Douglas Adams was Right. Science Journal Proves 42 Is the Address of the Universe
Slashdot reader Informativity writes: First published in Jan. ’21, a new publication entitled Measurement Quantization affirms the #42 is the address of our universe (Appx. AC), a distinguishing feature of our construct that ultimately answers the question to life, the universe and everything – from a physicist’s point-of -view. Importantly, the International Journal of Geometric Methods in Modern Physics – is a top-tier journal indexed to NASA’s Astronomical Data System (ADS), the after peer review version of arXiv.org.
With just over 500 equations, the paper resolves a comprehensive physical description of dark energy, dark matter, discrete gravity, and unification. Resolving over 30 outstanding problems in modern physics, the paper derives the physical constants from first principles, demonstrates the physical significance of Planck’s units, resolves discrete versions of SR and GR, derives the equivalence principle, presents a parameter free description of early universe events, discovers a new form of length contraction not related to Einstein’s relativity and identifies the discrete state of our universe – 42. Forty-two is what defines our universe from any other version of a universe. It also determines the rate of expansion and the ground state orbital of an atom, thus reducing the number of stable universes as we understand them to just a few.
So, while Douglas Adams may have just been randomly picking numbers when writing Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, perhaps we also live in a universe that likes to humor itself.
