Not if the attractors extent beyond the scope of humanity. If consciousness can exist in other beings then they too must be participating in the "evolution" of the Universe. It would also not be democratic if there is an eschaton, or if other forms of consciousness are pulling us out of an attractor to another. This would mean that history is not fully random; it proceeds with chaos --giving it certain degrees of freedom- but unfolds according to the pressure of outside forces.

If the "Universe organism" --this thing monotheist religions call God- is evolving, then we are part of it's evolution and evolving with it.

Interesting. Emotions do seem to function as attractors. Can we evolve out of the victim mentality? Can we suppose that one day we'll move further away from our monkey brain; that we're still stuck to it because not enough time has passed since "something happened to our consciousness"?
