I can look at someones CAT scan (or whatever) and call someones thoughts dumb and blind (just reactions to their environment, imho). I can look at the world from age 0 to now with my Objective Glasses on and see it the same way. I can become conscious and learn to make tools and toys and all sorts of material organizations that comes out of my head, but I'll still look at an Anteater and think of it as a 'hella' creative way for evolution to work.

I'm looking for a word that describes all of this in one. One that refers to technology as just another trail of evolution.
