### 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?

Hi LQ;

Ricky is right. Infinity is not a number.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
