Aldous Huxley’s vision of this world technology was far beyond his time despite being written in 1932. “Brave New World” technology is so advanced they can predetermine your intelligence “…we don’t need human intelligence.” (Chapter 1). Even when sleeping you can memorize because a recording is played over and over again and teaches and conditions one, which is called hypnopaedic. The technology overpowers the uses of one’s mind and doesn’t give them the freedom to express their feelings. “All conditioning aims at that: making people like their unescapable social destiny.” (Chapter 1).
