I am convinvced that evolution is a cycle or circle, not a spiral.
This means that we wind up pretty much where we started off,
as timeless and spaceless monads. So what's the point?
I think that life needs no "reason" other than self-manifestation
(Meister Eckhart said the same thing years ago). The concept
of "purpose" implies time, and timeless things don't need a
purpose, because they are already perfect.
As to the other point; chaos and order (or cosmos) are
two sides of the same thing--a duality, and so you can't
have one without the other.
