anyways, my idea is to make something with random unicode characters, but using that law, so it appears like it could be intelligible. but i need to write up a program for randomization using the law. i need the law first. :-/

there is a law for this though, and it's not just english, every language that uses characters follows along a similar curve where one letter is used mostest, then another follows, etc. and the frequency fo the letters is something like decreasing exponential if i recall correctly. i'm trying to remember the name for the law.

i'll have to watch godel escher bach lectures from MIT over again. :-/

η..ι...υ..ει..οι..Η...Ι...ΕΙ...ΟΙ...Υ = eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

do any of you know the name of the law which governs character frequency in natural language? the curve associated with the most frequently used, then the next, and so on? like in english, i think it's the 'e'??
