Transcript: Explanation This will affect our lives tremendously because, if our organs are cloned at birth, later in life, problems like a dysfunctional kidney will be easily solvable because you will have a perfect donor match: yourself. This will also prevent a lot of animals from being slaughtered because you can clone the harvested species instead of slaughtering animals over and over. The Positive Effects noun 1. Biology. a) a cell, cell product, or organism that is genetically identical to the unit or individual from which it was derived. b) a population of identical units, cells, or individuals that derive from the same ancestral line. Dictionary.com -Through cloning ourselves, we are able to to be an organ donnor without lossing our organs for potential future needs -This is important because some people are suffering from cancers and other diseases, and in need of organ transplants, so this could potentially be a huge leap to improve the health of millions. Ethics -Any species can be healed and treated as needed through being donated organs from its healthy previously cloned organs. Endangered CLONING Critically endangered species can be cloned to keep the species alive. Effects on life Only few of each species are needed for agriculture because there may be a specific chicken who's DNA is perfect for laying the most elite eggs, so each ideal chicken for that task can be cloned millions of times so we are only eating eggs from the best chickens. Agriculture Ourselves

Huxley's genetically created humans "useful intellectual conditioning" (18) The idea behind it? ~ a baby that can be created to have specific traits that parents want in their child "major instruments of social stability" So basically... ~a baby whose genetic makeup has been artificially selected by genetic engineering combined with in vitro fertilisation to ensure the presence or absence of particular genes or characteristics "These... are the incubators" (5) "We predestine and condition" (13) vs. "They were inspected for abnormalities" (5) What's a designer baby? Making connections... Concept of "designer babies" "dosed almost to death with alcohol" (7) Brave New World: Creating Humans "Nothing like an oxygen shortage to keep an embryo below par" (14) Those who think that genetically creating babies is a good idea believe that it is our moral responsibility to improve the health, intelligence, and physical capabilites of individuals if we have the technology to do so.

Transcript: Aldous Huxley Prospero alone seems to understand that controlling history enables one to control the present--that is, that one can control others by controlling how they understand the past. John The Savage & Lenina: "She's so High" Tal Bachman The process is applied to fertilized human eggs in vitro, causing them to split into identical genetic copies of the original. "Her eyes, her hair, her cheek, her gait, her voice; handest in thy disclosure O!" Brave New World This in comparison also shows the controll of society and how they view religion and traditional relationships. Bokanovsky Process First Class and Fancy Free She's high Society She's got the best of everything What could a guy like me Ever Really offer? She's perfect as she can be Why should I even bother? Equilibrium The Tempest In a Futuristic world, a strict regime has eliminated war by supressing emotions: books, art and music are strictly forbidden and feeling is a crime punishable by death. A man misses a dose of promium, a mind altering drug that hinders emotion. Artist: Christophe Delhaye Date Created: 2008 Description: Slogan of the 60's during the war of Vietnam. At first the art appears to be a Kalashnikov (rifle) associated with war, but at second glance it is made up of couples; associated with love. Henry Ford created a faster way to produce automobiles and revolutionized industrial production. Henry Ford Presented by Brittany Bailey Jenny Phan Sara Gift A fictional process of human cloning that is a key aspect of the world envisioned in Brave New World Make Love Not War 1863-1947 Society in the futuristic Brave New World, uses Ford as their "God" and demonstrates his ideas through mass production of human embryos and specifically organized life styles. Industrial Revolution & Mass Production The drug Soma, a mind altering drug, also suppresses emotion by creating a fantasy world of bliss.
Transcript: "...if ever by some unlucky chance such a crevice of time should yawn in the solid substance of their distractions, there is always soma, delicious soma, half a gramme for a half-holiday, a gramme for a week-end, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon; returning whence they find themselves on the other side of the crevice, safe on the solid ground of daily labour and distraction..." "...by the scandalous unorthodoxy of his sex-life, by his refusal to obey the teachings of Our Ford and behave out of office hours.." A big part of The Brave New Worlds society was based on sex and they believed if you just stayed with one person you were weird and you were supposed to have a lot of different partners. Today in our society sex is degraded by people around us and the media that it just seems like we are in the middle of the Savage reservation and The Brave New World. Our society is filled with consumerism everybody buys things they don't need. When apple comes out with a new product people in my society get it in a heart beat and forget about the old ones when there was nothing wrong with them and that goes for a lot of things: clothes, cars, tvs, etc. "Distraction from mortality and distraction from God are the historical starting points for this line of thought... we might foolishly imagine that the possession of the objects of our quest would make us really happy." " Imagine the folly of allowing people to play elaborate games which do nothing whatever to increase consumption. It's madness." "Obsessed by the exploitative nature of production, Marx tended to think of consumption strictly as an auxiliary process that accomplished two purposes; it circulated goods and replenished the laborers powers." Drugs in our society are almost as prevalent as they were in Brave New World. I see something about drugs everyday and a lot of people say its a good thing just like they explained soma in the book. There is a lot of drug use in our society today and it makes a lot of people think they are getting away from our distopia of a society.

