Combinatorial Explosion
2023-02-05

The other day someone asked if it were possible for two people to settle on the same prompt and then get the same end result. Technically the answer is yes, because numbers always have a limit, however, the probability here is insanely rare. It’s kind of a trippy thing to think about. So get this…

When you enter a prompt it is assigned a random seed, and the seed creates the random noise from which the image generates from. A seed can be from 0 to 4,294,967,295. So let’s round and say chances are 1 in 4,294,967,296 since 0 is an option – but that’s not it. One generation gives you 4 images, so technically now the chances are 4 times that now. But wait, what about parameters? If Stylize is from 0 to 1000 in V4, that is now 1000 more options per seed, per grid. Then add Chaos into the mix and we have 0 to 100 more options per seed, per stylize. Now if you multiply all of the options together we are looking at something like 1 in 174,000,000,000,000,000. I didn’t know this but that number is 174 quintillion.

The problem is that we are not even done yet. We could use 4a or 4b, V2 or V3, and even toss in aspect ratios. The combinational explosion is too large for me to even contemplate. So basically the amount of variation and randomness is so freakin’ high that it would be amazing if two people not only landed on the same exact prompt, but also got the same final image… I’m not going to do that math, so let’s call this chat done.
