25. The Library of Babel

It is a fascinating experiment that uses algorithms to prove Jorge Luis Borges’ theory that anything and everything text-based can be and has been created just through the random assignment of characters using a labyrinth of bookshelves in a hexagon format.

Every work of fiction or nonfiction can be created a word for word randomly given enough permutations.

Anything randomly discovered in the library will be in exactly the same spot when re-discovered without having to generate the millions and millions of pages of text and store it.
