This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

One sun among many stars

One side of the modern mentality, for example the Evangelicals, interpret Christ’s claims as though they exclude the possibility of other manifestations of the Logos in other worlds; the other side of the same mentality sees the diversity of Christs and concludes that because they are multiple that they must be false. Neither group can conceive of a multiplicity of Revelations, because they only see human life through the lens of uniformity and globalism. They cannot see that multiple humanities divided into multiple worlds would obviously require multiple Revelations. The first type of person, when faced with the discovery of other solar systems beyond our own, would insist that, nonetheless, there is still only one sun, his own, reducing the whole of the cosmos to his own perspective. The second type of person would respond by saying that since our own sun is not, after all, unique, that there is no such thing as a “sun” at all. Obviously they are both partially right and partially wrong. The sun is unique, as the first man insists, but it is only unique for us, on Earth, and contrary to the belief of the second man, this does not diminish its significance for us, because even if it is not unique in an absolute sense, it is our center and the cause of our life.
