Does all this apply to only the base-10 number system or can the circles be transferred to octal, hexidecimal or other base number systems? Also, consider base-24 and see if it works there too.
Do primes correspond to anything such as the golden mean or golden ratio? Just wondering how prime numbers can help humanity better understand ourselves.
Probably just a typo, but should this be Circle 71, Ray1?

Hi man, I like the work you've put into this. I was testing it out however, by trying random numbers to use instead of 24, and found that 8 may be a better number. The reason is that using the differences in primes you can create the entire 8th ray (8,16,24,32), and that it also includes 3.
ie. 24n becomes 8n. plus it works out better for the lower numbers, 3^2 - 1^2 = 8, 5^2 -3^2 = 16, etc. that don't actually work with 24.
These are just my thoughts so far, when I have more time to look at other aspects of the idea I'll post them.
Peace for now

I wonder if your system would help find some of these...

I have been playing around with your idea and just thought I'd point out something I noticed.
Ray '1' and Ray '13', (the same line continuing through the center of the circles) appear to contain ALL the so called "Star numbers". (Both Prime and Non-Prime)
Although, I have only checked up to the 452nd circle (10837)... infinity is a bit too far for me!

This is my first reply, so I want to make it as best as m I can. This post was great for anybody looking to find real truth that can't be argued. I'm not saying this is it, but at least you are looking, and contributing more than almost everybody. I am not a very smart man(not really sure why I looked at a math thread- but i do love math, just not on anybody intelligent's level), but I do love anything that will help me. I hope to hear anything from you in the future. The graph helped me explain primes to my daughtger and myself! I don't know who you are, but you are a great help to anyone looking. Thank you for your insight into things that have an explanation but not many care about the practical implications thereof.... I do. Thanks again.
Oh yeah,, Star and Flag.
