The Answer. To THE Question. The Ultimate Question. Of Life. The Universe. And Everything. Is… 42!
They’re not the exact quotes from the froodiest book ever written, but those lines have been over-used anyway.
What leads me to the topic of THE Answer is the fact that everybody in the world seems to be searching for it. Everyone believes that there is actually such a thing as THE Ultimate Question, and it has an Answer. I don’t know if DNA did it intentionally, but I can read into metaphorical meaning behind the entire Ultimate Question joke. The race of hyper-intelligent beings… what humanity and every science writer imagines that we will turn into one day, unless we nuke ourselves out of existence first. Deep Thought, Philosophers, the seven and a half million-year processing time, these are obvious satirical references to how seriously such a question is taken. The final answer, forty-two, is the punch line. It’s almost as if DNA is telling us, “Guys! This entire thing is a joke! There is NO Question, There is NO Answer!”
Unfortunately, 90% of the
fools geniuses who read the Guide took it seriously. We have intelligent people who actually think it to be important enough to spend their time, energy and mindspace in search of this fabled question and its answer.
Intelligent Stupidity. Random Order. A Chaotic Cosmos.
