Twirls + Origami

Dlaczego origami tak bardzo lubi symetrię?! / Why origami likes symmetry!?

A spiral is a curve on a plane that winds around a fixed center point at a continuously increasing or decreasing distance from the point.

A helix (a three-dimentional spiral) is a three-dimensional curve that turns around an axis at a varying distance while moving parallel to the axis.

A helix is a type of smooth space curve, i.e. a curve in three-dimensional space. It has the property that the tangent line at any point makes a constant angle with a fixed line called the axis.

The length and width of a helix typically remain static and do not grow like on a planar spiral.

The word helix comes from the Greek word ἕλιξ, "twisted, curved".[2]

A conic helix may be defined as a spiral on a conic surface, with the distance to the apex an exponential function of the angle indicating direction from the axis.
