The way I look at it is this: the goal of most (although definitely not all, but the vast majority) of the market participants is to profit from the difference between the current price and some future price. As such, their collective goal is to discover the future price. While certainly they have no desire to willingly cooperate, their use of error averaging and cancellation and applying any real information to the goal is little different than some ants trying to move a large piece of food towards the colony.
