But life is both the hunger and the eating. So life has no purpose, it's the forum in which purpose exists.
That's very close to my notion, except that Hegel defines the Desire for Recognition are our meta-purpose. In Politics this is the struggle at first for dominance, one tribe by another. But it evolves into the French Revolution, etc.
In the philosopher, the Desire for Recognition is the driving force that leads him to self-consciousness, which can be attained, as far as his essentially human element is concerned. (his incidental element is a mess for empirical psychology, not an ontology of being. )

Folklore about Einstein is that he was filled with wonder at the fact that structure is discernable...
I think your'e right about that, but he also said this, which is a key to my philosophy....
, on the other hand, stated that "as far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality."

man is not pure negativity , I'm not anyway
No, man is the collision of pure negativity and spatial being. But this negativity concept is hard to grasp. It must be inferred. What is the Being of beings? What is raw existence made of?

time is used to understand the Universe by us Humans but it has no influence on things and their behaviour
i think you are thinking of physics time. Humans exist bodily in continuous space, but mentally as a system of concepts. This system of concepts is made of memories of the past (spatial being that is no longer present) and hopes or dreams for the future. Man lives very much in the future, in his imagination. And he shapes the spatial present according to his hopes and dreams. So, in this sense, man is time, and also an evolving being. Because all of us are always learning. We are improving our system of concepts. But where do they exist, before we write them down? Where is the mind?
Human time is made of desire and fear in relation to a system of concepts. But humans have also invented physics time, which is not what Hegel is focusing on. Hegel is focusing on the system of concepts that invented math and physics in the first place.
