Default Symmetrophobia is from 1809, supposed to be evident in Egyptian temples and Japanese

Not in this picture of a simple observatory station

Interesting, Torgny. I never knew such a condition existed. Here's a picture I found on the subject.

Robert,

Thanks for the link. I didn't know either that there was such a "disorder" - symmetry might be the most economical way to be arranged/arrange things; at least in nature. Most things in nature can be "cut in two halves"

I've heard that carpet manufacturers of old weaved in a fault if they antecipated perfection - only Allah was/is supposed to achieve perfection.

Had a discussion the other day about perfection with one of all my sons - he'd been listening to a piece of J. S. Bach. Suddenly everything else became ....

There is something dangerous to perfection - I can understand the girl in the link, I think

Torgny

Btw to the right of the building is a collection of genetically "deformed" trees. A dwarf, and some strange branch forms. Wonder what they "talk to"

I could be wrong, but it seems in nature, even at the cellular level, when the cell splits, it continues to divide symmetrically, but at some point, after manufacturing two of most everything, we end up with only one of several things. Brain, mouth, nose, to just name a few. And those "items" are located in such a way as to be divisible themselves, although painfully, I'm sure. Interesting subject.

The Japanese call appreciation of the flaw, which includes "imperfect, impermanent and incomplete", Wabi-Sabi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wabi-sabi I've read that artists depicting nature deliberately put a flaw in their work because of this, though couldn't find a reference after a short search.

Well there is no danger of not being able to find flaws in some of my camera work, I think I would be a great Wabi-Sabier or what ever you are when you Wabi Sabi......... Frank

After I learned about Wabi-Sabi I'd just quote Pee Wee Herman when someone criticized my work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJXU7EVXs2A Go ahead, click it. Clips only 25 seconds long.
