Partial tab of my favourite Tool riff

So, right at 7.04 in Rosetta Stoned, Danny and Justin drop this fucking ace riff that is perhaps my favourite riff they have ever done. I wanted to join in with them, and eventually I learned how to play it. But I was thinking, how the hell did they compose something like this, it seems so random that I couldnt fathom how it was possible to come up with that. So I started looking for a pattern. Without really studying it, I just tried clapping along, and spontaneously, I managed to found the underlying pattern. So I tabbed it out, for everyone to see. So here it is!

I play all the off notes on the A string. Good riff. I've tabbed out several portions of the song, but most of it still manages to foil me.
