Take this into consideration and acknowledge how it could impact humanity, as well as the cloned human. The advancing technology allows individuals to have the freedom of bringing their prescience about cloning humans into a reality, faster than one could imagine. One mistake could entirely deteriorate humankind more than benefit it. In today’s quickly-advancing technological age, human cloning is possible; however, it is unethical because it diminishes individuality, interferes with nature, and increases the risk of fatal failures. In this world we live for the sake of individuality and what makes a person different from the other seven billion people.
Drug use is also present in both societies, whether legal or illegal. Today’s society has a large dependence on drugs including the rising rates of opioid addiction as well as more states considering the legalization of marijuana, which can be compared to the novel’s drug, soma. Another similarity in the advancement of technology is, the way that offspring are created. In the twenty first century there is in vitro-fertilization, where the egg is fertilized by the sperm outside the body in a test tube and in the novel offspring are created in bottles and are decanted, instead of born. However, in the twenty first century the embryo is inserted back into the mother or surrogate’s uterus, unlike in the brave new world.
Rearing Petrochek patent, although Seltek would like to sell it along with the plant as a full offering package, it was not valuable for us at all. Petrochek was just used to solve water pollution problem and was not related to our business. Besides, our top management team also did not want to buy Petrochek patent. Therefore, we did not intend to buy it unless they offered a appealing price, for example, half of market price. Then we might buy it and sell at the market price afterwards to obtain an additional
Mustapha Mond explains to John that books are prohibited because these people “couldn’t understand it.” I see this in society today as well. Nobody cares to know where their clothing comes from or where their plastic trash goes to because society has made it irrelevant. It is just simply something that is not spoken about and nobody cares to speak about it. The truth of sweatshops, inhumane working conditions, and landfills is drowned in a sea of irrelevance because the government does not want to make it relevant. Consequently, most people do not realize these problems
Another reason as to why the government may not want to legalize such substances because they are probably fixated on the small number of people who use these substances and have bad trips or accidents. Though it is not wrong to consider such outcomes, I think that they should revisit what these drugs could positively do. There are cases where LSD and psilocybin are used medically. In fact, I just read an article that explained how LSD could help with terminally ill patients and alleviate the anxiety of death. All in all, I think the government should reconsider the legalization of LSD especially if it’s in a controlled setting and has a high potential for medical
The importance of therapeutic cloning technologies to the Human race The topic therapeutic cloning became popular worldwild after Dolly’s birth, which its entrance to this world marked a remarkable turning point into biological sciencie. Human cloning and its technology are important and should be continued because of the cures to diseases may be found, genetic problems may be discovered and solved, and more medical innovations may be produced in order to help the human life. This paper aims to discuss the concept of cloning, its benefits and how this may affect the future of the human race. Many people became familiar and first heard about cloning when Dolly (first sheep cloned by a scientist) was published and showed up on the news in
When Huxley wrote the novel Brave New World he envisioned a world 600 years in the future. Although many of the things that Huxley writes about is very farfetched, other things are relatable, in fact some of them have already occurred. For example Huxley states that in the future we will have the ability to create children in test tube, modern day science has enabled us to come very close to that very same prediction. “The complete mechanisms were inspected by eighteen identical curly auburn girls in Gamma green, packed in crates by thirty four short legged, left-handed male Delta Minuses, and loaded into the waiting trucks and lorries by sixty three blue-eyed, flaxen and freckled Epsilon Semi Morons” (p.160). This is an example from the book about how they create the children.
According to History.com, from 1953-73, the government tested the mind control effects Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) on both consenting and unconsenting participants. The hallucogines were intended to make the test subjects more docile and easier to command; this was also the premeditated function of Soma in the novel. Soma sent users into a euphoric state, making them content with the oppressive circumstances of World State. Thoughts of revolts and societal change eluded substance soaked minds, giving the government a strong sense of security and control. Even though Huxley could not predict the future, themes of Brave New World became clearly prevalent in our society after his popular work came to light.
3398). Although thinking and creativity was enhanced, it was believed that ayahuasca improve mood; while drug users all had different experiences using ayahuasca; ayahuasca use in patients increases openness to many creative ideas but was in decline when using one way to problem solve “In contrast, convergent thinking and mood are related in a negative way: more positive mood lowers convergent thinking.” (Kuypers, K. P. C., et. al 2016, Pg. 3401). Ayahuasca holds promise as a psychedelic due to its divergent properties while assisted in psychotherapy.
The information above refers alcohol and smoke consumption have frequently reduced, which represents suppression success. The alleviation of drugs that around the world are trying to achieve can also be successful in the same way by using drug legalization. Once drugs become legal, the world will change. Instead of utilizing the old techniques, authenticity ought to be reported for all menacing pills which will prepare more simplicity for social control. It will reinforce the accessibility of government to give the anti-drug notion to the nation.
