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).

Coherence of the Veda

Lastly, just to fend off certain tendencies of the modern mentality, we should stress that the Veda represents a coherent whole, but should never be considered a system, being of its nature anti-systematic. All of its contents should be viewed as if existing simultaneously, and not as something developed over time, with that which came later modifying that which came first. This is appropriate with some doctrinal texts, but not with the Veda itself which, as we have said, is of non-human origin. This is not to say that the scriptures were not unfolded in a particular order, but is only to say that when considering them from a doctrinal standpoint, this order does not matter.
