Stop using that terminology.

The sequence is perfectly well-defined.
n >= 0 is in the sequence iff it is of the form 6^x - y^2.
Every n >= 0 is either of this form or it is not.

The question is, is the sequence computable?
Specifically, is there an algorithm that determines if n is in or out of 
the sequence?

The real question is,
