It represents an artist'sattempt to depict the following description of Paradise, "the cosmiccenter of all things," as revealed in The Urantia Book:
"Paradise is the eternal center of the universe of universes and theabiding place of the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, [and] theInfinite Spirit ... The personal presence of the Universal Father isresident at the very center of [Paradise]. This Paradise presence of theUniversal Father is immediately surrounded by the personal presence ofthe Eternal Son, while they are both invested by the unspeakable gloryof the Infinite Spirit. God dwells, has dwelt, and everlastingly willdwell in this same central and eternal abode. We have always found himthere and always will. The Universal Father is cosmically focalized,spiritually personalized, and geographically resident at this center ofthe universe of universes."
