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).

Cogito ergo sum

If Satan’s sin was to claim independence from the Divine and to see an existence apart from it (“I will not serve”), then we can say that this is identical to the psychomachy wherein the personality, the ego, the “I,” no longer “serves” the Intellect, or the Spirit, but does what it wills and this pertains also to rational thought since man thinks of what he loves and so his thought follows his will. In this light, the motto of Descartes is terrifying. ‘I think, therefore I am’ is essentially satanic in the sense that it claims totality in the soul.
