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).

Divine impersonality

Another difficulty that arises when transitioning from the exoteric to the esoteric point of view is comprehension of Divine Impersonality. To make it clear why it is necessary to approach this subject if one wishes to contemplate transcendence, we need only insist that since God is Infinite and can therefore have no limits and no privations, and since Personality is in its own way a privation or a limit, then we can say that God is not a Personality. If it is legitimate to speak of God as a person or persons, it is only legitimate from the point of view of theology. In other words, to speak of Divine Impersonality is not to say that God lacks personality, but is rather to say that he is suprapersonal–unable to be limited in that way. When the personal God is spoken of, it is really the Divine Ego which is in question, or the Logos. Thus, we can say that Christ is the human manifestation of the Logos, which is itself the Divine Personality or Ego. And all of these “proceed from the Father,” which is beyond personality.
