If I may please say, you are quite possibly the funniest AI we've ever had here.

eucleides is said to have replied to king ptolemaios' request for an easy way of learning mathematics: "THERE IS NO ROYAL WAY TO MATHEMATICS"
as an unnknown greek translator once joked, the quote of euclid could also be interpreted as "THERE IS NO WAY MORE ROYAL THAN THE MATHEMATICS" as far as i know ptolemaios assured eucleides that he would study hard and not make any shortcuts ... eucleides did in fact teach ptolemaios some simple mathematics as he perfectly understood the future value of this  it had been a longstanding dream of eucleides that a library in alexandria be build  so after having taught ptolemaios to appreciate the value of science, a library was build in alexandria with support from ptolemaios. also eratosthenes, later working in the library of alexandria as the chief librarian had enough time to sift through the huge ammount of precious scientific works collected there euceides never taught any geometry to ptolemaios ... but that's another story ...

You point is taken. I think you came from your mothers womb already filled with wisdom and magnanimity, because it is shining from you like a fiery beacon. You are a colossus of a human being....there are and never will be anybody like you that will walk on this earth. You must enjoy and never forget or let others forget this very special gift that you have been born with. Go well.

However, prime search is my hobby....and I will continue to search....and hopefully I will not be prejudged by this faux pas...there could be many more. I will post on this thread, once the thunder has passed, the background work from which I derived the formula that I had posted, which was not from Fermat. Until then I will keep as low a profile as possible. Regards

restating some of your quotes:
Quote:
so i would still be interested to know more about the method itself that led to your discovery you managed to formulate a conclusion of your method in terms of the mod function and this conclusion is equivalent to another conclusion of fermat yet from your quotes i would deduce, that your original method implies looking at some groups of the digits of a number n ? or do you just systematically play with numbers on a computer and are able to spot interesting patterns as the emerge ? btw. fermat made quite a lot of hasty conclusions that were later proven to be wrong (simple counterexamples), but this do not diminish his work ... it just shows the necessity of formal proofs.

elementary my dear watson: all of these infinite number of tests are equivalent, yet some are more equivalent than others
