This Day In History - November 22, 1963 * 2
    #28064370 - 11/22/22 04:16 PM (6 days, 1 hour ago)

November 22, 1963

Aldous Huxley dies at age 69 under the influence of LSD, to enhance his awareness.

Aldous Huxley the eminent British novelist, is best known for the novel Brave New World (1932).

Brave New World Revised appeared in 1958. Huxley's other later works include The Devils Of Loudon (1952), depicting mass-hysteria and exorcism in the 17th-century France. Island (1962) was an utopian novel and a return to the territory of Brave New World, in which a journalist shipwrecks on Pala, the fabled island, and discovers there a kind and happy people. But the earthly paradise is not immune to the harsh realities of oil policy. In 1963 appeared Literature And Science, a collection of essays.

In 1954 Huxley published an influential study of consciousness expansion through mescaline, The Doors Of Perception and became later a guru among Californian hippies. He also started to use LSD and showed interest in Hindu philosophy. In 1961 Huxley suffered a severe loss when his house and his papers were totally destroyed in a bush-fire. Huxley died in Los Angeles on November 22, 1963.

Aldous died as he lived, doing his best to develop fully in himself one of the essentials he recommended to others: Awareness.

When he realized that the labor of his body leaving this life might lessen his awareness, Aldous prescribed his own medicine or — expressed in another way — his own sacrament. LSD. He asked his wife, Laura, to give him a 100µg dose of the drug and she complied with two injections a few hours apart. He died peacefully shortly after the second dose.

‘The last rites should make one more conscious rather than less conscious,” he had often said, “more human rather than less human.”

Huxley's LSD Death Trip

"Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him." - Aldous Huxley
