Evolution Beyond Homo Sapiens?

No. Any such evolution would by definition be a regression to animality rather than a progression, entirely regardless of any specific detail.

What on earth do you mean by "evolution" in this context?

The emergence of any new species descended from homo sapiens.

What on earth does evolution have to do with "regression" or "progression" anyway?

Well, indeed. We're back to "science is not philosophy, or vice versa". You might be able to see it. I might be able to see it. But an awful lot of people cannot (or, rather, will not) see it.

So... You say we are perfect? Are you sure that we are the peak of the piramid and our species can not evolve any further?

I fear that you might have answered your own question.
