进化

jìnhuà - evolution

I had come across 演化, meaning to evolve, but not 进化. Apparently, an early translation of evolution was 天演, which seems to suggest a 'heavenly change', which is quite clearly an incorrect implication. I guess 进化 is literally 'to undergo a change'.

Today I allowed my simulated cells to evolve.
