Is folding 1,000 Origami Yodas a spiritual journey?

Is folding 1,000 Origami Yodas to promote “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda” a spiritual journey?

So far … no.

However, I have at times reached momentary Zen-like states where Yodas are created almost without my awareness.

I am also continuing to learn about the folds. There are a lot of variables which one must approximate — the size of the paper, the exact spot to fold the body, the angle of the ears, etc… I still don’t understand all the ways in which these variables work together. Though there are many variations, most look pretty good from the front, but sometimes the other side can get tricky, especially when – for whatever reason — the two sides overlap. No overlap, no problem.

Ocassionally — and I mean maybe 6 times out of 600 Yodas — there will be a Golden Yoda. This means that when it is time to fold the ears, they fold out on the existing creases. Very rare. Interstingly, Golden Yodas don’t necessarily look better than non-Golden. In fact, some of the Yodas that are most messy on the back look perfect from the front.
