* Alternatively -- if you want to keep Thea Von Harbou's message intact -- the actions of Freder and Maria created an alternate timeline where the BadFuture in the Time Machine was avoided.

[[WMG: The film is an {{Interquel}} to ''Literature/TheTimeMachine'']]
The film takes place in 2026, 131 years after the Victorian era present of the novel (1895) and 800,675 years before the time to which the Time Traveller travels (802,701). The wealthy elites live aboveground and while away much of their time in idleness and childish play, while the workers toil endlessly underground. These are the exactly the general social trends that the Time Traveller theorized led to the former becoming the Eloi and the latter becoming the Morlocks. Really, the only thing you have to do to make the two fit seamlessly is to assume that the happy ending to ''Metropolis'' with "The Heart" as the mediator to the Head and the Hands doesn't end up panning out in the long run.

** The Heart Machine is ''not'' the Moloch Machine, though that is not made clear until the rebellion at the end. However, the two are probably connected in some way since the Heart Machine is implied to be central to all of the city's machinery.

**This theory is somewhat undermined by the longer restored cut, which adds some complexity to the ending, and also showcases Maria repeatedly risking her life to save others, especially children, even late in the movie.
