This book lets us share the author's view of the future. Aldous Huxley is indeed convinced that this story may be translated into reality very soon, considering that totalitarianism systems already exist in certain countries. In this document, we will analyze the different themes tackled in this story, but will not try to determine whether such a society can become a reality some day. Let's start with the idea of cloning. In the world described by A.Huxley, every human is conceived in a test tube. The first implication is that no one has parents any more. All the earth's citizens are "born" in laboratories, and a lot of them look exactly like each other. Thanks to scientific methods, 96 identical persons can exist at the same time! What a frightening prospect it is! This idea appears funny today, as it is completely impossible to realize, not for scientific reasons, but for ethical reasons. If a person expressed the desire to implement the idea, he would probably be considered a fool. Who could wish that almost 100 persons be the same? And what would it be useful for?
