Writer Aldous Huxley predicted today’s world in 1958

Aldous Huxley, 1958 – On a Brave New World

Aldous Huxley, was known for his acid wit and biting social commentary. Born in 1894, Huxley was the descendant of a family of intellectual heavyweights, including his grandfather, Thomas Henry Huxley, who was known as “Darwin’s Bulldog.”

Huxley’s writing career took off in the 1920s with the publication of his novel, “Crome Yellow,” a satire of the British literary establishment. He went on to write many more works of fiction, including the groundbreaking dystopian novel, “Brave New World,” which warned of the dangers of totalitarianism and the loss of individual freedom.

But Huxley was not just a writer; he was also a man of many interests and passions. He experimented with psychedelic drugs and explored the frontiers of consciousness, writing about his experiences in the classic work, “The Doors of Perception.” He also had a keen interest in Eastern spirituality and philosophy, which he explored in works like “The Perennial Philosophy.”

Huxley was a man of contradictions: a skeptic and a mystic, a rationalist and a visionary. He was also a devoted husband and father, known for his charm and wit, as well as his sharp intellect. In the end, Huxley’s life was a testament to the power of the human mind and the importance of questioning authority and conventional wisdom.
