The Social Predestination Room is one step in the process of human birth in Brave New World. The first step is the Fertilizing Room, then comes the Bottling Room. Next is the Social Predestination Room. This room contains "eighty-eight cubic metres of card index...containing all the relevant information," meaning the genetic coding that will determine the social class in which the new person will be born.
