This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

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 universal capacity

The intellectual life in practice is a rare vocation, although the capacity to experience this type of insight is universal and possessed by all men at all times. It is an aspect of the human condition. It is this which allows us to communicate, to some degree, the inexpressible: we provide the hints of the essence that we cannot fully describe, and others who have also experienced this essence, although they cannot describe it either, understand what we are trying to say, and so we are able to share in an experience that neither of us can define. While this explains the fellowship of those with spiritual experience, it also explains the alienation of those without it. To one who does not make inroads into the beyond, what is said of it is foolishness.
