The meaning of life, the universe, and everything, is inertia.
Anything and everything seeks parity with the status quo: a moving object seeks to continue motion, an unmoving object seeks to remain still, fire
seeks to continue burning, and so forth. Everything that has mass, has inertia (be it in motion or not). Fortunately the natural transfer of energy
into different forms and its effect on inertia causes constant changes in the inertia of everything else in the universe. Even after the immediate
ripple effect of the initial energy has long since become unnoticeable, it has set into effect countless other matter into their own patterns of
energy exchange, which in turn effect others. This is commonly known as the butterfly effect, and commonly understated as a butterfly causing a
hurricane, when in point of fact a butterfly could conceivably bring about the end of the world (though a hurricane is far more probable than an
The reason for this is because of the nature of time, which is only observed through inertia of matter. We know time has passed because the relative
position of the sun in the sky has changed due to the rotation of Earth, or because the hand of a clock has moved, or even because an object moving
continues to move. If there were zero kinetic energy in the universe, time would cease to have any relevance or meaning, because there would be no
change. However, kinetic energy exists because of the transfer of energy that takes place when the inertia of matter has changed. Thus, time may be
seen as, literally, the Universe in motion.
Just as a thrown rock is no one single object, but rather a collection of countless particles, which are collections of atoms, which are collections
of quarks, leptons, electrons, etc, a Universe is, from an outside point of view, one apparent object that is actually a collection of its sum total
of parts. The movement of those parts, and indeed the universe itself, creates a vector.
One might be tempted to ask how the universe can be seen from an outside point of view if it is, in fact, the universe. The answer is gravity. All
matter exhibits a gravitic effect on any other matter that is near enough. As star systems and galaxies maintain their shapes, two possibilities
emerge: either gravity has the ability to reach an incredible distance, or that the collective overlapping of gravitic fields exponentially increases
the area of effect. It is reasonable, therefore, to assume that 1.) a universe has a particular shape and 2.) with enough distance, the gravitic
effect ceases to have influence. If such is the case, the shape of a universe is ultimately determined by motion and mass seeking to maintain its
current parity and vector (as a universe is not likely to stay in one place with all that time passing).
Thus, at any given time, there exists the possibility of multiple universes that have absolutely no effect upon one another until such time as their
vector of motion carries them within one another’s gravitic field, at which point the introduction of new mass and motion will seek the ideal shape
and inertia before traveling onward as one universe. Because of the exponentially amplifying effect of gravity, one may also assume that universes
will merge and a progressively faster rate until there truly is only one, or multiples traveling at vectors that will never intersect each others’
respective gravitic fields. Hence, parity is maintained. Through inertia, a universe will seek to continue the flow of time and matter in the most
energy efficient vector and shape.
Inertia is universal to everything (animal, vegetable, mineral, and otherwise). It affects all states of matter (gas, liquid, solid, plasma) and even
electromagnetic fields (which allegedly have no mass). Through proper calculation of inertia (chaos math) one may reasonably ascertain the future’s
most probable outcomes with ease, as well as the most probable past. For instance, if I throw a rock across the room with all my might, I can
reasonably assume the inertia will carry it towards the wall, and that the greater inertia of the wall will cause it to deflect in another direction.
Were video footage of this frozen at one frame, a fraction of a second after the rock left my hand, the observer may determine from the single frame
that the rock not only came from my hand, but also that I threw it, and that it’s most likely outcome will be a deflected position after contact
with the wall.
If we are then to accept that the meaning of life, the universe, and everything is inertia, and that the answer to the universal question is 42, then
we have a numerical representation as to why change exists despite the desire of all matter to remain at status quo. 42 is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 6, 7,
14, 21, and 42.
There is one
alleged universe. This is at the same time both true and untrue, representing the binary nature of the two
cannot tell if our Universe is still in the process of merging with the other universes, or if it has already happened. All universes are either one,
or will become one, or will remain separate, presenting us with ultimately three
possibilities, creating a composite reality in which to exist.
This is, however, the natural state, and thus, perfect. The smallest perfect composite number is six
, yet mankind has developed the
deadly sins to hide this perfection under a shroud of illusion. Just as six is the sum of the first three divisors, fourteen
the sum of the first three squares, hinting that mathematics does play a rather perfect universal role, though the rules tend to vary a bit. At the
tender age of twenty-one
, a human is expected to assume all duties and privileges of an adult. Ultimately, though, the reason forty-two
is considered to be the answer to the universal question is that it is both the critical angle of light (which is as close to perfect inertia as is
possibly known), and the number of teeth in the mouth of man’s best friend (reminding us that it can still bite us).
