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).

Contemporary disequilibrium

We should remark that while the presence of both groups is natural, an equilibrium is necessary, and it would not be far-fetched to suggest that today the salikun are far too few and the barkun far too many to result in a healthy organization, and that this is a serious impediment to their function. For example, while the esoteric element is strong in the organization, the barikun benefit from the barakah or “spiritual influence” of the salikun, and so a disequilibrium in the organization disrupts the spiritual health of both circles.

The danger of initiatic orders in the present day. Here I’ll issue a warning that although these initiatic orders may have at one time presented themselves as powerful aids to those with the potential to participate in them, the current state of disequilibrium in humanity as a whole and in such groups as a consequence is so extreme that they present a grave danger for participants in them. I know of more than one of these orders that, even with the best of intentions and the wisest leaders, ended into embarrassment and perversity, not because of any ill will on the part of the leaders but due to an incorrect appraisal of the current state of things, or a refusal to accept the present age for what it is. In other words, even if their projects may have had merit in another age, they were doomed from the start in ours. In everything, take account of the instability, inward and outward, of all things during the Kali Yuga.
