If one randomly permutes the 26 letters of the alphabet, it can take just an instant or an incredible amount of time to produce a 12-letter word: theoretically, it can take from 1 second to infinity. The system is initialized at the beginning of the exhibition, starting the permutation/query for a 12-letter word. Will a word emerge during the exhibition? Will we have the chance to see one? Which word will it be?
