The World-Mind has the power of vigorous creativeness as an essential attribute of its nature. It will stop its work of sustaining the universe when it stops being what it is. There is no other purpose behind creation than that of continuing its own existence. To understand this is to understand that the question as to purpose is not at all applicable to the World-Mind but only to an imagined and inferior being, one which could start or discontinue.
