A lot of science fiction and non-fiction discussions concern the next evolution of mankind. The Nazis and other villainous organisations tried to force it forward through misguided selective breeding programs or gene manipulation or whatever.

For example: I just recently watched a movie called I Am Mother (2019) - IMDb[^] wherein *** Warning! Spoilers ahead *** a robot AI decides to kill off all humanity to breed and train a better human race from selected embryos.

All these incidences seem to only ever allow for one type of human as the "future of mankind" except one I have come across. In H.G. Wells' excellent book The Time Machine - Wikipedia[^] and for those illiterate enough to need it, the movies: The Time Machine (1960) - IMDb[^] and The Time Machine (2002) - IMDb[^], the latter having flashier effects but less close to the book, IMHO. In these *** Warning! Spoilers ahead *** there are two "future human" types, the "Morlocks" and the "Eloi".

My question is, given the appropriate circumstances, which do you think you would most likely become, or what other human "evolutions" do you think are actually possible?

Personally, I, or my descendents, would expect to and up as a Morlock as I would hopefully be in the underground bunker come the nuclear apocalypse.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
