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 spiritual or ‘pneumatic’ state

The spiritual state is the state of pure intelligibility, and differs from the psychic and the corporeal by an incommensurable degree. We saw that in passing from the corporeal to the psychic, the spatial condition is surpassed, and this creates conceptual difficulties from the start: all the more when we come to pass from the psychic, the world of form, to the spiritual, the world of the formless, which not only escapes time and space but even individuality. In the spiritual world we are dealing with supra-individual reality that is not yet ‘individuated’ by the presence of form. This is the Universal order, as opposed to the particular, a distinction that we will elaborate on below. Here we are not dealing with the principle of this or that, but with the Principle.
