Have you read "The Time Machine"?

This month’s book for Classic Book Club was “The Time Machine” by HG Wells.  We enjoyed the information in getabstract.  According to that source “There’s no denying that The Time Machine is an extraordinary work of imagination.  More than 100 years after its initial publication in 1895, HG Well’s tale of a nameless scientist who builds a time machine, travels to the year 802,701 AD and there encounters humanity’s descendants – the childlike Eloi and the monstrous Morlocks – continues to engage readers and inspire fellow science fiction authors.  We were very engaged and thoroughly enjoyed the read!

The article continues “Wells handily inverts a core belief of his day – namely, that scientific and technological progress would, inevitably, lead to a better tomorrow.”  He imagines a dark future for society because of the mistreatment of the working classes.  We reflected on the state of our society where the divide between the rich and poor is widening and wondered where Artificial Intelligence might lead us!!!!
