art of defragmented minds

Posting about my art yesterday reminded me of the first ten minutes of this video (which I first watched a couple of months ago), where Jordan Peterson (I hadn’t heard of him; and didn’t know Russell Brand was doing them!; before seeing this video, suggested by YouTube, after I’d watched other podcasts) talks about patterns of universal frequency.

Peterson says a couple of PTSD sufferers with fragmented minds started doing art, and their spontaneous drawings were fragmented at first. As they recovered, their art became more symmetrical and regular; like mandalas.

When I started drawing after taking redundancy from work, I was very drawn (unconscious at first, then noticed by conscious, pun!) towards drawing, and it included this very lined one, which ended up reminding me of an angel or mothman.
