Is the meaning of life really 42?

    I’m sorry to disappoint you all but there is no meaning to our lives. There is no ultimate goal. We are here as a product of circumstance and coincidence. We weren’t placed here for a higher purpose or created for a deities pleasure. What reason would there be for that to happen? Why
