Can we learn about nature from Second Life

A gate
Second Life gives us the opportunity to build a world, that is it allows us the chance of playing creator, kind of God like at a level that say a limited Sim game never could. 4 years ago no one could have predicted how SL would evolve.

Notice these gates all show a very pronounced amount of symmetry. The three spots of grass are the same on all edges. Second Life is full of symmetries like this. Symmetry reduces costs of making a world and time of rezzing. Perhaps our Universe also has symmetry to reduce overall costs of reality?
