according to Buddha

Be gentle first with yourself – if you wish to be gentle with others.

…excite your mind at the hotel blue…

at the blue hotel

  1. 6×9=54… where is 42 till 53? Did I miss some?

  2. …i will change it to “by”…i lifted the idea from the Hitchhiker’s Guide radio scripts, when Arthur has the “cave man” put out Scrabble stones and the sentence “What do you get if you multiply six by nine?” emerges, and then Arthur says “Six by nine? Forty-two? You know, I’ve always felt that there was something fundamentally wrong with the Universe.” — it is at this point that a faint and distant voice says “base thirteen!”.

  3. But, 42 is the answer to everything.

  4. everything…all relevant matters…

    Douglas Adams was asked many times why he chose the number 42. Many theories were proposed, but he rejected them all. According to some websites on November 3, 1993, he stated,

    The answer to this is very simple. It was a joke. It had to be a number, an ordinary, smallish number, and I chose that one. Binary representations, base thirteen, Tibetan monks are all complete nonsense. I sat at my desk, stared into the garden and thought ’42 will do’ I typed it out. End of story.
