The magic of numbers raised to 3, 4 , 5...

Updated on April 7, 2016

The magic of raised number sequences

I feel passion for numbers, someone said that numbers are the language that God uses to "write" the Universe and indeed there are really some cabalistic beauty in how numbers raised to 3, 4, ...n, behave.

We see some interesting facts, for example if we take the sequences that result of raising a series of correlative natural numbers to an odd number (3, 5, 7,...) and we calculate a new sequence with the difference between the results all the numbers of that new sequence are either prime numbers or can only be factorizated by large prime numbers others than 2. I was wondering if using these sequences we could get closer to a formula to generate prime numbers by using this power raising method. Anyone out there could give me some professional feedback

If you have a closer look at the charts included in this article you will see that after repeating the process of getting new sequences out of the differences calculated there is always a bottomline sequence with the same number

  • 6 is the final number for the cubed number multisequence
  • 24 is the final number for the 4 raised number multisequence
  • 120 is the final number for the 5 raised number multisequence
  • 720 is the final number for the 6 raised number multisequence, and
  • 5040 is the final number for that 7 raised multisequence

Can anyone tell me why the last sequence is always a "flat" sequence of even numbers?


Have a look at the final image featured in this article and see how we come out with incredible results after combining all those multisequences ...

I am not a professional Mathematic but I am dreaming of numbers these days and I would appreciate if anyone out there can give me some feedback on this so interesting results. For instance, now I know that if I want to calculate a huge prime number I just need to get a huge number (call it "N"), raise it to a huge odd number (call it "X"), then raise N-1 to X and subtract this resultant number from the first we calculated and bingo!, a huge prime number for you to tell your friends, teacher or colleagues.

Magic in raised numbers

Can the combination of numbers raised to large powers help generating huge prime numbers?

Please comment and help me learn why
