It is interesting that our elementary fermions have 1/2 spin, meaning it takes a full 720 degree rotation to bring them back to their original state and these fermions constitute ordinary matter, eg. quarks, and electrons.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Classical nature, however, does not have a 720 degree symmetry, but only a 360 degree symmetry. How did we lose that 720 degree symmetry? Is it the presence of bosons as force-mediators? (eg. photons, gluons etc)
