Yesterday my copy of the Concordex arrived and this morning I read the 50 page introduction in it. This book is incredible!
First of all Clyde was on the original forum and is also, IMO, an outstanding writer. One quick quote can give you an idea of this: "If you are earnestly seeking truth, the Urantia Book would provide you the thrills of your life. If you are a metaphysical "bar hopper", simply seeking to sip psychic samples proffered anywhere, expect little. For the Urantia Book is to drink deeply, to live with and by. It is not a diversionary shot-in-the-arm, or a spiritual incidental."
I had heard of the Concordex years ago, but had not looked into it seriously because I felt that the Urantia Book search engines could do a better job. This could not be farther from the truth. I really think that it will provide me with several years of new, insightful, UB reading. The 50 page intro also provides some excellent suggestions and ideas. One is a list of 803 interesting topics with corresponding page numbers. It suggests that if you read the selection and really like it, you put vertical bars in the margin of the UB and next to it you write in the previous related article page number and the following related page number. During subsequent trips through the UB, you will be attracted by the bars and then reread it. This is an excellent idea. I previously had used a yellow highlighter, but will now use a red ball point for the Concordex suggestions. It got me to wonder what Clyde's UB must have looked like and what happened to it.
I could go on and on about the interesting topics, but I'll just give one more. One topic is "numbers", you know, things like how many inhabitable worlds in a system. Two that caught my eye are 1) there are 3 inhabitable planets in our solar system of 12 planets, and 2) there are 7 super universes in the Grand Universe but about 70,000 in the Master Universe. Wow!
