Prime philosophy

I am currently reading The curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon. Here is a quote from the book (will leave a detail post on the book for later):

I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all you life thinking about them.

I agree.

Iyer the Great said...

Yes.. certainly. I think this hit the spot in why life and prime numbers have a certain mystique around them.
