The Role of Technology in Huxley's Brave New World Essay

1099 Words5 Pages

Technology, which has brought mankind from the Stone Age to the 21st century, can also ruin the life of peoples. In the novel Brave New World, the author Aldous Huxley shows us what technology can do if we exercise it too much. From the novel we can see that humans can lose humanity if we rely on technology too much. In the novel, the author sets the world in the future where everything is being controlled by technology. This world seems to be a very perfectly working utopian society that does not have any disease, war, problems, crisis but it is also a sad society with no feelings, emotions or human characteristics. This is a very scary society because everything is being controlled even before someone is born, in test tube, where they…show more content…

They didn’t sent them to school to learn new things rather provide shock. Therefore, technology is so harmful and so disturbing in this society that the people are not themselves.
In this novel, we can see how technology can affect the person ever since they are in a test tube. Technology is used so excessively that they can determine how smart or intelligent you are going to be. This can make you the smartest person in the whole world or the not so smart person. As stated by Mr. Foster, “The Lower……..the oxygen” (11). He is trying to imply that even if you try to become smarter than you are you cannot do such deal because you were already destined to how smart you can be. It is predetermined and there is nothing you could do to stop it. The process is all done while you are still an embryo. The height, weight, size, color, and even their intelligence level is determined before they are born.
One of the most usefulness of technology in this book is sleep teaching. This is a process where someone is exposed to certain information they are to know and they have to listen it for numerous hours so they could get it stuck in their head. When they wake up, its already in their head like they were so conditioned for it that they did not even have to put any effort to get it memorized. This is a pretty nice process but you might be only conditioned to stuff that the government think is going to be right for their benefit. They are not going to do anything that will cause a

The role of Technology in Today’s World and in the Future

Source: http://techinfopluz.blogspot.com.es/2011/02/robots-and-human-future-world.html

Technology is an essential part of our lives today and few can imagine living without. We achieved a lot with the help of technology, for example we have the possibility to travel, keep in touch with friends on the other side of the earth and cure many illnesses. It means more freedom and choices for people but at the same time we have to consider the social imbalance, weapons of mass destruction and natural resource depletion. Jane Godall asks for a reason: “We are the most intelligent species walking on earth, how it comes we destroy on what we depend?” What has achieved so far is irrevocable, but we can still determine where it goes in the future.

One of the most important things everybody has to deal with is to overcome the short-termism, which prevails in governments, companies and individuals. Additionally we know, that decisions one individual takes are not necessarily good for the society as a whole. This doesn’t make it easier.

I think it is important to bear in mind the mutual goal: to keep the planet with mankind and all its beautiful animals and plants alive. This implies to make technology as positive as possible for humanity and the environment in the long run. The technology we create now creates the future and it should be for the people and make things easier and not more complicated. So what kind of society will we be?

Technology shapes the future and it can help to make it compatible with nature. It can help us to develop clean energy, transport possibilities with less emissions and low-energy houses to save resources. Technology is not only about technology itself or more efficiency and discovering new methods and processes; we have to add the component of art which is about to make wise choices for the future of technology. We should not develop technology because of itself, but to develop it, because it adds value to society and simplifies human life. For this, it needs to be discussed with experts from many fields and we have to relate the technology to the organization and the culture in which it should operate. And remember: There are no side effects – they are part of the technology.
