is how to discover, against his will, what another human being is thinking,

of voice, and testing the truth-producing effects of drugs, shock therapy,
hypnosis, and physical torture; or he is chemist, physicist, or biologist
concerned only with such branches of his special subject as are relevant to
the taking of life. In the vast laboratories of the Ministry of Peace, and
in the experimental stations hidden in the Brazilian forests, or in the
Australian desert, or on lost islands of the Antarctic, the teams of
experts are indefatigably at work. Some are concerned simply with planning
the logistics of future wars; others devise larger and larger rocket bombs,
