zoological symmetry & intelligence symbols

Charles Darwin discovered that animals on Earth evolve and adapt and develop and grow based on principles of super-symmetric functional adjustments.

One such evolutionary adaptation in intelligent animals is the presence of opposable thumbs. Opposable thumbs enables an animal to divide its limb-grabbing labor symmetrically and chirally, which gives it a perception of its own balance and hence organic complexity.

This idea of organic symmetry is obviously present and perceived by intelligent animals such as monkeys and humans, however, all animals possess this organic symmetry in varying degrees. For example, penguins bobble-walk very symmetrically, even though they are not as intelligent as monkeys and humans.

Such observations regarding the relationship between intelligence and organic symmetry illuminates the offbeat appeal of the Hollywood (USA) movie "12 Monkeys" (1995).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
