language and arithmetics

March 13th, 2009 by Romeo Anghelache

The fundamental theorem of arithmetics says that every natural number greater than 1 is a unique product of prime numbers.

Numbers are, in fact, words written in a language, and the basic, unambiguous, irreducible, particles of this language are the prime numbers, not the digits, because of the theorem above; this means that factoring a number is equivalent to finding a representation of that number that maximizes its information entropy, or finding its proper time unit as an object.
