The Almighty Answer to the Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything. It was calculated by the computer Deep Thought for seven million years and when asked to build a better computer to discover the Question to the Life, the Universe, and Everything, it built the Earth. Before the Earth could tell the Question however, it was destroyed by the Vogons to make room for an interstellar highway bypass. For more information, see The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

42 is the number with which God creates the Universe in Kabbalistic tradition.

There are 42 principles of Ma'at, the Ancient Egyptian personification of physical and moral law, order, and truth. Where there are 42 gods and goddesses of Egypt, personifying the principles of Ma'at, who ask questions of the departed, and the deceased's heart is weighed against the feather of Truth.

The answer to the Ultimate question of Life, the Universe and Everything. Unfortunately, according to some theories as well as from a highly credibly source (A man named Prak) that had been mentioned in the Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy, it is physically impossible to simultaneously be aware of the answer and the question of life, and if this ever occured the universe would simply vanish and and something even more inexplicable and bizarre would take it's place.
Man 1: The answer to everything is 42.
Man 2: Is that so? Why that makes perfect sense, I had recently become aware that the question is- *Poof*

42 plays a role in the discovery of QKK as unit of charge and its subsequent use as a symbol of attraction. Mathematician Prince Blake imagined a positive outcome of Otto Warmbier's ordeal. He found a photo of two military girls on a tarmac each holding a bouquet of flowers. Two men look on amused at the unfolding spectacle. Ruler Kim stands center with arms folded behind his back. A fighter jet appears behind with the number 42 on it. He added Otto's image beside the Korean dictator such that Otto appears to have the dictator handcuffed.

Soon Prince invented a game called Squaring 42 whose results pointed towards String Theory's most prized number - 496. Applying it to the first three digits of Pi led to solutions matching farm-to-market roads in Texas. Using Google Maps he found the triangle between the roads resulted in a 777 mile perimeter. Its vertex is centered on Alamo 7 a solar farm with plates of 42 solar panels which each rotate towards the sun. At a historical residence he discovered a chest with exactly 42 decorative white squares in a checkered pattern. Nearby he purchased 2 license plates # 935-QKK.

935 refers to Spiral 935. Googling"QKK meaning" led him to Page 42 of Andrew Gray's book. Gray details the meaning of QKK as a measure of unit charge all other capacitors at potential zero. Further elaboration and specific mention of page 42 is offered in the pages following hinting at unit charge as a consequence of attraction measured by a surface area integral.
Q Where can I find the answer to life, the universe, and everything?
A It's a journey which may eventually lead one to page 42 of Andrew Gray's book, "The Theory and Practice of Absolute Measurements in Electricity and Magnetism."
