COMMENTS
Conjecture: Any positive rational number r can be written as m/n with m and n terms of A259488.
This implies that there are infinitely many primes p with p+2 and prime(p)+2 both prime.
I have verified the conjecture for all those r = a/b with a,b = 1,...,400. - Zhi-Wei Sun, Jun 29 2015

EXAMPLE
a(1) = 2 since prime(2)+2 = 3+2 = 5 and prime(prime(2))+2 = prime(3)+2 = 7 are both prime, but prime(1)+2 = 4 is composite.
a(49) = 7 since prime(7)+2 = 17+2 = 19, prime(prime(7))+2 = prime(17)+2 = 59+2 = 61, prime(49*7)+2 = 2309+2 = 2311 and prime(prime(49*7))+2 = prime(2309)+2 = 20441+2 = 20443 are all prime.
