In the novel, the time traveler's name isn't given. Since he's a good scientist more or less , though, he adjusts the theory to fit the facts. Wells tells his Victorian audience to look at its own time, in which the industrial revolution has further divided the classes, and consider the possibility of its turning into the Eloi if capitalism continues to run rampant. If he were a bad scientist, he might stick to his theory about the machines and ignore the new data. Entropy The concept of entropy from the Second Law of Thermodynamics states that systems tend toward disorder and loss of energy over time, an idea many perceive as contradictory to evolution, since evolution implies that systems grow more ordered in their complexity over time.
The first dream was him travelling to the future on 28 April 802701, and being eaten alive by three Morlocks. Man had been content to live in ease and delight upon the labours of his fellow-man, had taken Necessity as his watchword and excuse, and in the fullness of time Necessity had come home to him.

All the Morlocks are controlled by a race of Über-Morlocks, who appear more human than the other two seen in the movie. He also remains in the same space, since the Time Machine only moves along this fourth dimension however, if the Time Machine were truly to stay in the same space, it would end up in some part of space as the earth revolved around the sun--but perhaps Wells assumed the machine would stay bounded by the earth's gravitational pull. An animal perfectly in harmony with its environment is a perfect mechanism.
Science means never having to say you're sorry. In the story, the Time Traveler takes some of the regular League characters into his future world, where he has made a base out of the Morlock sphinx.
