Please link the direct article instead of summaries from WND. They're fine for their own articles.

Link to the actual article, not the clickbait garbage summary

Semi old news but different view pretending non platonic solids can be of aid.

Old news I say? yes :

For example , in our normal BASE 10 numerology, for the first several million, for example, prime numbers ending in 1 were followed by another prime ending in 1 just 18.5 percent of the time. Primes ending in a 3 or a 7 were followed by a 1, 30 percent of the time and primes ending in 9 were followed by a 1, 22 percent of the time. These numbers show that the distribution of the final digit of prime numbers is CLEARLY NOT RANDOM. There is of course a pattern as of paper from 2016 :

Hey, OP, link to the original research? Nobody at World Nut Daily knows jack shit about pure Mathematics.

You might as well send over Cletus the Slack Jawed Yokel to tell me about this new fangled thing called quantum physics.

"You see there's this cat, and it's in a box, but it's not really in the box, so there's a 50/50 chance you can put it in a stew and eat it."

This is what you bring us OP? Really? Shame on you.

OP thanks for the article link, it included the location of the paper (a math paper) but without a doi, so still ok though.

The study was published Sept. 5 in the Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment.

I wonder what the significance is of the pattern and how can it be applied for something useful? If nothing else still really cool that they discovered that.

Perhaps new materials can be developed that have the same crystal structure as that mapped out by primes.

Might be useful to crack encryption more easily?

[–] ShinyVoater 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

The problem there is one of factorization, so I'm not too sure it will help much. However, it should make it easier to discover even larger primes to work with, so encryption may become more secure as a result.
