    Read here to know what it is.  Next I ask the question.  Can the 42 minute ride, be translated into 42 minutes being the force of gravity?  I mean, instead of thinking of it as in time, think of it as the a forced measurement, like pressure?  Time force. 

    21 minutes is the force of gravity, and 21 minutes is the force of acceleration. 

    and a zero minute pivital transference.  ???

      yip, I realized that when I looked it up.  Funny coincidence a seemingly random number ends up being the answer to life. 

      I thought it was more interesting that Adams used a base number 13, which astrologically is also the number of the missing constillation (well not missing), it's called the 13 zodiac, where "satanl" resides, but that is a whole other story, and 6, always the number of life.  Though some would argue that it's 7, but whateva.  The answer is 42! 

      I think I fell in love with this number.  smile
