    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    I would probably be afraid to touch it. I would either cut myself, or drop it. I would stand about 5 feet away and say "That looks nice".

    2^13=8192. So the smith starts with two layers.

    I was figuring that they started with a single bar and then the first fold began.

    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

    They do. 1*2=2 (first fold), then 2*2=4 (second fold), then 4*2=8, (third fold), 8*2=16 (fourth), 16*2=32 (fifth), 32*2=64 (sixth) 64*2 = 128 (seven), 128*2= 256 (eight), 256*2=512 (nine), 512*2=1024 (ten), 1024*2=2048 (eleven), 2048*2=4096 (twelve), 4096*2= 8192 (thirteen).

    Boom.

    They start with only 1 bar... 13 folds, the first is 2 layers so 2^13=8192 yes but it is 13 folds the first makes the 2 layers. See my last post.
