Symmetrical Dialectics

What are the implications that symmetry has for Hegel’s dialectics? This weeks In Our time had a rather interesting discussion on symmetry. I couldn’t help but relate the discussion back to our dear old Hegel with his synthesis and antithesis. Could it be that what within Philosophy as in Physics symmetry has things to offer. I particularly liked the reminder left over that lead to dynamism. This reminder driving the chaotic change forcing the system to recreate and form into new different synthesis. I wondered if perhaps the old fractal loving side of me was re-emerging from a slumber.

Are these new synthesis of symmetries more complex, does this endorse Hegel’s progressionist view of history?
