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 removed though.

Compassion is the key towards our evolution, check out
PROVING: 46 & 2, "The Next Major Human Advancement", The Awakening... I'm Almost There,

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.

What reason is there to venerate a cult phenomenon that assumes that it knew everything about something that still has not been proven a full 2 millenia before quantum physics was even invented? To believe that something so old can still be right after all this time is folly, especially considering the subjective matters discussed.
