Humanity is on the cusp of redefining the meaning of life. We need to understand what that means. Advancements in Artificial Intelligence, Genetic Engineering, Brain Implants, Mixed Reality, Uploaded Brains, and many other fields of research are about to blow our minds.

What defines life is a central question in Evolved. Robots and humans have equal rights in the distant future of Evolved. Robots are all but indistinguishable from humans in appearance, are highly creative, dexterous, and even emotional.
