I struggled to find out exactly why this means what it does for DAYS before just giving up and accepting it, something I often have to do with Japanese things that I don't understand.
The kanji translate loosely as "the futility of all things in heaven and earth" and here's what it means:
THIS. SIDE. UP.
*This also happens to be the name for an anime that uses the odd meaning as a play on words. The main character's name is Tenchi, so it can be read as "No need for Tenchi."
