COMMENTS

If for some n, A001414(a(n1)) is a prime p not seen before, then a(n)=p and a(n+1)=2*p. If the lesser of a twin prime pair is a(n), the greater is a(n+2).
The numbers not appearing in the first 10^7 terms are 1, 3, 37957, 37963, 38557, 39301, 40237, 40343, 40351, 40357, ...; it seems that all numbers other than 1 and 3 eventually appear.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 09 2018

EXAMPLE

a(2)=4 because A001414(2)=2 and 4 is the least multiple of 2 not yet seen.
a(3)=8 because A001414(4)=4 and 8 is the least multiple of 4 not seen yet.
