add together the digits until you get a 1-digit number. Take two to the power of the result.
If the number is already in the sequence, add 1 until you get a new one.

a(n)=the 180° rotation of the nth number which is still a number when read upside down (i.e composed only of 0,1,2,5,6,8,9)




The problem with this thread is that you get a lot of sequences like 6,6,3,3,8,3,5,5, and no one's going to guess that it's "every other digit of 6√131".
