It's just as shocking that the so called "experts" working on the manuscript are handling it without gloves. Grease, sweat and acids are being transferred everytime they touch a piece.

Doesn't that drawing at 36:46 look like the drawing from the Prime Number video, about the formula for the stars in a spiral arm galaxy thingie

Good catch, Gerry. It`s called the Spiral of Archimedes or logarithmic spiral, and it`s exactly what was used to describe the percentage of prime numbers in a given range starting at zero. The function r = ln(x), where r is the radius, and x is the angle (I`d use theta, but I can`t post Greek characters here) describes many natural structures from sea shells to galaxies.
