Thank you.
Asked because an odd perfect number and infinitely mersenne primes implies
4-perfect numbers are infinite (and a lot of other 2k-perfect numbers) -
take the product of the OPN and coprime to it EPN.
On the other hand 4-perfect being finite and infinitely mersenne primes
implies no OPN.
What is the reason to believe all 4-perfect are discovered (even if they
are finite)?
