Evolution occurs as a response to different stimuli in an environment, in order to better suit itself. We can visually observe some differences in the last 300 years in body type, and height... although, we are coming to an age where medical advancements can fix our problems, our bodies can be perfected to maximum efficiency w/o an environment, but weight lifting and protein shakes. Is there a chance that humans eventually could break the mold and remain the same for an extended period of time? I'm actually asking this question, as I don't actually know... or theorize for that matter...

go ahead and flame me, just a theory anyway
When you think of evolution you need to think not upgrading of a current species but rather an evolution through mutations(talking minds) for example.
All the cybernetics in the world wouldnt get you past 100.
No one needs to live that long the human body was never ment for it.
Extension of any species would always happen immortality set in. Im talking a complete evolution of the entire species.
