The Doors

Posted to What Are You Reading?

The Doors got their name essentially from the Blake quote: 'When the doors of perception are cleansed..etc' which is where Huxley got his title although I guess the Doors were probably influenced by this book too, especially Morrison and his copious LSD/Mescaline intake at the time!

Its really interesting about the valve/filter concept...makes you question whether insanity isn't just misunderstood or wrongly directed genius.
