"Not only does the body of an organism march to the orders of its genes, but so do the artifacts the organism builds or uses. (In this sense, the egg uses both a chicken and a nest to make another egg, and so the nest, too, is an evolutionary extension of the egg.) Human evolution is now inextricably bound up with technological evolution. Humankind is co-evolving with its artifacts, and the genes that can't cope with that new reality will not survive into future millennia."
