COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 2.
(ii) If n > 30, then 2*n + 1 can be written as 2*p + q with p, q and prime(p + 2) + 2 all prime.
Part (i) implies both the Goldbach conjecture and the twin prime conjecture. If all primes p with prime(p + 2) + 2 are smaller than an even number N > 2, then for any such a prime p the number N! + N  p is in the interval (N!, N! + N) and hence not prime.
Similarly, part (ii) implies both Lemoine's conjecture (cf. A046927) and the twin prime conjecture.
We have verified part (i) of the conjecture for n up to 2*10^8.

EXAMPLE

a(10) = 1 since 2*10 = 3 + 17 with 3, 17 and prime(3 + 2) + 2 = 11 + 2 = 13 all prime.
a(589) = 1 since 2*589 = 577 + 601 with 577, 601 and prime(577 + 2) + 2 = 4229 + 2 = 4231 all prime.
