__Unique Numbers__

If you were looking for a number, try here for
a base-32 one or here for those of you with a
decimal bent.

I believe there are several possible uses for numbers with my
particular character.

#### Here's what you get.

A unique sequence of numbers - and I mean **unique**!
Not only will no one else **ever **get the same sequence but
no one else will ever get **any of the same numbers **- **ever**.
By my calculation the method I use will give me about
20,439,879,147,794,490 different sequences. With the world
population currently standing at about 7.117 billion people that
means that each person on the planet could take 2,871,979
sequences and still never repeat a single number.

Each sequence will be about 1,938,077,995,156 numbers long. If
you consume one number every millisecond it would take you over 60
years to reach the end of your sequence.

#### The Maths

I've put together some discussion of the maths behind these
sequences here.

#### What we could use them for.

I think there are several current possibilities for using sequences
like this.

**Encryption **- let's face it, this is the classic
one-time pad. You hand the details of your sequence to whoever
wants to send you data and the message is uncrackable.
Essentially you will be encrypting your message with a random
bit sequence.
**Card numbers** - if the
card industry could invest in something as simple as this your
card number need never be the same twice. How can anyone
impersonate you then?
- I am sure you have some ideas.

You can find some details about the maths on my Maths page. If you would like to contact me
