COMMENTS

Next term is too large to include.

Sum_{n>0} 1/a(n) = 0.1666694223985890... or about 1/6. This is evident since 1/3! =0.166666666666.. 1/9! =0.0000027557319223985.. 1/27!=0.00000000000000000000000000091836898637955461.. for example shows that succeeding terms have little influence on the first term 1/6. A000722 has the same property of about 1/2 but it is not evident since in 1/2! + 1/4! + 1/8! 1/4! and 1/8! have an immediate effect on the first term 1/2. So the limit of sum(1/(x^n)!) -> 1/x! as x,n -> oo
