Falcao proved that there is an infinite sequence starting with 2 (or 0 if
you like). I have verified that all its values below 10^10 are uniquely
defined (all possible bifurcations die sooner or later). So we can be sure
that there is no deadend for A259934. It is an open question though if
there exists a viable bifurcation point.
