>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> So is 42 truly the answer to the ultimate question? or just a placeholder? Or is not knowing the question the actual answer?



If you actually understood that, please respond!

It' a joke by Douglas Adams. :)

The question was, as far as I remember it:
“what is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything?”

The meaning of it is more literal (as pertains to literature) than philosophical.
42 IS the answer to the question. Why Adams chose that number, I couldn't say. He was probably talking about the pointlessness and incomprehensibility of the question.

But the answer only comes into context when you know the question:


What do you get if you multiply six by nine?
