Oh, there’s a purpose. I had a thought about the multi-verse theory… I think it’s in string theory, where it’s suggested that there is a universe, parallel to this one, where all of the other choices were made in my life — The ones DC Comics needs to stay out of because it’s too much for them — and it crossed my mind that if true, there was a universe where it all meant something else entirely.
It would also mean that there would always be one where I was alive — and in fact it would mean there was one where I was God. Which would meant that I knew the purpose. I understood the whole thing, and was laughing at myself over here, for not getting the joke.
