The existence of symmetry laws is in full accordance with our daily experience. The simplest of these symmetries, the isotropy and homogeneity of space, are concepts that date back to the early history of human thought.
If the chain symmetry is maintained in the crystal lattice, the possible occurrence of different space groups is considerably restricted.
Giulio Natta
Symmetry principles are principles governing the laws of nature that say those laws look the same if you change your point of view in certain ways.
