Ye who've been BSing for years
But for me, a young 'un it's all pretty new
But I'm not reduced yet to tears!

And reaching beyond, out of view,
Are Hundreds of Primes, and they know who they are
And Eiseley is coming for you!

And here is one now, Three Eight Four Oh Seven!
I just have to learn when to pounce
For if I guess wrong, it's like bread without leaven
Just slouching without without any bounce.

Does it count if I landed on the right Prime
But called it by some other name?
I'll just have to wait and be right the next time
And bury my head, now, in shame.

There nothing that represents the MOAB magic mystique
Like double-contrarian double-negation speak
Plucking the parallel streams of time
And citing an even number as Prime
Or not the Prime (from one before)--
Like opening two sides of the same door
And oscillating through the powers of N
Until they go around some distant bend
And reappear in present time
Leaving us all fired up and Primed.

Is zero prime or not?

A prime is defined as a number only evenly divisible by itself and one, but you can't divide ANYTHING into zero (e.g., 0/1) or anything BY zero (e.g., 0/0).

Or does this make it the Schoedinger's cat of numbers, both prime and not-prime. And if this is the case, can it be warded off by garlic?

A number to the Zeroeth is just one,
ANd to the first, only itself.
To Zero then, the two powers are but one,
And one, the opposite of zero's very self.
Zero to the Oneth, or to the zero-eth
Alike contrive to show the Zeroness
Behind all frames and powers among forms
Whence cometh one, and all it does abet,
And the end of lies, when liars do confess.

This is what Dr. Math says:

One is neither a prime nor a composite number. A prime number is one
with exactly two positive divisors, itself and one. One has only one
positive divisor. It cannot be written as a product of two factors,
neither of which is itself, so one is also not composite. It falls
in a class of numbers called units. These are the numbers whose
reciprocals are also whole numbers.

Zero is not a prime or a composite number either. Zero has an infinite number of divisors (any nonzero whole number divides zero). It cannot be written as a product of two factors, neither of which is itself, so zero is also not composite. It falls in a class of numbers called zero-divisors. These are numbers such that, when multiplied by some nonzero number, the product is zero.

The most important fact of multiplication of integers is called the
Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic. It says that every whole number
greater than one can be written *uniquely* (except for their order) as
the product of prime numbers. This is so important that we tailor our
idea of what a prime number is to make it true. If 1 were a prime
number, this would be false, since, for example,

   7 = 1*7 = 1*1*7 = 1*1*1*7 = ...,

and the uniqueness would fail.

DR Math writes very wisely
To enlighten MOAB's Eiseley
On the numbers which are Prime
'THough the names of them don't rhyme.
Still the paradox of powers
Lingers through his lecture;s hours
One to zero? Naught to one?
Gee, but mathematic's fun.

PENGUINS IMPLICATED IN GLOBAL WARMING
Murdo Station Daily, Antarctica

A team of hydro-geologists from the Netherlands published a short monograh this morning with their preliminary results of 5 years intensive study on penguins and their effects on the climate of Antarctica.

"There is no doubt" one scientist was quoted, "the presence of penguin breeding flocks raises the local temperatures significantly". The team has connected the presence of penguins with elevated local temperatures, increase in ice shelf calving; increased absorbtion of incoming solor radiation (due to staining of the ice with shed feathers and guano) as well as the body heat of brooding males.

This is the next-to-last trip for this particular jaw-bone amendment. Three weeks from now, LO!! A new grinder. It's been a long haul, because the good Dr Estrella, whom I highly recommend, is being very careful to make sure each step is thoroughly right before proceeding, but the miles of hiking from the border parking lot has been good for my upper leg strength...
