Imagine that you are given the goal of creating the complete works of William Shakespeare.
I feel compelled to relate the old Stanley Myron Handelman bit on this subject. He reports that he had heard that a roomful of monkeys with typewriters would eventually accomplish this feat, so he decided to try, and put the monkeys in a room with typewriters. After a while he decided to see how they were doing, and looked in. To his chagrin, "... they weren't typing! They were just messing around in there!"

You need to gain a greater understanding math and probabilities.

(Why are so many people searching for something that has already found us ?)
LOL, of course I was using that to try to show how much chaos would have to occur compared to how little order was necessary to create higher development.
Moving to the science of logic, Occam's Razor predicts that the most simple explanation is the most likely one.
That's probably why ya can't get the monkeys to type.
