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).

Existence and non-existence

In Vaisheshika, all of these six padarthas taken together, which are substances and all their attributes, go to form bhava, existence, which is opposed to abhava, non-existence. Abhava is equivalent to Aristotelian ‘privation’ and is often considered a seventh padartha, despite its being a purely negative conception.
