The doors of perception - Aldous Huxley

This photo was taken in La maison Roche-Jeanneret / Fondation Le Corbusier, Paris, 2008. The house was designed by Le Corbusier, and built in 1923-24.
Aldous Huxley was an English writer. The doors of perception was first published in 1954. The title comes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell"If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.".

"It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one's life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than 'try to be a little kinder.'"
