In Huxley's transition to mystical writings began.

Crowley had confided to the writer Aldous Huxley in when they met in Berlin that Hitler was a practicing occultist. He also claimed that the OTO had helped the Nazis to gain power. Christopher Isherwood was a follower of Swami Prabhavananda, a playwright and fiction writer who translated the Bhagavad-Gita and other Hindu writings from Sanskrit.

He converted from Anglicanism to Hinduism. He became a convert to the Vedanta Society. Huxley became interested in "eclectic mysticism" at a time of the intense fundamentalist religious revival in California. Huxley borrowed from Wells the phrase "Doors in a Wall. Huxley called drugs "modifiers of conscience" and said that hallucinatory drugs had been used since the earliest recorded history.

Huxley dabbled in drugs such as the Mandrake plant. Many who have been encouraged to use drugs have died prematurely through overdosing or by suicide.

In a letter Aldous Huxley said that he was "profoundly optimistic about individuals and groups of individuals existing on the margins of society. In a essay, Orwell wrote: "Mr.

The Aquarian Conspiracy

Aldous Huxley's Brave New World was a good caricature of the hedonistic Utopia, the kind of thing that seemed possible and even imminent before Hitler appeared, but it had no relation to the actual future.

What we are moving towards at this moment is something more like the Spanish Inquisition, and probably far worse, thanks to the radio and the secret police. Here the hedonistic principle is pushed to its utmost, the whole world has turned into a Riviera hotel. But though Brave New World was a brilliant caricature of the present the present of , it probably casts no light on the future.

He was so taken with the idea of learning communities that he went on to found Trabuco College in Ventura, California, in At the close of World War II he wrote: "Between ivory towerism on the one hand and direct political action on the other lies the alternative of spirituality. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth.

By simply not mentioning certain subjects. Huxley, who moved to southern California in , was primarily a moral philosopher who used fiction during his early career as a vehicle for ideas; in his later writing, which consists largely of essays, he adopts an overtly didactic tone.

Like his contemporaries D. Lawrence and George Orwell, Huxley abhorred conformity and denounced the orthodox attitudes of his time. The enormous range of his intellect and the pungency of his writing make him one of the most significant voices of the early 20th century.

And the dictator. In conjunction with the freedom to daydream under the influence of dope, the movies and the radio, it will help to reconcile his subjects to the servitude which is their fate. Huxley wrote a letter to Orwell in stating: "The philosophy of the ruling minority in is a sadism which has been carried to its logical conclusion by going beyond sex and denying it.

Whether in actual fact the policy of the boot-on-the-face can go on indefinitely seems doubtful. My own belief is that the ruling oligarchy will find less arduous and wasteful ways of governing and of satisfying its lust for power, and that these ways will resemble those which I described in Brave New World.

Andrijah Puharich was born in He received medical degree from Northwestern University in Reportedly a friend of Aldous Huxley.

In he had first contact with "the Nine", the highest minds in the universe, through a medium. Psychedelics hallucinogens such as mescaline derived from the cactus peyote and psilocybin which comes from a Mexican mushroom were originally eaten by primitive men to induce visions.

Huxley, in his "remarkable work," reported his experiences with mescaline. Huxley's persuasive book was one of the first modern works to put forward any kind of argument for experimental drug taking and it is generally believed to have been responsible for sparking off the wave of semi-intellectual interest in drugs which finds its expression in today's so-called 'drug culture. IHEU represents more than 3 million members in 30 countries.

In British psychiatrists Humphrey Osmond and John Smythies published "A New Approach to Schizophrenia," theorizing that when the body is confronted with extreme anxiety it produces the hallucinogen adrenochrome, inducing schizophrenic or psychotic reactions. The next year they flew out to bring Aldous Huxley a vial of mescaline. Huxley later cabled his editor that mescaline was "the most extraordinary and significant experience available to human beings this side of the Beatific Vision.

In The Doors of Perception he wrote: "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.

Osmond's interest in this field grew out of a fascination with schizophrenia and alcoholism. He went into the Navy once he had qualified for medicine at Guys Hospital in London in Oscar Janiger had his first LSD experience in After a training in botany, he entered the fields of teaching and psychiatry.

He has lectured at UC Irvine and the California College of Surgeons, was research director for the Holmes holistic health Foundation, maintains a private practice, and founded the Albert Hofmann Foundation.

