You have shifted the topic from what I replied to - you were talking about transitional forms, not the beginning of life. Don't Gish Gallop away from the topic at hand, please. Transitional forms, such as homo erectus or Ambulocetus natans or any one of thousands of extinct creatures were also fully formed, fully functional creatures at the time they lived. That's the point I made.
Yes, my question was unclear. "How can natural selection play a roll in the nonrandom developmental process of the original organism which had no population?" My intent was to suggest the original organism was present, fully formed, already here. In which case how would nonrandom developmental process or natural selection provide defense, nutrition, mobility, reproduction and every thing necessary for life without dyeing. Having a single celled organism being subjected to natural selection early on doesn't sound like a simple cell. Perhaps a super super cell.
