%C Browkin & Schinzel show that this sequence is infinite.  _Labos Elemer_, Dec 21 1999
%C If the strong Goldbach conjecture (every even number>6 is the sum of at least 2 distinct primes p and q) is true, sequence contains only even values. Since p*qphi(p*q)=p+q1 and then every odd number can be expressed as xphi(x).  _Benoit Cloitre_, Mar 03 2002
%C Heesung Yang (Myerson link, problem 012.17d) asks if this sequence has a positive lower density.  _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Nov 04 2013
