I have sometimes thought that the profound mystery which envelops our conceptions relative to prime numbers depends upon the limitations of our faculties in regard to time, which like space may be in essence poly-dimensional and that this and other such sort of truths would become self-evident to a being whose mode of perception is according to “superficially” as opposed to our own limitation to “linearly” extended time.J.J. Sylvester

There is at least one adequate symbolism to represent the usual structure $ \left(\mathbb{N},+,\times\right) $ (for example, the decimal system) capable of generating by itself another adequate one with more arithmetic information than the original one, specifically about primality.
