True, but that's only in regards to the limbs themselves and their functions. In that sense we can say that our souls serve the blatantly obvious function of setting us above other animals.

The souls eternity, however, does not need a purpose, as it is a secondary nature rising from the nature of the soul, and not an organism in itself.
