Symmetry in Social Interactions,
sabi nga nila, wag mo gagawin sa iba yung ayaw mong gawin sayo

Symmetry can be found in social interactions. An example of this would be the golden rule, “Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you.” More philosophies involve symmetry – like karma. If you do something good/bad, something good/bad will be done to you.

More examples of social interactions involving symmetry:

  • exchanging gifts and secret santas
  • reciprocated love/hate
  • favors
  • revenge “an eye for an eye”

An example of revenge would be in the movie, Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin (1994). No spoilers here! Melissa (Zsa Zsa Padilla) did something bad to Terry (Maricel Soriano) so Terry decided to do something bad to Melissa.
