Technologies impact on society
I really enjoy the idea of time travel, however I don’t believe it will ever be possible it is a great thing to write a book about. I like how the travelers’ guests actually question what he is saying he is doing. A lot of book I’ve read the characters don’t question what is happening around them. I have never thought about language being unnecessary. Also mentioned is the bending of human intelligence to make life easier. Today we are currently doing all things to make life easier you see it in our cell phones, computers and at work. We use machines to do things that in the past people did. Some say that one day the world will be run by robots and machines it is a crazy idea but some could say that it already is, we rely on the internet and technology for everyday life. People would go crazy if they lost all technology. Even in prisons people have access to technology. The outcome of all the technology advances could become a weakness in society. “Under the new conditions of perfect comfort and security that restless energy, that with us is strength, would become weakness” (Wells, 33) I do not think that the advances in technology could take away feelings and make people heartless. Humans are biologically wired to want a mate and raise children. The Morlocks and the Elois in my opinion resembles the working class and the upper class. The lower class take care of the dirty work.
