletunud. Tal ei leitud kunagi ühtki tõelist eksimust kuni ajani, mil ta Urantia häbiväärselt reetis.

66:8.1 (752.2) In looking back over the long career of Caligastia, we find only one outstanding feature of his conduct that might have challenged attention; he was ultraindividualistic. He was inclined to take sides with almost every party of protest, and he was usually sympathetic with those who gave mild expression to implied criticism. We detect the early appearance of this tendency to be restless under authority, to mildly resent all forms of supervision. While slightly resentful of senior counsel and somewhat restive under superior authority, nonetheless, whenever a test had come, he had always proved loyal to the universe rulers and obedient to the mandates of the Constellation Fathers. No real fault was ever found in him up to the time of his shameful betrayal of Urantia.

Tuleb märkida, et nii Luciferi kui ka Caligastiat oli kannatlikult õpetatud ja armastavalt hoiatatud nende kritiseerimiskalduvuse ja eneseuhkuse kasvu ning sellega kaasneva enese ületähtsustamistunde eest. Kuid kõiki abistamiskatseid olid nemad tõlgendanud soovimatu kriitikana ja põhjendamatu sekkumisena isikuvabadusse. Nii Caligastia kui ka Lucifer arvasid, et nende sõbralikke nõuandjaid ajendasid väga laiduväärsed motiivid, mis hakkasid nende oma moondunud mõtlemise ja mõtlematute plaanide üle ülekaalu saavutama. Nad otsustasid oma isetute nõuandjate üle omaenda areneva isekuse põhjal.

66:8.2 (752.3) It should be noted that both Lucifer and Caligastia had been patiently instructed and lovingly warned respecting their critical tendencies and the subtle development of their pride of self and its associated exaggeration of the feeling of self-importance. But all of these attempts to help had been misconstrued as unwarranted criticism and as unjustified interference with personal liberties. Both Caligastia and Lucifer judged their friendly advisers as being actuated by the very reprehensible motives which were beginning to dominate their own distorted thinking and misguided planning. They judged their unselfish advisers by their own evolving selfishness.

Alates Vürst Caligastia saabumisest liikus planeedi tsivilisatsioon peaaegu kolmesaja tuhande aasta jooksul üsna normaalselt edasi. Kuigi Urantia oli elu teisendamise sfäär ja seetõttu toimus sealses arengus arvukalt kõrvalekaldeid ja ebatavalisi episoode, liikus ta oma planeedi-elujärgus kuni Luciferi mässuni ja Caligastia samaaegse reetmiseni üsna rahuldavalt edasi. See katastroofiline väärsamm, samuti Aadama ja Eeva hilisem loobumine oma missiooni täitmisest planeedil on mõjutanud kindlasti kogu järgnevat ajalugu.

66:8.3 (752.4) From the arrival of Prince Caligastia, planetary civilization progressed in a fairly normal manner for almost three hundred thousand years. Aside from being a life-modification sphere and therefore subject to numerous irregularities and unusual episodes of evolutionary fluctuation, Urantia progressed very satisfactorily in its planetary career up to the times of the Lucifer rebellion and the concurrent Caligastia betrayal. All subsequent history has been definitely modified by this catastrophic blunder as well as by the later failure of Adam and Eve to fulfill their planetary mission.

Urantia Vürst astus Luciferi mässu ajal pimedusse, vallandades sellega planeedil pikaajalise segaduse. Seejärel võeti temalt tähtkuju valitsejate ja universumi teiste valitsusvõimude ühisaktsiooniga suveräänne võim. Kuni Aadama saabumiseni planeedile tabasid teda isoleeritud Urantia paratamatud elumuutused ning ta aitas omalt poolt kaasa selle kava nurjumisele, millega sooviti surelikke rasse ülendada uue violetse rassi — Aadama ja Eeva järglaste eluvere sissevalamisega.

66:8.4 (752.5) The Prince of Urantia went into darkness at the time of the Lucifer rebellion, thus precipitating the long confusion of the planet. He was subsequently deprived of sovereign authority by the co-ordinate action of the constellation rulers and other universe authorities. He shared the inevitable vicissitudes of isolated Urantia down to the time of Adam’s sojourn on the planet and contributed something to the miscarriage of the plan to uplift the mortal races through the infusion of the lifeblood of the new violet race — the descendants of Adam and Eve.

Langenud Vürsti võimu inimeste tegevuste häirimisel kärpis üsna palju Machiventa Melkisedeki surelik kehastumine Aabrahami ajal; seejärel, Miikaeli kehalise elu ajal, võeti reetlikult Vürstilt lõpuks igasugune võim Urantial.

66:8.5 (753.1) The power of the fallen Prince to disturb human affairs was enormously curtailed by the mortal incarnation of Machiventa Melchizedek in the days of Abraham; and subsequently, during the life of Michael in the flesh, this traitorous Prince was finally shorn of all authority on Urantia.

Doktriinil isikulisest kuradist Urantial oli küll veidi alust reeturliku ja nurjatu Caligastia näol, kuid õpetus, et „kurat” võib mõjutada normaalset inimmeelt vastu tema loomulikku valikuvabadust, oli ometi täiesti väljamõeldud. Ka enne Miikaeli annetumist Urantial ei suutnud Caligastia ja Daligastia kunagi surelikke alla suruda ega veenda ühtki normaalset indiviidi tegema midagi inimtahte vastaselt. Inimese vaba tahe on moraalsetes küsimustes ülim, isegi sisimas elav Mõttekohandaja ei sunni inimest mõtlema ainsatki mõtet või sooritama ainsatki tegu inimese enda tahte vastaselt.

66:8.6 (753.2) The doctrine of a personal devil on Urantia, though it had some foundation in the planetary presence of the traitorous and iniquitous Caligastia, was nevertheless wholly fictitious in its teachings that such a “devil” could influence the normal human mind against its free and natural choosing. Even before Michael’s bestowal on Urantia, neither Caligastia nor Daligastia was ever able to oppress mortals or to coerce any normal individual into doing anything against the human will. The free will of man is supreme in moral affairs; even the indwelling Thought Adjuster refuses to compel man to think a single thought or to perform a single act against the choosing of man’s own will.

Nüüd ootab see maailma mässaja, kes on ilma jäetud igasugusest võimust oma endisi alamaid kahjustada, Uversa Päevilt Vanade lõplikku kohtuotsust kõigi Luciferi mässus osalenute üle.

66:8.7 (753.3) And now this rebel of the realm, shorn of all power to harm his former subjects, awaits the final adjudication, by the Uversa Ancients of Days, of all who participated in the Lucifer rebellion.
