The notion I’m going to deal with is The Idea of progress. The subject of my oral presentation will be scientific advances for the future (les avancées scientifique pour l’avenir).

First, I would like to illustrate this notion through a first extract from the novel of Aldous Huxley’s : “o brave new world”and an extract from the script of Andrew Niccol’s film Gattaca. They explain the future of the human race against the scientific advances wich are utopian to this day.

( je voudrais illustrer cette notion à travers un premier extrait d’une nouvelle de A.H et un extrait du script de A.N, film Gattaca. Ils expliquent l'avenir de l'espèce humaine face aux avancées scientifiques qui sont utopiques encore à ce jour) .

The two extracts text studied in class focused on an imaginary society : Aldous Huxley wrote "Brave New Wordl". This book imagines a company who uses genetics and cloning for the conditioning and control individuals. The society created by the author is very structured and planned to eliminate as much as possible the chance to organize the most perfect of worlds.

(La société imaginé par l'auteur est extrêmement structurée et planifiée de manière à éliminer autant que possible le hasard afin d'organiser le plus parfait des mondes.)

An incubation center director and conditioning London presents to students the different stages of artificial insemination and latest technological feats.

(Un directeur de centre d'incubation et de conditionnement de Londres présente à des étudiants les différentes étapes du processus de fécondation artificielle et les dernière prouesses technologiques.)

This is the “Bokanosky ‘s process” to clone ninety-six both fertilized eggs of Gammas, Deltas and Epsilons, coupled with a technique that allows rapid growth to get through these genetic manipulations lots of brothers sisters twins.

(C’est procédé Bokanovsky permettant de cloner jusqu'à quatre vingt seize fois les ovules fécondés des Gammas, Deltas et Epsilons, couplé d'une technique de croissance accélérée qui permet ainsi d'obtenir grâce à ces manipulations génétiques des tas de frères de soeurs de jumeaux.)

These genetic guarantee social stability because these babies are all standardized.

In “Gattaca”, Antonio and Maria decide to use science for their second child and science will transform their genetic heritage, in order (dans le but) to have a perfect baby ideal.

They may as well decide on gender (sexe) and Maria answers the doctor they would like Vincent to have a brother to play with. All that remains to select the most compatible candidate. For some people, selecting the sex of their baby is a dream come true !

All these methods and practices to transform the genetic heritage of the human species, in order to make towards a ideal determined.

The cover of "Newsweek" magazine wrote an article about "girl or boy" now you can choose but I can’t help thinking that (je ne peux pas m’empêcher de penser que) the technology answers prayers, it also raises some troubling questions. (elle soulève également des questions troublantes)
