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).

Did Christ speak of esoterism?

It might be objected that the Bible and the Christ we find in the Bible did not mention esoterism. Regarding the Bible, this is nonsense since all Scripture is both esoteric and exoteric, although we can acknowledge that the New Testament tends more toward exoterism in its expression. Regarding Christ himself, however, we need look no further than his attitude toward the uncomprehending, for example regarding the mystery of the Eucharist. We are told that when he spoke of the necessity of consuming his body and blood, many left him. Did he try to explain things to them in a simpler manner? No, he simply acknowledged the fundamental principle of esoterism, which is that those who have ears to hear may hear, but there is no call to explain oneself to those who do not, nor should one ever try to justify this knowledge or simplify it to bring it within the grasp of all. The idea of Christ offering proofs of the truth of his parables is absurd. Moreover, it is clear that Christ reserved certain teachings for his disciples alone, contained in the Scriptures in synthetic form, no doubt, but by no means stated there explicitly.
