's review

it was amazing

The Doors of Perception takes its title from a William Blake poem and is a classic of its kind. My version of the book also included Heaven and Hell as well as an essay on the reasons why people take intoxicants of all kinds. Reading all this information, it seems to me that mescaline is non-addictive and an alternative to both drugs and alcohol with none of the side effects. Mescaline can be created synthetically so why don't more people use it to investigate their inner minds and unconscious and to introduce some mysticism in their lives?

Julian Worker Before you start this book make sure to find out what 'antipodes' and 'preternaturally' mean, as the author uses these words a lot.

message 2: by Coeruleum (new) - added it

Coeruleum Honestly, you should just know what those words mean in general because they’re good words.
