Evolutionary Theorist foresees split in human race

Oliver Curry, an evolutionary theorist at the LSE, opines that homo sapiens might well split into two strands like the Eloi and the Morlocks from H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine in a report for the men’s television channel, Bravo. He does foresee issues with the growing importance on technology such as the loss of social skills and emotions but I’m not so sure. What may arise is different skills and methods of expression. Its an interesting idea but it does smack a little of Luddism. Also, where’s the anachronistic time traveller?
