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).

There are no discoveries in metaphysics

There is no such thing as a new discovery in metaphysics. Metaphysics is available to anyone at any point in history who attains to it, for the simple reason that, in itself, it never changes, and since it is received ‘at once’ it does not depend on a drawn out and quantitative education process. All that it presupposes is an adequate spiritual preparation—which is something very different from an educational preparation. What is in question is the immutable truth, and to apprehend it at one time is the same as to apprehend it at a point one thousand years before or after. If ‘developments’ appear to take place this is only because the formulation of principles will always be susceptible to the varying conditions of time and place and will also be conditioned by the mentality and intelligence of the individual carrying out the formulation. That is to say, differences in exposition are to be attributed to the presence or lack of understanding in the individual or the spiritual temperament and aptitude of whatever human type is in question, and nothing more.
