contemporary fictions of future societies Orwell s 1984 for example and Huxley s Brave New World in its view of human society as doomed to dark collapse under a weight of population and totalitarian controlIn a far future Earth our distant descendants have been altered genetically to allow them to live in ultra crowded hives The genes that code for aggression when people are pressed too closely
