42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything, in Douglas Adams's five-book trilogy series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. When Arthur Dent in the past discovers that the question itself was, is or will be "What do you get when you multiply 6 by 9?", he says "I always said there was something fundamentally wrong with the universe." However, within the later books, it is established that that was in fact not the actual question, due to Arthur, and most Human beings, being descended from interstellar travelers, and not the original primates of Earth, and is therefore not a part of the program to discern the question. It is found that, if anyone did know both the question and the answer to life, the universe, and everything, the universe as we know it would cease to be, and be replaced with something even more nonsensical.
