    Better Living Through Chemistry doesn't have to be just a snappy slogan. Society is stratified by genetically-predestined caste. Justified or unjustified, his happiness, like our own today, will always be vulnerable to disappointment. This doesn't normally restrain us. Whereas, if he had the smallest sense, he'd understand that his punishment is really a reward. For the most part, even the Alphas don't do anything more exalted than play Obstacle Golf.

    It takes him ages to learn Mandarin so he can explain himself. The Dark Age of primordial Darwinian life is about to pass into history. Surely any utopia can go terribly wrong? Could they have lost true critical insight, even if they retain its shadowy functional analogues? The extremes of so-called "mental" pain can be no less dreadful.

    But resort to such coinages isn't a retreat into obscurantism or mystery-mongering. For it's the havoc wrought on the lives of others which makes the uncontrolled exuberance of frank euphoric mania so disastrous. We can understand why depressive states evolved among social animals in terms of the selective advantage of depressive behaviour in reinforcing adaptive patterns of dominance and subordination, avoiding damaging physical fights with superior rivals, or of inducing hypercholinergic frenzy of reflective thought when life goes badly wrong - for one's genes. Early child-rearing practices aside, it's not a study of physically violent totalitarianism. Even then, none of the utopians of any caste come across as very happy.

An exaggeration?

Three Lives Three Worlds, The Pillow Book

It's not what we might intuitively expect. So far, it has identified planets. Citing the ill-effects of Brave New World is not the same as impugning its author's motives. To bring in cash he had been writing fantasy novels at a very rapid rate since earlyand from early the editorial work was given to various others, primarily Charles Platt and Langdon Jones.

The lower orders are at least as happy as the Alphas thanks to soma, childhood conditioning and their brain-damaged incapacity for original thought. The endless cycle of ups and downs - our own private re-enactment of the myth of Sisyphus - is an "adaptation" that helps selfish genes to leave more copies of themselves; in Nature, alas, the restless malcontents genetically out-compete happy lotus-eaters.

By expanding the range of potential activities we enjoy, enhanced dopamine function will ensure we will be less likely to get stuck in a depressive rut. We sympathise. How is it possible to make such predictions with any confidence? Roelvink takes actor network and performativity theories of action as starting points for thinking about how contemporary collectives bring the new into being.

Solitude is discouraged. If one wants to be Master Of The Universe, then so be it: a chacun son gout. One may be confident that other people are using the term in the same way only in virtue of their physiological similarity to oneself, not through any set of operationally defined criteria.

This rut leads to the kind of learned helplessness that says nothing will do any good, Nature will take its revenge, and utopias will always go wrong.

It's not really a utopian wonderdrug at all. The Savage, in particular, is an implausibly articulate vehicle for Huxley's own sympathies. The worry that we ourselves might ever suffer a similar fate is unsettling and depressing. Even if a power-tripper's fantasy wish-fulfilment is confined to private universes, we are still likely to view it as an unnerving prospect.

They must be replaced by an international biomedical research program of paradise-engineering. Yet it's more akin to a hangoverless tranquilliser or an opiate - or a psychic anaesthetising SSRI like Prozac - than a truly life-transforming elixir.

For sure, the Brave New Worlders are typically happy rather than depressed. For we are unhappy pigs, and our own arts are mood-congruent perversions. P h i l i s t i n e Brave New World is a stupid society.

Strange New Worlds: The Search for Alien Planets and Life Beyond the Solar System

It doesn't catalyse any mystical epiphanies, intellectual breakthroughs or life-defining insights. A few centuries hence, we may rapidly take [im]material opulence for granted.

Worse, it is suggested that the price of universal happiness will be the sacrifice of the most hallowed shibboleths of our culture: "motherhood", "home", "family", "freedom", even "love".

Yet are we rationally entitled to pass a judgement on any drug-based civilisation based on one fictional model? In later life, Huxley himself modified his antipathy to drug-assisted paradise.

New Worlds was a British science fiction magazine that began in as a fanzine called Novae Terrae. John Carnell, who became Novae Terrae ' s editor inrenamed it New Worlds that year. He was instrumental in turning it into a professional publication in Categories: Science fiction magazine.

Brave New World is more than dystopian sci-fi; it’s a novel of ideas and discussion. I had never heard of the book before in my life. With my interest in dystopian worlds and lives, this book seemed like a good on to read. And it was. The narrator's performance was good and the storyline, as eccentric as it turned out to be, was very.
