      If you are reading this you know that I am looking for established math references to support the Pappy Craylar method.
      One observation: a differentiation of the curve between zero and one may have surprising results.
      I claimed the graph was an inverted normal distribution. But there is “an irregular logarithmic graph called the Tracy-Widom distribution that explains Prime number distribution.
      Again could be nothing but I am searching for anything that would credibility to the PC method.

      I am just now learning about now learning about how the universe formed, like about gold and what not and dudes and dudeets. Its fucking crazy, there are elements in me from a fucking star explosion that occured billions of billions of years ago. I tell ya, if you learn science from the right source it feels like everything just opens up! Like the universe becomes more and more knowable. Before I had to be on medication to see this amount of beauty. This is epic!

      "You are an observer and describer of a system. Reasoning comes from the previous observations of a given system, period. You can make assumptions about the system, but those assumptions are not truths. Your reasoning is not some "golden apple" that defines truth. It is a guidance towards what truth may be associative to. You cannot tell an apple to fall from a tree, it either does or it does not and whatever means or methodologies or processes in which it does so is not within your control as a truthful determiner. At that point your no longer a scientist but an engineer."
      This is a quote I came up with in which I attempt to understand and convey some common pitfalls of some poorly reasoned arguments. If it does not seem correct please correct and I will improve upon it using suggestions.
