The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely

regarded as a bad move.
Many races believe that it was created by some sort of

God, though the Jatravartid people of Viltvodle VI believe
that the entire Universe was in fact sneezed out of the nose of
a being called the Great Green Arkleseizure.

The Jatravartids, who live in perpetual fear of the time they call The Coming of The Great White Handkerchief, are small blue creatures with more than fifty arms each, who are

therefore unique in being the only race in history to have
invented the aerosol deodorant before the wheel.
However, the Great Green Arkleseizure Theory is not
widely accepted outside Viltvodle VI and so, the Universe
being the puzzling place it is, other explanations are
constantly being sought.
For instance, a race of hyperintelligent pan-dimensional
beings once built themselves a gigantic supercomputer
called Deep Thought to calculate once and for all the Answer
to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
