Nope, right to the point.

Ah, now see there --- you're *just nearly* to the finish line!  Let me help you over it.

Dōgen might have more clearly asked "Where does purpose reside?"

What is the point of any speech act *other than* to "screw with [someone's] head?"

One might even say that is its "purpose."  Or, more precisely, the speaker's purpose.

To attempt to judge purpose is to place ego between other and experience.

Surely this is obviously a flawed architecture.
