Its first name was Abraxa, perhaps meaning “Holy Name,” “without breeches,” or “waterless.” Utopus, the conqueror of the place and the founder of Utopia itself, civilized the natives of Abraxa and had them, along with his own soldiers, cut up and dig away the fifteen miles of ground that connected.

In Island, Huxley's last book, he presents us with the other side of the coin, the utopia that might have saved the world from the Brave New World's future or at least an alternative to such a life.
