Evolution appears fulfilled

I can't help it. Yet another half formed question.
To me it seems like evolution has reached its goal. Not that change has
ceased or nothing is adapting but more like a general plan has reached
fulfillment. It's not like I can't imagine anything more it is something
else. Like a great painting you can imagine a hundred additions but you
know it is done. Putting the creation story aside, does observation of the
past and the present look like that to anyone else or am I just looking at
this through my prejudice. I feel as if one could observe any of the other
epochs they would "feel" unfinished but this epoch of man seems to be more
symetrical or something. Is this my own trip?
