“The world is governed by chance. Randomness stalks us every day of our lives.”
– Paul Auster
L. Ron Hubbard, in his Scientology teachings, frequently used the term “randomity.” What this meant, for him, was the extent to which we experience surprise and the unexpected in our daily lives. An area with high levels of randomity would mean a very frequent level of shock and a marked inability to predict events accurately. An area of very low randomity would be characterized by extreme stability and the prevalence of very, very predictable patterns.
