 P: n/a 1, 2, 3, 5, 7... PRIME Numbers [ Mathematics / Physics / Engineering ] ________________________________ Definitions What is a PRIME Number ? A PRIME number is a number whose only positive divisors are one and itself. What is a MAGIC SQUARE? A magic square is an arrangement of numbers in a square, such that the numbers in all rows, all columns, and both diagonals sum to the same number. ________________________________ MAGIC SQUARES & PRIME Numbers The secret of PRIME Numbers are embedded within the puzzle known as "MAGIC SQUARES". PRIME Numbers and Magic Squares go hand in hand. PRIME Numbers & The Number '1' PRIME Numbers are the progress of TIME or The Number '1' in the universe. Another definition of "Science" is the comprehension of PRIME Numbers. The Number '1' is like "a seed" and PRIME Numbers is the "tree" that grows or progresses from that seed. The seed and the tree are one and the same. ________________________________ The Comphrehension of the Number '1' IS the study of PRIME Numbers, for the Number '1' is the only number in the universe that is truly "indivisible". Since PRIME Numbers take on the nature of the Number '1', and the Number '1' is the seed of all PRIME Numbers, therefore the Number '1' is PRIME Number. ________________________________ To "divide" a PRIME by "itself" OR by the Number '1', results in a "canceling of itself out" OR the PRIME Number "dissolves into its original state" of "NOTHING" OR .

A PRIME number is a number whose only positive divisors are one and itself. Not quite: Classically, a prime number is defined as a positive integer (1,2,3,4,5,...) that has exactly two divisors among the positive integers. Consequently, 1 is not a prime number since it has only one divisor. What is a MAGIC SQUARE? A magic square is an arrangement of numbers in a square, such that the numbers in all rows, all columns, and both diagonals sum to the same number. That is correct. ________________________________ MAGIC SQUARES & PRIME Numbers The secret of PRIME Numbers are embedded within the puzzle known as "MAGIC SQUARES". The statement presupposes the existence and _uniqueness_ of a secret of prime numbers. At least, the uniqueness presupposition is quite doubtfull. > PRIME Numbers and Magic Squares go hand in hand. PRIME Numbers & The Number '1' PRIME Numbers are the progress of TIME or The Number '1' in the universe. That appears to be either false or meaningless. At least I would want to see a proof of this statement. > Another definition of "Science" is the comprehension of PRIME Numbers. But that definition would not capture the meaning of the word "science". The Number '1' is like "a seed" and PRIME Numbers is the "tree" that grows or progresses from that seed. The seed and the tree are one and the same. No, they are not: neither literally nor metaphorically. E.g., trees are usually much larger than seeds. ________________________________ The Comphrehension of the Number '1' IS the study of PRIME Numbers, for the Number '1' is the only number in the universe that is truly "indivisible". And, as pointed out above, 1 is not even prime. > Since PRIME Numbers take on the nature of the Number '1', and the Number '1' is the seed of all PRIME Numbers, therefore the Number '1' is PRIME Number. No, it is not. The reason that prime numbers are defined so that 1 is not one of them is linguistic convenience: it makes the theorem that every positive integer has a unique prime factor decomposition easier to state precisely. ________________________________ To "divide" a PRIME by "itself" OR by the Number '1', results in a "canceling of itself out" OR the PRIME Number "dissolves into its original state" of "NOTHING" OR . EXAMPLES: 1 / 1 = PI 2 / 1 = PI 2 / 2 = PI 3 / 1 = PI 3 / 3 = PI etc. Random computations that are not even carried out correctly prove nothing. ________________________________ PRIME Numbers & TIME To count 'TIME' is to count the number of 'coincidences' OR same - time - occurrences of The Number '1'. "To count TIME" IS NOT EQUAL TO "measuring TIME" in "seconds", "minutes", "hours", "days", etc. To measure TIME in "seconds", "minutes", etc. is impossible. Doubtful. > THEREFORE "To count TIME" IS to count in (the) PRIME Numbers: 1,2,3,5,7,11,13... Non-sequitur. BTW: all of this is quite off-topic in this group. Do you have a C++ problem?

Have they been erased from some server? Many news-servers perform automated spam removal. Only in the event that someone replies to an automatically removed spam posting, appearing on some news-server that doesn't filter, will you notice it ever was there. Therefore, for those reading this OT follow-up: the fewer that reply to spam messages, the less OT traffic in the news groups. -- A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text. Q: Why is it such a bad thing? A: Top-posting. Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail? Jan 18 '07 #6

No, decent servers filter this kind of crap, that's why it's a mistake to reply to it. -- Ian Collins. Jan 18 '07 #8
