electric shock when they are very young. This is done to help them with their future jobs; each type of
child (i.e. Alpha, Gamma, Epsilon,...) will do a different job when they are older.
There are still civilizations within the book that we have today. Outside the "Other Land" and
mentioned in the book is a reservation in New Mexico; which is the setting more like we know.
