It's not my theory but I love it.

A tulpa doesn't have to be just a person. What if the Twin Peaks we've seen so far is a tulpa. This doesn't mean it's a dream. It is a hollow replica that the dreamer lives inside of. You could still deliver a key to it but it's not real. It would take a monumental force of mind to make and sustain a tulpa the size of a town. You might have to have someone permanently trapped and thinking it into existence in order to keep it going (Audrey!) but it wouldn't be perfect by any means - there would be all sorts of error in the fabric of the tulpa. 

The residents are starting to realise that something is not right but it might take someone who can't see the illusion - someone without eyes - to really see through the deceptions.

Also- if Mulholland Drive had been made into an 18 hour TV show, this is about the time 'Betty' would be coming out of her fantasy and into the real world as Diane.

A very interesting thought.

Can't wait for the last two episodes.

I don't fully agree with you...but....

Going back to Part 8, the Woodsmen made the entire of listening audience of a radio station go to sleep.  We all paid attention to the girl who became host to the frog/moth creature.  But what happened to the others?   

Did the same thing happen in Twin Peaks?  Has something happened to a large portion of its population?

What if it happened to the entire world?  Maybe the sleeping girl is the Dreamer and everything since then was her dream.

A similar idea is used in Vurt, with the dreamer being a woman named Celia Hobart.

Wow, Bob, wow.

This tulpa  idea is plausible given that we've already seen what on a fundamental level amounts to Twin Peaks' shadow self doppelgänger in Deer Meadows.

Then how would you explain the fact, that city has been around for 100+ years? It was mentioned in Secret History of Twin Peak.

At the time of creation (the town and people) possess the memories of what came before. 

 Think about Diane's tulpa. She was, presumably, created ~20 years ago, but she possessed the memories of Diane born, say, 50 years ago.

A couple of things:

1) based on what we know, tulpas exist in the real world. So, if Twin Peaks were a tulpa, where would it be located in the real world? And would the original town be masked somehow?

2) If the entire show turns about to be a tulpa/dream somehow, I will be pissed.

And, generally speaking, I think fans have gone a little tulpa-mad. There's not a tulpa lurking around every corner.

Definitley concur.

Just suppose it is the whole world.  Take a read of Century Rain, which has a similar idea.

Me too, possibly.  It all depends on how they handle it.

Are you sure?  You must have seen several people in your life who look like yourself.  I know I have, the handsome devils.  😉
