Though the TT uses scientific ideas about time and relativity that were circling around the 1890s (Albert Einstein would later draw them together for his groundbreaking 1905 paper on relativity), "The Time Machine" is ultimately not a deep scientific investigation into relativism and time. Stories of time travel were making their way into science fiction and Wells uses time travel in conjunction with bits of scientific theory and a whole lot of fiction.
