Chapter 5

Lenina and Henry continue on their date and discuss the differences between Epsilons and them. Since Henry is an Alpha, he’s capable of more thinking than Lenina. When Lenina continues to bring up in disgust, that different castes have the same values even if they’re dead, Henry points out that Epsilons are just as important as Alphas and Betas, and that Epsilons aren’t any more miserable being Epsilons than Alphas and Betas are being themselves. The two then go dancing, which is heavily referenced to being extremely sexual, and the music is described in a way where the song itself is a sexual encounter, where it builds up and “moans” and aims for a climax. 

Meanwhile, Bernard attends a “Solidarity Service”, which ends up being a ritualistic orgy (‘Orgy-porgy’) that’s meant to connect the members of the group to the Greater Being, making them one. Bernard tries to lose himself and give himself to the Greater Being, but is too distracted that the woman he has to inevitably sleep with has a unibrow. 

It’s hilarious for me to watch Bernard continue to suffer in the book, because he’s the character that I relate to. Bernard, as an Alpha-Plus who oversees a lot of the conditioning, is well aware of how people behave and why they behave the way they do. It almost makes him roll his eyes when people give into their programming because he knows that’s all it is; programming, rather than biological instinct or genetics. As an Alpha-Plus, he is also capable of critical thinking. This is combined with the fact that he’s small, making him have to work for his status as an Alpha-Plus rather than being lavished with respect the way most Alphas are. He’s used to constantly criticizing the world around him because he doesn’t fit into the mold that he himself has been helping shape. 

I can’t wait for he and Lenina to go to New Mexico, because the contrast of a woman who’s absorbed into the system and a man who understands it far too well is sure to be wonderful.

okay, this scene is never talked about. this is an important scene, look at belle, face-down in the freezing cold snow after getting bucked off of philippe just moments before. she could have ran away, she could have waited for help, or gone looking for it. but NO, belle decides to step up to the plate and thwack a wolf off of philippe’s back. and her face, she’s scared, terrified, even. but no, she tries to calm philippe down even though she realizes that these wolves are really freakin’ scary. they’re growling and baring their teeth and licking their lips. but belle sticks to her guns, and stands by philippe, dodging their efforts to bite her foot off. AND EVEN AFTER THAT, she’s still there. she decides to play offensive. she swings the branch, and misses. BUT THAT DOESN’T STOP HER. SHE SWINGS AGAIN. and despite her efforts, the stick unfortunately gets broken into two(which i could not show due to my creative limits.) but THIS IS AN IMPORTANT SCENE. belle is a badass, and if this doesn’t prove it, i don’t know what will.

I want a movie about a guy who runs for president and wins but then suddenly realizes that he doesn’t want to be president, so he just starts doing ridiculous things all the time trying to get impeached, but it NEVER WORKS because they always miraculously end up…

Alejandro Guijarro - Momentum (2010-)

"The artist travels to the great quantum mechanics institutions of the world and, using a large-format camera, photographs blackboards as he finds them. 

Momentum displays the photographs in life-size. 

Before he walks into a lecture hall Guijarro has no idea what he might find. He begins by recording a blackboard with the minimum of interference. No detail of the lecture hall is included, the blackboard frame is removed and we are left with a surface charged with abstract equations. 

Effectively these are documents. Yet once removed from their institutional beginnings the meaning evolves. The viewer begins to appreciate the equations for their line and form. Color comes into play and the waves created by the blackboard eraser suggest a vast landscape or galactic setting. The formulas appear to illustrate the worlds of Quantum Mechanics. What began as a precise lecture, a description of the physicist’s thought process, is transformed into a canvas open to any number of possibilities.”
