Re: new Conjecture Primes the sum or subtraction of two perfect squares

Alright, let me begin making lists:

1+4 =5 and we have 4-1=3

4+9=13 and we have 9-4=5

25+4=29 and we have 16-9=7

25+16=41 and we have 36-25=11

49+4=53 and we have 49-36=13

So it looks like we get about as many additions to make primes as subtraction.

Now I wonder if the Pythagorean theorem has some role in this conjecture because as we notice the square roots of perfect squares:

5+2=7 from sqrt25+sqrt4

A proof of the Conjecture appears to be independent of the proof of Goldbach.
