The point is, you fucking retard, that anything can be simplified so that it sounds harmless when it really isn't. Murder is just when someone happens to occupy the space around a bullet you placed in the air. Rape is simply the process by which the atoms in your penis find their way inside a bunch of atoms that just happen to be arranged in the shape of a vagina.

So... if I take Pi, and find the decimal offset and length for Toy Story 3, would sharing those two numbers be illegal?
In fact, since theoretically all numbers that make Pi can and might contain all information ever created and to be created, is Pi itself illegal to share?
>In fact, since theoretically all numbers that make Pi can and might contain all information ever created and to be created
There's a misconception about this. In Pi you can find any finite sequence of (natural) numbers with probability 1, which doesn't necessarily mean that Toy Story 3 is on it.
filtered. fucking christ. I've never met someone so dumb as to not know what cloudflare is, so ignorant as to hide their hostname and username, and so autistic as to not know what illegal numbers are.

I've said, and I quote:
>with probability 1, which doesn't necessarily mean that Toy Story 3 is on it.
We are saying the same, but the fact that something happens with probability 1 doesn't mean it is going to happen. Picture an archery target and draw a line over it. Since the line has a (Lebesgue) measure 0, the probability of an arrow impacting in that line is 0 and, therefore, the probability of NOT impacting there is 1 (according to probability theory). Nevertheless, you can throw an arrow an impact that line you just draw.
Probability 1 doesn't imply that it's going to happen.

yeah, well... it's a matter of identity, not security

Ah, now I get your angle on this. But still, neither of us can prove, outside of statistics, that Toy Story 3 is or is not in Pi.
However, statistics can tell you that it is very likely to be there.
Atoms are finite, because matter cannot be created or destroyed. This gives unique clusters of them significance.
Data is an intangible concept, something we pulled out of our sapient asses.

or stuff like0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF01 ;-)
become illegal as well?
(First time I'm using a smiley on 4chan, I swear)
Atoms are finite if universe is finite. You're statement implies the universe is finite, and you are free to believe that, but there isn't any evidence to suggest that belief is correct. The universe may be infinite, and thus could contain infinite mass and matter. At any rate it contains enough atoms to do whatever you want with it, certainly enough to make "unique" clusters worthless

Daily reminder that if you had a library where each book contained 500 pages, each page had 40 lines, each line had 50 places a character could be placed and there were a set of 100 possible characters to place, all in a library containing all possible combinations for a book, there would be 100^1,000,000 books in that library.
One of those books will have the cure for cancer

If those 1s and 0s have any meaning to them then they were created of work people did. You never would have generated that pattern any other way. This also covers re-encoding because the series of 1s and 0s you made by re-encoding the original are derivative of it.
That's how it works in the law. Yes it's theoretically possible to generate the right pattern to get a movie, but the chances are so remote that it's not even worth considering seriously even outside the law.
