Life is both mechanistic and vitalistic, i.e. material and spiritual.


Ever will the Urantia scientists progress in their understanding of the basic protoplasmic forms

of vegetable and animal life but never will they be able to produce living organism, because life

is something different from all energy manifestations; even the material life of physical creatures

is not inherent in matter.


Material things may enjoy an independent existence, but life springs only from life.

Spirit takes origin only from its spirit ancestors and, therefore, mind can be derived only from

the pre-existent mind.


Humans or other creatures may produce only the “forms of life”, but only a creator personality

or a creative force can supply the activating living spark.




Life on a barren planet does not appear spontaneously in the universes and the presence of Life Carriers is required for its planetary initiation.


On Urantia Life Carriers have organized life patterns after they have arrived on the planet in accordance with the formulas previously approved for a new life establishment on this world by their superiors from the local universe headquarters.


When in accordance with the approved formulas the physical patterns have been provided, then the Life Carriers catalyze this lifeless physical material, imparting through their persons the vital spark, and forthwith the inert physical patterns become vivified living matter.


The vital spark, the vital mystery of life, is bestowed through Life Carriers by local universe Mother Spirit. The Life Carriers do formulate the life plasma and supervise the life spark implementation supplied by the local universe Mother Spirit of Wholeness, i.e. “Holy Spirit”, which vivifies lifeless physical substance and the cosmic plasma within.


At such times the Life Carriers start the required revolutions within matter in accordance with

the physical, chemical and electrical specifications of the ordained patterns and plans, and

transmit the spark of life to the central physical ultimatons or PUMAs, which becomes enlivened ego-center of its cellular soul-body, and begins to activate and expand its cellular mind.




It has been previously stated that the prerequisites for the life appearance on any barren planet are the existence of PUMAs and the pre-mindal inorganic physical elements organized from PUMAs by the Physical Controllers (PCs).

PCs work in conjunction with the active life ministration  of the ordained Life Carriers and the mind impartation ministry of seven adjutant mind spirits of Holy Spirit of the local universe mother-the Divine Minister, the daughter of the Infinite Spirit of Paradise Trinity- the Conjoint Actor of Paradise 3rd Source and Center.


As the presence of the Power Centers and their associated PCs has conditioned the

appearance of the universe inorganic elements of matter, so does the integrated function

of the PCs, Life Carriers (LCs), Divine Minister and the adjutant mind spirits (AMSs) condition the organic life evolution on barren planets and the purposeful course of the planetary life evolutionary pro-creation.


The first such biological electrochemical unit of life on Urantia was the marine energy electrochemical circuit which communally associated various chemical, electrical and other basic energies of and around the central physical ultimaton or PUMA, through which the first primordial reactions of the material physical life were introduced by Life Carriers catalytic presences agitating, organizing and vitalizing otherwise inert elements of the physical matter.




Life Carriers can organize the material forms, or physical patterns of living beings, but only

the Spirit of Universe Mother can provide the initial spark of life and bestowal of the mind

endowment in the living creature.

Also, the living forms of experimental life which the Life Carriers initially organize on their

Salvington worlds are always devoid of reproductive powers. When the life formulas and the

vital patterns are correctly assembled and properly organized, the presence of a Life Carrier

is sufficient to initiate life, but all such living organisms are lacking in two essential attributes

- mind endowment and reproductive powers.


Animal mind and human mind are gifts of the local universe Mother Spirit, functioning

through  the seven adjutant mind-spirits, while creature ability to reproduce is the specific

and personal impartation of the Universe Mother Spirit to the ancestral life plasma

inaugurated by the Life Carriers.


When the Life Carriers have organized the energy systems and designed the patterns

of life, then the lifeless forms are vivified through the impartation of the “BREATH OF LIFE”,

the life impulse sent from the local universe Mother’s Spirit life force.


When the bestowed life cycle of the constructed material form is exhausted, then the

life flame” is withdrawn and the material body becomes again lifeless or “dead” matter.

Therefore, a physical body, as the “visible” form of the associated energy-matter of that

creature, only serves as a transient vehicle for that particular creature life endowment. 


The life bestowed upon plants and animals by the Life Carriers does not return to them upon

the death of PLANT or ANIMAL.The departing life of such a living thing does not yet possess

either the identity or the personality, being only part of the GROUP SOUL, and as such does

not individually survive the “death”. During its group existence and the time of its sojourn in

the physical form or “body” it has undergone a change in the energy evolution of its group soul

and it survives only as a part of these cosmic “group forces” until its mind evolves sufficiently

to qualify for its individualization from a higher animal into a human form.


HUMAN mortal creature represents the individualized cosmic life force, or INDIVIDUALIZED

SOUL, which needs to “earn” its status as the immortality candidate. This is wholly predicated

upon the sufficient evolution of its mortal mind to begin sufficiently to interact with its indwelling Paradise Father I AM immortal spirit fragment- the Thought Adjuster or Mystery Monitor.

(Reader should not confuse the phenomena of “death” or TRANSITION of solar mortal physical

body in the planetary evolutionary physical realm of the 3rd time-space blanket (or # 3 “ether”),

with the phenomena of TRANSLATION of the soul, which has completed its mortal ascending

career in the evolutionary 3rd space physical energy realm, and is being now translated from the

#1 sub-ether of # 3 physical ether, into the “next above” morontial, immortal and created local

system worlds of the 2nd time-space quasi-physical energy realm (# 2 space morontial “ether”).




It is the presence of the seven adjutant mind- spirits on the primitive evolutionary worlds

that condition the course of the organic planetary evolution.

These adjutants represent the function of the mind ministry of the Infinite Spirit which is

extended to the lower orders of the intelligent evolutionary life through the operations of

a local universe Mother Spirit.

The mind spirit adjutants are the children of the Universe Mother Spirit and constitute her

personal ministry to the material minds of the realms. The adjutants names are the equivalents of  their designations, such as intuition, courage, knowledge, counsel, worship and wisdom, and their influence is of the differential urge, each seeking its receptivity capacity and manifestation of the influenced creature upon their mind spirit stimuli.

As already indicated in the Paper 11 the adjutants central lodgments are on the Life Carrier

Headquarters, the LC world # 1, where the Life Carrier supervisors monitor the extent and

quality of adjutant mind function on any world and in any given living intelligent organism.

The function of the adjutants has been already discussed in more details in Paper 7.


The adjutant spirit of wisdom is the highest of all adjutants and it is the secret of the inborn

urge of mind creatures to seek survival in their evolutionary ascension utilizing coordination

of all of their past experience and present opportunities. Wisdom is the acme of the intellectual performance and the goal of the purely mental and moral existence.




The first such primordial cellular forms of life were initially wholly responsive only to the influences of the physical, chemical and electrical energies of its outer environment.

As the scale of life ascended, one by one the mind ministries of the seven adjutant spirits became operative in such life forms, and their evolutionary minds became increasingly adjustable, creative, coordinated and dominative in response to the “outer” forces of natures life and the “inner” spirit forces of light stimulating their mindal enlightenment.


So, the evolution of the organismal mind, with its ability to learn, memorize and act has developed as the differential response in its experiential choosing between the influences of the inner spiritual ministry or “inner good” and the influences of its outer planetary physical environment- the nature and its inhabitants, also called “outer evil” (physical energy veil), hindering planetary creature’s ascension on its journey back to its Paradise destination.
