Guided not by a foggy chiral memory but acting out of cold thermokinetic instinct, an enantiopure diene–metal complex, which barely registers a chiroptical signal, strikes adroitly at the heart of a floppy chiral corannulene, as it flails in form from right to left; thus ensues the resolution of the buckybowl's dynamic dance. Symmetry is lost in the recognition of a face, and the CD signature rises to reveal one hand, as described by K. K. Baldridge, J. S. Siegel et al. in their Communication on page 865 ff.
