True everything does have some sort of need to evolve, but if that was really true, coming down to street effectiveness, then wouldn't we all essentially then come up with the exact same art at some point in time? A sort of Budo Darwinism, that would quickly render arts like Tai chi extinct, as well as most Koryu?
Well, is this view so far fetched? I wonder...

You are right, it does follow, but are we not seeing it somewhat already? Or, are we the first generation to have proposed such a thing? I don't think so. I think I've read several folks of the past offer a similar note.
