Dedicated to the late great Ronald Laing for his magnificent little book callend Knots. The sub-title is based on that book: putting between brackets the brackets that put the brackets between brackets. If you haven't read Knots: read it! It is one long AHA-experience.

The drawing itself is based on a reflection I saw of myself in a distorted mirroring surface.
