What did Trevor mean when he said: "it's the evolution revolution"?

He's been watching too much Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp (LOL). But seriously, it's because he believed he was about to create a perfect society by killing off the "weak and undesirable" elements with his "evolvo-ray." It's just the kind of thing you expect from a twisted psuedo-visionary like Trevor.

I think he was talking about improving evolution, given that evolution itself is about natural improvement, he is taking credit for improving improvment.

I just watched a program last night on some cable channel about the Scope-Monkey trials. Thats the one that used Clarence Darrow against religion, giving the right to teach evolution in school. The argument being 'natural selection' (the strong survive) theory, which was used by Nietze to foment selective, and which Hitler eventually decided was a great idea. You could say Hitler has an 'evolution revolution' going. I think the idea was to compare Trevor to Nietze and Hitler.

The history of life on Earth is an ongoing revolution,with the new constantly overthrowing the old.But in this case the "old" kills the "new" before the new even exists,thereby showing that Aeon isn't even controlled by evolution.Aeon's ego is so strong that she kills off the rest of the species,and I belive her inner self knew what it was doing the whole time.
