Re the statement There's no such thing as random, so the primes you generate aren't "really" random and, therefore, neither would the numbers that this scheme generates. But, hopefully -- and this is where my knowledge falls short -- this scheme hides the order better then currently existing statistical techniques.

I will agree that methods we have today generate only pseudo-random numbers. However, I'd suspect that there must be a way to generate truly random numbers based on the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

Thoughts anyone?
