Desperately Seeking Symmetry

I've been listening to Radiolab while I've been working on my 3d model of my school project.  This episode is really amazing, and explores issues such as how we perceive ourselves, how others perceive us, and what happens when these things are mirrored, flipped, or rotated.

This hour of Radiolab, Jad and Robert set out in search of order and balance in the world around us, and ask how symmetry shapes our very existence--from the origins of the universe, to what we see when we look in the mirror.
Along the way, we look for love in ancient Greece , head to modern-day Princeton to peer inside our brains, and turn up an unlikely headline from the Oval Office circa 1979.
