Born to do Math 35 - Metaprimes (Part 1)
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
April 11, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: The number line itself and integers themselves while they appear infinitely precise can be seen as being defined by a bunch of relationships among the various numbers.

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: So what does that mean, affirmations of some things and negations of other things based on information relative to other things?

RR: Well, the number line is the most compact—the set of natural counting numbers is the most compact set of numbers that are defined by their set of ratios to each other. The distribution of primes and etc. There’s a system of metaprimes, I guess, you’d call it. You can make a choice at any point whether the next number should be a prime or a certain kind of composite number.

SDJ: You published something about this in the 90s.

RR: Yea, but it’s the numbers defined by their ratios to each other based on how you answer the question, “What number comes next?” Numbers whose value has not yet been exactly defined.

SDJ: If I may interject to get more precise on what you’re saying, if you take the question and then you provide an answer, would the verbal or the linguistic representation of that be in conditionals or direct statements to provide the proper interpretation of the information there, of the associative landscape?

RR: The way you set it up is: Prime number A. You don’t know the exact value it takes, but the next number in your number line can either be A^2 or B – in the most compact number line it is B.
