COMMENTS

For any pair of contiguous terms, one of the terms uses fewer digits than the other. This term is called the mask. Put the mask on the other term, starting from the left. What is not covered by the mask forms a prime number.
The sequence starts with a(1) = 1 and is always extended with the smallest integer not yet present that doesn't lead to a contradiction.
This sequence is a permutation of the integers > 0, as all integers will appear at some point, either as mask or masked.

EXAMPLE

In the pair (1,12), 1 is the mask; 2 emerges and is prime;
In the pair (12,2), 2 is the mask; 2 emerges and is prime;
In the pair (2,13), 2 is the mask; 3 emerges and is prime;
In the pair (13,3), 3 is the mask; 3 emerges and is prime;
...
In the pair (11525,2018), 2018 is the mask; 5 emerges and is prime;
etc.
