    Personally, I think the purpose was to show two things: One, "More powerful than you can ever imagine" - that was the promise of ANH that we never fulfilled until now. Also, considering how TLJ ends, shows that Luke will be too. And, two: to show that the Jedi who reach Force Ghost phase do not stop learning. We saw it in books, Qui-Gon who wasn't able to appear to Yoda, but was present as only the voice in RotS, appears as Force Ghost to Obi-Wan in the story Master and Apprentice, during the events of ANH. It took him years, but he did it. Very small number of people in the audience read SW books, so demonstration in the movie does the job.

    To me, it was a literal manifestation of what Yoda said to Luke about failure being a lesson and the pupils growing beyond the master. By burning the tree he was telling Luke, they need to move on from the past failings of Jedi...

    Foreshadowing the burning of the Jedi tree with chiaroscuro and the gold star drawing?

    “Maybe”

    @NinjaRen just shared this link with me, unfortunately he's afk, so I get to post this one-



    In TFA after the fight, they got separates by the Force and Rey entered the Falcon. In TLJ they got separated by the force again, but this time Rey is already on the Falcon. Perhaps in EPIX they will unite on the falcon?

    Or maybe he’ll be the one in the Falcon and her outside seeing him depart, like a farewell... for now.

    Their last exchange:

    Rey: I don’t hate you.
    Ben: I know.

    :D
