It’s not just in the weird paperfolding that I do, but also in the most conventional sort of technical origami, that a principle of “non-interference” applies. After all, those individual toenails or flight feathers one is showing off can't be allowed to cause trouble for the rest of the bird, can they? I am something of an extremist with this principle, and often try obstinately to squeeze out as many features as possible in the middle of the sheet while leaving the edges entirely unblemished.
