Brave New World

Designed humans.

I have been rereading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. It was originally published in 1932. One of the concepts he describes is the production of humans and their indoctrination. So in his Brave New World there are no mothers and fathers, no birth, just an assembly line state controlled process where people are produced. There are Alphas, Betas, Gammas, and Epsilons. Each class is destined and produced for a specific "station" in life.

This piece is about humans somewhere in-between Huxley's vision and today's capability. At some in-between point our babies may have a lot of trouble recognizing their parent with all their modifications. 

Yet bonding is what we seek.