In Huxley's first wife died. In he married Laural Archera. In Heaven and Hell he described the use of mescaline to induce visionary states of mind.

Gordon Wasson, a J. Morgan Vice-President, and his wife, recounted their visionary adventures among "psilocybe cultists in darkest Mexico. In his Brave New World Revisited, Aldous Huxley in described a society in which war had been eliminated and where "the first aim of the rulers is at all costs to keep their subjects from making trouble. The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days.

Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit. His comment about Aryan drug use as part of an elite religious ceremony seems to be historic in nature. There was a priesthood that was very knowledgeable about the effects of drugs.

The Isis cult seems to have also used drugs in its productions. Hitler thought he talked to "the evil one" while on a mescaline trip. When alone or with his inner circle, did he engage in religious ceremonies, evocations or incantations?

Or did they use drugs to get "high? The word "Iran" derives from "Aryan. Brave New World was written before the rise of Hitler to supreme power in Germany and when the Russian tyrant had not yet got into his stride. In , systematic terrorism was not the obsessive contemporary fact which it had become in , and the future dictatorship of my imaginary world was a good deal less brutal than the future dictatorship so brilliantly portrayed by Orwell.

In the context of , seemed dreadfully convincing. But tyrants, after all, are mortal and circumstances change.

Recent developments in Russia and recent advances in science and technology have robbed Orwell's book of some of its gruesome verisimilitude. A nuclear war will, of course, make nonsense of everybody's predictions. But, assuming for the moment that the Great Powers can somehow refrain from destroying us, we can say that it now looks as though the odds were more in favor of something like Brave New World than of something like What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one.

Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared the truth would be concealed from us.

Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy.

As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny 'failed to take into account man's almost infinite appetite for distractions. In short, Orwell feared that what we hate will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we love will ruin us.

He realized his old self was dead, collaborated with Dr. Richard Alpert and discussed the meaning and implication of the new world with Aldous Huxley. When students at Harvard were given mushrooms, they "came up with accounts of mystical experiences which largely duplicated accounts of mystical experiences of Christian saints they had read in books.

Takers of mescaline commonly have similar experiences to Huxley's, just as Huxley's were similar to those reported by earlier experimenters like Havelock Ellis. I could look back and see my body on the bed.

I relived my life, and reexperienced many events I had forgotten. More than that, I went back in time in an evolutionary sense to where I was aware of being a one-celled organism. All of these things were way beyond my mind. Around Aldous Huxley said at a U.

And this seems to be the final revolution. However, Huxley told Leary that the obstacle to the evolution was the Bible: "Drugs that open the mind to multiple realities inevitably lead to a polytheistic view of the universe.

We sensed that the time for a new humanist religion based on intelligence, good-natured pluralism and scientific paganism had arrived. Murphy and Price wrote to Huxley, who believed science and mysticism were complementary activities, and whose elucidation of "the perennial philosophy" and ideas about the human potential shaped Esalen's work for the next 32 years.

It is said that Aldous Huxley, that modern of moderns, went to a few Ouspensky meetings in London. Eventually Huxley settled for Gerald Heard who drew heavily on Eastern philosophy. In Huxley we may find a symptom of a desperate tendency to turn in our crisis to ideas and teachings that stand outside the stream of Western culture.

At Huxley's suggestion, Murphy and Price sought out Gerald Heard, philosopher and mystic, who cast a deep Irish spell with accounts of people and events that revealed the secrets of human transformation. An afternoon with Heard in the summer of , in which Heard displayed his characteristic enthusiasm and sense of a cosmic mandate, confirmed Esalen's two founders in their decision to start a seminar center.

Personal and Social Transformation in Our Time

Esalen's first brochure "flew under the title of a series of lectures by Aldous Huxley: 'Human Potentialities. The institute, which was opened in , conducts workshops, seminars, and symposia.No offense to Ms Ferguson or her publisher, but the title was poorly chosen and does not fit the beautiful content, but that's water under the bridge now.

Tday, 4 Systems of govenment, founded for the previous, America is the creative society; the others, consciously or industrial and pre-industrial paradigms, would no longer unconsciously, are emulative. These are potent books with immediate, practical answers to uplift humanity. Created by ImportBot. In Sir Julian Huxley, called for a radical eugenic policy in UNESCO: "Thus, even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy of controlled human breeding will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake that much that is now unthinkable may at least become thinkable.
