    He had a mind evolved over a million years into the future of mankind and he couldn’t figure out a way to work the machine on his own from inside the chamber…lol. He must have wanted her to turn him back.

    47 years after i first watched this,doctors still do not know how are brain and chemicals really work. what a chilling reality. of course these doctors are just bone, blood and muscle, and they havnt any answers and will die. what a masquerade they play, its crazy, to hold this false perception of them. they have a white uniform and everyone is hypnotized by a false belief. is anyone else awake? i am….thats whats scary.

    @aikicinema Lots of animals have pointed ears, dogs, cats, etc. Shaping the ear more like the cross-section of a cone probably picks up more frequencies. Heh but then again who needs to hear when one can throw people across a room just by giving em a dirty look? : )

    @viralshadow David McCallum is best known for his past roles on American television as Kuryakin in the spy drama “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and his current role as “Ducky” Mallard, the chief ME in the detective show “NCIS”. To what extent these programs are SF is debatable; they both certainly make high use of some fantastic technology. He did do a short lived SF series in the UK called “Sapphire and Steel”.

    Who’s to say that this would be the evolutionary path mankind will take within a span of a million years or so, provided they do not destroy themselves over the course of time.

    That has got be Gould playing Bach’s Prelude No. 5 in D BWV 850a. Nobody plays it like that.
