Monkeys writing a coherent novel

When you have a few monkeys in a room, hitting randomly at the keys of typewriters, it will take nearly an infinite amount of time before a coherent novel would be produced.

How do you shorten the time needed?
Have more monkeys.

An infinite number of monkeys would only take an instant of time to produce a coherent novel.
And so this is, how our universe comes about.

Interestingly, once the book is done, the sequel writes itself – inertial momentum.
We are in this sequel right now.

The third book is about the end, of course.
The usual trilogy.

  1. Monkeys won’t stop at the third. They will write 8 more novels. Anyways, it is weird to think about the potential time it takes for such a small chance to occur (the big bang), and even weirder to think about monkeys typing a novel by chance.

    1. It feels weird to have something rather than nothing. Why is there a universe rather than no universe? Why is there something rather than nothing? Science may explain the ‘how’ but we have to invent the ‘why’ ourselves.
