The chances that anyone has ever shuffled a pack of cards in the same way twice in the history of the world are infinitesimally small, statistically speaking. The number of possible permutations of 52 cards is ‘52 factorial’ otherwise known as 52! or 52 shriek. This is 52 times 51 times 50 . . . all the way down to one. Here's what that looks like:



That Which Has Yet To Be Imagined: The Collapse of the Real

We walk down the road and the streetlights pop
It feels like our glow is turning them off

The cycle of our spirit - its ebb and flow
Time speeds up to frenzied crescendo

Fear gives way to acceptance and faith
Realizing the soul is eternally safe

Able to see clearly - all that remains
No longer fooled by internal games

Our true future - impossible to guess
It has never once been imagined yet!
