Honest question: what are you hoping to find? Numbers are representative. A ten base number system is just as valid as a three base number system. 42 loses all meaning. It's only what you assign to it.

It should be obvious that numbers in Pythagoreanism also express meaning. Perhaps more dimensional than language, in that, one can derive links to other meanings (aka numbers), using numerology.
Yes I've coded.
Cambridge astronomers have found that 42 is the value of an essential scientific constant - one which determines the age of the universe.
"We have taken two measurements for the constant, and the average of them is, well, it's 42,"
But one tool comes up with a significantly different result. By analysing the cosmic microwave background – the echo of light still rippling through space 13.8 billion years ago – the Planck Mission has come up with a figure closer to 67.8 km/s/Mpc (about 42 miles/s/Mpc).
24x42 = 1008
