    … Is it April 1st already?

    I don’t even know where to begin.

    That the proposed physically-based RNG appears to be simultaneously more complicated and less random than existing such systems?

    That you can zoom way out and squint and SEE the famous Lena photograph in Figure 4 (in the blue supposed cipher)?

    I stopped skimming at that point. Help? What the heck even happened in this paper? Is it one of those Markov-chain produced papers?
