Hi Torgny, I love puzzles and games, so I gave it a shot. I think I found three. Feel free to "check my work".

Ha! That was fun.
C'mon gentlemen: symmetry doesn't exist. It's an impossibility, a cosmic, religious, universal aporia.

Ordo,

Could you elaborate on that? Seems to me anyhow that most living things including humans could be cut in halves. Vertically that is. Sorry about the morbid remark, but nature has ways to economize

Any serious debate has to begins with definitions

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aporia

Wish you both a nice weekend. Stay out of trouble

Cheers

Torgny


Post scriptum This is another puzzle, well suited for an easy weekend with rain

Nature despises symmetry.
The human body in particular is anything but symmetric. You have one hearth and it's not symmetric.
You cannot cut whatever in two perfect halves, be it a stone or a person or a universe. Try it.
Asymmetry defines identity. You are unique because of your asymmetries.

Well said, Ordo! One may "assume" that symmetry, then is a product of man? Is a snowflake assymetrical? Not being argumentative, merely curious for another opinion.

Torgny, I found four things on this latest picture. I could have pointed out more, not of a structural nature, such as items showing through windows. Not wanting to be TOO "nit-picky".

It's an apparent symmetry. If you carefully check each cristaline structure you will find differences. This is almost a philosofical dilema. Absolutely perfect symmetry is impossible. I guess that even two atoms of the same element are different and unique. Anyway do not disregard the chance that i'm saying nonsense. My brain is deeply 'assymmetric' this days. Regards.

This subject is quite interesting. I'm reading some amazing papers about symmetry. Thanks Torgny for bringing it here. Food for the brain.
