I'm led to symmetry when I think of '2' in the following ways:
- Humanity's notion that symmetrical things are the epitome of perfection and hood health, Models, and people generally considered to be beautiful have symmetrical features & a golden ratio of measurements.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facial_symmetry, http://www.goldennumber.net/facial-beauty-new-golden-ratio/. And yet, nature is not symmetrical, but fractal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facial_symmetry
- In chemistry, the symmetrical opposite of a chemical compound (the TRANS orientation) behaves completley differently in reactions to its natural symmetrical opposite (CIS formation) & is often toxic. More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cis–trans_isomerism
- Hair parting looks odd when combed to the right for men (look at mirror images of abraham lincoln) & it has been shown scientifically that men are considered less trustworthy, if hair is parted to the right - fuller details here: http://www.truemirror.com/theory01.asp
- Twins-symmetry in twins
Anyway, they're my first thoughts about '2' from the city of Dublin, Ireland.
