Part 1) Determine the rule to extend the sequence.

The rule seems to be to double the previous entry until one or more gaps exist in the sequence. At that point insert the first missing number, then start the doubling again. This quickly becomes an alternation of doubling and filling in, as it doesn't seem the case that doubling fails to leave a gap except at the very beginning.
