"What can the whole strive for?...If it is truly whole then it already contains everything that has ever happened or can ever happen...That which strives for purpose or meaning must be the part that thinks itself to be incomplete...But the part by definition itself is already a part of the whole...And cannot exist anywhere other than within the whole...So then who is it that has a purpose?"
