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).

Magnetism and magic

Although this should go without saying, the force we’ve been speaking of as ‘magnetic’ is not the magnetism observed and studied by the empirical sciences, and we only use the term because it is useful as an analogy drawn from common knowledge. The actual level in question is supraphysical and is what activates the rational and physical desire. Thus, it would perhaps be more accurate, since what we have in mind transcends the physical and empirical, to speak of this force as ‘magical,’ and this would have the benefit of demonstrating to the reader what magic, properly understood, really entails, which is nothing other than an operative knowledge of metaphysical reality. Unfortunately, the term magic has far too much confusion attached to it to make it more practical for our purposes than magnetism, even if it would be more accurate in a theoretical sense.
