This topic interests me, but I find it difficult to go past the second
sentence in your post. The phrase "Something is on a quest" carries a
lot of baggage, in particular that "Something" has intention, purpose
and motivation. Either we have to assume that this intention is produced
by a fundamental "spirit" or "soul" that you have assigned to the
Something, or that the intention is emergent from a complex
consciousness simulation possibly involving Quantum Mechanics..... If
you assume a spirit or soul you are making a quasi religious assumption.
Is this what you want? How do we explain spirit or soul? If you are
assuming a complex consciousness simulation, there is a whole layer that
needs to be explained which no one has yet fully explained yet.
Usually scientists use objective and impersonal criteria such as "energy
minimization" to explain how a reaction is driven in one particular
direction. In chemistry, for example, "Le Chatelier Principle" is used.
