Hi Hal,
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.
