Perfectly symmetrical plants – natural beauty that will mesmerize you!

If you think that perfect symmetry is common of human-made objects only, you are totally wrong: there is a great deal of beautiful and hypnotizing symmetry in nature. This time, we will show you ideally symmetrical plants created by the best architect – nature.


Already in the 4th century B.C. the Greek philosopher Plato believed that symmetry in nature proves the hypothesis of universality of forms. Galileo Galilei was sure that our universe is functioning according to mathematical laws and its main symbols are triangles, circles and other geometric figures. When you look at these wonderful plants, you will certainly understand the line of thought of the two scientists.

Ed Meadows Ed, linear thinking will not grasp the reality. There is no 'first' here. Physical form and underlying mathematical relationships are fundamentally analogous to each other. In this sense, the underlying math is a relationship discerned by humans and used to describe, predict, and replicate (where possible) those relationships.
