Today is the 47th anniversary of the death of JFK.
Everyone knows that.
Today is also the 47th anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis.
Many Christians know that.
Today is also the 47th anniversary of the death of Aldous Huxley.
I really have no idea who all knows that. I knew it but had forgotten it until relatively recently.
I’ve really been enjoying Huxley’s The Perennial Philosophy. It was his attempt to recount various religious methods of achieving contact with the divine.
He later appears to have jettisoned this disciplined effort for the easier route of LSD.
