75 years later it's still infinitely exhilarating
I've been reading Huxley's book: Those Barren Leaves. I'm amazed as I turn the pages, how much of his writing, circa 1936, feels so current.
"The sense that everything's perfectly provisional and temporary – everything, from social institutes to what we've hitherto regarded as the most sacred scientific truths – the feeling that nothing, from the Treaty of Verrsailles to the rationally explicable universe, is really safe, the intimate conviction that anything may happen, anything may be discovered – another way, the artificial creation of life, the proof of continued existence after death – why, it's all infinitely exhilarating." Those Barren Leaves, Aldous Huxley 1949
