This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

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.
