Define 'possess'. Does possession require consiousness? I assume intentionality does.

I want to begin ramblin' (please ignore if it doesn't click):

I want to claim that, "That would be an assumption that 'evolution' does not have consiousness like we do." But that sounds silly. Yet still, I don't know that. While 'evolution' is a proccess, aren't we a 'process' as well (rendering in this bubble universe under physics).
