What is the purpose of a greater complexity of the species?

While accepting that the purpose of biological evolution is the survival of genes and that the spreading of these in many different species represents a strategy to achieve that end, we may ask why this trend has led to forms of life not only different but increasingly complex. The answer can be found using again the metaphor of the teams championship: when teams are balanced but always in competition, they will seek to develop new strategies to beat the competition. Sooner or later a team will develop a new technique of play, more choral, faster, more imaginative, however often more complex; if this technique will be successful, soon will spread into other teams to re-establish the balance; it will be then necessary to develop further and more complex techniques that will encourage competitors to do likewise and so forth. The teams that fail to recover the disadvantage are destined to disappear or to survive in another league to play with teams having their same level but in an interdependent system between all levels.  It is therefore competition that moves the mechanism of evolution from bacteria to humans, leading to the synergy between all living species.
