One friend has given me this binary sequence and asked what is its speciality if we add next few terms to this sequence?
The binary sequence was: $$\color{blue}{\underline{100101100110100}}101101001 \dots$$ Hints Given: It's a Classical one.
So,could anyone please help me to recognise its speciality...


Is it:

The (opposite of the) Thue-Morse sequence.

Start with $1 \to 10 \to 1001 \to 10010110 \to 1001011001101001$, where at each step the opposite of what is already there is added.

It could be

Binary strings that have 1s where 'evil numbers' occur, 0s elsewhere and every term ends >!with the n-th evil number index (counting with 0 = first).

It could be:

Morse code with a 1 as a dot, a 11 as a dash, 0 as a gap between dots and dashes, and 00 as gap between letters.

In which case:

The message becomes "EANRE". Not sure if this is if any note...

    $\begingroup$ Curiously, Morse is relevant here, but not that Morse. $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Mar 6 at 12:30
