I think this is interesting. The interaction of "nature's universal drive to flourish, survive and reproduce" with "reality" produces "evolution".
Evolution is a random drift of genes sifted through environmental (contextual) filters.
It has no purpose, no 'drive' any more than the inevitable outcome of the interaction of its constituent parts.
Evolution drives adaptation to prevailing circumstances. It also eliminates unadvantageously adapted creatures as circumstances change.
Evolution itself doesn't have a drive or purpose, except that it results in the survival of the "fittest". But as a result of evolution, all living beings have drives to flourish, survive and reproduce. These drives are a part of the fitness of living organisms.
