 Hints (Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
 A296815 Take a squarefree semiprime and take the difference of its prime factors. If it is a squarefree semiprime repeat the process. Sequence lists the squarefree semiprimes that generate other squarefree semiprimes only in the first k steps of this process. Case k = 8. 0
