    breaking connections between things loses vital information and misleads.  The context of "evolution" ala Darwin is embedded in the local and global evolution of the earth system.  One form of closed loop is new species .....>new enironment ........> new species and so on.  Now bring in a "special" species...Homo sapiens and the profound effects it causes.

    Genetic variations are not "random" in the purest sense.  They occur in a highly constrained context and operate on conditional probabilities.

    Cultural evolution is very  dependent on context.  Technology is a big factor here.  

    An idea is not responsible for who happens to be carrying it at the moment. It stands or falls on its own merits.
