    Jonathan,

    This site is wonderful. I was initially dubious that it was a superficial PRNG simulation, but after noticing your character limits and reading in the theory section of this site about your search for an invertible algorithm, I came away very impressed.

    You might be interested in my essay “The Bookbinder’s Guide to Destroying the Universe: three views of the magnitude of the Library of Babel,” which looks at the physical impossibility of constructing a total library, including a thermodynamic calculation of how much information the universe can contain without collapsing into a black hole.

    Thank you for sharing, Eugene!

    I did some time-and-space calculations regarding an older algorithm the site once used: https://libraryofbabel.info/spaceandtime.html
