An Introductory Piece into Psychedelics and The Other World
on August 31, 2015
A very interesting read, to say the least. Aldous Huxley has a way with words and utilizing his imaginative imagery to help the reader understand the various novel pieces of information presented throughout both The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell. To most -I'd assume- the concept of Mind at Large and the "Other-ness" is a new and complicated topic and therefore requires a lot of thought while reading the book. I personally have never tried any psychedelic drugs and am therefore left very much in the dark with regards to these concepts, however Aldous Huxley presents this new information in such a way that is both informative and not overwhelming to those who are newly interested in subjects on transcendence, ego-death, and self-awareness. Overall the book is very much an introduction into the world of psychedelics and the Other world that lays far in the depths of our minds. If you're looking for an introductory piece into these kinds of subjects, this is probably your best bet.
