Computers generate random numbers in an attempt to glean meaning out of probability

Numbers are constant. Until they’re not. Our inability to influence outcome is the great equalizer, Makes the world fair. Computers generate random numbers in an attempt to glean meaning out of probability. Endless numerical sequences, lacking any pattern. During cataclysmic global events, – tsunami, earthquake, the attacks on 9/11-, these random numbers suddenly stop being random. As our collective consciousness synchronizes, so do the numbers. Science can’t explain the phenomenon but religion does. It’s called prayer. A collective request, sent up in unison. A shared hope. Numbers are constant, until they’re not.
