It is well known that symmetry is aesthetically pleasing: it conveys a sense of harmony and balance that we find beautiful and associate with perfection, said Dr Christian Schweizer in a recent lecture. Dr Schweizer is an expert in Maharishi Vedic or Vastu architecture.
But more than its aesthetic appeal, symmetry is fundamental to nature and is the basis of evolution, he went on to say. In fact, as Maharishi Mahesh Yogi explained, symmetry gives rise to invincibility.
In biology, visible symmetry is an indicator of success or failure. It reflects the overall health and genetic fitness of an organism. In the case of the human physiology, scientific research has indicated that people with more symmetric physiques are less subject to illness.
It is interesting that research on brain functioning shows increased coherence between the two hemispheres of the brain during the Transcendental Meditation Technique, correlated with improved mental performance and experiences of higher states of consciousness: the more symmetrically the brain works, the better it performs.
The whole universe displays symmetry, from the most minute to the huge.
Planets spin around the sun in a symmetric way and the galaxies display a spiralled symmetry. When water freezes into ice, the water molecules always build a regular crystal lattice with a six-fold symmetrical pattern.
Symmetry is the foundation of mathematics and the physical sciences; it is woven into the Laws of Nature that govern the universe. Symmetry is so integral to the way the universe works that Albert Einstein used it as a guiding principle when he developed his General Theory of Relativity. The concept of universal symmetry, supersymmetry, is central to the quest of modern physics to develop the so called 'Theory of Everything' or Unified Field theory.
Applied science also makes use of symmetry, such as in engineering design, where it is used to give balance, stability and strength. The general principle is that a structure is maintained when the symmetry is maintained and breaks down when the symmetry is lost.
Global Good News will continue to feature this article, 'Beauty in Vastu', which is based on Dr Schweizer's lecture. He went on to explain how absolute symmetry exists at the level of the transcendental field of pure consciousness.
