So not only do you claim to have a proof of the Goldbach conjecture (which of course was nonsense), but also you are unfamiliar with the concept of the Gaussian integers and Gaussian primes.

If any number can be expressed as a product of complex conjugates, then how would you express 3, 7, or 11 as one?
