William Blake, Aldous Huxley and Jim Morrison

William Blake wrote The Marriage of Heaven and Hell during the late 17th century.

Aldous Huxley gets inspired by this work and names his book "The Doors of Perception", his experience with mescaline in 1954.

Then Jim Morrison names his infamous band "The Doors" after Aldous Huxley's book The Doors of Perception.

"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".
