The Doors of Perception and Heaven & Hell.
Aldous Huxley, 1954
One of our namesakes, Aldous Huxley, writes about his psychedelic experience on a knowledge-seeking mescaline trip that begins in his study at home with his wife and a doctor. The title comes from William Blake's poem, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, which reads, "If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is: Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern."
