The Liberation Of Primes

This chapter is meant to be a new, layman's look at Prime Numbers, presented in the allegory of a series of denunciations made by newly-liberated slaves against their comrades, who not only patiently await their liberation but never know if they will be exterminated in the meantime.

This presentation will have evident similarities with the development of the physical universe. It will take place in time, evolving gradually from a uniform beginning, with only hydrogen, to an almost infinitely complex and seemingly chaotic state.

In such an exclusively multiplicative context,
how could the inert "1"
be seriously considered as prime candidate?
