What happens in the representation going from binary to trinary is that there is an organization of the space as binary that is somehow being at once the expansions in binary, and a layout only in binary, as it were. To go to higher integral bases, while it allows more terse notations, they are yet of broader alphabets.
Point being, yes something "occurs" between binary and trinary in representation of values of a continuum (here of R[0,1], the unit line segment).
It's a feature of the numbers and their spaces.
