primes from factorials and the previously found twin primes. Other than a
finite number of twin primes as seeds and the ones previously generated by
your procedure, your procedure doesn't know any other twin primes. The
procedure has to bootstrap itself and keep going forever. IIRC, he showed
that 191 and 193 can't be generated that way, so you can't use them for 12!.
