“Brave New World” – Notes
Theme
o John is fascinated by the technology all the nice games you could play, and the delicious
things to eat and drink, and the light that came when you pressed a little thing in the wall,
and the pictures that you could hear and feel and smell, as well as see, and another box
for making nice smells, and the pink and green and blue and silver houses as high as
mountains, and everybody happy and no one ever sad or angry, and everyone belonging
to everyone else, and the boxes where you could see and hear what was happening at the
other side of the world, and babies in lovely clean bottles everything so clean, and no
nasty smells, no dirt at all and people never lonely, but living together and being so
jolly and happy” (124-125).
o The new world is planned to start all at once “o brave new world that has such people in
it. Let’s start at once” (135).
o Scientist were looking at new spermatozoa’s “under the microscopes, their long tails
furiously lashing, spermatozoa were burrowing head first into eggs; and, fertilized, the
eggs were expanding, dividing, or if bokanovskified, budding and breaking up into whole
populations of separate embryos” (141).
o The World Controllers keep third of the population on land for reproduction of food we
prefer to keep a third of the population on the land. For their own sakes because it takes
longer to get food out of the land than out of a factory” (212).
o Mustapha Mond believes making other people happy is something hard to accomplish I
rather regret the science. Happiness is a hard master particularly other people's
happiness. A much harder master, if one isn't conditioned to accept it unquestioningly,
than truth

o Mustapha Mond believes that god is the one behind all sciences “God isn't compatible
with machinery and scientific medicine and universal happiness” (221).
o The author brings us back to the beginning of the Brave New World “slowly, very
slowly, like two unhurried compass needles, the feet turned towards the right; north,
north-east, east, south-east, south, south-south-west; then paused, and, after a few
seconds, turned as unhurriedly back towards the left. South-south-west, south, south-east,
east” (243).
o Bernard did not see any point in suffering “when the other boys were sent out to spend
the night on the mountains you know, when you have to dream which your sacred
animal is they wouldn't let me go with the others; they wouldn't tell me any of the
secrets. I did it by myself, though," he added. "Didn't eat anything for five days and then
went out one night alone into those mountains there” (133).
