EXAMPLE

If a(n)=1235, a(n+1) could only be 1235+1, or 1235+2, or 1235+3, or 1235+5, or 1235+12, or 1235+23, or 1235+35, or 1235+123, or 1235+235, or 1235+1235, depending on the numbers already used.
In fact, 1258 follows 1235 in the sequence, because 1235+23=1258, and 23 is the smallest subchain in 1235 that has not already been used up to this point (1,2,4,8,6,22,44,88,7,3, etc. are the numbers that have been used).
