This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

A note on qualifications

Regarding the notion that in order for a guru to be qualified he must have achieved Deliverance, the final goal of spiritual realization, we can say that this is nonsense. The guru has a simply goal before them, which is to guide the student toward a certain degree of realization, and the primary requirement (although not the only one) is that the guru has reached this degree themselves. Again, other requirements are there, but regarding the actual degree of realization attained by the guru, we can say that obviously they need not have ‘gone all the way’ and that if they have only traveled part of the way then this only limits how far they might direct others, since one cannot actively teach about what one does not know. At the point at which the disciple reaches the same degree as the guru, he would simply direct him to another.
