"A New Theory of Biology," particularly disappoints him. It suggests that the purpose of life might not be "the maintenance of well-being, but some intensification and refining of consciousness, some enlargement of knowledge." Though this might be true, Mond knows that such ideas would destabilize society.

I do not see a reference to the author except that, "His transference to the Marine Biological Station of St. Helena may become necessary.”