Transcript: In the World State, people are not born by mother, but cultivated in the conditioning center. All of them are not grow equally and are divided into different hierarchy when they are still embryos. They cannot choose the things they like and pursue their own dreams but are demanded to do specific jobs. They don’t have emotions since the world controller believe it’s dangerous to stability. To make people believe what they are supposed to do, they even use hypnopaedia. The humanity is unnecessary in this society since the center-controlled lifestyle. We want to say: Being human Chapter 2 They criticize today’s world also. •More intellectual and philosophical complaints•Wants to write something with meaning •“Words can be like X-rays, if you use them properly they’ll go through anything.” What do you think about the “happy” society in the book? Huxley’s Utopia They think what the way they live is comfortable and happy. It's called hypnopædia. And people should only feel and do what they should do on their class.

They enforced the Delta babies to be afraid of the books and flowers by using the conditioned reflex method, which was making some frighten scenes like explosions, ringing bells and shriek of the siren when the babies were touching something with a happy mood, so that the infants won't get in touch with the books and flowers in their whole life.

Transcript: Brave New World .vs. "Brave New World" Dying swans twisted wings, beauty not needed here Lost my love, lost my life, in this garden of fear I have seen many things, in a lifetime alone Mother love is no more, bring this savage back home Wilderness house of pain, makes no sense of it all Close this mind dull this brain, Messiah before his fall What you see is not real, those who know will not tell All is lost sold your souls to this brave new world A brave new world, in a brave new world A brave new world, in a brave new world In a brave new world, a brave new world In a brave new world, a brave new world Dragon kings dying queens, where is salvation now Lost my life lost my dreams, rip the bones from my flesh Silent screams laughing here, dying to tell you the truth You are planned and you are damned in this brave new world A brave new world, in a brave new world A brave new world, in a brave new world In a brave new world, a brave new world In a brave new world, a brave new world A brave new world, in a brave new world A brave new world, in a brave new world In a brave new world, a brave new world In a brave new world, a brave new world Dying swans twisted wings, bring this savage back home The song "Brave New World" by Iron Maiden, has very strong similarities to the book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. LINES OF THE SONG THAT RELATE TO THE BOOK... 1."beauty not needed here"- In the story, looks do not matter, as you are born into your class, and there's no moving away from that. There is a lack of competition amongst people, so looks do not play a big role in this story. 2. "lost my love, lost my life, in this garden of fear"- Within the book, you are not given a choice of your life; your career is chosen for you. You lack the choice of love, as it does not exist in this story. The garden of fear represents the Brave New World, that they've lost love and life to. 3. "I have seen many things in this lifetime alone"- This can be related to that Bernard Marx has seen life completely different than the others, and that makes him alone in this world. 4. "mother love is no more, bring this savage back home"- This being related to the story, is true because in the book, there are no "mothers" to love. When they venture into New Mexico with the savages, most want to return home, to what they know. 5. "close this mind, dull this brain"- This line refers to how people's minds and creativity is gone, they can't just roam their minds. Their brain is dulled so they do not think like Bernard Marx does. When someone begins to think that way, a dose of soma relives them of this, and really does dull their brain. 6. "what you see, it's not real, those who know, will not tell"- This is how we believe Mustapha is. He knows how the world really once was, but he doesn't tell. He wants everyone to believe the world they live in now, is all they should know of, even though it's not a "real" society, and how the world used to be. 7. "all is lost, sold your soul to this Brave New World"- The people in this world, lack individuality and self-being; their souls. To live in a Brave New World, you must be willing to sell your soul, to make that society work. 8. "silent screams laughing here, dying to tell you the truth"- Whenever someone notices something wrong, they almost get a notion of saying something about it, but they know not to. They resort to a dose of soma, to relieve them of these "thoughts" and remain laughing and happy, like the line in the song states. 9. "you are planned and you are damned in this Brave New World"- In the tale of Brave New World, literally, you are planned. They begin this process in the hatchery, and plan which class you'll be in, your career, and everything about you. Damned you are, in this World, because this where you must remain. Stuck in a lifeless society, with a lack of individuality. We conclude that this song is an accurate portrayal of the book Brave New World. By: Josh Chance Jovi Antonio Anthony and Korey.
