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 perpetuity of the Veda

Objections having been set aside, the Vedas should be viewed in accordance with their name, which is to say they should be viewed as a codified, textual expression of traditional knowledge unqualified. In this view, which is the only one that does them justice, they exist in perpetuity, as hard as this is to fathom for moderns who, seeing everything in the context of evolution, where each and every idea must have been ‘invented’ at a specific point by a specific person. On the contrary, being a direct expression of the primordial tradition, this doctrine can only be referred back to direct inspiration, and this is why the origin of the Veda is called apaurusheya or ‘non-human.’ More on the theory of inspiration will be said later.
