COMMENTS

Conjectured to be a permutation of the nonnegative integers.
Terms are of alternating parity.
The sequence cannot have a fixed point other than a(0)=0 because for n>0, the terms are of parity opposite to that of their indices.
The number of distinct mdigit primes arising from the sequence appears to be bounded by the entries of A030186. The counts here for m=1 to 9 are 2,7,21,69,216,684,2162,6801,21623 compared to A030186's 2,7,22,71,228,733,2356,7573,24342.  Bill McEachen, Feb 15 2016
