Random Rockies

Here’s an idea for a science fiction story: Somebody finds out that some part of the world has been created using a known random number generator. A predictable generator, that is.

Harkening back to a previous post, for instance, let’s say that someone notices that a simple program using a standard modulo-multiplication random number generator can create an almost exact profile of the Rocky Mountains, looking west from the Great Plains.

This must have been done already in plenty of ways, though I’d not know, not having read much sci-fi in a long time.
