PATTERN OF RANDOM THINGS

Oh, many a shaft at random sent
Finds mark the archer little meant!
And many a word at random spoken
May soothe, or wound, a heart that's broken!"-Sir Walter Scott

{I was going through http://www.lifebliss.org/beunclutched.asp (from Nithyananda) article in internet and the following thought came in my mind, the first 3 paragraphs have been taken from this site}

Thoughts are not necessarily correlated and sequential. Our thinking can come from any logic, it never follows pattern apparently. Our thoughts sometime are controlled and follow in a specific direction, but sometime illogical and irrational.

So, our entire belief in rationality and logic is based on the premise that your thinking is sequential and it follows a pattern is not always true. They are like the bubbles in a fish tank which appear connected; but there is no connection between one bubble and another. They are all independent. We make them dependent by applying consciousness and intelligence.
Just try this. For a few minutes, truthfully, write down all your thoughts as they occur to you. When you read what you have written again, it will appear to you that what you have written is a madman's diary.
We do not have control in our thoughts, and then are we all mad? No, not of course!
In every human brain thought flows in random way, jumping from past to present, future to past, fantasy to reality, logic to ritual thinking.

Then whom we call mad? May be we can define a person mad who does not have control on himself, by means of his random thought and activity and he is not able to follow specific guideline of living because of his mental disturbance, where most of thoughts playing beyond the specific logic of normal human being living in that civilization. So the concept of madness is also defined by us.
To proceed with our civilization, we need to follow some defined and specific ways of thinking and implementing then in our day to day work. In some of the multinational companies we advise people to have disciplined thought, disciplined word and disciplined action, to grow along with the company and as a result the industry grows and so as our civilization. To make our life more controlled, comfortable and systematic we need to perform disciplined activities. But still random illogical thoughts often come in our mind. Why they come?

Thoughts are combination of three major factors (Remembrance- Intelligence- Concentration).
1. Remembrance and dreams and incidents, recollecting ingredients from past – present – future give us the basic elements of thoughts.
2. Then the elements are processed in different logics in human brain- so logic in Brain also plays one role in thought generation – we call it Intelligence
3. Finally, our Consciousness/Willingness- the power of Concentration also decides which elements to be considered at that point of time and what logic has to be applied in it.

So, first the ingredients comes in our brain randomly, depending on the retrieval of either remembering things, or watching something or we can get elements by perception- listening -hearing, smelling or tasting etc. It’s the consciousness and logic of human brain that drives the flow of our thoughts. But why our brain fetches things from our memory randomly, if we are not concentrated in one particular issue. That means Consciousness and Random Processing or human brain is reciprocal and at any point of time if one is preciously defined, other can not be. For an example if you take a sample of your thoughts for few minutes and they are all random, then you can not determine the level of concentration to particular subject at that time, which leads us to think about Heisenberg’s Theory of Uncertainty.

My main objective is not to find the correlation between thought processing theory and Heisenberg’s Theory. What I have tried to say is Concentration and Random fetching is reciprocal. More you are concentrated in one subject, less the irrelevant thought will come in your mind.

Let’s see random things with Randomized Algorithm. A randomized algorithm or probabilistic algorithm is an algorithm which employs a degree of randomness as part of its logic. In common practice, this means that the machine implementing the algorithm has access to a pseudo-random number generator. Two examples have been given below after this article.

That means we can make some complex logic which will generate random numbers. So apparently they are random, but they must have a pattern and should follow some specific logic. Creating absolute Random number through Algorithm is impossible. May be possible by hardware, but there also the logic for movement of particles and its components will come into consideration.

Similarly the random thoughts and memories are also driven by some logic. The retrieval of thought elements is nothing but chemical reaction in human brain cell, embedded in DNA and Gene of the cell. This year we have seen that the US scientists won Nobel Prize in chemistry and medicine for their discovery of DNA/RNA interference and gene transcriptions. Scientists believe all organisms are to some extent controlled by their genetic make up.

I am not going into the details of these inventions. My intension is to demonstrate that there must have some patterns of random things. This pattern does not necessarily be programming software, but chemical pattern that follows a definite logic, apparently looks random movement, but is the consequence of some simultaneous iterative events.

There are some superstitions like do not burn 3 cigarettes with a matches stick or 13 people should not go somewhere, etc. It’s all because we have tried to find a pattern from the random incidents. I am not supporting these superstitions, but neither can wipe out that there can never be any correlations between numbers and incidents.

