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).

When we move to the official doctrine of Buddhism in its earliest forms, we come first to the idea of dharma. Dharma is summarized neatly in the axioms known as the Four Aryan Truths:

That there is suffering (Dukkha); that it has a cause (Samudaya); that it can be suppressed (Nirodha); and there is a way, a ‘Path,’ to accomplish this (Magga).
