COMMENTS

The sequence gives the number of toothpicks after n stages. A182635 (the first differences) gives the number added at the nth stage.
The 120 degree wedge defines a conic region which toothpicks (except one end point of the initial toothpick) are not allowed to cross or touch. The wings of the wedge point +60 degrees away from the pointing direction of the initial toothpick.
Toothpicks are connected by their endpoints, the same as the toothpicks of A182632.
First differs from A139250 at a(11).
