A233399 A "turtle transform" of the primes p=A000040: coordinates (x,y)=(a(2n),a(2n+1)) of a walk on the complex plane, where at step n the cursor turns by arg(i^p(n)), then moves p(n) units ahead. 5

EXAMPLE
The cursor starts for n=0 at the origin (a(0)=a(1)=0), facing East (= direction of the x-axis). At step 1, prime(1)=2 leads to a turn left by 2*90 degrees (now facing West), then a step of two units into the new direction, to x+iy = -2, thus a(2)=-2, a(3)=0. Prime(2)=3 leads to a turn left by 3*90 degrees, now facing North, and a step of 3 units in that direction, to x+iy = -2+3i, therefore a(4)=-2, a(5)=3.
