Radial symmetry is the mathematical term for symmetry that is repeated around a single main axis, so that the shape can be divided into similar halves by any plane that contains the main axis.
According to the mathematician @marcusdusautoy , bees have evolved to seek flowers by recognizing radial symmetry. The basic building block of their hives is also a hexagon, which has six sided radial symmetry.

Oddly enough, human women in every part of the world also generate radial symmetry when making lace. It seems to be a deeply satisfying instinct that transcends cultural differences.

The human body is also built on radial (bilateral) symmetry. It's found everywhere in nature, from the galactic level to the atomic level of scale. This caused thinkers like Buckminster Fuller to hypothesize that symmetry is a principle of how the material world functions, and that implies that fairness and reciprocity are primary, self-reinforcing social principles because of the deeper underlying material principle of symmetry.

Theoretical physicist Nassim Haramein has mathematical proofs that show that the structure of space-time is actually symmetrical. So given that the actual framework of reality is symmetrical, and practically every living organism on earth is symmetrical, it appears that evolution favors symmetry. It's an idea first popularized by Fuller, that this applies just as much to human culture, constructions, economics, and society as it applies to the nonhuman world.

"Mathematics has beauty and romance. It's not a boring place to be, the mathematical world. It's an extraordinary place; it's worth spending time there." Marcus du Sautoy #mathematics #science #communication #mathematician #engineering #physicalscience #grouptheory #numbertheory #marcusdusautoy

I’ve always been obsessed with numbers and was really good at math in grade school and high school, the movie The Number 23, dates like Aug 9th 1989 (8-9-89), patterns, pi, and the like but this man is a hero! 😍😱🎆🧐🌌🤯🤔🎇😁 he’s almost more of a philosopher than a mathematics professor! #marcusdusautoy #numbers #itallmakessense #TheCode #universalcode #truthseeker #patterns #itclicks #obsessive #pi #mathmetician

Wow! It finally happened. The two beers podcast is officially posted! If your one of those people who enjoys buzzed banter then this podcast is for you. This episode we wrestle with a beautiful ditty called “The great unknown: Seven journeys to the frontiers of science”. By the brilliant @marcusdusautoy . The great thing about this book is I didn’t have to complete grasp the concepts as by definition these are the edges of our understanding. @marcusdusautoy has a easy to absorb writing style that makes the complex feel just within the grasps of a lay person like myself. #thegreatunknow #marcusdusautoy #goodread #science #neverstoplearning #podcast #bookreview #conversation

Flowers and thoughtful notes post-event at the Science Museum for the Mathematical Science Research Institute (MSRI) 💜 #unexpected #connections #music #piano #Bach #mathematician #marcusdusautoy #symmetry #performance #playwright #tomstoppard #MSRI

So thrilled to perform from Bach’s Goldberg Variations, brought to laser-sharp focus by the celebrated Marcus du Sautoy’s talk on symmetry in the piece. The inspiring setting with amazing acoustics was the Winton Gallery at the Science Museum, designed by #ZahaHadid, with a huge 3-dimensional canopy based on the air flows that would have surrounded the aircraft in flight.

Playing #Bach with the celebrated mathematician Marcus du Sautoy’s talk on the art of symmetry for the Science Museum and the Mathematical Research Sciences Institute (MSRI) at the inspiring Mathematics: The Winton Gallery designed by #ZahaHadid #Bach #GoldbergVariations #piano #performance #AnnieYim #marcusdusautoy #sciencemuseum #msri #music #mathematics

A great honour to give a special performance with a fascinating talk by #mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, “A Song To Symmetry” at the Zaha Hadid-designed Mathematics: The Winton Gallery at the Science Museum. All set up last night for Music and Mathematics, and more, at the Science Museum for the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) event. #mathematics #music #gallery #zahahadid #collaboration #Bach #GoldbergVariations #piano #performance #AnnieYim #marcusdusautoy #sciencemuseum #msri #aboutlastnight

Marcus du Sautoy is our new family hero! He gave Ayla his paper Hay rose after she asked a question about infinities and now she is attending all of his lectures today. Direct quote after his lecture on the unknown "I no longer want to be a singer mummy. It's way more exciting to study Maths at Oxford!" Ayla is dyslexic and very, very bright (especially at pattern recognition) but, sadly, sometimes misunderstood at school. This has been such a boost for her. What an inspiring educator! #maths #womenempowerment #girlswholikemath #womeninmath #inspirational #inspire #marcusdusautoy #oxforduniversity #thegreatunknownbook #hayfestival

Weekend Reading ‘ What We Cannot Know ‘
by Marcus du Sautoy, 2016

「もしも自然が美しくなかったなら、わざわざ知るには値せず、人生を経験するにも及ばない。」(アンリ・ポアンカレ)

科学の現在とその歴史を巡るこの雄大な物語は、ワクワク刺激的だ。
500頁を超える大書ながら飽きることはない。
もちろん、全て理解なんて無理だけど、それでも楽しくてどんどんページを繰る。

#読書記録 #知の果てへの旅 #新潮社クレストブックス #自然科学 #whatwecannotknow #marcusdusautoy #naturalscience #readingbook

Kolejny #długiweekend... W planach #wycieczka, #śniadanienamieście i #piknik ... a w wersji dla męża #pikniknaukowy... z "To czego się nie dowiemy. Badanie granic nauki" @marcusdusautoyprivate .
