[4]           “Giant The deepest and most ancient meaning of the myth of the giant alludes to the supposed existence of an immense, primordial being, whose sacrifice creation was brought forth.  This cosmogonic myth was very common among primitive and ancient peoples…Now, the giant is, in himself, neither good nor bad, but merely a quantitative amplification of the ordinary ; hence, as the case may be, there are some legendary giants who are protectors and others who are aggressive…This sense of the giant as ‘that which surpasses’ human stature (here symbolic of power and strength), is also indicative of the broad significance of the giant. He may be an image of the ‘Terrible Father’, arising from childhood memoires— children see their parents as giants— or an image of the unconsciousness, the ‘dark side’ of the personality menacing the Jungian Selbst (21), etc. It is interesting to note that in folklore the giant is tutelary in character : he is usually the defender of the common people against the overlord, upholding their liberties and rights.  Without generalization, one implication of the giant may be said to be the personification of collective Man— as implied in the maxim ‘united we stand’— or of the life of a community (16).” [Giant as hero of the common man in Twin Peaks sprung forth by Cooper, hero of Twin Peaks. [LT: DMT: HQT: WRQ].]

[5]           Dwarf A symbol of ambivalent meaning. Like dactyls, elves and gnomes, the dwarf is the personification of those forces which remain virtually outside of the orbit of consciousness [Dancer at the Black Lodge: Synchronicity here follows, for Dwarf fits as “deity” and Bob is the “demon”? WRQ]. In folklore and mythology, the dwarf appears as a mischievous being, with certain childish characteristics befitting its small size, but also as a protect like the Cabiri—…For Jung, they may be regarded as the guardians of the threshold of the unconscious (32). Now, smallness may be taken also as a sign of deformity, of the abnormal and inferior; this is the explanation, then, of the ‘dancing Shiva’ appearing as an image of a deity dancing upon the prostrate body of a demon-dwarf who symbolizes the ‘blindness of life’, or the ignorance of man (his ‘pettiness’). Victory over this demon signifies true wisdom (60).”
