### Prime number distribution, another attempt.

So I make a polygon with the radius 1 to the middle of a side, the radius s to a corner and the outer side T. if infinity is a prime number, then naturally p*T  --> 2pi

Can one derive all primes p from this, plainly?

I see clearly now, the universe have the black dots, Thus I am on my way of inventing this remedy...

What is p?  What does it mean for infinity to be a prime number?

"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

Hi LQ;

Ricky is right. Infinity is not a number.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
