COMMENTS

The conjecture in A259487 essentially says that {a(m)/a(n): m,n = 1,2,3,...} coincides with the set of all positive rational numbers. This implies that the current sequence has infinitely many terms.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2 since prime(2)+2 = 5 and prime(prime(2))+2 = prime(3)+2 = 7 are both prime, but prime(1)+2 = 4 is composite.

a(2) = 3 since prime(3)+2 = 7 and prime(prime(3))+2 = prime(7)+2 = 19 are both prime.
