If you pick twelve random notes (even if they are the most easy notes imaginable), the possibilities are indeed finite. But the notes of which we CAN choose twelve are infinite. Imagine a dodecaphonic with, for example, a B flattened twenty-four times. If we use JonR's scale, this B flat to the 24th power sounds exactly thesame as the B. But then for example a D will not be the usual D. Agreed, we can change this order. But then we cannot play any consonant songs anymore, for we would undermine the music axioms on which the music YOU make is based. So it would tear down your own theory. It simply does not stand.
