Once, the Museum held an art contest. All the young and aspiring artists were invited to present their creations. On the third day, the finalists presented their works before a panel of judges.
Matthew Alan Theodore Henderson was first. His creation was one of lines and angles, shapes and subtle shades of gray, constantly moving and shifting position. "The arrangements repeat themselves exactly every twelve years, three months, fourteen days, five hours, twenty-seven minutes, and three seconds," Matthew said. The judges agreed that this was very remarkable.
Next was Cynthia Heather Allison Oldemar the Second. Hers was a kaleidoscopic blend of vibrant colors and flowing shapes, perpetually mixing and un-mixing in a hypnotic lack of pattern. "No arrangement will ever repeat itself," Cynthia said. The judges agreed that this was very creative.
Finally, George Orville Daniels presented his work. At first glance, it wasn’t impressive. It was a simple combination of ordinary colors and normal shapes, moving in a semi-haphazard fashion. The judges were ready to move on when George spoke. "It’s alive," he said. "It may be in the same arrangement tomorrow; it may not. That’s up to it to decide."
And the judges agreed that this was indeed the most impressive work of the day. So they gave all three congratulatory honors, with George Orville Daniels’s the highest, and set them on display in the Museum of Ingenious Numbers and Designs, where they still reside today.
