**symmetry**and asymmetry such as with thirds (minor and major) which are unequal progressions.**Symmetry**generally conveys two primary meanings. The first is an imprecise sense of harmonious or aesthetically pleasing proportionality and balance; such that it reflects beauty or perfection. The second meaning is a precise and well-defined concept of balance or "patterned self-similarity" that can be demonstrated or proved according to the rules of a formal system: by geometry, through physics or otherwise.Although the meanings are distinguishable in some contexts, both meanings of "

**symmetry**" are related and discussed in parallel.The precise notions of

**symmetry**have various measures and operational definitions. For example,**symmetry**may be observed- with respect to the passage of time;
- as a spatial relationship;
- through geometric transformations such as scaling, reflection, and rotation;
- through other kinds of functional transformations; and

This article describes these notions of

**symmetry**from four perspectives. The first is that of**symmetry**in geometry, which is the most familiar type of**symmetry**for many people. The second perspective is the more general meaning of**symmetry**in mathematics as a whole. The third perspective describes**symmetry**as it relates to science and technology. In this context,**symmetries**underlie some of the most profound results found in modern physics, including aspects of space and time. Finally, a fourth perspective discusses**symmetry**in the humanities, covering its rich and varied use in history, architecture, art, and religion.The opposite of
