Aldous Huxley's Classic Writings on Psychedelics and the Visionary ExperienceeBook - 1999
Following his mystical experiences after taking mescaline in 1953, Aldous Huxley saw psychedelics as the greatest means at our disposal to "remind adults that the real world is very different from the misshapen universe they have created for themselves by means of their culture-conditioned prejudices." Moksha, a Sanskrit word meaning "liberation," is a collection of Huxley's prophetic and visionary writings. It includes selections from his acclaimed novels Brave New World and Island, both of which envision societies centered around the use of psychedelics as stabilizing forces, as well as pieces from The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell, his famous works on consciousness expansion.
