Infinite Monkey Theorem!



The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting typewriter keys at random for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a particular chosen text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

I really wonder how the Bard would feel about that? would he be filled with righteous indignation or flattered to be linked with science. I dunno! What do you think?

Interesting concept, for sure! and most definitely mathematical concerning probabilities, because Monkey's do not a sonnet make or to be poetical; monkey's maketh not a sonnet! but to break it down in layman's terms, if a monkey (monkey being a metaphor) continually hits keys on a typewriter at random, eventually a sequence will form which would make some sort of contextual meaning!.

Do you ever think about your thoughts? or the nature of things or even the reason why you think the way you do? like the things you like etc etc?

Things like loss i.e. death, emotional pain i.e. a broken heart, betrayal etc will affect your thinking and perspective and move you to ask deep seated questions which seem to have no definite answers!

Are you affected by?

Culture
Society
Family
Your Faith or Lack of It 
Profession
Your Peers
The Media
Social Conditioning
Swagger (I guess that could come under Social Conditioning!)



Do they influence your thinking?

The list is endless and I could go on and on, but suffice to say that we're all affected by all of these things, sometimes sequentially (i.e. in a formal manner - structured learning/education) other effects are random; i.e. learned nature (mostly subconsciously) habits and mannerisms which we pick up along the way as a result of our associations and where we've been. 

Whatever happens to you and whatever sequences go into forming your character and the person you're becoming (we never stop developing til the day we draw our last!) rest assured that you're the correct equation that the Almighty intended!

There, I said It!
