From a mind at play

This drawing is from the mind of Gilles Trehin, an autistic 28-year-old Frenchman. It is one of the many drawings he has rendered of his imaginary city of Urville, which he has been meticulously drawing and describing since he was 12.

I have long wondered about the connection between the mind and the soul; what "are" we when our minds do not operate "normally"?

Anyway, I have little to add other than to suggest that you stop by his site and marvel at what a mind at play can create.

That looks like the Sears tower. Wouldn't it be freaky if all of this guy's pictures were actually drawings of Chicago, a city he had never seen? Spooky...

But, it's amazing either way.
