Primeval numbers

A method for writing numbers using their prime factors instead of digits. Visual design inspired by the Inca record-keeping technology quipu and the alien language in the 2016 movie Arrival.

A fourth symbol for -1 is planned. In addition to negative numbers, this will unlock fractions (-1 as exponent), nth roots (fractional exponents), complex numbers (-1 raised to fractional exponents) and their products.
