EXAMPLE

The pairwise average of the semiprimes {4 = 2^2, 14 = 2*7} is {9 = 3^2}.

The pairwise averages of the semiprimes {4, 14, 38} are {9, 21, 26}.

The pairwise averages of the semiprimes {4, 14, 38, 134} are {9, 21, 26, 69, 74, 86}.

The pairwise averages of the semiprimes {4, 14, 38, 134, 254} are {9, 21, 26, 69, 74, 86, 129, 134, 146, 194}.

278 is not an element because, although (4 + 278)/2 = 141 = 3 * 47 and (14 + 278)/2 = 146 = 2 * 73 and (38 + 278)/2 = 158 = 2 * 79 and (134 + 278)/2 = 206 = 2 * 103, the pattern breaks down with (254 + 278)/2 = 266 = 2 * 7 * 19 is not semiprime. 758 also works with 4, 14, 38 and 134, but fails with 254. By exhaustive search, there is no a(6) < 1000.
