      Hi,

      I just joined this group.

      Veiwpoint:

      Prime numbers are just their own set of numbers. P(subscript)(n+1) =
      Pn + 1. It's just a notational issue.
      Integers are an extension of primes in the same way that
      rationals are an extension of integers.

      Normal representation
      Integers
      1 2 3 4 5 6 7
      Primes
      2 3 5 7 ....

      Alternate representational system
      Primes
      1 2 3 4 5 6 7
      Integers
      1 2 3 3.5 4 5 5.5 6 7 ...


      What does 2 * 2 mean in an abstract sense ?
