Wow, that is a fascinating discourse on these apparent spiral 'patterns', and so
well-explained. The various visualizations are top-notch too.

So it turns out that a mathematician from centuries ago has already come up with
a completely rational explanation. There *are* clear patterns to be seen with
the primes-- or any other set of 'related' numbers, so it seems-- but they
result from the visualization technique itself.

That video is a real eye-opener, and quite instructive. Thanks for posting.
