Elaborated. Sep 1 comment 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, 21,… @JoshuaTaylor: That's the best. Sep 1 comment 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, 21,… Why not flip it around? $\{n | n=4k-3 \; \forall k \in \mathbb{N}\}$. I think this is more straightforward. Or a little more simply, $\{n | n=4k-3, \; k \in \mathbb{N}\}$.

However, I see this as one of those things that is intuitively true and simple, which also holds up under deeper analysis.

Finally solved it! I contest your claim that it is "an easy solution"! Took me several hours. But I did it! So, again, thank you very much for your input. Turned out to be just what I needed. :) Aug 8 comment On the hyperboloid model, if the point $\mathbf{v}$ gets translated to the origin, then where does the point $\mathbf{x}$ go? Had a key insight: $M\left[ \begin{array}{c}1\\0\\0\end{array} \right] = -\vec{v}$ and I've very nearly got the solution. Just need to find a bug or two. Aug 8 comment On the hyperboloid model, if the point $\mathbf{v}$ gets translated to the origin, then where does the point $\mathbf{x}$ go? After working on this for a couple hours, I challenge you to find a complete solution. Aug 7 comment On the hyperboloid model, if the point $\mathbf{v}$ gets translated to the origin, then where does the point $\mathbf{x}$ go? I thought about it more, and I realized that if I can get the last three equations to have the same three variables each, then that immediately leads to the full solution. Which is slightly less daunting than substitutions all the way down. Thanks for your answer! It's really helped me actually tackle my problem. :)
