HOW WERE THE MASTER UNIVERSE POSTERS RECEIVED
They were conceived through the collaborative efforts of several individuals, each with their own unique skills, and each having received one or more revelations regarding the subject at hand. These revelations were thoroughly analyzed and vetted, and rendered into the collection of Master Universe posters that is now at your disposal. It should be noted that some of the information contained on the posters was extracted from the Urantia Book, and that the depiction of the Master Universe closely follows the descriptions given in the Urantia Book.
WHO ARE THE MASTER UNIVERSE POSTERS FOR?
They are for everyone, but it will be of tremendous help if you first read the Urantia Book (parts 1 and 2) to familiarize yourself with the concepts and terms used in these posters. The posters also work well as companion reference material when reading the Urantia Book. Those without Urantia Book knowledge who still wish to study these posters should at least read the Forward section of the Urantia Book as it defines the main concepts used in the posters.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE MASTER UNIVERSE POSTERS?
The posters are composed of schematics and descriptive text about universe design concepts, principles, and functions. The goal of this educational artwork is to stimulate the mind by revealing a bit of the infinite cosmos with simple and uncluttered drawings designed to bring out some of the broader concepts used to create and sustain our marvelous universe, and to ultimately bring the student to a broader and deeper understanding of the Creator of all things, our Great God the Universal Father, by sharing with you some Truth Beauty and Goodness.
HOW IS THE COLLECTION OF MASTER UNIVERSE POSTERS ORGANIZED?
Some of the posters naturally share a certain theme, like the three Paradise posters. Some follow a certain sequence or timeline, such as the Origin, Destiny, Circuits, and Beyond posters which flow from one to the other in that order, and some are stand alone posters. The Master Universe collection of educational posters currently consists of the following titles, and are listed below according to their logical groupings. An alternate reading order is also suggested at the end.
This poster takes a look at some of the major design features and dynamics of the Master Universe that will be frequently referenced in the remaining posters.
The magnificent creation referred to as the Master Universe had a beginning. This poster explores the Eternity before creation began then looks into the far distant past at the beginning of time and the gradual expansion of the Master Universe to the present.
Continuing with the theme set in the Origin poster, this poster picks up in the present and looks forward into the far distant future when the Master Universe will become a perfected creation.
The Master Universe is a creation of the greatest mind there is, and as such displays many mind patterns and circuits. This poster offers a magnificent view into the far distant future at the completion of the Master Universe and the phenomenal mind circuitry that connects it all together to the central Source.
Once the Master Universe has been perfected the act of creation still marches on. This poster picks up after the completion of the original Master Universe and examines the tremendous expansion plan to create a gigantic Macro Master Universe, the pattern of which will eventually be replicated into infinity.
This poster takes a closer look at some of the major features of the Master Universe in its present and completed stages.
The Central Isle of Paradise is the perfect home of the Creator and the foundation of the Master Universe. Its basic design and purpose is explored in this poster.
The Central Isle of Paradise is also the primary destination of all God loving beings. This poster offers a glimpse at how Paradise is accessed and protected.
Immediately surrounding the Central Isle of Paradise is the perfect Central Universe of Havona with its 1 billion perfect spheres. An overview of this perfect creation is offered in this poster.
Paradise may be the center of all things but what powers it? What drives it? What is at the heart of it all? The answer is the Heart of God which lies at the very center and inner core of the enormous Central Isle of Paradise. This poster will take you on an astounding journey to the very Heart of Paradise as well as offer more insights into that great phenomenon known as Space Respiration.
Paradise is at the center of everything and patterns are an essential aspect of most things. Without patterns there could hardly be a Creation. A startling look at patterns and their connection to human life is presented in this poster.
There are many functional aspects to the Master Universe and none are more integral than the role Deity plays in its successful operation and growth. This poster explains how the major Deity roles and functions come together to create a stupendous mechanism designed to ensure the successful growth and eventual perfection of the Master Universe.
Continuing with the theme of the first Deity Mechanism poster, part II delves deeper into Deity functions and relationships.
One of the most amazing functions of the Master Universe is its ability to expand and contract through a mechanism called Space Respiration. This poster explores some of the basic aspects of this fascinating 1 billion year long process.
We live on an evolutionary planet, but there is another type of planet in the universe known as architectural spheres. These are custom built planets intended primarily for universe administration and education, and there are billions of them. This poster explores the dimensions of these immense and glorious spheres and offers a glimpse into the type of life and activities they support.

A WORD ABOUT THE DRAWING STYLE USED IN SOME POSTERS
Due to lack of space on the Destiny and Details posters the completed Outer Space Zone 5 (OSZ 5) is displayed using a flattened rendition as it wraps around the other space zones. For a complete and more accurate rendition of the spherical shape of the completed OSZ 5 refer to the Master Universe – Circuits poster.
TIPS FOR PRINTING THE MASTER UNIVERSE POSTERS
The Master Universe posters were professionally designed with high quality printing in mind. Every reasonable effort was made to ensure that they will print successfully, but it is impossible to do print testing for every possible situation. Therefore the posters are offered without guarantee.
Here are a few things we learned from making our own prints. The posters can be viewed and read comfortably when printed as small as tabloid size (roughly 17 by 11 inches or 432 by 279 mm). We do not recommend printing smaller than tabloid size. The posters are scalable PDF files, and can be printed as large as your PDF software and printer will support.
WILL MORE MASTERR UNIVERSE POSTERS BE CREATED
While anything is possible, the Master Universe posters design team has been informed that the goal of the Master Universe revelation has been achieved with the publishing and free distribution of these 15 diagrams.
TIPS FOR UNDERSTANDING THE MASTER UNIVERSE POSTERS
Please keep the following in mind while enjoying these beautiful and thought provoking posters. The Master Universe is so vast and complex that it is impossible to portray what it contains in great detail with the current state of human technology. Some of the posters contain new revelations that have only come to light after the Urantia Book was published, so they deal with certain concepts not yet found in the Urantia Book.
While the Spirit revelators and their human collaborators have made every effort to be as accurate and forthcoming as possible in the creation of these diagrams and texts, there are limitations inherent in the media and techniques used. For example, if the Master Universe were drawn to scale with the Isle of Paradise depicted as 1 centimeter in diameter, then the diameter of the Master Universe to the outer edges of Outer Space Zone 4 would be about 150 meters across! Such scale simply cannot fit on a 76 x 53 cm canvas. Many simplifications had to be made in order to create suitable presentations at a usable size. Also, some new English terms had to be invented in order to describe certain parts of the revelations. These new terms are defined by the Glossary of Terms in the sidebar of The Origin of the Master Universe poster. The main design focus is always to give the broad concepts and principles the attention they deserve without letting too much detail get in the way.
Much time and effort was spent by both the Spirit revelators and their human collaborators in an attempt to harmonize these posters with the revelations from which they are derived, but the fact remains that no one is perfect, and neither are these posters.
Color is used primarily to create contrast, highlight items of interest, and improve the user experience, otherwise the choice of colors has no meaning. One exception to that rule is Azure blue to designate the Paradise Trinity, as specified in the Urantia Book.
We hope you will enjoy these beautiful educational posters.
