 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The first two consecutive identical gaps are 12, 12 between A005384(6..8) = (29, 41, 53). The first three, four and five identical gaps in a row are equal to 30, 150 and 420, respectively, and occur after A005384(85) = 3299, A005384(29952) = 4866623, and A005384(32361449747) = 22081407211439.
