The point that I am trying to make is that what you need is a way

of producing random numbers that is not algorithmic. A hardware

contraption might or might not meet this requirement.

As John von Neumann famously quipped, ?Anyone who attempts to generate

random numbers by deterministic means is, of course, living in a state of

sin.?
