It is interesting that we are pre-programmed to seek symmetry in the world around us. Our eyes pick out patterns which help us make sense of the world and also warn us of possible danger. (The tiger in the bush, the striped snake in the grass).

They also work on the level of displaying the beauty to be found in the patterns and designs of our natural world from the large to the minute. (Difficult that having the two words spelt the same with vastly different meanings – I suppose you could have a minute part of a minute!) Instead how about an “M”.
