all we would do is add and overflow whenever random is used.
That sounds like a very crude version of a pseudo random number generator.
Generally random number generation is tied to the system clock.
This is not true. Sometimes people are recommended to seed the RNG using he clock, but this doesn't improve randomness at all.

So is randomness inherent in the thing? Or is randomness just a description of our ignorance?
If you flip a coin and it lands on the ground, but you haven't looked at it yet, what are the odds it's heads? 50-50, right? Because probability does not tell us about the coin. It tells us about our state of ignorance.
