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).

Manas

Finally we arrive at manas, which is regarded as the eleventh faculty and which fulfills a double fucnction in relation to both perception and action, and participating in a way in the properties of both, and these it centralizes within itself.[1] Considered in its more comprehensive sense, which is to say as three faculties in one, manas completes the thirteen instruments of knowledge in the individual sphere (both the faculties of action and and sensation are ordered toward knowledge).
