Two definitive methods for revealing all the PRIME numbers
~A MathspeedST Supplement~


Gather the NO-PRIMES


Remains are the PRIMES

How can a deceptively simple matrix grid square give us:

1. Inverse Square Law (ISL);

2. Pythagorean Triples (PTs);

3. Primes (P) vs. No-Primes (NP)?

    The BIM (BBS-ISL Matrix) does that!

    What started as the invention/discovery of the ISL matrix — a simple grid of natural Whole Integer Numbers (WIN) — has led to an unforeseen connection between the ISL — PPTs — PRIMES.

    The BIM is an infinitely expanding matrix where every cell within the grid is uniquely occupied by a WIN that is itself simply the difference between its horizontal and vertical intersection values of the main, Prime Diagonal (PD).

    The PD mirror divides the grid into symmetrical halves. The PD is key as it consists solely of the squares of the Axis numbers (1,2,3,...) as A2 = PD.

    In fact, drop vertically down from any PD squared number until you intersect with its squared complement and you will have landed on a Primitive Pythagorean Triple (PPT) row, with a2 + b2 culminating with c2 where that row now intercepts horizontally with the PD, giving a2 + b2 = c2.

    Repeating this will identify all the PPTs.

    But wait! Now divide every Inner Grid (IG) cell value by 24 and you will generate a criss-crossing diamond grid overlay pattern with almost magical properties!

    The BIM÷24 grid will break out the overall matrix into two (2) types of ODD Axis rows:

• those ÷3 that are never PPT, never PRIMES = Non-Active Rows (NON-AR);

• those NOT ÷3 that PPTs and PRIMES are                

 exclusively found on = Active Row Sets (ARS) or Active Rows (AR) for short. NOTE: a necessary, but not sufficient, condition as some AR have neither.

    The reason the ARS is plural is because there are two ODD Axis rows — AR — in each ARS. 

    These two (2) ODD Axis AR alternate with an ODD Axis NON-AR giving the (NON-AR)—AR—AR—(NON-AR)—AR—AR—(NON-AR)... pattern. Basically for every ÷3 row, one has two NOT ÷3 rows.

    This becomes important as the ÷3/NOT ÷3 pattern is key to identifying the Number Pattern Sequence (NPS) of ALL the NO-PRIMES (NP) and that NPS ultimately defines the elusive pattern of the PRIMES as: ALL ODD WIN (≧3) - NP = P.

    This has culminated — at least at this point in this exciting mathematical journey — in two (2) simple methods for generating ALL the NP:

1. Algebraic: *NP = 6yx ± y  let y = ODD WIN, x = 1,2,3,... (*one must add the exponentials of 3, 3x, if one does not first eliminate all ÷3 WIN).

2. Algebraic Geometry: where it all began on the BIM by subtracting (eliminating) ALL the **NP that are shape-located directly on the BIM, one can reveal the remaining PRIMES (**here, one must include the ODD Axis2 values).

    Both methods nicely dovetail directly on the BIM.

    *NP = 6yx ± y is the simple, algebraic equation that is derived from and summarizes the visualization approach we see directly on the BIM. This dovetailing of the pure algebra approach with the pure geometry of the BIM gives us the algebraic geometry method. Visual thinkers like to "see" the algebra and algebraic geometry at work — play!

    The regular BIM by itself contains all the same information for either method. The NPS of the algebraic and algebraic geometry methods pops out more readily when we do a minor alteration to the BIM — squaring the Axis numbers. Since we are only working with the ODD numbers, this means simply squaring the ODD Axis numbers. And to completely correlate the *NP = 6yx ± y  algebraic method to the BIM, we need to manually add the exponentials of 3 (3x) to the listings (including those in spreadsheet table format) of the NP numbers generated by the equation. That's it!

    Looking at the BIM's lower symmetry — after eliminating all the EVEN numbers and squaring the ODD Axis numbers — a clear NPS of ALL the NP is revealed. A L-shaped-double-wide-diagonal-path pattern that corresponds systematically, step-by-step with algebraic solutions of *NP = 6yx ± y and the pre geometry-shape visualization of the algebraic geometry method. Both methods give the same identical NP results because each is simply the same logical process only coming at it from two different approaches.

    Now the really interesting part of all of this is all the NPS revealed in the exposure of ALL of the NP is itself simply the converse — inverse — of ALL the PRIMES.

    One — take your pick — is simply the negative space of the other. If we call the PRIMES the positive space, then their NPS is revealed by the negative space NO-PRIMES! 

    When visualizing the PRIMES vs. NO-PRIMES on the BIM, it is much easier to "see" the NP as the positive space with all the NPS and the PRIMES as the remaining negative space — a space completely defined by that of its opposite (inverse) NO-PRIMES space as: NP + P = ALL ODD numbers (≧3).

    Yes, a deceptively simple matrix grid square (BIM) can give us:

1. Inverse Square Law (ISL);

2. Pythagorean Triples (PTs);

3. Primes (P) vs. No-Primes (NP)!
