Conlang to better understand concepts and facts

Does anyone on this forum use a personal conlang (pictorial/glyph-like, maybe?) to understand facts or concepts? Something like a mind map but with a more extensive vocabulary of expressing relationships or links between ideas/nodes. Would love to know, thanks.

I use pictos from AAC autism communication resources and some of my own annotations but it doesn’t go very far into language territory. I use hand gestures extensively when talking to teach language. I notice that Jordon Peterson uses hand gestures extensively to help communicate complex ideas too. In general, I suggest not to be limited by static 2D images because you need animation for it to be much use

I just read about it in a couple of natural languages if I’m trying to get a different perspective for better understanding… personal conlang seems a bit overkill.
