COMMENTS

We use N_b to denote "N read in base b". Similar to A121263, but now we write the numerals in the stack in binary:

......10....10.....10......10........etc.

..............11.....11......11..........

.......................100.....100.......

..................................101....

The next two terms have about 144 and 450 digits respectively.

A "dungeon" of numbers.
