COMMENTS

Alternate construction: For n=1,2,... write all strings of length n using the first n symbols of an alphabet (a; aa,ab,ba,bb; aaa,aab,aac, aba,...), then code / interpret them as "positional" notation of exponents (a=0, b=1, ...) of primes (last digit = least prime), e.g.: bac => [1,0,2] => 5^1 3^0 2^2.
Obviously every natural numbers appears infinitely often (even after any other natural number) in this sequence. Thus any sequence of positive terms is a subsequence of this one.
A178484 is a more condensed version of this sequence.

EXAMPLE

The sequence begins: a(1)=2^0; a(2)=2^0 3^0, a(3)=2^1 3^0, a(4)=2^0 3^1, a(5)=2^1 3^1;
a(6,...)=2^0 3^0 5^0, 2^1 3^0 5^0, 2^2 3^0 5^0,
