EXAMPLE

The number 1 cannot appear in the sequence, since the sum of the first n=1 terms equals a(1) which is necessarily in the sequence. (Similarly for 0.)
So the smallest number that can be in the sequence is a(1)=2.
There is no (further) restriction on a(2) since 2+a(2) will always be a number not in the set {2, a(2)}. Thus the next larger number, a(2)=3, is also in this list.
The number a(3)=4 is also allowed, but because of a(1)=2 the number a(1)+a(2)=5 is excluded, as well as the number a(1)+a(2)+a(3)=2+3+4=9 because of a(2)=3.
