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).

Beware accusations of pantheism

The truth contained in pantheism is that there is some kind of continuity between the Infinite and the finite, between the principle and its productions. The error of pantheist consists in attributing this to a “substantial identity” between the ontological Principle and the rest of the created order. This is erroneous and is symptomatic of an improper or incomplete notion of Being and its relationship to manifestation. The identity between manifestation and its Principle is an “essential” and not a substantial one, in that they are connected in terms of essence but not of the same substance. The erroneous notion of pantheism is usually evidence of a substantial notion of Being, which is unfortunately the case with most forms of theism and therefore with theology in general. Once one accepts a substantial notion of Being, one must correctly deny pantheism. But if we see the identity as substantial, then pantheism becomes true.
