COMMENTS

For any pair of contiguous terms, one of the terms uses fewer digits than the other. This term is called the mask. Put the mask on the other term, starting from the left. What is not covered by the mask rebuilds, term by term, the starting sequence.
The nth term of the sequence has exactly 2^(n1) digits, which means that a(21) has more than one million digits.
The sequence starts with a(1) = 1, then a(n) = 10^(2^(n1)1)+a(n1).

EXAMPLE

In the pair (1,11), 1 is the mask; 1 emerges = a(1);
In the pair (11,1011), 11 is the mask; 11 emerges = a(2);
In the pair (1011,10001011), 1011 is the mask; 1011 emerges = a(3); etc.
