Pneumatic--because I still cannot reply to the KC Tribe List

Pneumatic. From the Greek, pneuma, for air and breath and spirit.

Fits topically into our book club discussion in a very broad sense, perhaps more so than other book we have read.

For some reason, I have a mechanical definition in my head also, perhaps from pneumatic drill, where the motion requires air but is slightly static and prefunctory in its motion. This also applies to Brave New World.
