signatures and digital signatures such that either 1) visualization of
the public key or cryptographic signature looks anything like the
written signature, or 2) the written signature can be used in any useful
way in the generation of the public key or cryptographic signature.
Public keys and signatures look for all intents and purposes like random
noise. Public keys can be generated from any seed you want, but to be
useful as public keys and not just passwords, they need to be generated
from random noise.
