I think you still don't get it, A. Total randomness can't do anything of 
the sort. The closest event that comes to mind is the generation of a 
star out of a random aggregation of untold quadrillions of particles 
that after hundreds of millions of years coalesce into a shrinking, 
slowly heating blob. For that, you need a gravitational field that 
doesn't exist on your computer screen unless you put it into the program 
by hand, along with a humungous physics engine to constrain what the 
random infalling thingies do when they start getting squeezed. Don't try 
this at home, kids.
