I'm going to paraphrase the video, "e to the power of i multiplied by pi = i squared" "i to the power of 3 + 1 = i to the power of 4 = i to the power of 2 multiplied by i to the power of 2" " = 1 X 1 = 1 " "1st predecessor to the Formula of all Primes f(n)=2n+(n5).i(n+1)+1" "Where n is a prime > 2" Here is some of the video description by the author "The author (Mario d'Exalto) keeps the formula secret because the time is not right yet. The author will leave keys in other messages in the future for those who will understand the meaning." His only other video is UFOs exposed but that could be just a hobby of his, I know it seems most likely that he believes he has cracked the formula but I just wanted to know your thoughts. EDIT: the video is called "New Prime Number Formula Discovered"

Indeed that's the one. I felt uneasy about uploading it because moderators such as your self would have to check to see if it's a safe video to watch. Yeah I know finding a predictable pattern to Prime numbers is pretty much impossible but I am obsessed with it. I think this video is interesting, only the other day I was looking at Euler's Identity for no reason in particular.

Ah so I gather your thoughts skeeter is that it's a kooky idea. Fair enough, just believing you know the answer must feel great!

I'm not going to bother watching the video because I have better things to do. Like watching some paint dry.

I recollect that some religious enthusiast (Joanna Southcott?) announced that she would walk across the Thames as proof that God was with her. At the time on the day when this event was scheduled to happen, she asked whether her followers had faith. When they announced vigorously that they had faith in abundance, she declared that therefore a demonstration would be superfluous.
