Brave New World by Aldous Huxley ‘‘The overalls of the workers were white, their hands gloved with a pale corpse-coloured rubber. The light was frozen, dead, a ghost. Only from the yellow barrels of the microscopes did it borrow a certain rich and living substance, lying along the polished tubes like butter, streak after luscious streak in long recession down the work tables’’ (Huxley 8). 1. This is the narrator describing the uniform of the Conditioning Centre. 2. Everything in the centre was perfectly controlled by science. 3. Science controlled everything instructing individuals to do its demands; abolishing what would have been a natural human life. 4. I sometimes wonder how we would be if we were controlled by some supernatural power. “They’ll grow up with what the psychologists used to call an ‘instinctive’ hatred of books and flowers. Reflexes unalterably conditioned. They’ll be safe from books and botany all their lives. ” The Director turned to his nurses. “Take them away again. ” (Huxley 23)1. This is the Director telling the boys how the Alpha embryos are meant to think. 2. Nature has now plance in this new manly world. 3. If there is no nature, then there would not be a natural instinct in how the embryos would act. 4. It makes me want to keep reading and find out what will happen with the embryos. ‘‘Roses and electric shocks, the khaki of Deltas and a whiff of asaf? tida – wedded indissolubly before the child can speak. But wordless conditioning is crude and wholesale; cannot bring home the finer distinctions, cannot inculcate the more complex courses of behaviour. For that there must be words, but words without reason. In brief, hypnop? dia’’ (Huxley 45). 1. The Director presents the notion of hypnopaedia to the children taking the tour. 2. World State uses the sleep-teaching method to teach children their morals. 3. The World State purpose is to have a total control of the people and made them follow their principles. 4. I totally disagree with being brainwashed. As humans we have a right to free will. “Just to give you a general idea,” he would explain to them. For of course some sort of general idea they must have, if they were to do their work intelligently – though as little of one, if they were to be good and happy members of society, as possible. For particulars, as every one knows, make for virtue and happiness; generalities are intellectually necessary evils. Not philosophers but fret-sawyers and stamp collectors compose the backbone of society’’ (Huxley 68). 1. The World Sate Director tells the children of their power of mind on the people. 2. The World State is connected to what they think is a danger to society. 3. With a blissfull knowledge, who would question for more when everyone thinks and does the same. 4. Even by viewing it on a different perspective, I still think that wanting to control everyone’s minds is just wrong. Each and everyone of us has the gift of being unique.
