a 2

Obviously, a symmetrical mountain would be ridiculous.

A symmetrical river just isn’t going to happen.

I suspect that most people, glancing at that, would realize that it isn’t a natural snowflake. Maybe it is a computer-generated fractal or something.

I also know, with my experiments with wet spider webs, that spiders do not believe in symmetry either…
