81:6.28 At first life was a struggle for existence; now, for a standard of living; next it will be for quality of thinking, the coming earthly goal of human existence.
Few channels of media currently influence the “quality of thinking” as much as the internet. Presently, information found within the Urantia Book is modestly represented throughout the internet by diverse, individual expressions that range from professionally produced movies to do-it- yourself, voice recordings. This growing media output suggests that the revelators might have envisioned a role for technology to play in spreading the revelation.
As world culture increasingly embraces communication through technology, those of us who understand its use have an opportunity to reach out to existing and prospective audiences through a unified approach – The Urantia Book Network.
What is the Urantia Book Network?
The Urantia Book Network (UBN) is a not-for-
profit, collective that connects the creative,
educational, and technological resources
inspired by and aligned with the teachings in the Urantia Book.
The Urantia Book Network:
Produces consistent, social media outreach content through a studio located at the Urantia Foundation
• The unifying hub that visually pays respect to the hard
work of past service for the revelation, the growing unification of Urantia book outreach in the present, and maintains a sustainable platform that reflects truth, beauty, and goodness into the future
• A viral marketing practice through facebook, youtube, etc
UBN Links empirical findings to the information in the Urantia Book
• Provides context for the evidence that science and
history have uncovered, thereby filling in the blanks
that our planet faces as a result of rebellion
• Opens new opportunities for further academic
research through documentaries and special interest pieces that bring the teachings of the UB into a modern dialogue. The University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute holds great potential regarding historical correlation between Part3 of the UB and current findings in Mesopotamia (Sumer, Elam, Egypt, Turkey, Iran)
Preserves Urantia-based activities
• Gathers, reports, streams, and archives Urantia-based events from the past, today, and in the future
• Provides a studio for fellow UB readers who wish to
collaborate on productions. (Richard Jernigan, David Kantor, etc...) and for young readers aspiring to learn the production and journalism field, assist in research, web/graphic design, and marketing.
How does UBN work?
The Urantia Book Network
collaborates with existing
organizations to unify,
integrate, and archive their
work. This partnership allows
the Urantia community a
wider view of the efforts
underway to share the Urantia Book teachings.
What does it take to make this happen?
Investment in equipment, resources, and effort can come from multiple sources already interested in the dissemination of Urantia Book truths and who are searching for a more professional and technically relevant means of outreach. Imagine the potential of being able to gather, create, share, learn, and grow as a unified network of many unique individuals who share similar goals.
