Not if you had the algorithmic model that I described. If you knew the location of the book you had in mind, you could plug that info in and regenerate the text to return to. It'd be mad complicated though, obviously.

That's not how this one is set up though, it only has every possible page of the library, not every book/shelf/wall/hexagon.

I wouldn’t have believed it was possible even if it’s just pages

I have to think though no matter what the algorithm if enough people started using it the bandwidth or whatever it would take to regenerate the same pages in perpetuity would collapse

I’m flabbergasted tbh

But it is true that using the browse function that allows you to jump from spot to spot in the library doesn’t really offer everything does it?

I can’t wrap my head around that being possible

I am starting a reading pattern of just 5 pages a day from Robert Greene’s “Mastery”. There are 316 pages in the book, and I will be taking 316 photos then of the pages. I just don’t want to read with a book anymore, besides the “Twenty Four Hours a Day” book I read each day. I am taking 5 photos of 5 pages and reading on my phone and then moving onto the next 5 the next day. I guess I could have just bought the e-book.

Currently reading The 1001 Nights (or The Arabian Nights, if you prefer) for Karen. We were on a Dickens kick, but Martin Chuzzlewit soured that, so after let's see... Hard Times, Nicholas Nickelback sorry Nickleby and Bleak House, we decided to move on before coming back to him.

Incredible that stories written nearly a thousand years ago can still entertain and be read so easily (obviously they're translations but still). Just got started on "Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp"; really enjoyed "The Tale of the Hunchback" - hilarious - and of course the voyages of Sindbad. You can see how a lot of elements were taken from these tales to create our own western versions.

A delightful coincidence! Just two days ago, I was perusing Wikipedia and was reading the entry for Infinite Monkey Theorem which led me to discover "The Library of Babel." Seeing the title surface again here I made sure to read the story and enjoyed it thoroughly.

And I simply must mention a similar project in real life, related, as all things I mention inevitably are, to Brian Eno and his Long Now Foundation.



The Rosetta Project is an effort to preserve all languages that have a high likelihood of extinction over the period from 2000 to 2100. Samples of such languages are to be inscribed onto a disc of nickel alloy three inches (7.62 cm) across. A Version 1.0 of the disc was completed on November 3, 2008.

The Rosetta Disk fits in the palm of your hand, yet it contains over 13,000 pages of information on over 1,500 human languages. The Long Now Foundation published an interactive graphical version of the Disk you can explore here:

https://rosettaproject.org/

Thanks for the inspiring read!
