In other words, a(1), a(2), a(1)*a(2), a(3), a(4), a(3)*a(4), a(1)*a(2)*a(3)*a(4), a(5), a(6), a(5)*a(6), etc. are all distinct.
In particular, all terms are distinct (but not necessarily in increasing order).
We can arrange the terms of the sequence as the leaves of a perfect infinite binary tree, the products with e > 0 corresponding to parent nodes; each node will contain a different value and all values will appear in the tree (if n = 2^m+1 for some m > 0, then a(n) will equal the least value > 1 missing so far in the tree).
This sequence is a variant of A361144 where we use products instead of sums.
The data section matches that of A249407, however a(115) = 121 whereas A249407(115) = 120.
