Aldous Huxley, one of the most daring intellectuals of our time, collects in this book two articles about hallucinogenic drugs and their influence on various artistic manifestations, from painting to literature. Through the documentation available in the 1950s and the testimony of doctors and scientists who had experimented with drugs, Huxley recounted the history of peyotl, its social consideration in old American cultures, and recounted his own experiences with hallucinogens. A fundamental work in the debate on drugs.  … (mer)

    Miserable Miracle: Mescaline av Henri Michaux (chmod007)
    chmod007: While Huxley’s experiences with mescaline were mostly blissful, the substance revealed in his French contemporary Michaux a much darker mindscape. Read together, The Doors of Perception and Miserable miracle give the reader perspective on the tremendous transformative power of mescaline.… (mer)

    Äcklet av Jean-Paul Sartre (kaityjames)
    kaityjames: Huxley views art as a pale imitation of objects as they ARE; Sartre finds existence disgusting and obscene, and art as a beautiful form above and beyond reality. Definitely compatible if you can dig Sartre's dark, existential language.

A classic psychedelic text that I have wanted to read ever since learning it is where "The Doors" came up with their name.

It can be fairly dry, and academic at times, but throughout are some incredible moments of insight and philosophy. A few moments diverge to talk far too long about art, or religion. Just when you start to tune out, Huxley will drop a bomb on you (like one of the following quotes as example, to bring you back and make you think.

Here were some of my favorites that I had to read multiple times to appreciate.

"My actual experience had been, was still, of an indefinite duration or alternatively of a perpetual present made up of one continually changing apocalypse."

"When we feel ourselves to be sole heirs of the universe, when "the sea flows in our veins...and the stars are our jewels," when all things are perceived as infinite and holy, what motive can we have for covetousness or self-assertion, for the pursuit of power or the drearier forms of pleasure?”

""The schizophrenic is like a man permanently under the influence of mescalin, and therefore unable to shut off the experience of a reality which he is not holy enough to live with, which he cannot explain away because it is the most stubborn of primary facts, and which, because it never permits him to look at the world with merely human eyes, scares him into interpreting its unremitting strangeness, its burning intensity of significance, as the manifestations of human or even cosmic malevolence"

"But the man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out. He will be wiser but less cocksure, happier but less self-satisfied, humbler in acknowledging his ignorance yet better equipped to understand the relationship of words to things, of systematic reasoning to the unfathomable Mystery which it tries, forever vainly, to comprehend."

Nën ndikimin e meskalinës, aftësia e tij për të kujtuar dhe "gjykuar drejt" zbehet pak, syri rimerr diç nga pafajësia perceptuese e fëmijërisë, interesi për hapësirën bie, ndërsa interesi për kohën shkon drejt zeros. Kauzat për të cilat do të ishte i gatshëm të vuante, në kushte normale, tani i duken jo interesante. Huxley tregon se gjatë këtij eksperimenti percepton përjetësinë në një lule, pafundësinë në katër këmbë karrigeje dhe absoluten në palosjen e një palë pantallonash fanellatë. Meskalina e kishte çliruar nga bota e vet, e kohës, e gjykimeve morale dhe vlerësimeve utilitare, e fjalëve të mbivlerësuara dhe pikëpamjeve të dyzuara. Gjatë kësaj kohe Huxley çohet të vizitojë depon farmaceutike më të madhe në botë dhe gjendet përballë pikturave, librave, veprave muzikore më të famshme për të cilat ai shpreh kritikat, admirimin dhe vizionin e tij. Kjo është dëshira për t'u arratisur nga vetvetja dhe nga mjedisi përreth që i çon njerëzit qetësisht drejt përdorimit të narkotikëve bimorë apo haluçinogjenëve. Në fund të librit autori kthehet përmes derës së perceptimit. Por ai nuk është më i njëjti njeri.

