Evolution is a continuing process of purposeful change. Human Evolution is not limited to, or even primarily focused on, changes in the physical body. The "body"—any body—is a vehicle for consciousness. It is as a "sphere of consciousness" (an alternative term, perhaps, for "self" or "soul") using its several vehicles as a means to gain experience within a manifest environment that purposeful human evolution can be initiated at the personal level.

You are more than a physical body with a marvelous physical brain! Some people believe that's all there is—just a physical body—while many more believe, at the least, in something they call a "soul."
