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).

Inward and outward equilibrium

The seat of equilibrium for the jnanin is the intellect. The intellect is not properly speaking human but is the human link with God. It is pre-human or supra-human. This means that for the man of knowledge, all worldly activity has a relative character and is, compared to what concerns him the most, unreal. The bhakti believes this also and he is happy to remind himself that he is “in the world but not of it,” but the difference is that the jnanin would not need to be told this at all, much less reminded. For him this knowledge conditions his awareness: he cannot not know it. Again, this is because the seat of his awareness is in the intellect. He is “inward,” and lives from within, and all action is relative.
