Roy already explained it. But perhaps I can reword the explanation a bit so it is perhaps easier to follow.
The lines in question define a set of y values (for natural number x values) which might be prime. The reason they do that is that for numbers divided by 6, there are only 6 possible remainders, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
For input values of q that are Natural numbers:
The line 6q -1 = y (or for Whole numbers 6q+5) generates all Natural y values with reminder 5 when divided by 6,
the line 6q +1 = y (or for Whole numbers 6q+7) generates all Natural y values with remainder 1 when divided by 6.
Natural numbers with remainder 0, 2, and 4 are NOT prime because they are all divisible by 2 (because 6 itself is divisible by 2).
Natural numbers with remainder 3 are NOT prime because they are divisible by 3 (because 6 is itself divisible by 3)
Therefore only numbers divided by 6 that have a remainder of 1 or 5 are possible prime candidates, and thus ALL primes lie on one or the other line.
It is not that complicated.
But it is interesting. There are many, many more properties that can be associated with primes. It is a fascinating field of number theory.

Merenne numbers 2^{P} - 1 [where P is to be a prime number] all lie only in the 6q + 1 sequence.

That paper appears to be garbage. The author has effectively reinvented the sieve of Erastosthenes and applied it to a misunderstanding of the Riemann zeta function.
I stopped skimming it after seeing the author claiming that it was "notable" that the series 6n+1 contains no numbers divisible by 2 or 3.

...except when P=2, where 2^{P} - 1 = 3.
Since all primes > 2 are of the form 2n+1,
2^{P}-1 {mod 6}
= 2^{2n+1}-1 {mod 6}
= 2(2^{2n})-1 {mod 6}
= 2(4^{n})-1 {mod 6}
= 2((3+1)^{n})-1 {mod 6}
= 2(3^{n} + k_{1}.3^{n-1} + k_{2}.3^{n-2} + ... + k_{n-1}.3 + 1) -1 {mod 6}, where k_{x} are the coefficients of the binomial expansion of n
= 2(3.something + 3.something + ... + 3.something + 1) -1 {mod 6}
= 6.something + 6.something + ... + 6.something + 2 -1 {mod 6}
= 1 {mod 6}
