One cannot choose but wonder. Will he ever return?

Will he ever return? It may be that he swept back into the past, and fell among the blood-drinking, hairysavages of the Age of Unpolished Stone- into the abysses of theCretaceous Sea- or among the grotesque saurians, the huge reptilianbrutes of the Jurassic times.

He may even now--if I may use thephrase--be wandering on some plesiosaurus-haunted Oolitic coralreef, or beside the lonely saline lakes of the Triassic Age. Or didhe go forward, into one of the nearer ages, in which men are stillmen, but with the riddles of our own time answered and its wearisomeproblems solved?

Into the manhood of the race: for I, for my ownpart, cannot think that these latter days of weak experiment,fragmentary theory, and mutual discord are indeed mans culminatingtime!

He, I know--for the question had beendiscussed among us long before the Time Machine was made--thoughtbut cheerlessly of the Advancement of Mankind, and saw in thegrowing pile of civilization only a foolish heaping that mustinevitably fall back upon and destroy its makers in the end.

If thatis so, it remains for us to live as though it were not so. But to methe future is still black and blank--is a vast ignorance, lit at afew casual places by the memory of his story. And I have by me, formy comfort, two strange white flowers--shrivelled now, and brown andflat and brittle--to witness that even when mind and strength hadgone, gratitude and a mutual tenderness still lived on in the heartof man.
