Brave New World Brave New World was written by Aldous Huxley in 1932 It is a look at the future of the world through the eyes of the writer The book depicts a society where people are produced instead of being conceived naturally The population consists of 5 castes Alpha Beta Gamma Delta and Epsilon The Alpha embryos are designed to become the leaders and thinkers of the World Each of the following castes are conditioned through oxygen deprivation and electro-shock treatments to be slightly less physically and mentally refined The Epsilons for example are stunted by treatments of chemicals among other things as they are nothing but laborers The novel opens in the Central London Hatching and Conditioning Center where the Director of the Hatchery is giving a tour to a group of boys The boys learn about the Bokanovsky Process that allows the Hatchery to produce thousands of human embryos in a very short amount of time The World State at this time is a very odd place It seems as if everyone is addicted to Soma A drug with no harmful side effects It is also not uncommon for orgies to break out among the people Children growing up are encouraged to play erotic games and flaunt their sexuality Through all this one must wonder that if everyone looks the same and if there are constant orgies what are the chances that you will be involved with someone that looks exactly like you It is this among other instances of total ridiculousness that leads me to believe that this book is not only a glance at the possible outcome of the future but it is also a product of Huxleys dream world He made things out to be so different than what they were at the time as well as now that it seems surreal It is possible however to compare Huxleys world to todays society If a person from 1932
