I think something akin to "morphogenetic fields" control life and evolution. I think there are pre-formed fields out there, like electric or magnetic fields,that control life and evolution form a top-down perspective. These fields organize the flow of evolution, all the way down to individual species,and the specifics of adaptation. A morphogenetic field attached to a species can read and adapt to an environment. If there is no adaptation possible, the species goes extinct. There is a set range of possible adaptations.
There is a heirarchy of morphogenetic fields. It starts at the top, with the entirety of evolution at the pinnacle. The whole of evolution is contained within. As evolution proceeds, it creates species that are necessary for the next step, through adaptation. One type of organism builds on the next, in a pre-programmed sequence. From bacteria to eukariotes, to multicellular organisms, on down the line through reptiles to mammals. The end goal is an ecosystem that supports large-brained, self aware thinking creatures.
