According to the American scientist Alan Lightman, human brains actually strive to see things symmetrically.
You might be the best photographer in the whole wide world, but sometimes the nature and our perfect desire for symmetry overpower us, creating most stunning pictures and so satisfying to the eye.

The simple explanation for our attraction to symmetry is that it’s familiar. Symmetrical objects and images play by the rules that our brains are programmed to recognize easily.

The satisfaction we feel at seeing a creatively symmetrical work of art, or a perfectly stacked display of carrots in the grocery store, is that the “stuff” of our brains is inseparable from the “stuff” of nature. If nature is symmetrical, then so is our mind. Wouldn’t you agree?
Until Next Time!
