Fill in the missing numbers in the sequence.

5, 3, 8, 2, 2, ?, 5, 3, 7, ?, 2, ?, ...

 Not a sequence of numbers | Comment 11 of 15 |
I started playing around with the idea of froming lines by arranging the 12 numbers in rows such as 2x6, 3x4 and so on. When I tried 6 rows of 2 numbers  --so the sequence could be considered a sequence of PAIRS of numbes-- I found some regularities:

5 3
8 2
2 ?
5 3
7 ?
2 ?

This kind of problem is so undeterminate I can offer a lot of explanations: for example the sums may be 8, 10, 12, 8, 10, 12 ... and the missing numbers would be 10, 3 and 10. But of course the sums could be 8, 10 and 7 (why not?) and the missing numbers would be 8, 3 and 5. And, of course, there could exist mny other "hidden" rules, hopefully having something to do with music, but it's too vague anyway.

My apologies to the author but I will not lose any more time on this.
