Do you know this ancient legend:

"According to legend, the city of Delos in ancient Greece was once faced with a terrible plague. An oracle told them that this was a punishment from the Gods, and the plague would go away if they built a new temple that was exactly twice the volume of the existing one. The Delians doubled the edges of the temple, but the plague did not stop. What went wrong?"
