In the novel, a scientist is hurtled into the year of 802,701 where he meets the future race. By building a setting nearly a million years in the future, where utopia transforms into a dystopia, Wells pushes the limits of human imagination with his political and philosophical approach.

“Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no need of change.”
