Quranic Statistics: Longest repeated sequences

١. والذين هم لفروجهم حافظون – إلا على أزواجهم أو ما ملكت أيمانهم فإنهم غير ملومين –  فمن ابتغى وراء ذلك فأولئك هم العادون – والذين هم لأماناتهم وعهدهم راعون

٢.  إني لكم رسول أمين –  فاتقوا الله وأطيعون  -  وما أسألكم عليه من أجر إن أجري إلا  على رب العالمين

٣. ان في ذلك لآية وما كان أكثرهم مؤمنين –  وإن ربك لهو العزيز الرحيم

1. And they who guard their private parts. Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed -But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors. And they who are to their trusts and their promises attentive

2. Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger. So fear Allah and obey me. And I do not ask you for it any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds.

3. Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers. – And indeed, your Lord – He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.

Procedural: Cameron confirms the Riots.

I can assure,
we need to stop them. We need to stop them.

Social Media.

I can announce,
we will help them.

I can confirm,
we need to meet them.

The Innocent Victims.

We will extend, we will defer,
we will weed them. We will weed them.

I can confirm,
we will keep them. We will keep them.

Us.

I can announce,
we will consider them,
We need to be them.
We will protect them.
We will compensate them.

The Innocent Victims.

We will track,
we will find,
we will charge,
we will punish them. We will punish them.

We need to show them. We need to show them

We will address the Criminals. We will address the Criminals.

The above text is a poem generated from the speech by David Cameron on August 11 2011, in which he addresses the UK citizens about the riots in London and several other cities. I extracted all the trigrams (three word phrases) beginning with “we will”, “We need” and “I can” and left them in the generated order. However, I found myself adding a addressee  (“them”) and a second voice.

Procedural: The people want. A Wiki Permutation.

the people want the fall of the regime. the people want the fall of the regime.
the people want the fall of the regime. the fall of the people want the regime.
the people want the people want the fall of the regime. the fall of the regime.
the fall of the regime. the people want the people want the fall of the regime.
the fall of the people want the regime. the people want the fall of the regime.
the fall of the people want the fall of the regime. the people want the regime.

the fall of the people want the people want the fall of the regime. the regime.
the regime. the fall of the people want the people want the fall of the regime.
the people want the regime. the fall of the people want the fall of the regime.
the regime. the people want the fall of the people want the fall of the regime.

In this entry I took the sentence “The people want the fall of the regime” and constructed all the largest possible subphrases (of at least two words), such that part of the phrase or the phrase itself has an entry in the Wikipedia lexicon. With these subsentences I constructed permutation of all possible new constructions. Not surprisingly, or maybe surprisingly, all the new constructions are valid sentences, however full of tautologies, as even the sentence as a whole has a Wikipedia dedication. Most interestingly maybe is that the sentence as such already contains its contradiction, which is only shown in the permutation.

Wiki-Phrases:
the people want the fall of the regime.
the people want X
the fall of X
the regime.
