The Dreamatists notes that Friday marked the 50th anniversary of novelist Aldous Huxley’s passing in what may be the ideal way to die:

Laura Huxley described: “I went into Aldous’s room with the vial of LSD and prepared a syringe. The doctor asked me if I wanted him to give the shot. I said, ‘No, I must do this.”

An hour later she gave Huxley a second 100mm. Then she began to talk, bending close to his ear, whispering, “light and free you let go, darling; forward and up. You are going forward and up; you are going toward the light. … You are going toward the best, the greatest love, and it is easy, it is so easy, and you are doing it so beautifully.”

The breathing became slower and slower and slower until, ‘like a piece of music just finishing so gently in sempre piu piano, dolcamente,’ at twenty past five in the afternoon, Aldous Huxley died.”
