Reverse Collatz Paths

The Collatz conjecture states that repeating the following algorithm starting with any positive integer eventually reaches the number 1.
Running the Collatz algorithm in reverse starting at 1 creates a graph. The Collatz conjecture is equivalent to saying that this graph contains every positive integer.
