Firestarter by Stephen King;A Brave New World by Aldus Huxley.Altering genes for better or for worse always is going to get both negative and positive reactions. Both Stephen King and Aldus Huxley's books deal with genetic alteration. Stephen King has been more of a horror writer, whereas Aldus Huxley writes mainly on scientific satire. So it is fit to say that the genetic Lot 6 experiments are made to cause horror, in Firestarter, whereas, the Bokonovsky genetic Process is made to simply be scientific satire in A Brave New World. Throughout this essay both genetic processes will be explained, as well as their background in each book.A Brave New World starts off in the Central London Hatching and Conditioning Centre, where the Director of the Hatchery and an assistant give a tour to a group of boys. They learn about the Bokanovsky and Podsnap Processes, as well as the five castes, Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon. The Alpha embryos are fated with becoming the leaders and thinkers of the World State; while each of the later castes is conditioned to be slightly less physically and intellectually imposing. The Epsilons, who are stunted and stunned by oxygen deprivation and chemical treatments, are destined to perform basic jobs. A quote that helps show this is, "...'the lower the caste,'...'the shorter the oxygen.'...'But in Epsilons,'...'we don't need human intelligence.'..." This quote shows that the Epsilons are disregarded so much that they don't even need human intelligence. As the book progresses the main characters, which either work for the Director or are from one of the castes, have sexual interactions and eventually one kills himself. The next paragraph will show you how the process actually works.The Bokonovsky Process is a very organized and complete process. Gamma and Delta's go to the point that they are divided to form up to ninety-six identical embryos, which then expand into ninety-six identical human beings. Alpha and Beta embryos never undergo this dividing process, as it can weaken the embryos. A process that is associated with the Bokonovsky Process is Podsnap's Technique which speeds up the ripening process of eggs within a single ovary. With this method, hundreds of related individuals can be produced from the ova and sperm of the same man and woman within two years. During the gestation period the embryos travel in bottles along a conveyor belt through a factory like building. Another process affected by Bokanovsky's is the "hypnopaedic" (sleep-teaching) methods used to teach children the morals of the World State. In a room where older children are napping, a whispering voice will be repeating a lesson.The results of this, Bokanovsky Processes are that thousands of nearly identical human embryos, which are conditioned to belong to one of five castes Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, or Epsilon. In the Nursery, certain castes get programmed, like the Delta infants being reprogrammed to dislike books and flowers: "...'They'll...
