Hi Mike, you have a good point. I could have left #3 alone, but the word "purpose" is a very big can of worms. It is true that you can have a viewpoint that gives you a subjective feeling of "purpose" but it may not be generalizable past that viewpoint. I got the impression that the way Oakes was putting it was to hold it up for ridicule as self-contradictory.
