Another way to look at it: Until recently, evolution could be characterized
as a happening (something that took place without its participants
self-consciously making decisions about the future course of the process).
From here on, however, evolution will be more like a performance. The human
race is now able to evaluate the effects of its behavior on the future
course of the global ecosystem. This performance will either be done well
(employing sound moral principles and appropriate science/technology) or it
will be done poorly, perhaps even self-destructively.
