Teleology

Teleology: the explanation of phenomena by the purpose they serve, rather than by postulated causes.

When sentient human awareness is involved, understanding the purpose of a life or an object relative to life, requires a teleological posture not a strictly scientific one, as science itself is dependent upon the energy and the fundamental forces of nature that act upon that energy. 

We can only come to know and comprehend the most profound aspects of life and existence, by discerning what purpose they serve relative to the whole, not in isolation or through individual analysis and classification.
