Guide to PDF #205 Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect a researcher for The Hitchhiker's PDF or the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who for the last fifteen years has been posing as an out of work actorTogeth The universe is a joke Even before I was shown the meaning of life in a dream at 17 then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes I knew this to be true and yet I have always felt a need to search for the truth that nebulous ill treated creature Adams has always been to me to be a welcome companion in that journey Between the search for meaning and the recognition that it s all a joke in poor taste lies Douglas Adams and luckily for us he doesn t seem to mind if you lie there with him He s a tall guy but he ll make roomFor all his crazed unpredictability Adams is a powerful rationalist His humor comes from his attempts to really think through all the things we take for granted It turns out it takes little than a moment s uestioning to burst our preconceptions at the seams yet rarely does this stop us from treating the most ludicrous things as if they were perfectly reasonableIt is no surprise that famed atheist Richard Dawkins found a friend and ally in Adams What is surprising is that people often fail to see the rather consistent and reasonable philosophy laid out by Adams uips and absurdities His approach is much personable and less embittered than Dawkins which is why I think of Adams as a better face for rational materialism which is a polite was of saying atheism Reading his books it s not hard to see that Dawkins is tired of arguing with uninformed idiots who can t even recognize when a point has actually been made Adams humanism however stretched much further than the contention between those who believe and those who don tWe see it from his protagonists who are not elitist intellectuals they re not even especially bright but damn it they re trying By showing a universe that makes no sense and having his characters constantly uestion it Adams is subtly hinting that this is the natural human state and the fact that we laugh and sympathize shows that it must be trueIt s all a joke it s all ridiculous The absurdists might find this depressing but they re just a bunch of narcissists anyhow Demanding the world make sense and give you purpose is rather self centered when it already contains toasted paninis attractive people in bathing suits and Euler s Identity I say let s sit down at the bar with the rabbi the priest and the frog and try to get a song going Or at least recognize that it s okay to laugh at ourselves now and again It s not the end of the worldIt s just is a joke but some of us are in on it
