    I thought it was a representation of circular reasoning.

    I'm an INTJ because MBTT told me so,
    but MBTT told me I was an INTJ because I told it so.

    Yeah... okay, so it's saying that circular reasoning (which exists in MBTI) seems to work, but doesn't if you look at it? Just like that river. I think I see what you mean.

    Escher is great!

    His drawings are food for thought in themselves.

    We have to start somewhere though. People going overboard with the MBTI helps others discover its flaws and then we can work on it more and more.

    "What does it mean?" is a question I never ask myself when it comes to Esher's work.
    As to MBTI, it is not about what is wrong, but about incompleteness and enjoying exactly that

    Mippus got it right.

    Also, Athenian you got pretty close to the core of the matter yourself:

    It seems to exploit two kinds of perspective on the same object, which isn't possible in reality, but is possible in the drawing due to how the rules of perspective work.
    Like MBTI somtimes offers severel possible interpretations of the same phenomena to make things fit with the theory, even though they sometimes really shouldn't, thus seducing the psyche into reductionism.

    Everything he does is...

    His shit is cool, but the concepts are pretty bland and repetitive. They don't make any really revolutionary -- pun intended; that's verbal escher style -- statements.

    Seems to me anyway that he just uses visual puns. I think he's more of a comedian than anything else.

    I really don't see the MBTI thing.

    This might be what he was approaching (not sure what the coral is about though... probably layered cycles?).


    Sort of a cheat at perpetual motion.
