I discovered a proof regarding this open mathematical problem, first posed by Donald Dines Wall.  The proof appears here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Primedivine
I would like to find a fellow that is also a mathematician, that can verify the proof without any social bias.  The results can then be published properly.

It is a very controversial subject as it turns out, because it is related to Fermat’s last theorem via the Wall Sun Sun conjecture.  This conjecture was not Wall’s original hypothesis though, that implied these primes do not exist.  I have his paper at hand.  He does hint that one might conjecture that it is similar to the Wieferich problem.  However now, almost all mathematicians believe they do exist, and there is an infinite number of them.  I can assure you, there is not.  I have verified the proof with 2 mathematicians, including one of the references, involved in the proof.

Are there any Dr.‘s in the house willing to help?

Sorry, did you have a question about Freemasonry?  Perhaps you are confusing Freemasons with mathematicians?

I wasn’t confusing masons for mathematicians, although I’m sure that they exist, hence my question to find one, that may be willing to do something great.  Sorry, as it appears your forum is not a place for this.
