One of the important theoretical problems in living nature is shaping. The study of this problem has practical importance in connection with the demands of modern medicine. The study of laws and algorithms of formation is one of the important directions of developmental biology. Measurements of proportions of body parts traditionally carried out on the basis of affine (simple) relations between the indices of two anatomical measurements. However, three – membered structures predominate in the human body. The criterion of conformal symmetry between blocks of three successive segments of lines is wurf. By analogy with the three-membered structures of the human body, author on large number of observations parameters of the heart and kidneys of people of all ages is in three segments related in conformal symmetry. Wurf value of the right and left kidneys, of the human heart are clustered around the numbers 1,3, closer in meaning to “golden” wurf. In each age group, the ratio of the three parameters heart, its ventricles is relatively constant, independent of age. Conformity reflects some strict and constant space-time parameters of macroscopic growth.
