“Wells spoke of two types of mind. The majority of people, he said, are retropective in their habit of reasoning interpreting the things of the present solely in relation to the past. The other type of mind, much in the minority, is constructive in habit, interpreting the things of the present in relation to things designed or forseen”
Brian Aldiss, Super State (paraphrasing H G Wells)
