*>The idea about primes as 'minimal systems' resonates with my own

Yes, this is sort of how I'm thinking, but my pregeometric minimal systems

occur

at a level beneath that of particles -- particles are perhaps equivalence

classes

of minimal systems or some such?

*>In the construction of infinite primes this idea comes very concrete

Well Matti, I can't yet follow you into infinity-land, but maybe next month

after I get time to read your stuff ;)
