Unknown: You're right about that bit. There may not me any well defined frequency as whatever it is goes to infinity.

But either way, looks like the options are "structure/rules" or "random"

Besides, even the "random walk" thing... that'd still just be a type of random, not directly applied to, say, the sequence of bits but to a certain property of the sequence of bits.


That would then just fall under the category of, well, random. At least in my view. That is, those sequences of "rules" are where the randomness is instead.
