Hi guy's .. What advice would you give to somebody that actually "finds" a major pattern in the primes? .. hypothetical question! thanks.

What do the quotes around "finds" mean? Do you have a proof? A guess? A computer program? Can you determine the 10000th prime without calculating the earlier ones? If you have something original you can publish it. If you provide more info here people will likely find the flaw. Nobody will steal your work. The server logs along with your handle will establish your priority.

I've been sitting on this for almost 8 years. Naturally being a systems developer I've had the time to sit and test this structure into number as far as 10^26 without a single flaw being detected on many of the ribs of the structure.. basically I have an infinite amount of infinite lines that sit between the primes. I can use this to instantly tell if a number is composite if it sits on one of these lines so I know instantly that its not prime... this in itself is very useful however its by far the least interesting fact about the structure.. I also believe it explains a few other things such as why the distribution of the primes is not exactly as it should be.. it also 100% explains Ulam's Spiral Over the years I've asked countless universities and professionals to look at my findings never get even a single reply.. Its infuriating.. I guess they think I'm a crank.. G

Why do my replies have to be checked by the moderator?

So your advice is to just get it out there any means possible? heres something I just tried a few mins ago.. using some of the simple formulas I've put together to harvest primes from the prime partitions.. 355555377777799 35555553777777799 3555555555555537777777777777799 35555555555555555555555555555555555537777777777777 7777777777777777777777799 Is that interesting or what? I should check for more just like it Last edited by houston; September 22nd, 2017 at 06:34 PM.

What is MinePrime()? Can you verbalize what you're seeing? I am not able to figure out what you're saying. What pattern have you found in the prime numbers? What are the prime partitions? And what is their relevance to your idea? It would be helpful if you can describe your context and terminology.

MinePrime() is just a function I created to extract primes from a prime partition. sorry for the bad grammar.. I'm very dyslexic lol Last edited by houston; September 22nd, 2017 at 06:47 PM.

More primes on the line 35555555555555555555555555555555555537777777777777 7777777777777777777777799  35555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555 55555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555 55377777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777 77777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777 7777799  this is two easy ;p Last edited by houston; September 22nd, 2017 at 07:19 PM.
