Bruce found a nice quote on the web, then wrote it in on a square piece of paper and left it somewhere in his room. The quote had exactly 64 characters excluding spaces. He has written the characters in 8 rows and 8 columns, ignoring word-breaking.
His younger sister Kim was helping Bruce to clean his room and thought the quote was garbage. So she ripped the paper into 64 equal pieces. Fortunately every character (no spaces) was on a separate piece of paper and she had some rules for ripping a piece of paper. Also she didn't scramble the pieces and left them in the stack she achieved.
Bruce figured out that she had some rules for ripping the paper:
- She had started with paper heads up.
- Rip paper(s) into exact halves from top to bottom, one held in her right hand and the other in her left.
- Put the right hand piece(s) on top of the left hand piece(s), and hold them in her left hand.
- If the pieces are not square shaped, rotate them counter-clockwise.
- Rip again from top to bottom.
The order of characters on piece of papers from front to back was:
Bruce had no problem recovering his quote from the pieces (not web). Can you recover the quote?
PS. I created this puzzle, so would love to hear your opinion.
