In chess problems, harmony is all about analogy. I dont know why is symmetry, as "geometrical analogy" considered as a flaw, only becouse of hers visual character.
  (3) Posted by Hauke Reddmann [Wednesday, Feb 28, 2007 17:48]  Because symmetry may be boring: almost by definition,
symmetry doesn't show anything new. In this case, of course,
*the complete* variants show a cycle and thus, something
additional is generated.
Hauke   (4) Posted by Uri Avner [Wednesday, Feb 28, 2007 22:00]  Symmetry by itself is boring and uninteresting. Why then do we feel something totally different here?
My explanation goes like this:
The two symmetrical parts actually complement each other to create a far from trivial 4fold cycle. Consequently, what might have remained two disconnected, tedious parts is actually converted into a wonderful whole. The surprise created by the gap between expectation and actuality has its own special value as a paradox.
