Fractal generated spirals suggesting an abstract galactic spiral. Some mathematical rule-patterns can mimic patterns in nature including the mathematics of symmetry. Also applicable to supersymmetry. Supersymmetry (SUSY) is a particle physics theory that proposes a type of spacetime symmetry relating two basic classes of elementary particles: bosons, which have an integer-valued "spin", and fermions, which have a half-integer spin. If supersymmetry is a true symmetry of nature, it would explain many mysterious features of particle physics and would help solve paradoxes such as the cosmological constant problem. There is only indirect evidence for the existence of supersymmetry, primarily in the form of evidence for gauge coupling unification.
