Symmetrical thinking is a thinking method different from two-dimensional thinking, and it enables us to grasp a thing by the symmetrical viewpoint. Symmetry is the most basic movement in nature, and can be seen in almost all the things in nature. Thus, when we observe a thing in nature by using symmetrical thinking, we can easily grasp the true figure. In this sense, this thinking is indeed useful for us to check obscure phenomena observed in a human body.
Right and Left
The first step of symmetric thinking is to find out the symmetrical relationship between right and left. Although a right and a left side appear to be only opposite ones, they differ in meaning. To know the meaning, let us see the Goddess of Liberty. The picture below left is the Goddess of Liberty in Tokyo; that below middle is the Goddess of Liberty in Paris; that below right is the Goddess of Liberty in New York.
The Statue of Liberty has a torch in her left hand, and has the Unanimous Declaration in her right hand. This reveals as follows: "Right is the symbol of power; Left is the symbol of spirit." In addition, power and spirit can philosophically be considered opposite meanings with each other. Thus, it can be indicated that the relationship between right and left also maintains the symmetrical relationship.
Up and Down
The next step of symmetrical thinking is to find out the symmetrical relationship between up and down, in addition to that between right and left. A human body, for instance, can be divided between an up and a down element, which are the head and the trunk. Importantly, the head and the trunk can also be considered to maintain the symmetrical relationship.
Next, consider why can I indicate that the head and the trunk maintain the symmetrical relationship? The head has the brain, which can be divided between the right and the left brain. In addition, whereas the right brain controls organs in the left trunk, the left brain controls organs in the right trunk. This reveals that the head has quite opposite function to that of the trunk. As a result, it can be concluded that the head and the trunk form the symmetrical relationship.
Notice that the conclusion above, which is the symmetrical relationship between the head and the trunk, enables us to point out how a human body causes disease in the brain. Although the majority of medical doctors pay attention only the brain when a person causes a brain disease such as infraction, bleeding, and tumor, they should pay attention not only to the brain but also to the trunk. Why? The brain maintains the symmetrical relationship with the trunk, so that even when disease appears in the brain, its fundamental cause can theoretically be considered to often originate in the trunk. That is, there is a strong possibility that the fundamental causes of diseases occurring in the head often originate in the trunk.
