I know the meaning of life. I know why we are here. I know what it’s all about. That’s been the point of the whole shebang. I’m not going to unveil it now. That would be a waste. It’s too soon. This is just the teaser. The trailer to say, that there is more coming. More to say, more to do. “More to me than there is to me” as Leo Bloom would say. A lot of people will answer 42, because they heard it once in that one movie… WELL! If you actually read the books… you’d know that 42 is the ultimate answer. The ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything. But the people who asked for the answer to the ultimate question did not understand the ultimate question in itself. Later on in the story, a new machine was built to produce the ultimate question, so that we could understand the ultimate answer. This machine malfunctioned, and produced the question “What is Six by Nine?” well, as we all know six multiplied by nine is 54, not 42…. So the people that built these machines decided to come up with their own question. That question was ‘How many roads must a man walk down?’. This makes more sense with the answer 42, and is something that will make you think. Well, I have news. The meaning of life, why we are all here, it is not 42. Though that was a good, humorous, jaunt into philosophy; Douglas Adams was not quite on point. I will say, however, that the meaning of life is very simple. It is something, nay, three things… that all living things have in common. Everything that lives will strive for these same three goals in their lives. Even plants. It is why we are here. It makes scientific sense, and it is not the prophetic, ideological, or philosophical answer you were looking for. But it is true….
