COMMENTS

If one uses any other number as a(1), the sequence either comes to an end with a single-digit term or eventually contains increasing strings of 8, 64 and 24 repeatedly. E.g., a(1) = 1234 gives 1234, 2612, 1262, 21212, 2222, 444, 1616, 666, 3636, 181818, 88888, 64646464, 24242424242424, 8888888888888, ...
