This will converge on all even integers > 2 by
changing the formula for each even number convergence.

When (n) = pi or a multiple of pi.
4~(in(( 2+2^n)/(2^n -2)^2^n))
6~(in(( 3+3^n)/(3^n -3)^3^n))
8~(in(( 4+4^n)/(4^n -4)^4^n))
10~(in(( 5+5^n)/(5^n -5)^5^n))
12~(in(( 6+6^n)/(6^n -6)^6^n))
14~(in(( 7+7^n)/(7^n -7)^7^n))
etc.
A more rapid convergence happens as each even get
larger and with more pi multiples of (n).
