In science:

We claim further that an operation exists for any pattern satisfying a certain “mingling property”.
When Can You Fold a Map?
We call this the mingling property because, for maximal sequences of consecutive creases with the same direction, it says that there are folds of the opposite direction nearby.
When Can You Fold a Map?
In this sense, the mountain-valley pattern is “crowded” and the mountains and valleys must “mingle” together.
When Can You Fold a Map?
Next we show that having the mingling property suffices to imply the existence of a single crimpable pair or foldable end.
When Can You Fold a Map?
Ideally, we could show at this point that performing either of the two local operations preserves the mingling property, and hence a mountain-valley pattern is mingling precisely if it is flat-foldable.
When Can You Fold a Map?
Figure 10: A mingling mountain-valley pattern that when crimped is no longer mingling and hence not flat-foldable.
When Can You Fold a Map?
Proof: By Lemma 3.1, the pattern is mingling, and hence by Lemma 3.2 we can find a crimpable pair or a foldable end.
When Can You Fold a Map?
