Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Technological Control Individuality BRAVE NEW WORLD THEMES Brave New World brings about the concern that advances in technology can be used as methods of changing the way people think, act, and live. Huxley reveals technological control at the beginning of the novel through the Director's tour of the hatchery, the source of human conditioning. When the reader is thrown into the hatchery in chapter 1, the author is making the technological conditioning of humans seem like the basis of the novel. It's like the book is saying, "before you can understand the rest of this novel, you must first understand that the hatchery puts all humans through technological conditioning."The human conditioning gives every human a level of intelligence which puts them in a certain social class and occupation. Every human is made to like their part in society, as the Director states, "and that ... is the secret of happiness and virtueliking what you've got to do. All conditioning aims at that: making people like their inescapable social destiny." In Brave New World, one of the World State's main goals is to prevent Individuality. With no individuality, people will act and think the same, creating a stable society. "Community, Identity, Stability" is the World State's motto, which states its goals. Identity is where humans are identified and put into their social class, which is their inevitable and inescapable fate. This identification is done through the human conditioning process, which ruins humans individuality. Huxley reveals individuality through the creation of the social classes and human conditioning, which are revealed to the reader through the World State's motto and the Director's tour of the hatchery. Technological control directly affects individuality in the World State through human conditioning Decline of individuality
