Apparently the grouping (12*(2^n))-1, that is, a number that is one

less than 12 times a power of two, produces the significant numbers.

The first few numbers in that series were be:

11, 23, 47, 95, 191, 383, 767, 1535, 3071, 6143 ....

From those, the numbers 11, 191, and 383 are all palindromic primes.

Interestingly, the digits of 191 add up to 11, the numerologist's

foundational master number. The number 383 is very interesting to

me since it is the first multi-digit palindromic prime to appear in

the decimal expansion of pi.
