In Unexpected biases in the distribution of consecutive primes, the authors have discovered that prime numbers have decided preferences about the final digits of the primes that immediately follow them. This is being called as 'Prime conspiracy'.

We have known the prime numbers as the generators of integers, rationals, etc. Does this new discovery affect this fact in any way? To be clearer, does this new discovery give us any new information about other branches of number theory?

    $\begingroup$ The endding digits of the natural numbers are equally distributed, so the preferences obviously vanish after the primes have been multplied together. $\endgroup$ – Peter Mar 21 '16 at 21:40
