Indeed. This is very intriguing. Your curve and JR's Hilbert example make me
wonder if there is some other kind of spiral (or more complex multi-dimensional
shape??) that would show an even clearer visual pattern to the primes. I kind of
sense that there may be something 'deeper' going on here, yet to be discovered.
