We can construct an arbitrarily large sequence of composite numbers.  When putting that beside the notion that a function as simple as x/log x estimates the number of primes less than x arbitrarily close to square root accuracy, things seem strange.

I guess I don’t really understand questions about primes yet. Immensity always overwhelms my imagination.

It’s grown dark at midday.  I can her thunder in the distance.
