The limiting Rabbit Sequence written as a Binary Fraction
(Sloane's A005614), where
denotes a Binary number (a number in base-2). The Decimal value is

(Sloane's A014565).

Amazingly, the rabbit constant is also given by the Continued Fraction [0, , , , ,
...], where are Fibonacci Numbers with taken as 0 (Gardner 1989, Schroeder 1991).
Another amazing connection was discovered by S. Plouffe. Define the Beatty Sequence by

where is the Floor Function and is the Golden Ratio. The first few terms are 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 11, ... (Sloane's A000201). Then
