 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS 1stSubmergeLengths[=A074473] with initial values belonging to other residue classes modulo 64 are either listed in A075476-A075483 or can be easily determined. For 64k+2s the first sink below initial value is at 2nd iterate; for 64k+4s+1 the first submerge below initial value comes at 4th term of iteration list; finally if initial value is of 64k+4s+3 form or moreover initial value = 64k+r, r = 3, 11, 19, 23, 35, 43, 51, 55, then for all k first sink emerges at the 7th, 9th, 7th, 9th, 7th, 9th, 7th, 9th iterates, respectively.
