Attempted Work on a “Fractal” Method to Find Prime Numbers

Primes before 121

Primes before 121

I was inspired by some random thoughts for a different approach towards finding prime numbers, which was originally brought on by my work with theĀ Sieve of Eratosthenes. I had considered what I was calling a Fractal based method of figuring out primes – finding a recurring or repeating pattern in a small dataset that may be applicable to the greater whole. In thought it seemed magical and then as I was working through it in my head, the magic quickly unraveled, but I thought I would give it a try and see what happens.
