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).

The Cloud of Unknowing

We find God beyond all knowledge, and this is why contemplation has been described as a passing through the cloud of unknowing. This is also why the experience cannot be verbalized, and why those who have been there are reluctant to share what it was that they saw or heard or felt: they have likely tried, early on, before they realized that seeing, feeling, and hearing cannot begin to convey what it was, nor can they enunciate it in any coherent way. If it can be known, it is something that one can only know for oneself. It cannot be explained or proven or justified. Others can be directed, or corrected, on their path, but they cannot be shown the goal itself.
