Teleology is the idea that nature has a purpose. See Wikipedia's article teleology for background.
The CTMU espouses teleological pantheism. The CTMU says that the universe is externally unconstrained and so reality is capable of taking on any form and evolving in any way. The particular evolutionary path it chooses to take and the values that that choice is based on is known as Teleology.
