    Golden rule: Put it back together just like how you disassembled it.
    Edit: Thanks for the 17k likes, I know it doesn't work in everything, but still a golden first aid remedy that saved my ass many times.

      Yeah like it's like common sensei thought he have a mind blowing way to slove it.
      The way he say "it's easier to disassemble than to assemble" tricking people to not choose an easier way. It's not a puzzle it's a mind trick

    According to particle physics and string theory, the first way he showed that was unsuccessful will eventually work. The "strings" that make up all atoms and matter are constantly vibrating and moving around. So theoretically, after trying an incomprehensible amount of times (a number that's so large, it's not even really conceivable to most people), the strings will all align perfectly and the two pieces of metal will phase right through each other...thus solving the puzzle 👍🏼

    I know the second solution but I don't know how to explain well. You put together the three sticks but not on the same level. The second stick needs to look longer than the first one, the third stick needs to look longer than the second and you add the fourth stick by sliding along the three others.
