We are actually in the biological family hominid along with gorillas and chimps.
Uber doesnt mean ultimate or final, but super... or advanced. There will be ubermonkeys in the future, whether its a million years or 50. In the near future, scientists will manipulate the human genome to their own specifications. In the beginning the laws will only allow hereditary illnesses and diseases to be corrected, however the idea of a superhuman will be too great to be ignored. Some scientists already have the idea of merging the dominate traits of many species into one, creating a very unusual, but more advanced, species. Another scientist has given sight to the creation of unbelievably strong and subservient men to be used as soldiers. Suppose the laws continue to ban stem cell research or suppose it is impossible. Humans will continue to evolve, or adapt, regardless of survival as the purpose. Our knowledge will never cease to grow.
Every new technology and theory invented will give way to more evolved thinking. This expansion of knowledge will make possible endless breakthroughs of our insights of the phsical and mental universe in which we are remedial in understanding.
If this isnt enough, given time, the more dominate traits of all races will become one. Remember the term survival of the fittest? In the future our genome will be screened of weak and undeseriable herditary traits. All of those that suffer through the greatest diseases and indispositions will defeat these illnesses thanks to our bodies adapting defenses. Again, with time, those that become immune to such aflictions will be bred with other dominate bodies of the same species, thus signifing evolution.
