%N a(1) = 4. a(n) is the smallest semiprime number, which is not an earlier term, for which a(n - 1) + a(n) is a brilliant semiprime number (A078972).

%C The brilliant semiprime numbers in order of appearance are: 10, 15, 35, 121, 169, 143, 187, 143, 35, 25, 49, 121, 169, 121, 253, 247, 391, 407, 143, 187, 299, 361, 169, 35, 143, 187, 319, 289, 121, 143, ... It is observed that some numbers repeat: 35 = 9 + 26 = 25 + 10 = 14 + 21 or 143 = 74 + 69 = 118 + 25 = 49 + 94 = 21 + 122 = 86 + 57.

%e a(1) + a(2) = 4 + 6 = A001358(1) + A001358(2) = 10 = A078972(4).

%e a(2) + a(3) = 6 + 9 = A001358(2) + A001358(3) = 15 = A078972(6).

%e a(3) + a(4) = 9 + 26 = A001358(3) + A001358(10) = 35 = A078972(9).

%e a(4) + a(5) = 26 + 95 = A001358(10) + A001358(34) = 121 = A078972(11).
