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 subterranean divine

We learn more about the nature and significance of the Virgin by the locations in which she presents herself. The Marian apparition in Lourdes is typical, occurring in the cave of Massabielle. There is a clear connection between the subterranean nature of these apparitions and the chthonic aspect of the Virgin herself as identified with materia prima, or primordial substance. This recalls the many connections already made between the Virgin and the vegetable domain, or we could say the ‘organic’ in general.
