This type of society appears ideal and civil; however, it iscorrupt and has many flaws throughout the system. A Brave New Worldis set in A.D. 2540 in a futuristic technological society where the practice of marriage and family is looked down upon, science is used to maintain a stable society, and the human population is divided into social classes based on knowledge and job type. The new world controllers have absolute power in every aspect of life, and technology slowly corrupts those in this society. Huxley shows what theabuse and overuse of technology can do which leads to the loss of humanity in the end. Everyone has lost their sense of feeling and emotion and on top of that, they were controlled from childbirth since they were born through a mass production process in test tubes. Technology is related to humanity in Brave New World by dehumanizing oneself, distracting us from what is really important, and it is similar to what we experience as a society today. In Brave New World, Huxley illustrates that the moment each child was born in the society,they destined to be something they could not choose, thus dehumanizing them from birth. Natural childbirth was shunned upon and instead, children would be born through a process of fertilization. The director of the society explains to onlookers about the entire process, “One egg, one embryo, one adult – normality. But a bokanovskified egg will bud, will proliferate, willdivide. From eight to ninety-six buds, and every bud will grow into a perfectly formed embryo,
3and every embryo into a full-sized adult. Making ninety-six human beings grow where only one grew before” (Huxley, 17).
