I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm afraid you are out of luck in your quest.  I did have the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything, but I no longer have it and therefore cannot share it with you.  I hurriedly scribbled it down many years ago while I was high as a kite or immediately I descended again with a bump.  Unfortunately I must have thrown out that important scrap of paper during one of my hoarding purges since then.  My hallucination was of slowly turning the pages of a giant book that revealed alternating comical and tragic scenarios until I finally arrived at the page which spelled out the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything very clearly to me.  I discovered that I was somehow able to play David Gilmour's guitar solo from Comfortably Numb flawlessly every time I got high again and picked up my guitar, but sadly I play like shit now because I stopped getting high a long, long time ago and haven't practiced properly for years.  I can tell you honestly that knowing the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything did diddly-squat to help me with relationships, job security and satisfaction, general health, and financial gain, so it wasn't worth learning it.  You would be just as well giving up your quest.

On a similar quest I once turned a stone and looked beneath it. "Peace on Earth" was all it said.

Saint Jude suggests I still pursue the quest.

You mongrel! Made me spit coffee all over my keyboard when I read that!! LoL!
JESUS. By Him and through Him and FOR HIM were all things made. He is the answer.  God made the entire universe because He wanted to and as an expression of the magnificience of His glory. It is a means of communicating that glory to us as humans also. The purpose in life is to love God with all our hearts and enjoy Him forever.  This is not possible by human nature so we need a new nature. Repenting of sins and asking Jesus to save your soul, He will put the Holy Spirit in you and give you a new nature and you will see everything with different eyes and understand the purpose and have a new nature and love God.

Apart from Jesus there is NO purpose or meaning in life. It is all about Him and for Him.  There is no greater treasure. He wants you to get in on His goodness, His richness, His glory, His pleasure, etc.

SOOOooo........  Adam and Eve had no purpose?  Not to mention Noah and his homies.  Pretty sure they existed before Jesus.

>>By Him and through Him and FOR HIM were all things made

God must have been REAL BORED for eons before he knocked up Mary.
