The answer to the question... is the answer.
You look out and see the sky, the birds, the mountains, the river...
Why does water exist?
Water just exist, no reason. Even if all life dies water can still exist.
But beings can give it meaning and say it is here to sustain "US".
Purpose can only exist as being dependent on something else.
Why does this exist? For THAT purpose.
To ask what is the purpose of existence is to go beyond it, but what can be beyond existence except for that which does not exist?
The reason why existence exist is for "THAT" purpose - but once you say "that" - you point to another thing another idea another abstract....
Existence exist, that is its quality.
Purpose is only in the mind of living beings as what sustains it...
