People applied mathematical principles to the art, to discover the underlying laws, and that leads to a very powerful tool. The secret to productivity in so many fields — and in origami — is letting dead people do your work for you.

Because what you can do is take your problem and turn it into a problem that someone else has solved and use their solutions.
