This paper describes the chiral symmetry of the universal electrodynamic force law. This symmetry can be observed on all size scales from the smallest elementary particle to the structure of the universe as a whole. It is found in inanimate snow flakes and living things, such as organic molecules, leaf patterns, seed patterns, snail shells, etc. The effect of chiral symmetry in nature is shown using pictures. Even the concept of beauty in nature appears to be based primarily on chiral symmetry.
