In the room above the convenience store in FWWM, the Man From Another Place states "This is a formica table"

Formica does not conduct electricity but is actually used as an insulator -- could the formica table be insulating the dwellers of the room above the convenience store?

I know - kind of out there but with less than 90 minutes to go until the finale, I am way overthinking things 🙂

EpicEsquire, it's perfectly plausible that all the strange little non-sequiturs have a very reasonable purpose and that those purposes are related to electricity or some science thing. 

For example, I was up late wondering if Bad Cooper raped Diane and Audrey primarily for their DNA so he could make tulpas.

This is our world now 😛

I think all the stuff we see as mundane - or even inexplicable - items are our way of translating all the weird stuff into things we can at least get our senses to process in some way.

We have no cultural referents for the Lodge stuff, so our brain substitutes something that looks more or less like it and that's what we see.  It's plausible enough because it relates to how we "see" stuff anyhow, particularly when we can't see something clearly, or our eyes or brain are damaged.

As in "A wrong guess is usually better/safer than a slow one".  If you want to see that in action, put a cucumber behind a cat and see what happens when it turns around and notices it.

We are cats and this show is a four-dimensional cucumber. Now that makes sense.

Aye, that's a good one.  I will tell my cats later.  I know the response I'm likely to get, though.
