a wheel is a perfect tool for a lot of tasks, it doesn't make sense to
evolve it, you might want to use new material, a new static, some
special individual design to build wheels, but the basic design will
always remain based on a circle. For some special tasks, you will drop
the wheel as soon, as you have got a better idea, such as a steel tread
or legs, but then you will stay with this new ideas for those special
tasks, you wouldn't replace the wheels of a bicycle with steel tread or
legs, unless you should be very stupid. IOW there is another way around,
you could stay with a winning team, instead of changing the team and to
sink. This is not meant as a comment related to the CSD topic, it's just
a comment related to the assumption that there should be no other way,
than to evolve or to die. Some artificial, technical things reached kind
of perfection, the third way is to stay with those things as they are
and to find another field for evolvement, unless you really have a very
clever idea for a really, really ingenious improvement.
