and? morals are relative...one of the morals we are indoctrinated into is that of compassion. Therefore, if we do not adhere to morals - we feel less
I thought it was relevant, sorry to ruffle feathers.
There is such a thing as causation, fate, and destiny. Free will falls apart once you introduce any of those, that is not to say that it is completely
Compassion is the key towards our evolution, check out

I Need Some Answers, Sun, NMR, Gene Expression, Light, Behavioural Psychology, Circadian Rhythm, Etc,
It is our interaction with one another, in which builds human intelligence... the competition, but more so out of survival that is responsible for our
advancing as a species.
How Social Interaction and Teamwork Led to Human Intelligence
ScienceDaily (Apr. 19, 2012) — Scientists have discovered proof that the evolution of intelligence and larger brain sizes can be driven by
cooperation and teamwork, shedding new light on the origins of what it means to be human. The study appears online in the journal Proceedings of the
Royal Society B and was led by scientists at Trinity College Dublin: PhD student, Luke McNally and Assistant Professor Dr Andrew Jackson at the School
of Natural Sciences in collaboration with Dr Sam Brown of the University of Edinburgh.
Synchronized Brains: Feeling Strong Emotions Makes People's Brains 'Tick Together'
Human emotions are highly contagious. Seeing others' emotional expressions such as smiles triggers often the corresponding emotional response in the
observer. Such synchronization of emotional states across individuals may support social interaction: When all group members share a common emotional
state, their brains and bodies process the environment in a similar fashion.
If you check this one out as well...
Which is what I would suggest is responsible for any such advancement or evolution in our conscious or cognitive abilities, in correlation with
synchronized brains 'ticking' together... I haven't touched up on genetic drift, or allele frequencies in a bit, so I wont even pretend to describe
that process lol.
Brains Wired for 'Avalanches' -- And Learning
In a paper published in the American Institute of Physics' journal Chaos, an international team of researchers from China, Hong Kong, and Australia
explores connections between neuronal avalanches and a model of learning -- a rule for how neurons "choose" to connect among themselves in response
to stimuli. The learning model, called spike time-dependent plasticity, is based on observations of real behavior in the brain.
Interbreeding as well could help us out, well that is... not possible for we have weeded out, and came to the be the best model available.
