I am a lowly college freshman, but I have come up with some ideas about the distribution of primes myself.

How do we look at the distribution of primes? If you're thinking on a one dimensional number line like this:

You're probably not going to find a pattern of the distribution, The problem of primes seems like it's not a linear problem.

I'm sure that there are alot of mathematicians more seasoned than me who have heard of the Ulam Spiral, where you start drawing a grid of numbers starting with one in the middle like this:

It gives you diagonal patterns of primes like this:

There are even other similar types of spirals done which give you surprising patterns. What if this idea could be projected somehow in 3 dimensions? It would give us a reallt cool pattern. I still don't think that would be it though, it is still limited and based on an arithmetic approach. I think that it will take something like complex numbers or something nonlinear and non arithmetic to to determine the true distribution. This just gives us a glimpse. It's fun to think about though.

I hope that I am not too terribly misinformed to make myself look foolish
