42 is “The Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything”, FOR FUCKS SAKE.
GET. IT. RIGHT.
What is a question without an answer? Does it have true meaning? If you ask me, the answer gives the question meaning. If we go under that assumption, then the ultimate answer to the ultimate question can only give the question ultimate meaning.
Therefore, if 42 is the Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, as you have posited, then logically 42 is the Ultimate Meaning of Life. AND the Universe, AND everything. So there.
