COMMENTS

Start with the natural numbers. Reverse the order of numbers in each pair. Skip one number. In the remainder (that is, "1, 4, 3, 6, 5, 8, 7, 10, 9, 12, 11,...") reverse the order in each triple. Skip one number. In the remainder (it starts with "4, 1, 8, 5, 6, 9, 10, 7") reverse the order in each tetrad. Skip one number. And so on.
