Visualize all prime numbers along the finite string from 1 to 10.
10 is the largest number in this respect it is infinite.
1 is the first and only other number we start counting with.
like a cell.
3 is like 3 big round circles sitting in a triangle.
4 is like four big round circles in the shape of a square.
5 is like 5 big round circles with
2 00 1 a
4 0000 2 b
6 000000 3 c =a+b
8 00000000 4 d =a+c d=2b
10 0000000000 5 e=5a e=ad e=a+2b e=a+d
e=b+c
12 000000000000 6 f=6a f=4a+b f=b+d f=3b
f=4c
14 00000000000000 7 [do the rest]
16 0000000000000000 8
18 000000000000000000 9
20 00000000000000000000 10
