Q:
# Why Is Symmetry Important?

**Symmetry is important because it is the main feature of nature that restricts the permissible dynamic laws.** The concept of balance is very important to understanding how symmetry works.

For symmetrical balance, a vertical axis is needed. The symmetry axis for human beings is vertical, which is why balanced weight is needed on both feet. Humans have to find a symmetrical balance in order to learn how to walk or ride a bike.

Symmetry is applicable in classical laws of motion and quantum mechanics. The law of nature is based on symmetry, but with many symmetry-breaking mechanisms in place. One new feature is supersymmetry, an extension of the geometric symmetry of space and time that also includes fermionic or anticommuting charges.
