As I asked ... define what you mean byHow do you know your list of numbers is random?

*random*. Then we should be able to ascertain if my list of numbers is random, or not.

Suppose no discernible pattern emerges. Then, in principle, you would never be able to predict my next choice. So, are the numbers I'm spewing random? Are they truly random?If there is a pattern, after enough numbers we could in principle predict your next choice. But it may require an extraordinarily large set of numbers before a pattern emerges.
