    Supposedly this website stores everything imaginable. I cannot believe that this is real. How could they have enough storage space to store all this information?

    It isn’t. You can read about it on the About page (2nd paragraph): https://libraryofbabel.info/About.html

    Simply put, there’s no need to. What Jonathan did instead was create a pseudo-random number generator that can be reversed (think of it like just a math equation) which creates every possibility in the Library. It essentially gives you the same experience without having to store them, and also being able to search within the books, limited to a single page though.
