With personality and morality (transient states, at best) removed from the whole scenario, life, evolution, perception, the whole of creation really, is all just a data management system. We learn, reproduce and our updated DNA makes a new file. Recessive genes are stored in some kind of cache memory, in case they become relevant. Religion is probably an anti virus system that needs updating from time to time. "God" is probably a huge cosmic server bank where all the data from our reformatted hard drives gets collated, and shuffled into new combinations before uploaded back into our waiting C Drives.
