I describe three extant attempts to identify the global external symmetries within a Humean framework with theorems of some or other deductive systematisation of the world: respectively, the best system, a meta-best system and a maximally simple system. Each has merits, but also serious flaws. Instead I propose a view of global external symmetries as consequences of the structure of Humean-consistent world-making relations.
