TWIN PEAKS AND THE BLUE ROSE by Rocko Van Buren

We here at the Daily Dirt Diaspora family of websites are proud to bring you this illuminating Guest Post about some of the more obscure elements of the magnificent Lynch/Frost creation Twin Peaksby our brilliant friend Rocko Van Buren. Enjoy! – YOPJ

TWIN PEAKS, BLUE ROSE, AND THE UFO PHENOMENON

In the first few moments of Part 12 of the ongoing Showtime television event, Twin Peaks: The Return, the audience finally learns definitively what “Blue Rose” means in the context of Dale Cooper, Gordon Cole and the rest of the FBI. This exposition comes in a scene with FBI deputy director Gordon Cole, Albert Rosenfield and agent Tammy Preston sipping fine wine while seated in a private room at a hotel in Buckhorn, South Dakota, surrounded by red curtains (reminiscent of the mysterious Red Room itself), Albert explains Blue Rose is a secret extension of the now-closed, real-world Project Blue Book conducted by the U.S. Air Force to investigate UFO phenomena.

“THE OWLS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM”

MORE ON THE OWLS

Previously, in Episode 5 of Season One, Cooper joined Hawk and Truman on a hike that takes them past the Log Lady’s home on their way to the cabin where Jacques Renault and Leo had sex with Laura just before her death. Log Lady (Margaret Lanterman) tells the trio they are “late,” then invites them for a cup of tea, after which she describes what her log saw on the night of Laura’s death. Among the information the log provides about that night is the phrase, “The owls are moving.” [Margaret believes the log is inhabited by the spirit of her late husband, who died in a fire]

OWLS IN THE UFO COMMUNITY

Owls have long been associated with UFO phenomena and abduction events, synchronicity and other high weirdness, such as the Mothman sightings of West Virginia in the 1960s and 70s, the abduction encounters of Whitley Strieber in his book Communion (among others), and the mysterious rituals performed by the rich and powerful “elites” in Bohemian Grove. It is not clear when the first modern association was made between owls and UFOs, but owls have been connected in many cultures throughout history with knowledge and wisdom, and also have been believed to be signs of good fortune, or conversely, as unlucky omens and harbingers of death.

One of the most prominent researchers associated with the subject of owls and UFOs is Mike Clelland, author of The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee, in which he describes his own abduction experiences and association with owls, and shares similar accounts based on interviews with numerous other individuals who have experienced owl associations in conjunction with UFO or alien encounters.

DOPPELGANGERS, SHADOW-SELVES AND THE LODGES

As noted earlier, our first introduction to the Lodges in the original Twin Peaks TV series comes in Episode 10 of Season 2, immediately before Maj. Briggs disappears..

ON TULPAS

. . .

In his now-defunct blog, Rigorous Intuition, writer Jeff Wells collects several stories of tulpas in a number of posts, such as this excerpt written by Alexandra David-Neel and included in Wells’ essay titled ‘Planet of the Lost Children (Part One)’:

THE CONCLUSION OF THE RETURN

It remains to be seen what final answers, if any, the conclusion of Twin Peaks: The Return will provide. We have not even touched upon Sarah Palmer’s visions of a white horse, also referenced by the Woodsmen in Part 8, nor the importance of the nuclear explosion, The Experiment/Mother (and it’s physical similarity to the idea of the alien grey).

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (ELFIS.net), organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
