He gives his students a tour of the Central London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre. Also I learn that people do not give birth to living people; they are created in this factory. There are different fertilization methods that create Alphas, Betas, Gammas,Deltas, and Epsilons. These humans have roles in this society, which is called the World State. The motto of this society is Community,Identity, and Stability. Another character is Henry Foster and he also works at this factory.Lenina Crowne is another worker whose job is to give vaccinations. There are nurseries and some of the babies get shocked to cause them to dislike books and flowers so they do not spend time on those objects. The director states that there is sleep teaching.
