COMMENTS

If a(n) = 1, then A126084(A293927(n)) = 0.

For any n > 0, A293927(n) - a(n) + 1 >= 4 (we need to XOR at least 4 consecutive prime numbers in order to obtain 0).

For any n > 0, if a(n) > 1 then A293927(n) - a(n) + 1 is even (we need to XOR an even number of odd prime numbers in order to obtain 0).
