:twisted:

Heres a number puzzle. Warning: this puzzle is fiendishly hard.

Here is a sequence of numbers:
1,2,3,2,1,2,3,4,2,1,2,3,4,3,2,3,4,5,3,2,3,4,5,4,3,4,5,6,4,3,4,5,6,5,4,5,6,7,5,2,

what is the next number in the sequence?
what is the 999th number in the sequence?

Hint: think outside the box
