Homo sapiens are chordate, invertebrate, tetrapodal, mammal, primates - we can't stop being any of those things. To escape our ancestry would mean to be not one of those things. Which is impossible.

Okay, I see what you mean. But I think to carry on this discussion would be to derail this thread, but I'll just point out that I don't see why that would be impossible. It hasn't happened for good reasons (it would be extremely unlikely), but I don't see why it couldn't at least in principle.
