Aldous Huxley munches on some Mescaline four tenths of a gram means nothing to me as a clean living soul as a guinea pig experimenting for a friend He expects some kind of visionary experience a la Blake but as he admits he is a poor visualiser and experiences less than the visions described and painted by artists because gifted artists according to him have a little pipeline to the Mind At Large which by passes the brain valve and the ego filter Unlike gifted artists by an effort of will I can evoke a not very vivid image says Huxley What he sees are some golden lights the intricacies of design in nature trips out on the Allness and Infinity of folded cloth in his trousers haha is struck by lively dissonance of colours experiences the is ness of things the Istigkeit the infinite value and meaningfulness of existence things uivering under the pressure of the significance with which they are charged sees simple things charged with meaning and mystery of existence etc etc and comes to conclusion that brain is eliminative not productive filtering out what we don t need in order to survive protecting us from being overwhelmed and confused or going insane since we know all remember all about everything everywhere in the universe This is the finite mind the Mind at largeHuxley discusses the idea that we all crave the release from Reality the urge to transcend is a principal appetite of the soul through some kind of somadrug to reach these what he calls antipodes of the mind the universal and ever present urge for self transcendence Wells the door in the wall the need for chemical vacations from intolerable selfhood He later discusses how we achieve this through religious ceremony drug taking etc In second part he discusses in detail these antipodes of the mind claiming that we dream in black and white which is not true may be true for Huxley the poor visualiser and the scintillating things we create to bring us the visionary experience like vivid paintings fireworks lights even theatre lights and costume jewellery bit of a stretch and the resplendence of royal ceremonial dress another bit of a stretch etc etc things which give us a reminder of those things we see in that other world whatever in nature or a work of art resembles one of those intensely significant inwardly flowing objects encountered at the mind s antipodes is capable of inducing if only in partial attenuated form the visionary experience He uses this to explain our inexplicable passion for gems shiny objects jewellery vivid colours in painting stained glass windows glass chrome the beauty of curved reflections and softly lustrous glazes etc things that transport the beholder as a reminder of preternatural colours and intensity of the other worldHe bangs on about this for page after page but where the book gets good is where he starts discussing the numinous uality of certain works of art like landscape painting as a vision inducing art form the distances and propinuity in same things isolated from their utilitarian context medieval art renaissance art things seen and rendered as living jewels things of visionary intensity transfigured and therefore transportingLater he discusses schizophrenics as negative visionaries for a healthy person perception of the infinite in a finite particular is a revelation of divine immanence not so for the mentally ill They are transfigured by their visions but for the worse He also discusses religious punishments self flagellation hypnosis fasting vitamin deficiencies Mortification of the body etc as a means of reaching those antipodes of the mind by increasing the CO2 to lower efficiency of the brain as a reducing valve and permit the entry into that other world to experience the visionary or mystical from out there also including things like prolonged shouting praying chanting etc to experience the intense significance of things that give us God s immanence because in a nutshell the brain is chemically controlled and therefore can be made permeable to the superfluous aspects of mind at large by modifying the normal chemistry of the body An important little book that warrants re reading

Have you ever had to be the designated driver while your buddies got wasted Watching them laugh at nothing and behave like asses while you re unfortunately stone cold sober is a pretty miserable experience as your mind hasn t been altered by chemicals Reading The Doors of Perception is like this Aldous Huxley does mescaline and then describes it extensively to the bored reader who is probably not on mescaline And it s not nearly as fascinating as Huxley believes it to be because we re probably not on mescaline I know I wasn t when reading this crap The Doors of Perception is a 50 page essay and it s seuel Heaven and Hell a 33 page essay read like far longer works because they re so unreadable The point of the essays is that Huxley believes there is to human nature than the base level of survival and that it s because of how our species has developed that has made us forget ways in which we can perceive things beyond the ordinary He wants to allow people to experience mescaline in order to see things he believes are there but beyond our reach without the help of hallucinogenics And here s the big problem I have with this view it s that assuming that what you experience while high is worth and is real than what you experience everyday I mean what you re experiencing is simulated with the aid of chemicals why would it be real than reality A problem endemic to this book is that Huxley is talking about experiences that are purely visceral and beyond man made constructs such as language and are therefore indescribable yet he s trying to describe them with language Which is why you get drivel like this I spent several minutes or was it several centuries not merely gazing at those bamboo legs but actually being them or rather being myself in them or to be still accurate for I was not involved in the case nor in a certain sense were they being my Not self in the Not self which was the chair p10 Confronted by a chair which looked like the Last Judgement or to be accurate by a Last Judgement which after a long time and with considerable difficulty I recognized as a chair I found myself all at once on the brink of panic p33Good lord this crap goes on and on for nearly a 100 pages and it doesn t help that he s not a very good writer to start with His rambling style fused with a dry almost academic vernacular makes reading this book of insubstantial observations and half formed ideas all the insufferable All he proves is that drugs make intelligent people sound like moronsHe feebly attempts to make the argument that researchers and scientists don t take spiritual experiences seriously because they can t see it measure it rationalise it in any scientific way Duh He bewails methods eg taking mescaline that allegedly make you perceptive intensely aware of inward and outward reality and open to the spirit which constitute the non verbal humanities aren t taken seriously Well when you put it like that AldousHe attempts to rectify this by constantly referencing William Blake Homer and Goethe in an effort to make the essay appear academic and therefore substantial and worthy of consideration It s truly pretentious and pathetic in its ineffectiveness This uote basically sums up the essays Those folds in the trousers what a labyrinth of endlessly significant complexity And the texture of the grey flannel how rich how deeply mysteriously sumptuous p16Wooaaaah Aldous got fucked up on mescaline
