So what about the initial singularity? So what about the big bang theory? So what about the steady state theory? All abstractions! Truth is simple (bio) yet purposely complex (diverse). Now to return to the beginning. The origin of self is self not wanting to be by itself. The purpose of self is companionship otherwise known as love. Now self may call itself the initial singularity, the big bang- or the steady state theory but the simple truth is one's purpose is companionship hence the gospel of love.
