One point of symmetry belongs to the key for the note D, and the other (on the black keys) is 6 (= 12 : 2) "semi-tones" ("half-steps"?!) above (or below), resulting on the key for the note Ab (G#). Well it is the black one... in the middle... of the sub-group of three black keys.

Symmetry - video link (only about D though)
That is interesting. Thanks. It never struck me before.
It's time to take a stand against the synthesizer.
