Compared to most of the people who frequent this place I suppose I am not very smart, but I do have a solid basic and somewhat intuitive understanding of mathematics.
Now prime numbers have always intrigued me, and I know for a fact that prime number must have a pattern. It is an unavoidable fact. I only wish I knew enough of higher mathematics in order to figure it out on my own and prove it once and for all. I dont though, so all I can do is state what I know and hope that someone will be kind and maybe give me more info or even one day solve the problem that has been driving my crazy for years and apparently so many other true mathematicians for long time. What is the pattern?
Here is what I know: 1- Prime numbers are a fact a simple reality. 2- Because they always appear in the same places no matter what system you use to count them i.g. base 2 base 3 base... well any base don't matter it is all the same in the end. They must have a real pattern. So What is the pattern? And more to the point, Why do so many people seem to think that they are random?
