Hello again OP,
do you have anything to offer us of your understanding of prime numbers?

Thanks

Hello!

Prime numbers are just a display of symmetry. I suppose kind of like the mathematical difference between squiggly lines and a square. You can use the square to create useful things like tables, whereas setting your drink on a squiggly would be more amusing.

Fibonacci is also interesting as has its own symmetry that you don't readily see. For example, if you take any fibonacci number and multiply it by "123" the result is a number that has a difference from another fibonacci number of a fibonacci number.

For example, the 26th fibonacci number is 121,393.

Multiply that by 123 to get 14,931,339. Take the 36th fibonacci number (26th+10) and subtract it from 14,931,339 and you get 987, which is the 16th fibonacci number. (or, the 20th place number X 123 - 30th place number = 10th place number)

I won't get into prime numbers here. The squares are "too useful" for those who want to create other things besides pretty tables.

Thanks.
