The Purpose of Creation

Succinctly explainable only through metaphor:

Just as humans create tools, which, on their own, have no purpose or utility to themselves, nor any possibility of recognition of the mind of the human creator, these things existing only in the thoughts of the humans that created them;

So too are we humans vessels, or tools, created for purposes beyond our comprehension, only waiting to be "picked up" and made purposeful by our creators.
