Randomness is surprisingly hard to define. Fortunately the mathematical language we use to describe it is beautifully well defined.
Symmetry is one of the two guiding principles in understanding probabilities – if different outcomes are equivalent they should have the same probability.
The second guiding principle in probability theory is more subtle – universality.
Here's a resolution for one of probability theory's most famous paradoxes.
