comment What is the purpose of life on this earth
@cham1 Firstly, it's not that "I" need citations. I try to bear the less-informed reader in mind when writing/reading questions/answers. Secondly, some suggestions: 1) From where do we know that "[HaShem Created] the whole world only for the purpose of [humans] on [Earth]" and that thus "everything else is there for [humankind's] benefit"? 2) From where do we know that "[the woman's] purpose is mainly to help the man obtain his"? 3) From where do we know that "some men [...] help other men obtain [their goal]"?

I find the question a bit rant-like. IMHO, improved formatting and citations could improve it greatly.

You use the word "become". Do you mean "intentionally remain"?

comment What does it mean to pronounce לו as opposed to לא
Incidentally, the edition of Masekhet Soferim linked to in your question cites WaYiqra 21. Either that's a smudge in the HebrewBooks.org scan or a typo on the part of the author citing the verse.

comment What does it mean to pronounce לו as opposed to לא
If you see RaSh"I on WaYiqra 25:30, it is pretty clearly that "we read it" means "we understand it to mean" (as your final note in parentheses suggests). I don't think the pronunciation is being discussed; but, the meaning of the word.
