picture words

In the recent reading the images interspersed between the pages seem to be more disconnected with text. I have yet to decide what importance to give to these images, whether they represent the idiosyncratic mind of the author(s) or Square. The scalpels on page 163 surely display a focus of Square’s, but the protractor seems out of place. The image on the adjacent page is more or less unintelligible to an untrained eye. Does this mean Square understands these sketches and thinks symbolically through these images? Or are they a symbol of his confusion and inability to articulate his thoughts and emotions?
