Evolution: Infinite or revolutionary?

We study the miracle of evolution from a single cell in which someone breathed life, to more and more complex organisms with powers so advantageous it would almost seem magical if you saw it happening. Once you get past those questions of ‘Who is our Creator’ or ‘Did we ourselves create this world from nothing’?, then you become brave enough to look to the future and wonder if we are still evolving or are we the last on the chain, the most advanced species there can ever be.

And the answer is disappointing if we consider ourselves to be the most evolved. True, they say that the next evolution is revolution in technology. But I feel that’s just evolution of mankind, not man himself. Technology is improving by massive strides, but at the end of the day, man is developing further on something that was man made in the first place.

Wouldn’t it be true evolution, if a couple hundred years later, man begins to evolve through his own spirit and inner sanctity? Imagine the man of the future, answering questions of existence with certainty; answering questions on the history of evolution, the Big Bang and the Universe itself, by diving deep into the memories of this infinite universe that gave us life – this colossal database as yet unexplored. Imagine man to be so powerful as to bend the 5 elements of the earth with his bare hands. Imagine man to be able to communicate without speaking; a language of this universe, spoken and understood by not only all species on this earth, but even those existing beyond the boundaries of our current knowledge.

I am wholly supportive of a technological revolution; after all it only goes to prove man’s power of intellect. But I refuse to accept that this is the only evolution there will ever be.
