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).

Volume 1 | Volume 2 | Volume 3| Volume 4 | Volume 5 | Volume 6

General remarks

Everything within manifestation is intermingled and all its various aspects influence one another. The goal of spiritual realization may lie outside of manifestation, but the means and path are within it, and the consequences of these truths are far-reaching. It means that religious forms and the means of grace are not independent of context, and that place matters as much as dogma when it comes to spiritual realization. One cannot transplant the man of a particular spiritual nature into an alien environment and expect him to flourish, even if he has his native doctrine with him. Nor can we transplant an alien doctrine into an alien place. Spiritual realization means dispelling confusion, and when forms and places are treated as interchangeable, ambience and method become confused, and the inner life reflects this as much as the external character of today’s “cosmopolitan” environments.
