I'm just curious --do you feel numbers derived by these supposed truely random type generators is better then the typical functions?
If you are trying to develop a sequence --wouldn't you want somethng you control?
Only if one believes that such as sequence exists:) My approach can be best described as Monte Carlo method with a minor (well major:) exception that target sequence result is missing (some future lottery event). I sure hope that this particular source of randomness (generated by radioactive decay) is genuine, but hey if it is not than Quantum Mechanics is deterministic and we will have controlled teleportation/time machine/levitation etc:)
You are absolutely right, either one have deterministic system (sequence) which points out to some flaw in the the RNG algorithm, or if mechanical ie ball paint influences a trajectory (and can be detected ie by Lyupanov method)or by all purposes there is unpredictability.
Note that If by an accident/chance random sequences I generate hits a major jackpot, it won't automatically mean that Quantum Mechanics is somehow in tune with a larger order in the Universe and can perform predictions and absolve us from indeterminism:)
