Hiking Twin Peaks: An Experimental!? Guide The Appendix

Twin Peaks’ Principles Season 1


Context is important and it is not important. If wisdom [Truth + Goodness] works universally, then details lessen in value as the core light steers steadily. Thus, if you review the Twin Peaks’ Principles and consider some of the characters they originate from, you may be inclined to dismiss them based upon a character’s immoralities and abnormalities. I recommend that you do not do this, which is why I have not included the source of many lines. I muse that the minds behind Twin Peaks use absurd messengers like life itself. May these principles enlighten the dynamic between the “twin” peaks of your Life and your Death, your Light and your Dark, your Love and your Hate and all other dualities that swim inside and outside your Self. Hiking Twin Peaks is an “Experimental!? Guide” after all. Considering that your life is an experiment, Twin Peaks’ Principles may yield you desirable results whether or not you have hypothesized and envisioned them. These tools carry vision. Carry the tools and let the vision carry you. Enjoy and apply what seems like wisdom [E-Prime].

If you do not enjoy coffee, or cannot drink it, please consider another beverage that provides comfort, strength, focus and generally improves your mood and abilities.  This rule of substitution applies to any other principles that suggest particular consumption.
