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 Vedangas

We made the distinction earlier between the darshanas and the Vedangas, which were ancillary sciences. Having arrived at Mimansa, we see that these sciences are most directly attached to this darshana due to its subject matter, which is the proper understanding of texts; likewise due to its connection with action and the accomplishment of ritual, it makes sense that the proper pronunciation of words, as well as the precise meaning of grammar and spelling, would be of utmost concern here.
