%N Numbers k such that 2k + p is composite for all primes p, q with p + q = 2k.

%C Or, numbers k such that there is no prime p < 2k with 2k - p and 2k + p both prime.

%C The two initial terms vacuously satisfy the definition, but all even numbers >= 4 are the sum of two primes, according to the Goldbach conjecture.

%C See also A284919, twice this sequence, which lists the values of 2k.
