The phrase “Professor of Life, the Universe, and Everything” is a reference to the character of Professor Archimedes Q. Porter in the popular novel “The Secret of the Lost Kingdom” by British author T.A. Barron. In the book, Professor Porter is a scholar who specializes in the study of the mysteries of life, the universe, and everything.
However, the phrase is also a reference to a more famous literary work, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams. In the book, the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything is famously calculated to be 42, a joke that has become widely known and referenced in popular culture. In the book, the character of Deep Thought is a supercomputer that is asked to find the answer to the ultimate question, and its answer of 42 is meant to be a humorous comment on the idea of finding the meaning of life.
