I just listened to McCanney's March 22 radio show. McCanney claims that
the prime numbers form an infinite closed group with the group operator

5 is not a 'perfect number' as would be computed by McCanney's generator
function. I assume from your wrong example that you have not yet read
McCanney's book.
