COMMENTS

The primes p in this sequence satisfy b#/2 = 4p + r, where p is a prime, b# is a primorial, and r is the second of the twin prime pair (r2, r).
Each p is therefore associated with at least one primorial, and with a pair of twin primes.
The empirical evidence suggests that each twin prime pair is associated with at least one p, and each p with a twin prime pair. I conjecture that this sequence (and therefore the sequence of twin primes) is infinite.
