The origin of self is self not wanting to be by itself. The purpose of self is companionship. Love so love. What it means is that the origin of the universe, the world and life is self* and that life, the world and the universe is self celebrating itself as self-diverse, as self-differentiated, for companionship, friendship, love. (* स्व, शिव, śiva, shva, svā, sva, swá, swé, sé, שְׁוָא, et al).
