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 inexpressible and the spiritual

At this point we have proceeded by degrees to consider our subject, which was initially described as ‘a sense of the inexpressible’, which creates in those who have deep experiences with it a feeling of wonder and awe, and these in turn develop in us an attitude of reverence. It is this reverence that finds its ultimate expression in religion, and given the universality of the human awareness of the inexpressible, the need for religion is also felt as universal. For this reason we can see why the knowledge pertaining to gnosis is also legitimately called spiritual knowledge, a sense of the sacred, or knowledge of the divine order, these being the aspects of gnosis once it is formulated within the context of doctrine.
