Absolute Centric Symmetry

We look to curves of several types for secrets of natural or organic form-development. Since only the perfect circle, or absolute centric symmetry (which does not exist in nature), expresses equal tensions on all sides and in all directions, we recognize from the start that unequal tensions are the true order of nature, and that all of nature's forms are the result of dynamic-static synthesis.
