It is hypothesized that there is a formative directional tendency in the universe, which can be traced and observed in stellar space, in crystals, in microorganisms, in organic life, in human beings. This is an evolutionary tendency toward greater order, greater interrelatedness, greater complexity. In humankind it extends from a single cell origin to complex organic functioning, to an awareness and sensing below the level of consciousness, to a conscious awareness of the organism and the external world, to a transcendent awareness of the unity of the cosmic system including people. It seems to me just possible that this hypothesis could be a base upon which we could begin to build a theory for humanistic psychology : Carl Rogers (1978) https://www.centerfortheperson.org/papers/The-Formative-Tendency.php
