She has conquered the world’s most challenging peaks: Mont Blanc, Grand Paradiso, the Grossglockner, Manaslu, Denali, Nanga Parbat, Aconcagua, Mt. Everest, and more. From Alaska to the Himalayas, she has not only climbed, but she has saved lives in the process. Nina was awarded a medal of honor in Alaska for rescuing a mountaineer. She has ridden a motorcycle across Thailand and traversed the Atlantic in a sailboat.
Nina is interested in “Distance Learning in Extreme Environments." Currently, she is working on the project of integration technology for collecting data regarding climate change in the polar regions.
What do a planet, an attractive face, and a snowflake have in a common? Symmetry.
Symmetry is prevalent throughout life. You can fold a sunflower in half, stories have an arc, and the human body can bend and create mesmerizing shapes. There are also irregularities that enhance life; they add beauty and complexity. If there’s symmetry in nature, then there must be a kind of symmetry in the way we lead our lives.
Symmetry cannot be possible without asymmetry, the same way sadness magnifies joy.
Alan Lightman wrote in The Accidental Universe, “I would claim that symmetry represents order, and we crave order in this strange universe we find ourselves in.” But chaos will happen whether we like it or not, it’s how we respond to it that either creates order or more chaos.
When in chaos, create your symmetry.
Our Saint Petersburg chapter chose this month’s exploration of Symmetry, Anna Fadeeva illustrated the theme, and Mailchimp is the presenting partner.
