Maybe we already have the ability to determine our own purpose inside us (i.e. our brain) and, rather than a system to work out the higher levels, we need a system to filter out all the modern day stuff which is interfering with our natural way to think. I mean, I doubt many people had a problem with what they're life vision was back when we lived in caves, not that I was around then (although I am starting to get on....) Modern life has made us busy with the minutiae of details that we have to think about when we do just about any activity. If I'm hungry the next action is not "Go kill a bison" it's plan the shopping, check cupboard stocks, use by dates on items, remember wallet, get car seat and support materials if taking baby (which can be a project in itself), check car fuel, remember shopping bags because there's a whole environmental thing going on at the moment here with plastic bags, which credit card to use for cashback, sometimes you get money back for spending over a certain amount but you have to print a coupon off in advance but it takes time but it's a good deal..... you get the idea.

Dare I even say that any system that purports to work out your higher levels is itself a distraction from the perfection of the natural planning of the human brain
