Negative entropy: according to Schrodinger negative entropy is the amount of order that an organism "sucks from its environment" as its lives or "avoids decay to thermodynamical equilibrium or of maximum entropy".
Site - Non-site
Symmetry: "relation of parts, proportion," from Greek symmetria "agreement in dimensions, due proportion, arrangement," from symmetros "having a common measure, even, proportionate," from assimilated form of syn- "together" (see syn-) + metron "meter" (see meter (n.2)). Meaning "harmonic arrangement of parts" first recorded 1590s.
