The first step in answering this kind of question is to determine what
those lines are. What are the slopes and intercepts? If you have
that, it might be easy to see why they appear. This is something that
you can and should do for yourself, Leroy.

A160855 is:
a(n) = the smallest positive integer not occurring earlier in the
sequence such
that sum{k=1 to n} a(k) written in binary contains binary n as a
substring.
(1, 3, 2, 6, 8, 4, 5, 11, 10, 24, 12, 13, 7, 9, 28, 17, 36, 14, 20,
46,...)
Now, after Ray Chandler, I think it was, extended this sequence out for
many
terms, its scatter-plot was at that point rather interesting, in my
opinion.
But now that H. v. Eitzen has extended the sequence out to 100000
terms, the
scatter-plot is even more interesting.
What explains the radiating lines, or explains the seeming random blobs
seen
when the scatter-plot is taken to a smaller number of terms?
I must be missing something obvious as to why these structures occur.
What kinds
of structures are seen when the plot is taken even farther out, I
wonder?
Thanks,
