Suppose that S is a set of real numbers. An Spowertower, t, is a number t = x(1)^x(2)^...^x(k), where k >= 1 and x(i) is in S for i = 1..k. We represent t by (x(1),x(2),...x(k), which for k > 1 is defined as (x(1),((x(2),...,x(k1)); (2,3,2) means 2^9. The number k is the *height* of t. If every element of S exceeds 1 and all the power towers are ranked in increasing order, the position of each in the resulting sequence is its *rank*.
In the following guide, "tower" means "powertower", and t(n) denotes the nth {2,3}tower, represented as (x(1),x(2),...,x(k)).

EXAMPLE

The first twelve {2,3}power towers, ranked:
t(1) = (2)
t(2) = (3)
t(3) = (2,2)
t(4) = (2,3)
t(5) = (3,2)
t(6) = (2,2,2)
t(7) = (3,3)
t(8) = (3,2,2)
t(9) = (2,2,3)
t(10) = (2,3,2)
t(11) = (2,3,2)
t(12) = (3,3,2)
Concatening these towers gives the first 28 terms of the sequence.
