Twenty years after Brave New World was published, Aldous Huxley, in 1952, used LSD for the first time. Ten years later, in 1962, he used it for the last time, having requested it as his means of easy passage through the doorways of perception. Perhaps he preferred using the latter to avoid having to live through the former --the New World of soma and Newspeak--or watch its slow persistent encroachment on the hearts and minds of those who were natively participants of the American experiment in brave freedom and individual responsibility.
