Our Future: Morlocks and Eloi?
Around the turn of the last century, H. G. Wells wrote a novel called The Time Machine, wherein a time traveller from Victorian England--arguably the highest level of civilization in some respects ever attained by Aryan man--transported himself to the far future.
There life was a garden of Eden inhabited by carefree, throughtless, beautiful people called Eloi--but underground lurked the evil troglodyte Morlocks, who ran all the machines that kept the upper world beautiful and sanitized. The price the Morlocks exacted from the Eloi for their technocratic services was simple; periodically they would climb to the surface and carry off Eloi to be raped and eaten.
According to an article published in the British Daily Mail, "The human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures, according to a top scientist."
Mmmm...I'm tempted to make a comment that's what we have now, but although our underclass are certainly dim-witted, ugly, and goblin-like, our ruling elite can hardly be called attractive and intelligent.
"100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed. The alarming prediction comes from evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry from the London School of Economics, who says that the human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000. The report claims that after they reach their peak around the year 3000 humans will begin to regress."
Mmmm, seems to me he's a bit optimistic. "Humans" and I use the term loosely, are regressing all around us even as we speak.
"'These humans will be between 6ft and 7ft tall and they will live up to 120 years. Physical features will be driven by indicators of health, youth and fertility that men and women have evolved to look for in potential mates,' says the report, which suggests that advances in cosmetic surgery and other body modifying techniques will effectively homogenise our appearance. Men will have symmetrical facial features, deeper voices and bigger penises, according to Curry in a report commissioned for men's satellite TV channel Bravo. Women will all have glossy hair, smooth hairless skin, large eyes and pert breasts, according to Curry."
Sounds like he's describing the artificial and non-existent world we already see every night on our television screens.
"Racial differences will be a thing of the past as interbreeding produces a single coffee-coloured skin tone."
That I very much doubt. I think anyone who has any kind of choice in the future through technology or eugenics will choose to be white. Especially the women. Who's going to choose to be a bubble-lipped mulatto if they could be a Nordic woman?
Uh-oh, here come the Morlocks. "The future for our descendants isn't all long life, perfect bodies and chiselled features, however. While humans will reach their peak in 1000 years' time, 10,000 years later our reliance on technology will have begun to dramatically change our appearance. Medicine will weaken our immune system and we will begin to appear more child-like." (Obviously this writer hasn't watched The Simpsons or Family Guy recently.) Dr Curry said: "The report suggests that the future of man will be a story of the good, the bad and the ugly."
Future, nothing. What Dr. Curry is describing is the situation we have today, and if we don't do something about it, there is no future.
