COMMENTS

This is a "lossless" base10 sequentialsmallestprime percolation of a Champernownesubstrate. The "lossy" version is A162324. The substrate percolates into identical terms 4115 for both lossless and lossy versions. Terms 117153 and 155218 of the lossless version correspond to terms 119155 and 158221, respectively, of the lossy version. No other correspondences are known because of the subsequent interjection of very large primes. (For the purposes of this analysis, large probable primes have been treated as actual primes.)

EXAMPLE

1 is not prime, 12 is not prime, 123 is not prime, 1234 is not prime, 12345 is not prime, etc. 1234567891 is prime but has to be rejected because the next term would begin with "0". The first one which works (thus the smallest one) is 12345678910111, matching the first 14 digits of the counting numbers, ... which is thus a(1).
The next digit of the counting numbers is 2 which is the smallest prime continuing the counting digits.
