    7 rows and 13 columns.

    "1" = white

    The little people from space have sent a greet. It appears to be in English for some reason.

      Actually, those are the Lemoinan characters for "All your planet is ours".

    Count the characters.  Should be some total number that is product of two numbers.  For example, total = X times Y

    Divide the string into segments X long, and stacked in a grid Y high.  You will see some message that way.

    Same was done with the Arecibo message.

      I couldn't correlate anything from this and zero search results about the Arecibo message.

    It might help to see the text you didn't include.

    It's not 7- or 8-bit ASCII.

    Do your own homework.

    A meaningless string of binary digits.

    Claims to be a text string but matches no known standard. Not ASCII, not EBCEDIC, not even any matching keyboard string. Encrypted ?? Permutated. Nothing correlates.
