Objectives: To propose a single unified theory of evolution of life and of species based on conscious evolutionary urge that works at all levels, from the individual to the cosmic. Methods: We review and analyze of all major theories of evolution of life and of species to figure out unanswered questions and to bring forth the possible role of an inherent evolutionary urge in every being and in every species. The evolutionary urge is made operationally active by the proposed fundamental and key role of the cosmic mind. Findings: The cosmic mind as the repository of all mental events of all beings, having as subsets the collective minds of all species, provides an adequate structure to explain evolution of life as well as of species as an effect of the corresponding evolutionary urges inherently present. It stores, regulates and activates the evolutionary urges in beings and species and thus is the source and substratum of all evolution. The morphogenetic field is proposed to play the role of an intermediary between the cosmic mind and the physical world. It is through this morphogenetic field that the urges in individual mind or collective mind or cosmic mind are projected unto the physical world. Many evolutionary isms and paradigms stand unified in the cosmic mind. Application/Improvements: The urge-based approach to evolution can explain adaptation and mutation and also points out possible directions of evolution beyond the Homo sapiens.
