When he lands in the garden beside the White Sphinx, the TT soon meets the Eloi. They look different from the race in the time of the TT.
He finds the Eloi to be happy and healthy but considers their state a “sunset” of humanity because everything harmful seems to have been eliminated erasing the intellectual curiosity, passion, and energy.
The First Murlock Encounter
The TT finds the time machine missing, and he deduces that it has been dragged inside the pedestal of a colossal statue.
The Eloi and the Murlocks
The TT meets Weena when he saves her from drowning in the Thames river.
The TT discovers odd well-like structures, ventilation towers, and industrial noises coming from below the surface of the ground.
He finds the counterbalance of the Eloi, the aggressive Morlocks, ape-like creatures who live and work underground.
