"Terrestrial Limits"

"I understood this myself when I read your novel The Time Machine. All human conceptions are on the scale of our planet. They are based on the pretension that the technical potential, although it will develop, will never exceed ‘terrestrial limit’."

"If we succeed in establishing interplanetary communications, all our philosophies, moral and social views will have to be revised."
