everything is equally evolved

In astronomy, the term evolution refers to the production of elements, stars, galaxies, and the other configuration of inorganic matter.

In biology, evolution refers to the adaptions of organisms to their environment through natural selection.

In humans, or the psychosocial domain, evolution refers to a type of human growth and civilizational development.

Each of these domains – inorganic, organic, psychosocial – operate on different principals. They are related, but each one has trancended the one previous. Inorganic evolution produces living species, giving rise to life; organic evolution produces intentional beings, giving rise to to consciousness.

The third type of evolutionary trancendance isn't here yet, or at least isn't widely distributed.

But if we think about the world and all of the things in it, its not right to say that some things are more evolved than others in the sense of better better or having progressed more; everything is as equally evolved as everything else since it's all been evolving together.
