I will be patient.....
You have partioned the integers according to their congruence class mod 6, skipping the class equal to 5 mod 6. Now what? Do you actually have a theorem to state? Trivially, the class that is 1 mod 6 is closed under multiplication and has no member divisible by 2 or 3. Where do you go from here?

I'm starting to get worried about Dr. Silverman ... first he replies politely and with saintlike patience to that insane Raman666 guy that's been stinking up the Factoring forum, now this ... Bob, whatever magic "herb" you recently discovered in your backyard garden  would you consider selling some?

It might be the 'magic' herb Brahmi ( Bacopa monnieri ) well known to the Indian gurus. Nature gives the hint as it is shaped like the brain and also has convolutions resembling it. Ever wondered how the Chinese discovered Ging Seng ? Well the same way thru Nature. Quote:

Dear Richard, Thanks for your comments. Let me start with your final suggestion. I don't mind to change terminology from "possible primes" to "Munkner integers". These expressions cover in fact the same integers. To use "numbers" instead of "integers" makes no difference, but points to the fact (already mentioned in my publicationn from 1986) that all "Munkner integers" can be "replaced" by their natural number M from  infinity to + infinity:(7),(6),(5),(4),(3),(2),(1), 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 , corresponding to (41),(35),(29),(23),(17),(11),(5), 1,7,13,19,25,31, Now I think that you agree to my statement that ((6*M)+1) will never be divisible by 2 or 3, as (6*M) is divisible by 2 and 3. Odd integers with modules 0,III or VI (modulo 9) will never be primes (21 has module III, 51 has module VI, 117 has module 0). The rest of the odd integers with modules II,V,VIII or I,IV,VII will be primes or prime products (i.e. "Munkner integers"). Your remark "all primes > 3 are Munkner numbers" should read "all primes > 3 and all prime products of primes > 3 are Munkner integers". But you forget the integer 1, which is a product (a square) of ((6*0)+1) and ((6*0)+1). You may ask me about the advantages of the terminology "Munkner integers". They will be evident when I describe the dissection (i.e. the factorization) of Munkner integers and in addition the dissection of the "Mersenne integers" which constitute a few primes and a vast majority of prime products.

I applaud the change in nomenclature. It greatly reduces opportunities for confusion. Like you, I'm still waiting for something intelligent to be said. Paul
