Proof Claimed for Deep Connection between Prime Numbers

Mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki of Kyoto University in Japan has released a 500-page proof of the abc conjecture, which proposes a relationship between whole numbers — a ‘Diophantine’ problem.
The Ulam Spiral or Prime spiral shown really has nothing whatsoever to do with ABC Conjecture yet every article I’ve seen on Mochizuki has the damn thing in there because his theorem is so far outside of the box, no one is intelligent enough to understand it or dispute it at this point regardless of how simple the concept seems so in order for publications to get anyone to even skim notes on his finding they keep throwing in prime spiral art to flash the page up.
Even the math community needs spin doctors apparently.
