Assume a and b to be the largest known twin primes.

Let x be an integer from 0 to no limit.

Applying the following formula a^2 - b - 6x will inevitably result in an even
number [E], which lies directly between 2 prime numbers, greater than the
original a and b assumption. Finding the value of x is of course the hard part!

Is this why twin primes are inexhaustible?

Examples

a b x [E]

11 13 0 108
17 19 0 270
29 31 0 810

maybe but i'm already lost at the first assumption.

if the twin primes conjecture is proved, the others can be, too,
using the same type of demonstration

I simply made an observation - at no time did I claim the demonstration to be a
proof of anything and merely asked a question. But thank you for the input.

I did not not make any claim
