Human evolution — Where from here?

Thanks to language, mankind is rapidly developing into a eusocial animal, within a single world-wide structure. Biological evolution based on random genetic events is no longer a part of the future of the species, and cultural evolution has taken its place. Ease of communication between minds means that distinction between individuals is becoming irrelevant. Future progress in the single world-wide community to which mankind is rapidly developing will rather be a self-guided process — evolution by self-design.
