Stephen, you know my aversion against random: it is a disorderly sequence the origination of which is not (yet?) disclosed to us - usually excluded from our ordinate view of nature since it deprives the prediction according to the so far derived (physical?) laws.
My second part to your question: Meaningful is derived as based on our so far accumulated knowledge about the world. It grows steadily over the millennia. So which 'meaningful' do you mean? yesterday's, or of 1000BC? Your "correct decryption scheme" is by the 2nd par. above. Regards John M On Fri, Mar 8, 2013 at 12:16 AM, Stephen P.
