I think you misinterpreted why I was creating this function in the first place. While I was inspired by the video, I am not attempting to use this function to try and find another number after 82000. This was mostly an interesting diversion - something I could give my employees to see what they came up with.
I have given thought to how I would go about finding the next number in the sequence. What I would do is look for a pattern in the gaps between a couple of the bases. In other words, attempt to uncover a Least Common Multiple and then search for a base 6 that fits before testing further. I haven't tried it yet - given that I know how large these numbers are, I would need more time than I am currently willing to commit to making sure I haven't made a mistake.
