In 1909 E. M. Forrester had a vision of the future. He wrote a short story titled "The Machine Stops". In 1909, Forrester knew that the Internet would exist. He knew that it would be used to avoid seeing people in person. He knew that it would be used to avoid even the slightest amount of exertion. He also knew that most of what people said would be completely meaningless dribble. The detailed picture of modern day life painted by an artist over 100 years ago will leave you wondering if he really did have some mystical insight into the future. This, in turn, will leave you wondering if his thesis was correct: does the machine stop?
