comment Logical consequence of Euclid's theorem
@AlecosPapadopoulos I actually did think in a similar manner. Intuitively, if there is an endless supply of prime numbers, then one can always find a prime number which cannot be compressed and written given all the particles in the universe. Am I off? So a better question would have been: is there a Kolmogorov complexity of prime numbers?
