COMMENTS

The sequence lists indices n for which A280008(n) / A002375(n) is less than all previous indices n > 2.
We do not consider indices n=1 and n=2, for which the sequence A002375(n) (= number of odd primes {p,q} such that 2n=p+q) is zero.
If the Goldbach conjecture is false, then this sequence is finite. It will end with n such that A280008(n) / A002375(n) = 1 since no further terms could achieve less than this value.
If the Goldbach conjecture is true, then this sequence may be finite or infinite. The ratio A280008(n) / A002375(n) has a lower bound greater than 1 and the value of this ratio for record indices approaches the lower bound.
It is known that this sequence has additional terms beyond a(7) = 17#/2 = 255255 = A070826(7) since A280008(255255) / A002375(255255) = 0.76119 and for A070826(10) = 20#/2 = 3234846615 we have A280008(3234846615) / A002375(3234846615) = 0.78989.
