You Mean the Answer Really Is 42?

Now here’s a story that I’ll bet Knippenberg missed: A speculative article about prime numbers and physics that suggests the key number in a certain mathematical sequence is 42, the very number said to be the answer to everything in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. (Don’t worry: I don’t understand it either.)

Of course "42" is the ultimate answer to the ultimate question about life the universe and everything. However, the unltimate question is: "What do you get when you multiply six by nine?"


But wasn’t it Jimi Hendrix who asked "If 6 were 9?"

6 times 9 = 42 (base 13)

God has 13 fingers.

So is the fourth moment 60?

But is it "25 or 6 to 4"?

Peter: That only works in Chicago.
