You mean mathematica?
In the example programs, there are millions of small examples for fractals. smiley

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=rule+372057639459+k%3D3 Look at that rule smiley
It's one of several possible mixes of rule 30 and rule 110 which are the most interesting of the simplest rules. Especially with random initialization, it yields very interesting results.

Here is another one of them smiley http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=rule+717436012956+k%3D3

if your a student they offer it at like 20% cost. my dad used my student status to get his copy for cheep. or you can make friends with some one that is a grad student math major at a big university, and sweet talk him into giving you a key, they usually have shit loads.

There is already a formula for everything, also including Life and The Universe.
$f(x) = 42$

the problem isn't the 42. You need to solve f(x)=42 for f, not for x smiley

Isn't the function simply defined as “F of x equals 42 for all x” without any more fuss?

that would be too hard, why not "F(x)=42" hehe, constant function

If that simple thing was it, we already would have found the question a LONG time ago lol

but i agree that 42 cannot be the result and the formula ... it must be something more trickier, perhaps "f(x)=0*x+2*21" ?
or perhaps even "f(x)=420/10+0*x"

The question I suppose is whatever x you put into the formula.

I guess, the whole thing leads to a complex not-normalized equation.

you can always divide both sides by 42 and then subtract 1 to get to a normalized form which = 0  nerd
