Assymetry has its own appeal

We tend to favor symmetry. 
We like to think of symmetry as simple, efficient, balanced, beautiful. Symmetry corresponds to mathematical elegance. 
Assymetry however has its own appeal. In assymetry we can find the dialectic, and thus the engine of change, precision, growth. 
Symmetry tends toward the static whereas assymetry tends to the dynamic, to changes over time.
