The Meaning of Life is Crowdsourced

If we can ask enough people about it, we'll have the answer

Since Douglas Adams we know that the Earth is one big super-computer, the biggest artificial intelligence there is. Every last person is a part of this machine, calculating, crunching numbers, philosophising it all away.

It’s all crowdsourced, if you like, the way we are computing the single most important question in the universe: The Meaning of Life.

If you reading this are in fact a human being, we hereby invite you to write down the meaning of life as you perceive it. We’ll plug it all in to our own specialised AI, a close replica of the ultimate super-computer, and ping you once the results are in.

Happy computing!
