42 = The Meaning of Life
Because if you add all the sides of a dice it equals 21, which is also half of 42. So 2 die go into 42, die being the plural of dice; Therefore the meaning of life equals 42 and 42 equals 2 die or 'to die'.

In addition to be the Ultimate answer to the ultimate question of the meaning of life, the universe and everything, it is also short hand to refer to 'Life, the Universe, and Everything.'
As in "How's your 42?" or "What's new in your 42?"
Or even "Never mind what my 20 is, where in the 42 are you?"

42 is one of the core values to the Valenzetti Equation. The Valenzetti Equation is a mathematical relationship that is used to predict the future, specifically how much time before human extinction. That 42, the ultimate answer to Life, the Universe and Everything, is included in the computation of the smaller question of human existence should not be unexpected.
The core factors of the Valenzetti Equation are 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.
