42 is only 42 because you can make any number from 42. The answer to life is EVERTHYING
dombeef (author)  PKTraceur8 years ago
How can you make any number from it?
42 is a two digit number. Now, this may seem confusing, but if you think about it for awhile, youll get it.

4 and 2 makes 42. 4 div. by 2=2. 2div. 2 = 1. Now, you can coninuosley use one, but I disagree with that. To get 3, 2+ (4 div. by 2=2. 2div. 2 = 1) =3. 5= 2 +(2+ (4 div. by 2=2. 2div. 2 = 1))and so on. Youll get it soon. (Notice I repeat using the digits, sorry about that. However, I only start with 4 and 2.

Wow. That's really cool!
Wow how do you know that
Umm... I thought about it for awhile... Just think about it, it works. -PKT

Ok Thanks!
Really though, the meaning to life, the universe, and everything, is 42.
Well, due to the polarity of sub-atomic atoms and the reverse magnetic pole gravity, physics come to describe the law of life, which is: in the force operated nuclear explosion, the only thing left would be the meaning of life. you will find that, in fact, you will find: the creation of God to the world. this is 42

Life is a mathematical game based on a a finite-state automaton, invented by John Conway. It's also a board game (sold by Milton Bradley, if I remember correctly). Now, about the sound of one hand clapping...

Sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll. And there was a movie where they said 42, that is also a good answer......
