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).

Proportional attraction

We are also told that the attraction between individuals varies depending on the ‘magnetic’ strength of the tsing, which grows in proportion to the level of yin and yang present in each. The ‘magnetic’ or ‘fluidic’ nature of the substrate of sexual desire, although not acknowledged in modern science or social theory, is nonetheless retained in common speech when we speak of a man’s ‘fascination’ with a woman (fascinum was a technical term for enchantment in the magical sense) and when we speak of the ‘chemistry’ between two people that may be quite powerful. The exact reason for the discrepancy in attraction, which has nothing at all to do with ‘reproductive potential of the mate’ will be discussed below, but for now we need only acknowledge that the attraction is different depending on the maleness of the male and the femaleness of the female and the balance achieved by their union.
