On the origin- and purpose of Motion (Life). The origin of motion is Self not wishing to be by itself and the purpose of Self is Companionship otherwise known as Love. As such it would not be incorrect to say that the purpose of Motion is Love, or, to be more precise, that the purpose of Self is Love which is why Self is in motion. To elaborate. Life is nothing else but Self (Bio) celebrating itself as Differentiated (Diverse) for Companionship, for Friendship, for Love.
