Proof of infinity of primes by contradiction:=
Suppose there is a finite number of primes p, where p is the set
of all primes up to p[k]. Now multiply all the elements of p
together. You now have a number that is a product of primes, add 1
to this number, and you have a new prime, so my assumption is
bogus and there are an infinite number of primes.