En este libro, tan singular como precursor, Aldous HuxIey expresa sus propias experiencias sensoriales bajo la acción de la mescalina, el principio activo del peyotI, denominación mexicana del cacto, venerado como una deidad por los indios de México y del sudeste de los Estados Unidos. A la descripción minuciosa de su experimento -una experiencia de la trascendencia del yo expresada magistralmente en la cita de Blake: 'Si las puertas de la percepción quedaran depuradas todo se habría de mostrar tal cual es: infinito'- siguen las conclusiones filosóficas y sociológicas que Huxley desprende como obligado corolario.

“The effective object of worship is the bottle and the sole religious experience is that state of uninhibited and belligerent euphoria which follows the ingestion of the third cocktail.”

To put it bluntly, The Doors of Perception is a first-hand account of Brave New World author Aldous Huxley's documented experience of tripping balls on mescaline. I've always found it telling how high schools (at least in the eighties and nineties when I attended) would eagerly lead students through an anti-drug perspective of Brave New world without bothering to mention Huxley's later experimentation and promotion of hallucinogenics as positive tool towards psychological and philosophical growth.

The Doors of Perception is probably one of the most scholarly and grounded first-hand accounts of a hallucinogenic journey you'll ever read, as Huxley takes periodic breaks to expound upon drugs (not all, mind you) as a tool to aid in understanding the perceptions of those suffering from metal illnesses and seeing how the "genius" sees the world, as well as the religious connotations in and human necessity towards chemically aided transcendence.

Huxley would later experiment with LSD and continue to support the clinical and societal benefits of hallucinogenics, and would receive injections of LSD on his deathbed at his request. This book is an a must read for anyone interested in the scholarly pursuit of better living through chemistry, or the history of the modern approach and examination of such drugs. ( )

> LES PORTES DE LA PERCEPTION, d'Aldous Huxley. — L'auteur nous raconte son expérience de la perception de la réalité sous l'effet du Peyotl et raconte ensuite le lien pour comprendre la réalité selon ce qu'il perçoit comme réel en se basant sur la religion chrétienne.
* Écrit dans les années soixante, il est une tentative d'explication sur d'autres points de vues que nos visions du monde qui nous ont été imposée de façon séculaire. Sa popularité à l'époque ont influencés plusieurs chercheurs et artistes qui puisent encore de nos jours sur des idées.

> LES PORTES DE LA PERCEPTION, d'Aldous Huxley. — L'auteur du Meilleur des Mondes nous donne là sa réflexion vécue sur les façons d'épurer le mental et de développer la conscience vigilante. A la fin de sa vie, Huxley insistait sur “le danger qu'il y a à s'adonner à la méditation seulement, à la sagesse seulement, à la connaissance seulement. Sans amour”. Sur ses expériences psychédéliques, lire aussi un recueil de lettres et témoignages : Moksha, chez le même éditeur et Philosophia Perennis. Éd. du Rocher. (Albert SARALLIER)

> LES PORTES DE LA PERCEPTION, Aldous Huxley, 10/18. — Parution en poche de ce grand classique sur la mescaline et le premier témoignage psycho-culturel publié après la guerre en 1952. Avec ce livre, Huxley inaugurait tout un champ de recherches et d'expérimentation qui allait culminer avec l'oeuvre de Leary dont "Les portes..." est l'ancêtre direct.

> LES PORTES DE LA PERCEPTION ALDOUS HUXLEY. Relation d'une expérience à laquelle s'était prêté A Huxley, par l'ingestion d'une dose de mescaline, ce livre décrit avec une acuité et une précision rare les phénomènes psychologiques produits par la drogue. L'auteur nous fait voir surtout les rapports de notre perception ordinaire du monde et celle que nous pouvons avoir parfois de la Réalité ultime et du divin. Cet essai constitue ainsi une véritable introduction a la vie mystique.

We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstacies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude.
To see ourselves as others see us is a most salutary gift. Hardly less important is the capacity to see others as they see themselves.
