Can paper cut wood?

Can a piece of paper cut through a piece of wood? Ontario, Canada-based carpenter and YouTuber John Heisz replaced a table saw blade with a circular piece of printer paper to see what would happen. Of the experiment, he wrote:

This redefines “paper cut”, I guess… Of course, there are sections of the video where I’m cutting that are sped up as much as 16 times, so it’s not the fastest way to make a cut!

I did make another “blade” to test it on a piece of aluminum, but it more or less just polished the edge before wearing out. The abrasiveness of the paper works well on wood, but is no match for anything harder.
