Topic: 802701


  
  The Time Machine
In this relatively short novella (little more than 30,000 words) Wells combines two prophecies, the first into the year 802701 in which society has become divided into two distinct groups, the Eloi and the Morlocks, the second is a journey to the end of all life on Earth as we know it.
These two prophecies are related, but they have distinct messages for the late nineteenth century reader, coming at the issues of progress and evolution from two contrasting angles.
Clearly it provides an alternative view of History and Time to that provided by late Victorian devotees to the notion of Progress, or to other Christian and/or humanist notions of Man and his place in the scheme of things.

 SF and the 20th Century, Part 3: H.G. Wells
Traveling to the year 802701, Wells's time traveler finds himself in a shocking world where the human race has split into two distinct species: the Eloi and the Morlocks.
The world in the year 802701 is not a place where many would likely wish to live.
It is a pessimistic view of our future and a warning against social problems such as the rift between the rich and the poor, and the employment of slave labor.

When George, the time traveler, arrives in the year 802,701, he stops his machine too suddenly, and it starts to spin around.
The center console on the time machine should read the Month, Day and Year he stopped in (I think it was May, 802,701), unfortunatly the year indicator, which is the largest display, shows 1900, not 802,701.
When George pulls the lever to stop, the readout is Oct (upper left/greenish) 12 (upper right/yellow) 802701 (lower center/red) So according to what I have he stops correctly in October of 802701, not May of 1900.

 Perspectives - The War of the Worlds   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
As the book's title suggests, a man is thrust into the future through a time traveling machine.
After visiting the future year of 802701 where the time traveler discovers that the human race, much like Victorian society, has evolved into two species: animal-like Morlocks (a representation of the working class) and the feeble Eloi (pampered ruling class), he quickly escapes to the year 30,000,000.
Here he discovers another disturbing image: Earth is a cold and lifeless world (perhaps Wells’ own prophesy of man’s destruction of his own planet).

 Baseball Almanac - Year In Review : 1895 National League
English novelist, journalist, sociologist, and historian H.G. Wells published his first novel, "The Time Machine", a parody of English class division and a satirical warning that human progress was not inevitable.
In the story, the "Time Traveler" landed in the year 802701 to find two types of people: the Eloi, a weak species, who lived above ground, and the Morlocks, a carnivorous group of creatures that lived below.
Much of the realism of the story was achieved by carefully studied technical details and was based on the basic principles regarding time as the fourth dimension.

 The Time Machine - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
They'd already missed some of the most clever parts - a reference to the novel and to the 1960 film, as well as to a (nonexistent) Andrew Lloyd Webber musical adaptation.
The novel began in 1895 in London (the new film starts then, too, but in Manhattan) and eventually skips forward to the year 802701, by which determinism has effected permanent social change.
The British Victorian leisure class has devolved into the compliant Eloi, and the working class of the late 19th century has become the subterranean, cannibalistic, mutant Morlocks.

 Time machine sequels (books)
David J Lake (not "Blake") is a Wells scholar who wrote a sequel based on the premise that the Time Traveller had misunderstood what he had seen in 802701.
The premise here is that, when the Time Traveller comes back to 802701 with the intention of saving Weena, he is met instead by Morlocks who kill him, take over his Time Machine and proceed to invade the sewers of Victorian England !
Nowhere does it say that this was due to the "tipping over" of the Machine upon its arrival in 802701.

They don't fully explain the reason for his jaunt into the future, and only succeed in aimlessly filling a large chunk of the film.
Although Guy Pearce is an excellent actor, he was disappointing, leading you to question why he took the project in the first place - he must have realised he wasn't really right for the part.
In his present, he is nervous and nerdy, yet by the time he has been in 802701 for a few minutes, he appears to be a man of action who has lost all of his nervousness.

He is shocked to discover that he has returned to a world that is completely unlike the one he had left.
With a multitude of realities existing all at once, the time traveler eventually encounters technology advanced enough to allow him to step into whichever timeline he desires and ends up going to the original 802701 of Wells’ book.
The book suggests that time travel creates alternate realities and that the time traveler’s invention and its successors are the reasons behind the existence of a multi-verse — a universe of possible universes.

In many ways, this film is excellent: the Time Traveler's machine looks fantastic, and it's even more spectacular in action.
The new-in-this-version material surrounding the events of 4 years prior and the year 2037 are all quite good, and even some aspects of life in the year 802701 are well done (the Eloi city, for example, is beautiful).
However, I was displeased with many of the changes made to the story it was supposedly based on.
