68 Everything you'll ever say, think, and write is already in this online library

By The Podglomerate / The Daily Dot

If you do enough math, you can generate every combination of letters and numbers possible. Most of the results will be gibberish, but they will also contain Shakespeare, Harry Potter, the unpublished final Game of Thrones book, your 6th grade diary, the actual cure for cancer, and every email and text message anyone has ever sent — or will ever send — ever. Even the words I'm typing right now already exist somewhere in the Library of Babel, an algorithm conceived by evil genius/literature student Jonathan Basile. This is the digital equivalent of "infinite monkeys on infinite typewriters" eventually writing Hamlet. But when you see it in action, live on the Internet, you will question your own free will and doubt the very concept of original thought. Alli and Jen speak to Basile about the inspiration for this terrifying project and the deep existential panic it causes.
