I don't know either. But it does sound rather profound.... especially in colour. 🙂

42: According to Douglas Adams, it is the Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything.*

Douglas Adams: Author of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (always carry a towel and a toothbrush); Restaurant at the End of the Universe; Life, the Universe and Everything; and So Long and Thanks for All The Fish.

*the point being that we have been asking the wrong question.

OK, I'll give it a go mammacinamon. The right answer is... one that will weild greater power over the result(s). One that will empower and help to encourage and motivate you towards staying focused on achieving positive results.

eg... When considering a dietary improvement.

Weak questions - What foods am I going to have to give up?.. How am I going to deal with the deprivation?.. m I going to have to eat like this 'forever'?

Strong questions - What foods that I like will I be able to get more of?.. What new foods can I experiment with?.. Won't it be great when I reach my goal weight?.. Won't it be wonderful to finally master this area of my life once and for all?.. Once I succeed at this, who else can I help?

I suggest the right question to ask is this: What can I do today to best live up to my conscience?

Seekerw

"I suggest the right question to ask is this: What can I do today to best live up to my conscience? "

I cannot agree more.

For me its peace "of mind" TODAY.

Not tomorrow and not yesterday.

To have peace of mind everyday I have to take care of my spiritual side (every day)

Then I have a clean conscience is peace of mind for me.

Love

More about "42" from Wikipedia:

The search for the Ultimate Answer

According to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, researchers from a pan-dimensional, hyper-intelligent race of beings constructed the second greatest computer in all of time and space, Deep Thought, to calculate the Ultimate Answer to the Great Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. After seven and a half million years of pondering the question, Deep Thought provides the answer: "forty-two.0." The reaction:

"Forty-two!" yelled Loonquawl. "Is that all you've got to show for seven and a half million years' work?"
"I checked it very thoroughly, it's 42" said the computer, "and that quite definitely is the answer. I think the problem, to be quite honest with you, is that you've never actually known what the question is."

The Ultimate Answer

Deep Thought informs the researchers that it would design a second and greater computer, incorporating living beings as part of its computational matrix, to tell them what the question is. That computer was called Earth and was so big that it was often mistaken for a planet. The researchers themselves took the apparent form of mice to run the program. The question was lost, five minutes before it was to have been produced, due to the Vogons' demolition of the Earth, supposedly to build a hyperspace bypass. Later in the series, it is revealed that the Vogons had been hired to destroy the Earth by a consortium of philosophers and psychiatrists who feared for the loss of their jobs when the meaning of life became common knowledge.

Lacking a real question, the mice proposed to use "How many roads must a man walk down?" (the first line of Bob Dylan's famous protest song "Blowin' In The Wind") as the question for talk shows, after considering and rejecting various other questions such as, "What's yellow and dangerous?" (a commonplace joke, the answer to which is usually "shark-infested custard").

At the end of Mostly Harmless, which is the last of the series of novels, there is a final reference to the number 42. As Arthur and Ford are dropped off at club Beta (owned by Stavro Müller), Ford shouts at the cabby to stop "just there, number forty-two ... Right here!" The entire Earth (in all dimensions, not just those in which it was demolished by the Vogons), is destroyed immediately after this final reference, which could lead to the Ultimate Question being, "Where does it all end?"

* * * *

I know you all wanted to know that. No, no, don't thank me -- all part of the service :o)

yours truly, kogitative kroiks

kroika,
I remember that movie now...pretty interesting...very different! Thaks for that reminder!

garfield, & seeker..
there is a verse in Proverbs...can't remember which or where..but it says of relationships,"Try to make peace with someone for as much as is POSSIBLE".....some do not want reconciliation, but you know if you tried or not. If they do not let it go.

But my thought is, in regard to conscience...it would/could apply to oneself..."For as much is as POSSIBLE, make peace with yourself'...then the rest is up to God.

OMW: Is this the verse you are looking for?

Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. Prov 13:10.
