As long as you use pseudo-random number generators, you will not be 
able to generate sequences that are very hard to redo. They are per 
definition easy to reproduce, even if you mix 100 different sequences. 
If you want to encrypt something or authenticate, you have to look into 
encryption respectively authentication methods, and not at 
pseudo-random generators.
