Unknown: I'm not even sure what that sequence of words means. What I mean is, do you mean it would just "act randomly"? Hey, whatd'yah know? The Forbidden Science of frequentist probability can be dug out and used.

Do you mean something else? "like"? does its "likes" have some sort of structure? ie, rules?

What would it actually mean for something to literally have no rules but not be random either? ie, I don't even know what that sequence of words means. It "sounds like" something that should mean something, but when I actually try to think about it... I don't have a clue.
