    Hi Ed Gore, I think Delengroth answered your question very clearly and it should be easy to understand if you’re not as dumb as you make yourself out to be. Now would you be so nice and take your sad trolling somewhere else ? Cheers !

    And whom might you be? What ever happened to a civil discussion? Is this the part where you can’t have a discussion anymore so you evacuate one of the people? Oppression is sad! And this is none of your business anyway! If you don’t have anything to contribute, don’t intervene!

    And there is nothing clear at all about Basile’s suspiciously long hiatus for three years! No one can explain that, so why do you still trust him even when it’s clear he’ll never release the downloadable version and source code despite him saying he would?

    Why yes it is my business since it’s my thread you’re derailing. Anyway Delengroth’s explanations were not lost for all, his analogy with numbers who kind of exist even if nobody wrote/pronounced them before will probably lead me somewhere.

    Lead you to do what? The Library of Babel is nothing more than a thought experiment, none of it physically exists until it is brought into existence and then promptly dissolved, but NOT STORED! Only single pages of the Library exist at any given point of time, that is, viewing something gives it physical existence! And let’s face it, you probably live in a simulation anyway, so go figure!
