Evolution is a continuous process. It happens over thousands of years, and will always happen. Whether it is "foreward" or "backward" evolution, it will never stop. A species will never be able to become "as evolved as it will ever get." The term "more evolved" does not exist in biology.

Size of brains doesn't have to mean more intelligent, there can also be other ways of increasing intelligence.... :) like i said, size doesnt ALWAYS matter

Maybe future brains will have more myelin sheaths.
Sorta going according to the social evolution theory a couple of posts ago---
Humans have the power of technology...cybernetic brains would vastly improve our intellect. And as long as we have the records, this would be a trait passable down the generations.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

My reference to us showing no signs of further biological evolution in the last 1 to 2 hundred thousand years does not mean we are in a evolutionary dead end! Exactly the opposite is the case! It means that we have found a much better way to evolve and have not needed to evolve any further biologically. Social evolution is a form of evolution and it is extremely successful. That we have now populated the whole world without any further biological evolution attests to the incredible success of social evolution. Yet, the academic profession avoids the subject like the plague because to dwell on it is to find an evolutionary process that would make a sham of our secular and religious ideals.
