The Dream Before the Awakening

Gems

H.G. Wells was a fearless, outspoken and prophetic writer; ‘The Time Machine’ is among the many books he authored. His most consistent political ideal was the ‘World State’.

HG Wells London 1939

 

“We look back through countless millions of years and see the great will to live struggling out of the intertidal slime…we watch it draw near and more akin to us, expanding, elaborating itself, pursuing its relentless inconceivable purpose, until at least it reaches us and its being beats through our brains and arteries. It is possible to believe that all that the human mind has ever accomplished is but the dream before the awakening.

“A day will come, one day in the unending succession of days, when beings, beings who are not only latent in our thoughts and hidden in our loins, shall stand upon this Earth as one stands upon a footstool, and shall laugh and reach out amidst the stars.”

H.G. Wells, An Experiment in Autobiography
