...54? Wasnt it 42? :-)

Exactly. The 2nd greatest computer in the universe determined that the answer to the meaning of life, the universe, and everything is 42. On reflection, they realized the question was a bit vague, and so built the greatest computer in the universe to determine The Ultimate Question. The computer they built - spoiler alert, it's the Earth - eventually produced that Question, namely, "What do you get when you multiply six by nine," thus proving that your sense that everything's been messed up from the beginning is correct.

I'm fond of another, more on-topic Ultimate Answer provided in "Catch-22" by Captain Orr - he paddled to Sweden.
