    you could "peer review" my write-up,

    if I ever get it done, lol


    I just discovered the fractal structure of the Non-twin objects, a few weeks ago,

    which has be totally rethinking/rewriting my proof.


    shantysue, I hope "your solution" is more practical than mine,
    which is largely just a mental exercise, across the ages.


    I started with this "brain teaser" many years ago:

    Starting with 5, why is the sum of each set of Twin Primes,

    always divisible by 12?

    The structural reasons for this are rather astounding ...
    when you dig down into it.

    Primes are far from random throws of the dice.

      My love of math has far less to do with the obvious than it does with . . . well, what you said. The power of understanding math is at the root of why I also love tau and many many many other subjects normally not discussed, due to lack of interest. Maybe we can change that.

      Having said all that, back to basics:

      equations are breathtakingly beautiful.

          However the music is not as beautiful, to my mind. The circular dimension is what is particularly intriguing to me.

          It holds the answers to what is ailing us. So far, no one has been able to convince me otherwise.

          Thanks for the video. Don't you just love the internet? I often wonder much about it.

            back when I was in school,

            if so,

            I'd be a geenious by now

            -- a sheer geenious, I tell ya.


            no seriously,

            it really would have cut down on my many

            days and night, spent in the Library,

            trying to fathom the knowledge stored there.
