Universal mind? H,mmm. That may require a Universal brain and a Universal consciousness.
I believe the closet we can come any Universal mind is via gravity ( ) an dark energy )(.
We know that gravity ( ) aka mass-attraction --or Space contraction-expansion/dialation--- has no distance limits for its line--of-relationship between two masses.
Then there is black holes . whose interiors appear to not have any relationship to any of the environment outside of them. But is there a relationship of gravity between black holes.

Goals and purposes are for Human minds.
We create goals to get up in the morning and to keep moving
We want to believe in purpose of our existence so we can continue with creating our goals
Have you noticed?
Most natural beings have purpose.
Vegetations to enrich the earth, the air, and to feed other beings
Small creatures are to feed the bigger creatures
Birds, bees, butterflies and etc to spread the vegetations
They serve their purposes w/o questions why they do it.. and mostly w/o goals.
They do it by simply existing and surviving.
But ... what do humans really do?
As the entire human race... we have done mostly destroying and wasting very effectively.
- by simply existing as human.
Is that our purpose in this universe?
See... we, humans, do not have a clear purpose in this universe.
When most of other creatures have purpose to enrich this earth by simply being... and perhaps by doing so, enrich the universe.
Humans have not enrich this earth nor the universe.... not yet anyway.
So, we still question.. what is our purpose in this universe?
