The Time Traveler started his story at the time when he finished his time machine. “I suppose a suicide who holds a pistol to his skull feels much the same wonder at what will come next as I felt then.” (Wells 15). He is very nervous since he is the test subject of his creation, here as observed that human experimentation was accepted in the era of H.G. Wells, in the 1800s, and unlike now, these experiments are inhumane. Upon arrival, he saw a white Sphinx statue, if portrayed in real life the meaning of Sphinx is a symbol of mystery and benevolence. Such a symbol may foreshadow trial and hardship in his adventure into the world he entered. Knowing that he is alone in his adventure, he panics and fears what might happen to him. “I felt naked in a strange world. I felt as if perhaps a bird may feel in the clear air, knowing the hawk wings above and will swoop. My fear grew to frenzy. I took a breathing space, set my teeth, and again grappled fiercely, wrist and knee, with the machine.” (Wells 18). It is only a natural response as a human to be afraid of the unknown, here it can be depicted that the Time Traveler fights his fear with his curiosity in the unknown world as a person who wants to change his life and try to get out of his comfort zone.

The Time Traveler is surrounded by these creatures with unique characteristics; four feet tall, curly hair, large eyes, and small red lips. It reminded him of small children. With difficulty communicating with them and a childlike behavior he said, “Were these creatures fools? You may hardly understand how it took me. You see I had always anticipated that the people of the year Eight Hundred and Two Thousand odd would be incredibly in front of us in knowledge, art, everything.” (Wells 20). Here the passage can be depicted as an expectation of a man to the future for it to pursue higher knowledge. The Time Traveler questioned that such humanity evolves in this state and suddenly it made him realize that the society he’s in now is a communist as such no conflict can be seen, the humanity has attained its social triumphs. “I judged there had been no danger of war or solitary violence, no danger from wild beasts, no wasting disease to require strength of constitution, no need of toil. For such a life, what we should call the weak are as well-equipped as the strong, are indeed no longer weak.” (Wells 25).

The communist view of the Time Traveler can be depicted as the concept of communism in the real world no conflict between the social classes is accomplished, but this is just in a utopian world. Upon realizing that the Time Traveler cannot return home because his time machine disappeared, he feels hopeless. “At once, like a lash across the face, came the possibility of losing my age, of being left helpless in this strange new world.” (Wells 27). This can be depicted as someone had lost something important in their life, as in the case of the Time Traveler his home and sense of belongness has been taken away from him. With great despair drawn on him, there he finds hope to cope with the situation he is faced with. “Suppose the worst? Suppose the machine altogether lost—perhaps destroyed? It behooves me to be calm and patient, to learn the way of the people, to get a clear idea of the method of my loss, and the means of getting materials and tools; so that in the end, perhaps, I may make another.” (Wells 29). After learning about the civilization of the future, he discovered that, there, in fact, two species that humanity has evolved to, the one who lives on the surface are called the ‘Eloi’ while the one who lives underground are called ‘Morlocks’. He theorized that these two species have evolved from the social class struggle in which in the time of H.G. Wells there were conflicts between the capitalist and the laborers.
