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.

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*

The ultimate answer to life in the book "The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy". Unfortunately, no one knows the question. At least, thats what they think. At the end of the final book, "Mostly Harmless", Arthur has been trying to find the planet "Stavromula Beta", which he must go to before he dies. However, it turns out that this place is actually a small club in London. He ends up travelling there, where he is nearly killed by his daughter, the earth is destroyed utterly, and the hitchhikers guide itself is also destroyed from existence. it is pointed out as he pulls into the parking lot for the club that the adress is NUMBER 42. there is still no question here, but there very well may be some kind of meaning.
So now everything is cleared up. sort of. 42.
