The brain turns doodling everytimes we are too bored, and this is why nobody is bored when making something that is beautiful.
"Weird is too easy, too obvious, too thin"
The most common activity in corporate meetings is making ephemeral artworks, drawing small graphics, keeping your neurons busy because weirdness is a bore killer and an efficient mean to improve creativity drawing the flow of time.
"As long as data scientists admit that they mostly just redo linear regression in weirder and weirder ways"
Doodling nurtures our need to get old thoughts out of our mind. It's not bizarre, it's ordinary.
