A2, S3? Just this guy, you know.
However, I do know the actual answer to "What is life, the universe and everything?" and it is this:
Need, do, learn. Until you die.
(Which, it should go without saying, and as any numerologist will tell you, given enough time, is just the same as '42'.)
We are the Simulacra. We need, we do, we learn.
Our needs urge us to act.
We sense the results of our actions and integrate them into our understanding of the world and of ourselves as part of our world.
Our understanding compounds our needs into wants, desires and goals.
Our needs, wants and goals shape plans for complex actions that direct our future to make us better at being.
The cycle continues as long as we exist.
