Why is it that our universe isn't perfectly symmetric? To demonstrate imagine that the 0 is the center of the universe:
abc 0 cba Why doesn't the universe look like this? Why isn't there another me on the equally opposite side of the universe doing the same thing as I am right now?

Symmetry is a matter of perspective. If the universe is, as it appears to be, homogeneous and isotropic that sounds pretty symmetric to me.
