I thought of the infinite monkey theorem as I watched my two-year-old granddaughter gleefully type on my iPhone, her fingers just the right size for the little keys!
The "Infinite Monkey Theorem" states that an infinite number of monkeys typing an infinite number of key strokes will eventually type the complete works of Shakespeare.
(I'd be shocked if random typing managed to recreate even one of his sonnets!)
I guess the underlying idea is that enough randomness will eventually create order (and meaning)?
So if I just add to the mess on my messy desk, will it mess itself into order?!
(It would be nice... But I really don't expect that to happen!)
