Educators have long known that one of the most effective ways to teach math concepts, especially to reluctant learners, is by using stories and literature. Anything one might write would of course already exist. One can see any text as being pulled from the library by the act of the author defining the search letter by letter until they reach a text close enough to the one they intended to write. The text already existed theoretically, but had to be found by the act of the author's imagination.
The Library of Babel
In mainstream theories of natural language syntax, every syntactically-valid utterance can be extended to produce a new, longer one, because of recursion. Borges' narrator notes this fact, but believes that the Library is nevertheless infinite; he speculates that it repeats itself periodically, giving an eventual "order" to the "disorder" of the seemingly-random arrangement of books. In a short essay, W. Quine noted the interesting fact that the Library of Babel is finite that is, we will theoretically come to a point in history where everything has been written , and that the Library of Babel can be constructed in its entirety simply by writing a dot on one piece of paper and a dash on another.
These two sheets of paper could then be alternated at random to produce every possible text, in Morse code or equivalently binary. Writes Quine, "The ultimate absurdity is now staring us in the face: a universal library of two volumes, one containing a single dot and the other a dash. Persistent repetition and alternation of the two are sufficient, we well know, for spelling out any and every truth. The miracle of the finite but universal library is a mere inflation of the miracle of binary notation: everything worth saying, and everything else as well, can be said with two characters.
The full possible set of protein sequences Protein sequence space has been compared to the Library of Babel.
The same would be true of protein sequences if it were not for natural selection, which has picked out only protein sequences that make sense. Additionally, each protein sequence is surrounded by a set of neighbors point mutants that are likely to have at least some function.
The Library of Babel - Wikipedia
Daniel Dennett 's book Darwin's Dangerous Idea includes an elaboration of the Library of Babel concept to imagine the set of all possible genetic sequences, which he calls the Library of Mendel, in order to illustrate the mathematics of genetic variation. Dennett uses this concept again later in the book to imagine all possible algorithms that can be included in his Toshiba computer, which he calls the Library of Toshiba.

September 1, We greatly admire the work you do to promote children's literature! Thank you for your initiatives to share much-loved stories. While the launch of Indigenous Story Time was an exciting time for our team, for our Educational Consultant, Jackie Small, it was also a daunting time. She shares the journey of writing Classroom Notes for the project and what she learnt along the way.
