A New Structured Look At Prime Numbers

"In the beginning were primes." All numbers are considered prime and the notion of exterminating composites does not yet exist, including Eratosthenes' sieve and Maxwell's demon. The number "1", indicated "(1)", is no longer considered prime, and rightly so, being the point of departure of the multiplicative system.

Each prime will eventually, in turn, produce its own composites which will exterminate the corresponding primes, thus reducing the density of their population. However, in each liberation, the certification of prime-hood will be terminated by the square of the next prime. All the following primes will be present after each liberation but they will be mingled with exterminating composites, waiting to be certified by a following liberation.
