Hi Chris G, thanks for taking the time to read about our work (I'm one of the authors of the original paper). I'm pleased that you found the sequences you derive intriguing, but it's important to remember that it is very easy to find apparently meaningful sequences from pairs of integers once you allow yourself a few "close"s and "swap"s and "multiplied by"s. If you haven't done so already you might find reading our paper and some of the references it cites useful in articulating your ideas in ways that help guard against this pitfall.

## Thanks Chris G
