Distraction, Aldous Huxley & the Not So "Brave New World" | Down South Anomalies #80

Are we all drowning in a sea of desire and mistaking it for our individual freedom. Philosopher and author Aldous Huxley foretold this future nearly 100 years ago in his fictional work Brave New World. The advent of the computer, the mobile phone, the home cinema and virtual reality, we now appear to be lost in a world of distraction and superficial satiation with no idea of who our authentic selves are. "There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self." Aldous Huxley
