Binary patterns in the primes

Don’t know why but after following several tweets under the #bbccode hashtag I was thinking about the patterns in the primes and decided to ask myself what patterns there might be in a binary listing of the primes.  Prime numbers (and Fermat’s last theorem) always seem to pop into my head at random moments – this time on Wimbledon station.

 

I mentioned my thoughts “@SofARMaths wondering if you write primes in binary one beneath the other what pattern do you get.” And received a reply from @bbccode “@SofARMaths great idea! give it a try and send us a picture!”  Well here is the pattern for the first 97 primes. (click here)

 

Let me know what you make of it...
