## Dobee’s Law of Prime Numbers

Dobee’s Law of Prime Numbers: Add two to the number of whole integers contained in any number, and you get the next prime number.

To get the next prime after ten for example, you count the number of whole integers contained in ten. There are 10 ones, 5 twos, 3 threes, 2 fours, 2 fives, 1 six, 1 seven, 1 eight, 1 nine and 1 ten for a total of 27 whole integers.

To get the next prime number, find the number that contains 29 whole integers. [Hint: It’s 11.]

Note that this requires some new thinking. Mathematicians generally think of an 11 being bigger than a one, but they are really both the same thing, integers of the same size. What makes them different is the number of equal or smaller integers that they can contain.

Note also that a new set of numbers is created, numbers of which the primes are a subset, numbers which may or should be prime themselves, but they don’t exist as rational or even real numbers. For example, to find the next prime greater than 3, we add 2 to the number of integers contained in 3 (3 ones + 1 two +1 three) for a total of 7. But there is no known number that contains 7 integers. Nor are there numbers that contain 12, 18,22, or 25 integers, all of which should be prime by the rule.

Yet the rule seems to be true for every case where there is a real prime number.

Consider now, what if real world particles because of their changeable nature combine in the same manner according to the number of elementary units they contain, and what if there are mathematical gaps  in between?
