Math is the only science that does not need to be based on reality. The other sciences, the natural sciences, do need to be based on reality.

Hello again OP,

do you have anything to offer us of your understanding of prime numbers?

Thanks

728812, do you think that there is someting special to understand of prime numbers?

Retorical question, of course; if you didn't think so, you wouldn't have formulated such a question.

Why don't you share what YOU think on the matter?

OP, I'm far from sure that "Math" can be labeled a "science", unless you are prepared to do the same for phylosophy, for example.

They are both "foundations" for science, which is quite different.

Have you experienced Jnani Yoga, Zen Buddhism and similar disciplines, OP?

Quoting: **Anonymous Coward 762124**I do think that there is something special in prime numbers, although my thoughts on it are incomplete and might not sound coherent to others, however I will try.

As unlikely as it may sound, the OP's answer was along the lines of my own work. Symmetry of numbers goes a lot deeper than one might at first imagine, on exploration, numbers and "components" of numbers exhibit symmetry of different types, not just reflection symmetry. The number nine is important in this concept, and the multiples of nine, e.g. 36. 36 would "interact" with another number creating symmetry at a different scale to that of 9. Fibonacci is manifest in the numbers in extraordinary ways and while it is true that the "mechanism" is simple the manifestation of the Fibonacci patterns is very, very deep, a kind of attractor, so to speak. I am over time, through effort "internalising" the Fibonacci numbers and their patterns.

I asked of the OP's perspective, so that I my experience my own ideas in relation to his.
