An interesting question: is 36 a special constant for  neighboring primes?
Since A214156 has period of length 36, I tried to consider sequences with the same rule but with another initials hoping to find periods with other lengths. I considered initials (2,3), (3,2), (3,5), (5,3), (5,7),(7,5),(7,11),(11,7),(11,13),(13,11),(13,17),(17,13),(17,19),(19,17),(19,23),(23,19). But every time I obtained period of length 36(!). It is interesting, when this chain will be btoken and what periods with other lengths we obtain in such case? I ask anyone to verify my handy calculations and possibly to continue them.


Regards,
Vladimir
