To me, symmetry is anything that comes together and finds it’s pair. That can be shapes, objects, nature, landscapes and even the very events that make up our lives.
Symmetry in Concepts
Throughout my travels, I am always fascinated by the symmetry of how at it’s core, everything is the same across the world. Sure, getting across a body of water may look different on Route 66 than it does in rural Mexico, but people still have to get to the other side.
Then, to reuse the above tram photo and change the symmetry, it also can be shown alongside the below antiquated train weaving through the hills of Sri Lanka. All are ways for people to get from point A to point B.
Symmetry in War & Peace
I also consider certain opposites symmetrical: hot and cold, night and day, war and peace.
