All that was in my mind was... FIND FAMOUS PEOPLE *******

Ok, so let's go over this, carefully.
My screen is 1920x1200, but because that's a bit unusual, I'll use 1920x1080 (That's 1920 pixels wide, 1080 pixels tall)
Area of a rectangle is length x width. Meaning, our 1920x1080 monitor has 2,073,600 pixels.
Now, let's look at a single pixel, shall we?
The picture shows that there's usually a red, green, and blue led for each individual pixel. Each color, red, green, or blue, has a number that correlates to the power of the led. That number is between 0 and 255. Because of limitations, computers use binary to represent data. A way of representing data is called hexadecimal. Which is 2^8, or 256. Since 0 can also be a number, we have a system where numbers can only go from 0 to 255.
Since we're dealing with 3 leds (blue, green, and red), we have: 2^8 * 2^8 * 2^8.
Which is 16,777,216 different combinations of the pixels.
Now we have to multiple 16,777,216 with the amount of pixels we have, 2,073,600. This turns out to be 34,789,235,097,600 different combinations. This is almost 35 trillion, but it's NOT infinite. It's a lot of pictures. But 34,789,235,097,601 is bigger than the answer we got.

And yet instead of these possibilities, we make gifs like this.

Another paradox is what's known as "Gabriel's Horn"

If you take the the equation y = 1/x from [1, infinity), and rotate it about the x-axis, you produce an object of infinite surface area, but finite volume.
What this means is that you could fill the horn with a finite amount of paint, but filling the horn with that much paint still would not provide enough paint to cover the outside of the horn.

Would it show me what it was like before the big bang?

If a program/website were made to continually show every combination of pixels:
Everything from FunnyJunk would show up
Every movie clip would show up
Every porn clip would show up
Even the most bizarre porn clips would show up
The nastiest stuff never thought imaginable would show up
If I had a point, I think I made it.
If not, enjoy the thoughts

Woo. people figuring out how a screen works. So ******* mind blowing.

I might be a cynical asshole.

Yeah, the number of possibilities is massive though
2 ^ (1920*1080*24)=2 ^ 49766400= google doesn even want to tell me the number so I had to split it up

2^(497) = 4.091738e+149
2^(664) = 7.654505e+199
2^(100) =1.2676506e+30
2^(1000) = 1.071509e+301

At this point I don't really care about all the numbers before the e since they won't make a heck of a difference.

So now we just take the 2^(497) * 2^(1000)*2^(100) and add 2^(664) *2^(1000)
2^(497) * 2^(1000)*2^(100) = 5.557803743e+480 and 2^(664) *2^(100) = 9.703237856e+229
This one here ^ isn't really worth thinking about since it's so much smaller than the other one.
So if you could view a million of these pictures a second and decide if they were usefull or not, it'd take you 5.557803743e+474 seconds or
1.7623680058e+467 years
Even if you take it to a billion pictures a second you'd just shave another e+3 off that e+467, so it'll still take longer than anything really.
Now if we take a smaller screen it could be easier, and reduce the number of colours to make it even easier.
So lets take a 32 x 24 pixel black and white screen, as in no grey, no colours, just black and white. That's still 1.5e+231 possibilities. Will still take ~e+215 years to look through.
Even if we reduce the picture size to just an 8 by 8 pixels, it'll still give you 1.8e+19 possibilities, which will take e+3 years to filter through, and that's a thousanish years.
So it is finite, mathematically, but really, it's infinite.

< This screen image, page, and comment are also some combinations.

Wait, can a sciencefag explain this for me.   
   
   
Only colors are RGB, and the screen is naturally black how does the monitor make white? White being the absence of color.

Answered my question thanks.


That sounds sarcastic but 100% srs

the same thing is with pi (3.14) it goes on forever, and therefore holds every number combination ever, including binary inside itself. The binary code can also be converted into what images there are out there, and even show us the future.

Let me try & work out how much that is.

8 Bits per pixel on an RGB monitor means each pixel is Base 255^3

Assuming the screen resolution is 1920x1080, that means the total number of images is:

1x16581375^2073600

Unfortunatley, I have no idea on how to convert that into Ax10^B, but it's a ******* huge number.

Like, it has 2 Million zeros using Base 16 Million.

Also, I'm have no idea if that's correct, I simply created that theory based on calculating the total number of states a Binary word can be, Although I did test the same thing in Base 10 & it seems to work

Have a free wallpaper of Yui that I vectored a while ago, to compensate for my probable wrongness
