After Henry and Lenina leave the cabaret, Huxley comments that they remain in “happy ignorance of the night” and describes the stars as “depressing.” What social commentary does he make by using with his description of nature?

This separates people from the natural world: something that the World State promotes. People in the World State are meant to exist in an artificial vacuum of consumption and superficiality. To be enchanted by nature would defeat the purpose of the state. In nature, people can find purpose and humanity. The World State does not like this.
