the mystery of 42

A good friend recently brought to my attention the mystery of the number 42. Some have suggested that it's the answer to the ultimate question (even though we still probably don't know what the "ultimate question" is.)

For example, in mathematics, "given 27 same-size cubes whose nominal values progress from 1 to 27, a 3×3×3 magic cube can be constructed such that every row, column, and corridor, and every diagonal passing through the center, comprises 3 cubes whose sum of values is 42."