Coming back to random thoughts, we can very well say some chemical reaction is going on, with some defined rules which retrieve data from our memory. Now 'remembering' things and 'recalling' them on demand is one of the things that computers - particularly databases - can do very well. Search and recall is one of the hottest technologies and the iconic status in this space is held by Google, but Yahoo and MSN are close behind. If this search engine fails in Human Brain we call this trait as Alzheimers where the person is very much active from the processing of brains perspective, however his mind is affected to the extent that he cannot remember even the most basic of things. That means the search engine has crashed. The random logic is behaving randomly. Alzheimer is most probably a condition brought upon by genetic factors though there is still no unanimity in this regard.

So, from our own experience we can say that often thoughts are independent and we try to correlate them by our logic. Nithyananda - my friends asserted in his site “Connected thoughts are the foundation of all illusions and suffering”. I do not fully agree this conclusion. To me everything is illusion, starting from World, Universe, Events, Civilization, Dream, Destiny, and Relation to Thoughts and all often behaves randomly, though it seems that it follows a basic pattern apparently. Sometime everything behaves out of the pattern. This is exception and we can also call it randomness. Like the solar eclipse. In day time suddenly we can see that Sun disappears from view, either completely or partly. It can be an exception or random, but there is one logic behind it. It happens because moon comes between Sun and Earth.

Randomness is a property of all logic, which proves that these exceptions are the basis of the original rule. But in the nature of randomness varies from each entity to another entity. Like our thoughts are more random than the movement of earth. But if we take a bigger time span, or broad overview of the universe, it may happen that Earth is nothing but a particle moving in brawnier motion, randomly and unpredictably. It’s unpredictable because we have not revealed the logic behind it, but there is obviously some pattern which follows a logic behind all Brownian motion (The physical phenomenon where minute particles, immersed in a fluid or floating on its surface, move about randomly).

For an example if a programmer is writing a code with a complex logic and in most of the cases it is working as expected in desired logic, but sometime it is not consistent and behaving randomly, that means the programmer has written some additional logic reluctantly. But since the program behaving randomly that is also a part of some logic.
Sometimes we put random logic to handle exceptions, like recursions. If one program is working in repetitive pattern and after few executions we put some base rule (termination condition) for coming out of the pattern that is breaking the recursion. So randomness is also a part of exceptions rules.

Similarly for our random thinking there must be some fuzzy logic. I am firmly telling is because I believe the Universe is an illusion and somebody has created it. While creating he must have kept some logic for everything, be it small or big, living or inert. So the mystery of creation lies in the exceptions of patterns, in the randomness of the every activity.

Some reference from Wikipedia
Example 1 (in Mathematics)
Linear congruential generators (LCGs) represent one of the oldest and best-known pseudorandom number generator algorithms. The theory behind them is easy to understand, and they are easily implemented and fast. It is, however, well known that the properties of this class of generator are far from ideal. If higher quality random numbers are needed, and sufficient memory is available (~ 2 KBytes), then the Mersenne twister algorithm is a preferred choice.
LCGs are defined by the recurrence relation:
Where Vn is the sequence of random values and A, B and M are generator-specific integer constants. mod is the modulo operation.
The period of a general LCG is at most M, and in most cases less than that. The LCG will have a full period if:
1. B and M are relatively prime
2. A-1 is divisible by all prime factors of M.
3. A-1 is a multiple of 4 if M is a multiple of 4
4. M > max(A, B, V0)
5. A > 0, B > 0
---
Example 2 (in C++)
Given a random number seed that is greater or equal to zero. Given a total sample size greater than 1. Given a prime number that cannot be evenly divided into the total sample size.
A full cycle can be generated with the following logic.
Each number in the sample_size should occur once.
unsigned int random_seed = 0;
unsigned int sample_size = 3000;
unsigned int generated_number = random_seed % sample_size;
unsigned int prime_number = 7;
unsigned int increment = prime_number;
for(unsigned int iterator = 0; iterator < sample_size; ++iterator)
{ generated_number = (generated_number + increment) % sample_size;}

-----------
The term Brownian motion (in honor of the botanist Robert Brown) refers to either
The physical phenomenon where minute particles, immersed in a fluid or floating on its surface, move about randomly; or The mathematical models used to describe such random movements.
-----------
Recursion, in mathematics and computer science, is a method of defining functions in which the function being defined may be used within its own definition. The term is also used more generally to describe a process of repeating objects in a self-similar way. When two mirrors are pointed towards each other, the repeating images that occur are a form of recursion.
