The consciousness of lucid dreaming is a cultural evolution. It's something that we are talking about and learning about, not biological evolution.
What's true for churches is true for other institutions: the older and more organized they get, the less adaptable they become. That's why the most resilient things in our world - biological life, stock markets, the Internet - are loosely organized.
