I just reread Aldous Huxley’s Island and I want to encourage you to get yourself a copy as soon as you can (or to read the PDF below). This book isn’t a novel but rather a manifesto. The final work of Huxley is a sociological blueprint, a manual for living, loving and dying. His legacy so to speak, leaving us his vision of paradise within reach. It’s a powerful inspiration to live a life devoted to strive for ones highest potential as a human being.
