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).

The gift of perfect blackness

In the Core Cosmu of Egyptian Hermeticism, Isis says:

Listen carefully…for here I tell you the secret doctrine that my grandfather Kamephis learnt from Hermes…and I from Kamephis, when he honored me with the gift of perfect Blackness.

Given Mary’s role as the reintegration and recapitulation of preceding doctrines regarding the eternal feminine, we can see that these words could easily be placed on her lips, especially when contemplated as the Black Virgin. It is notable that the statues of the Black Virgins, found in crypts, represent the base material, the virgin earth, which the Hermeticist takes as his point of departure for the alchemical work.
