comment Can true randomness come out of mathematical rules?
Btw, real world is built of randomness. When it comes to quantum mechanics, you see that world barely exists at all, your body consists of particles which described only in terms of probability.

Please explain "randomness" you want. What you will be using this randomness for ? Maybe it's random-numbers generator for gaming, or for encryption ? Should numbers be unpredictable, or normally-distributed seemingly-random but predictable numbers are also ok ?

comment What are some examples of a mathematical result being counterintuitive?
It's offensive because I felt offended and it's counterintuitive because It's against my intuition. The common between the two (feelings and intuition) is that both are personal and not a scientific concepts.

@MichaelHardy we now just proved that intuition differs between different people. I thinnk that one who knows and hence "feels" some knowledge area better, will see things as basic and intuitive, while people new to it, will find same ideas as confusing and counterintutive. Intuition adjusts itself to our knowledge.
