42. The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.
User avatar #32 - mcdubwise (07/18/2012) [-]
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

If anyone were to find out both the ultimate question to life the universe and everything, and the ultimate answer (42) this would happen. I recently finished "life the universe and everything" Great book, Great series. 10/10 would bang read

Every time humanity reaches a certain level of advancement - say, the ability to understand and manipulate the fundamental forces of the universe - an infinityel massive and dense amount of antimatter containing the four basic elements (carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen) from the anti-matter universe comes here and wipes everything out of existence while the universe collapses in on itself. Every time the universe is destroyed, one person is chosen to inherit the memories of their universe and all those previously chosen and lives on into the next universe. The universe will undergo this process 42 times (which is where the special number comes from) before reaching perfect equilibrium, i.e., nirvana.

Or something like that.

Life is Math.
Life = 42

M+A+T+H= 42
13+1+20+8 = 42.

Boom. Checkmate.
User avatar #153 to #152 - saxophan (07/18/2012) [-]
Yeah, man, cause that's the only way you can possibly add things up to get 42 and figure this out
User avatar #154 to #153 - redguardsman (07/18/2012) [-]
Or if we twist the whole thing a perfect ten degrees to the impossible, we get this.

Life = Math(Energy + Action^Meaning) / Sense - Instinct(Profit/Faith) .

That is, of course, if we don't get improbability into the mix.
User avatar #155 to #154 - saxophan (07/18/2012) [-]
Or we could just take it at face value, as a seemingly random number, which plays perfectly into the random, humorous plot of the series.
User avatar #157 to #155 - redguardsman (07/18/2012) [-]
Now we're talking about the Hitchikers' Guide to the Galaxy, that wholly remarkable book which has been hailed across the entirety of the known universe as the standard repository of all knowledge and enlightenment.
User avatar #158 to #157 - saxophan (07/18/2012) [-]
Yep.

Douglas Adams was my hero. An amazing writer, a kind man, an avid humanitarian and environmentalist after writing his book "Last Chance To See." If only he had not gone to the gym that one fateful day, as he had avoided doing for so very long....

If you think about it there must be something bigger than us out there.. I mean think about it: The theory is "There was nothing and there was suddenly a big bang that made everything we know and more."

If there really was nothing, then why did that "nothing" choose to explode when it did? Why didn't it explode a little earlier or a little later than it did? Why was there nothing? Something must have happened! I'm not saying it's the christian God or the muslim God. But something made that "Big Bang" happen.
User avatar #195 to #169 - ilovehitler (07/18/2012) [-]
There are more theories than the Big Bang, ya know. I can't remember which it is, but there's one that is basically 'the universe always existed and will always exist, and any changes in size are merely cycles it goes through'.
User avatar #216 to #169 - keiishiyama (07/18/2012) [-]
"Equivalent exchange" is a lot more than just a concept in Fullmetal Alchemist. It is impossible to get something from nothing, meaning that there could not have been nothing before the Big Bang.
User avatar #238 to #216 - yaarun (07/18/2012) [-]
judaism: everything was mixed together in chaos, god said "let there be light", big flash of light, creation of the world.
science: everything was mixed together in one spot, big flash of light, creation of the world.
User avatar #241 to #238 - keiishiyama (07/18/2012) [-]
"Let there be light" or not, that makes sense. Finally.
User avatar #243 to #169 - iisammehii (07/18/2012) [-]
Well, no, something is always going to have to start something, or it would have never happened at all. For example, the start of the universe was an explosion, expanding gasses. If you say that something MUST have started it then what started the thing that started it?

It continues to go like that, so we can assume that it wouldn't need something to start until we actually find something.

The idea of a "God" or the "Creator" is totally fine but that God necessarily doesn't determine our every move, answer prayers etc, which is the outlook.
#179 to #169 - anon (07/18/2012) [-]
If God created the Big Bang, what created God? Then what created the one that created God?    
   
If the Big Bang just happened, what was there before it? Empty black space? What created that space. Then what created that?   
   
A 'God' didn't just pop out of nowhere, and even if they did, something must of created God, and something must of created the thing that created God and so on x100000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Well, if god exists, we may assume that he is a being that exists outside of time, which would mean that he was always there. I personally believe that he adjusts the laws of nature (the strength of gravity, for example) each time a new universe is born. He then sits back, observing the universe in all it's complexity, and when the universe ends, he makes a new one, slightly different.
User avatar #246 to #188 - iisammehii (07/18/2012) [-]
I'm not saying you're wrong, or trying to trample your beliefs, but what's the point of that? To you, WHY must there be that thing? Why must there be a God who just "creates a universe then sits back", I don't understand.

Where does that necessity come from? The Big Bang Theory (A THEORY mind you) explains the entire thing. Is it simply because you don't think it could have just "happened"? If so, why is that?

The idea of a god that just sits there and plays like a child with playdough is just, frankly, ludicrous and pointless mind you.

i prefer the idea of a god that does not interfere to the idea of a god who plays with us. I don't know how you got the idea that what i said was the idea of "a god that just sits there and plays like a child with playdough". The god i described tweaks the laws of nature to improve the universe, and then does not interfere. He values free will to the point of not interfering when millions die. This i find VERY preferable to a god who interferes, and thereby indirectly is responsible when millions die.

Regardless, any idea of god is, inevitably, pointless, as there really is nothing we can do about it.
User avatar #253 to #252 - iisammehii (07/18/2012) [-]
Indeed, you provide valid points. Yes, as I said, the idea of your god just seems so incredibly pointless.

Also the playdough thing, I was referring to the "creates universe then just sits and watches"

“No one really knows what mattresses are meant to gain from their lives either. They are large, friendly, pocket-sprung creatures that live quiet private lives in the marshes of Sqornshellous Zeta. Many of them get caught, slaughtered, dried out, shipped out and slept on. None of them seems to mind this and all of them are called Zem.”
― Douglas Adams, Life, the Universe, and Everything

The Mattresses had to be the best bit of the entire series or maybe the S.E.P that was very clever, i remember going and getting the books the day they came out...
User avatar #11 to #9 - slumberdonkey (07/17/2012) [-]
If you liked those books i definitely recommend reading his other stuff. It's just as weird. I've read "The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul" it's ******* hysterical.
