In this paper I make the following conjecture: For any pair of twin primes [p, p + 2], p > 5, there exist a prime q, 5 < q < p, such that the number n obtained concatenating (from the left to the right) q with p + 2, then with p, then again with q is prime. Example: for [p, p + 2] = [18408287, 18408289] there exist q = 37 such that n = 37184082891840828737 is prime. Note that the least values of q that satisfy this conjecture for twenty consecutive pairs of twins with 8 digits are 19, 7, 19, 11, 23, 23, 47, 7, 47, 17, 13, 17, 17, 37, 83, 19, 13, 13, 59 and 97 (all twenty primes lower than 100!), the corresponding primes n obtained having 20 digits! This method appears to be a good way to obtain big primes with a high degree of ease and certainty.
