I'm a college student of Computer Science, who likes Number Theory (like you haven't heard that one before!).

You can probably find me online on GMail (furlox.mod@gmail.com) but I wouldn't know why you'd want to do that. I have a thing for four-leggeds, too.

comment A prime number pattern
Finding numbers for which terminal values are $-1$ still hasn't landed me an odd number. This strongly points towards there being a poof. edit: Read @alex.jordan's explanation, much better than what I posted.

I can't post to OEIS, its unlisted there. Maybe someone might help? Here are some lists filtered by primality. Z=0, Z=1, Z=2

@alex.jordan Yes. For every other odd prime from 3, the cycle seems to reach 1. However, by removing the is-prime constraint, we also get numbers like 8,14,20,25,27,30,33,35... (for Z=1)
