Hello Mr. Major General Chapter 924

"What are you computing?" Huo Shaoheng leaned over and draped one hand on the back of Gu Nianzhis chair. He placed his other hand on the desk in front of her.
Gu Nianzhi had immersed herself into the world of mathematics. She didnt hear what Huo Shaoheng said.
Huo Shaoheng didnt mind. His eyes stopped on the iPad placed beside the desk. The web page displayed on the iPad was called "Chaos Mathematics."
Looking at the formulas and program Gu Nianzhi was running, Huo Shaoheng seemed to feel he understood something. Silently taking the iPad, he sat on the couch beside Gu Nianzhi and began to read it.
Gu Nianzhi had had a spurt of energy and had used over ten hours to finally organize a preliminary formula.
"Huo Shao, when did you come in?" Gu Nianzhi rubbed her stiffened neck and was shocked to see Huo Shaoheng sitting beside her. He had propped his head on one hand and was reading the iPad on his knee.
Huo Shaoheng looked up and his gaze swept across the computer screen. "I came not too long ago." Then he asked her, "What are you calculating?"
Gu Nianzhi was instantly happy and said excitedly, "Im using chaos mathematics to calculate probability! Brother Ze taught me this before, but he was using chaos mathematics to create artificial intelligence programs. I think I can borrow the concept to give it a try."
As she spoke, she pointed to the formula and data on the computer and explained them one by one. "You see, I first assumed that these incidents had occurred randomly and were not intended results by someone else. I categorized the incidents listed on the report and estimated the probability. Then I found a suitable algorithm to plug them in and saw what kind of results I would get."
"Oh? What result?" Huo Shaoheng also became interested. A lot of trouble could be spared if the algorithm was usable
"The result was that out of all the random incidents, the probability of these events happening was the highest."
"Explain this more clearly."
"Lets say that in theory, as long as these incidents werent deliberately planned, then the probability of each incident occurring should be random; there shouldnt be a certain possibility that it will occur. But from the looks of the results of my calculations, in order to achieve the final resultfor example, the result of me slipping this timethe series of incidents that occurred before that all had the highest possibility of occurring."
"Isnt that common sense?" Huo Shaoheng was perplexed. "If their possibilities werent the highest, then they wouldnt have occurred."
"Right." Gu Nianzhi began to smile. "Thats exactly it, but, while one incident could be explained like this, it wouldnt be a mere coincidence if the entire series of incidents had the highest possibility of occurring."
Huo Shaoheng was beginning to understand. He looked at Gu Nianzhi thoughtfully. "You mean that these incidents were deliberately selected? But who could be powerful enough to link together the highest possibilities within countless complicated incidents? Also, how did they link them together?"
"Right, actually this is where they revealed themselves. This proves that these incidents were false randoms.’" Gu Nianzhi raised her chin smugly, revealing her neck, which was as slender and pale as a swans.
Huo Shaoheng nearly lost himself as he stared at the energetic and beaming Gu Nianzhi. Ever since the incident in Germany, how long ago had it been since he last saw Gu Nianzhi so proud and energetic? This was real Nianzhi
Huo Shaoheng began to smile. Seeing Gu Nianzhi finally walk out of the shadows in her heart and display her allure and ability once again, he exhaled deeply.
His voice remained deep yet gentle as he said, "False randoms? How do you prove that?"
"Its very simple." Gu Nianzhi turned around to pick up the mouse and pointed to a formula computing on her computer. "Look here. The incidents with the highest probabilities had been selected to occur in sequence. A trigger is required to cause this. With this trigger, all the subsequent incidents would occur naturally."
Huo Shaoheng straightened his back in his seat, his gaze not leaving Gu Nianzhis beautiful and confident smile. "So you mean that this trigger was not randomly occurring but artificial?"
"Correct!" Gu Nianzhi stopped herself from clapping for Huo Shaoheng. There was a lot less wasted effort when it came to explaining things to intelligent people.
Huo Shaoheng leaned back into the sofa and said thoughtfully, "Then how would we find this artificial trigger? Did you think about that?"
Gu Nianzhi nodded. "Of course Ive thought about it. I need to prove whether or not my theory and algorithm are correct or not, so I must find the trigger that caused the subsequent incidents."
"How would you find it?"
"Huo Shao, you would help me find it, right?" Gu Nianzhi walked over and partially sat on the rug in front of the sofa. She snuggled against Huo Shaohengs leg and looked up at him with a smile. "Youd help me find this trigger, right?"
"How do you want me to help you?"
Gu Nianzhi pushed his leg. "Can you get your hands on the surveillance footage from those places?"
Huo Shaoehng pinched her exquisite and finely sculpted nose. "Okay. Ill go find them."
Gu Nianzhi happily nuzzled against his leg. "Hurry up! The sooner the better!"
Huo Shaoheng made her go downstairs for dinner while he went back to his office to give Yin Shixiong the order of obtaining the surveillance footage from the two areas in B University.
Yin Shixiong took the order, and Huo Shaoheng played the surveillance footage of the hospital where Gu Yanrans father had stayed. He had obtained it a long time ago. Huo Shaoheng never believed that Gu Yanrans fathers death was only an accident, but there was no evidence to prove otherwise, so he had obtained the surveillance footage from that day and had watched it repeatedly. However, he didnt find any indication that anyone had committed foul play.
No matter how he looked at Gu Yanrahs fathers hospital room, whether he fast-forwarded or played it at a slower speed, it all appeared to be an accident. No one had snuck into the room to kill him.
But today, when he had looked at the introduction to chaos mathematics and spoke to Gu Nianzhi, Huo Shaoheng suddenly had another idea.
Gu Yanrans father had been under their personnels surveillance the entire time, and they had originally intended to leave him there to lure a big fish. In the end, they didnt catch a big fish but had had their bait destroyed by someone else.
Huo Shaoheng had recalled the incident in the hospital a thousand times in his head, so when he had looked at chaos mathematics and Gu Nianzhis theory, he had instantly been enlightened. He couldnt help but think that the incident may have been the same as the incident Gu Nianzhi encountered. Were these actually all "false randoms?"
He sat in his office and listed the events that occurred when Gu Yanrans father died in the hospital. He began to analyze the probability of the occurrence of the incidents according to Gu Nianzhis theory.
The results werent surprising. The incidents really were the ones with the highest probability.
In order to achieve the death of Gu Yanrans father, the probability of the incidents occurring was the highest.
Then it made sense!
They had previously placed emphasis inside the hospital room, so what if the "trigger" had occurred outside the room?!
Just like dominoes, there must have been at least one push from a person in order to knock down the arranged dominoes.
Who was the person who pushed the dominos?
Huo Shaoheng looked at the surveillance footage scene by scene. This time he focused on outside the hospital room.
He saw the hooligan-like young men joking around in boredom in the hallway across from Gu Yanrans fathers hospital room. He also saw a nurse pushing an operating cart.
There were no other people outside the hospital room.
At that moment, though, his gaze was distracted by a beam of golden light. Where did this golden light come from?
