"Women are the backbone of all societies. They do a substantial part of the work, and play a major role in raising the future generation yet they are largely powerless. The decisions that count are made by men and foisted upon women."

World 2: The Vorondadek Sons

On the 49 Vorondadek Sons spheres ascenders secure the acme
of their education regarding universe legislation.

Pilgrims from the trial worlds have had a chance during
their sojourn on their constellation to observe the functioning
of the legislative assemblies. Here, however, “… they
participate in the enactment of the actual legislation of the
local universe under the tutelage of the senior Vorondadeks.
Such enactments are designed to co-ordinate the various
pronouncements of the autonomous legislative assemblies of the
one hundred constellations. The instruction to be had in the
Vorondadek schools is unexcelled even on Uversa.”

Students are gradually introduced to new concepts, starting
on the first sphere and its 6 satellites, on up through the
remaining 6 primary spheres and their associated satellites

There are also numerous new endeavors on these worlds of
study and practical work. The Revelator (Chief of Archangels) is
allowed to talk about them, but he is hampered by the fact that
there are no analogous human activities which might be used as
illustrations of these new occupations. [P391].

[It bears repeating that talk of legislation and legislative
assemblies on Nebadon, should not be confused with equivalent
activities on Urantia. The primitive institutions referred to as
Legislative Assemblies, Parliaments, Congress, Councils, etc. are
but a pale imitation of the higher institutions governing our
universe. Nevertheless, they represent, at least for us, the
tools of our budding democracies.

Our legislation, the result of endless and illogical
compromises, are full of holes, referred to politely as
loopholes. Again, and even though they are crude tools, it’s the
best we have. Our present laws are stepping stones that will
eventually take us to the age of light and life.]

World 3: The Lanonandek Sons

On the Lanonandek worlds, experienced Lanonandeks belonging
to the ex-system Sovereign corps officiate as administrative
teachers to the ascending pilgrims. “The evolutionary mortals
observe the system administrators at work on the system capitals,
but here they participate in the actual co-ordination of the
administrative pronouncements of the ten thousand local systems.”

These administrative schools are supervised by a corps of
Lanonandeks Sons who have had extensive experience as System
Sovereigns and as constellation counsellors. These Nebadon
colleges are excelled only by the administrative schools of Ensa
(our minor sector). [P394].

World 4: The Life Carriers

Life on a planet is not the result of a chance arrangement
of organic molecules! It is carefully constructed by the Life
Carriers according to plans formulated by the (unrevealed)
Architects of Being.

The Life Carriers worlds are in a manner of speaking their
laboratories. There they research, experiment, debate, and
design life. They always seek to improve the vital formulae
committed to their keeping. A departure from previously accepted
formulae must be approved by the Creator Son.

After perusing paper 36, I could find no indication that
mortals receive any training on these worlds. If so, it’s a
pity, for learning the techniques used by the Life Carriers in
creating life must be utterly fascinating. There are, however,
two pieces of good news.

First, nothing in their paper indicate that we are forbidden
to visit these spheres. Second, you’re allowed to ask the Life
Carriers questions. They’ll explain to you why they couldn’t
meet your ideals. They do after all labor under many
limitations. [Paper 36].
