# Teams Typing Indicator

I was wondering if anyone knew the pattern that the three dots on the teams typing indicator make. I'm not sure if it is partially stochastic. For sure it isn't totally random.

Any help would be great!

I don't know the answer either, but I have my suspicions that the code was written by a musician whop plays the trumpet. Maybe it's his favourite tune!

Not sure if you've ever received an answer, but I've figured out that it's:

1-2-3

2-3

1-3

2-3

and then it repeats starting at the 1-2-3 again.

Cheers,

Henri

What does this say about us?  I observed it and googled was relieved to find I'm not the only one who pondered this. :)

@Henri_Abrahams Thanks for the solution!

You know I think this is a bigger analogy for many phenomena, explaining a lot of what we see in the universe around us. What may seem at first glance to be completely random, when studied, has a pattern and structure-- some algorithm or function to define it, how math can explain the universe. I think the fact that the teams typing indicator has a predefined structure to it is pretty solid evidence that we are living in a simulation

yes, but what tune is it???  Inquiring minds want to know!

I concur. Watched in slow motion recording and got this:
