"why RSA has already been factored or why 2 is one of the factors of the RSA

1 Introduction
Factoring is a major problem in crytography. Factoring is seen as an
extremely complex
problem. This paper is about why all that work is a waste because factoring
is impractical
since it lacks veri cation. The objective of the paper is to highlight the
fact that the
whole problem lacks veri cation, and therefore lets you conclude 2 is one of
the factors
of RSA numbers because it lacks veri cation.
1.1 Proof
Guess a number. It is the factor because it lacks veri cation and for the
reasons. There are many things to notice. Most people cannot type. Most
make errors while typing. Most programs dont compile the rst time. Most
do not compile ther rst time. Compilers have bugs in them. There is a
history of buggy
compilers being built on top of buggy compilers, which were once again built
on buggy
compilers. Hardware is also
aky. For many years since the 40s, computers were kindof
aky and did not work correctly. Modern computers are built on top of the
logic built
by these buggy computers. So, the list goes on. The whole problem lacks
veri cation.
There is no way to correctly know if anything really works. Therefore, it is
to conclude that he given number is a factor and just cannot be absolutely
veri ed.
Suppose this number was 2, problem solved. All RSA numbers have been
factored by 2."

Sorry, but this is simply nonsense.

It is also uninteresting.

The only interesting thing I observed in or about it is that when I
copy/pasted the PDF
into OE, all occurrences of "fi" were changed into a blob and "fl" was
broken entirely.
I guess this is to do with Adobe character "kerning". I will look into

I'm not being rude, I hope, but giving you the reality will save your own
