I'll poke my nose in if you don't mind.
The problem is currently universities hand out diplomas not to the most intelligent but to the wealthiest.
Not always but if you have enough money you can buy the diploma.
We spend all this time wondering and thinking what is the point when we should be living, loving and experiencing.
You can never know what the point is.

Everything ultimately is subjective. We can never know anything other than from our our field of view. Maybe that's the "point", maybe it's all just about the gathering of information. To what end, again we can actually never know.
Forget everything you think you know, let your eyes become those of a child, and see everything again for the very first time. If you see it differently, think it differently, and allow your imagination to rework the world as a child sees and thinks it.
Listen to the children, they have not learned to lie. They don't care about your skin or your bank account. They don't care what you do with your naughty bits or what your job is. They see reality.
Almost definitely, and this is also something that can be argued back and forth until the end of time, and probably a complete waste of it.
“To see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to, to draw closer, to see and be amazed and to feel, that is the purpose of life.”
Do those three things and you will be happy. Live life to the fullest, learn whenever it's possible, and love always. What else is there to do?
Is there? To every action there is a reaction, to every cause an effect. Two statements that are grounded in truth but why? What's the point?

That movie quote describes three dimensional sight.
I think it is very misunderstood that we only really see in two dimensions. True three dimensional sight would be being able to see all things from the vantage point of all points in space at once. Our perception of depth, what we consider three dimensional is an illusion that our brain creates with size and horizon lines.
Thus, if we could truly see in a three dimensional way, we could always know what was on the other side of a wall, inside a room. And we could see everything in every frame of reference, from the molecular, atomic, and subatomic, to the galactic and beyond.
I think this is the way God would see, were I to imagine Him.

Woah! And this is a point of perspective, I might have danced around but never thought of in this way. Awesome! Thank you for contributing!!!
I think you're reading into it way too far. Watch the movie and you'll understand what the quote meant. You're overcomplicating it and making something beautiful into something grotesque and pointless.
