Do you have links to the theories you reference?
I generally agree that evolution is a non-purposeful series of adaptive mutations.
What I'm speculating in regard to conscious manipulation (or conscious mutation) is just that - speculation.
It's my own personal theory, if you will.
As for Quantum Entanglements and consciousness, I think it goes a long way towards exploring just how the events we experience may not be as random as we may think and that at some point in the future we may discover that we possess an ability to influence reality in ways we can now only imagine.
