This recipe is a proof-of-concept program showing what is possible with just a 2x2 image using 15 different colors (yielding a total of 50,625 images when run). In terms of the original thought experiment, a total of <code>16777216 ** 480000</code> images should be possible given the 800x600x24 specifications (or <code>1 &lt;&lt; 11520000</code> in binary). In base 10 that is <code>10 ** 3467865.55</code> and shows that there are an enormous number of possible states that a 800x600 canvas can take.</p> <p>If you have any comments or wish to down-vote this recipe, please provide your insight as to what could be improved upon and how you would go about fixing any problems that you might find.</p>
