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 with the permutation/query for a 12-letter word. Will a word emerge? Will we ever have the chance to see one? Which word will it be?


# Prediction, chance, and randomness

# Probability, logic, sense
