    Nice little tidbit of info I thought you may like you know.

    The Doors of Perception & Heaven And Hell

    or

    Brave New World



    Both are most excellent.

    Howdoo - if you do decide to check out the doors of perception then I'd reccomed Heaven and Hell - purely beause I read it straight after and it flows as one book. If you PM me I'll happily send you my copy if you have trouble finding it online,. As far as Huxley non-fiction goes it's a very interesting read.

    I have been a massive fan of Brave new world and the Island for years. Once I read Heaven and Hell and his descriptions of a trip in the Doors of Perception I was hooked. Classic writer with some unique thoughts(for his time) on what a psychedelic experience can be.

    Does anyone know if it is true that he took a large dose of a psychedelic just before time of death?
    Is anyone awake here on earth?

    Yes, he was administered two separate 100 microgram doses of LSD just prior to the time of his death... intravenously. Apparently he died very peacefully.

    A great man deserving of appreciation, thus I contribute to the thread! I wish there were more thinkers of his kind around today.

    The late Terence McKenna is another psychedelic and consciousness pioneer that I greatly recognize.

    BNW had a profound effect upon my young mind and Huxley will always be high on my list of favorite writers because of it. He also was influential on one of his students named Orwell.
