In a world full of sterility and infertility, this would be how humans would reproduce in the future: the artificial womb. The first work of fiction to introduce the concept of the artificial womb was Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. In Brave New World, human beings were being grown in vats and genetically engineered to serve a specific role in society’s caste system. What I am thinking of for my superhuman series will not involve a caste system, but it will include genetic engineering and eugenics to keep the populace at peak human conditioning. Unlike Gattaca and Brave New World, my futuristic society will not have genetic discrimination but political and financial discrimination. The picture above shows the blueprints of a crude artificial womb from 1955. I am thinking of an artificial womb that is sleeker and biomechanical in nature and there would be vast halls full of them in rows like books on a library’s shelves.
