Randomness !!

a boring lecture on a boring topic from a boring professor on a boring afternoon on a boring monday is one of those times in your life when u drift away into a different zone , where one thinks about stupid , crazy , preposterous , wild , innovative sometimes , stupid (mentioning it again coz i am trying to emphasizing it :P ) stuff,,
phew that was a big sentance..but you get the point ?
well one such boring monday afternoon..i was in that zone..
and i was wondering about what the term random truly means..

according to the definition , it basically means any event , process , series etc which have no dependence on previous or post event , process , series etc..blah blah..u get the point..
but i was wondering , is it truly random..can anything in this universe be truly random ..or is everything interlinked to form a complexity we have not yet been truly understood..i know i am entering the intelligent design vs evolution debate here , but why not consider they are one and the same thing , for a moment think about it..
is it possible that what we called random events or random behavior or random all planned and all in order of the universe's plan..

now i am not implying that everything is decided by one person (GOD or angel or wteve)... lol..i am an i would never suggest that..
actually the whole thought process was stimulated by the discussion going on in my class room as i have to periodically have to pause my day dreaming and actually pay attention in class to what Joshi Sir was talking and he was discussing the generation of random numbers . Thats what triggered this whole new world of queries , hypothesis in my head , it made me think the whole day (in my free time ofcourse)

after all the madness , i concluded ive just day dreamed and that i may never really able to find out the whole deal in my lifetime...


ps. the above literature might not make anysense to anyone..apologies to the same.

Somehow it strikes me as karmic that this has been posted on Teachers' Day.
