Tenuous theory. Breaks the 4th wall.

This is a tenuous theory. In fact, it isn't even serious. It's more of an observation which links two scenes together which results in a statement. Everything I'm about to say is what I believe to be coincidence. However, this is just a bit of fun and I am not trying to convince anyone of anything as all accuracy as been avoided in my efforts. (I think 430 has already been solved?)

EPISODE 1: Remember 430. Richard and Linda. Two birds one Stone. 


430 minutes? 7 hours 10 minutes? 

Episode 7, 10 minutes in.

Sherrif Truman has a conversation with Doc Hayward. DoppleCoop visits Audrey is one topic of conversation which fueled theory that Richard is DoppleCoops son. Though we do now know the official mother of Richard. 

If you subscribe to the idea that DoppleCoop sexually assaulted Audrey and that Richard is his Son, then why not subscribe to the idea of Linda being his twin sister. Two birds one stone. The clue to Richard and Linda is 430 minutes into the show (this is not accurate as not all episodes are 1 hour long, but it is funny how these two scenes can be considered to match up, based on viewer theory).

There is no endgame here. Simply clues which lead to conclusions. 

I await your comments admitting me to be the supreme overlord of TP theory.

Nice. Lynch sure loves this kind of mathematical beauty.

I like it because it fits in the same scheme of the theory that the numbers Coop saw in the mauve room at the socket, first a 15 and then a 3 coincided with his getting shot through in episode 3 and speculatively again in episode 15.  There may be something to this self-referential codifying. 

I wonder if this has to do with Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem... Self reference is the key to his proof.  i.e.  "This statement is a lie", true or false?  

Or more maddeningly, "Yields falsehood when preceded by its quotation" yields falsehood when preceded by its quotation.

Well, 7 hours and 10 minutes would actually get you into episode 8, honestly.

Episode 1 starts at minute 0. Episode 2 starts at minute 60. So episode 8 starts at minute 420.

(Please no reference to cannabis).

Episode 8, 10th minute in : Mr. C disappears after getting shot by Ray. Two birds one stone? One shot 2 kills? (Mr.C and BOB) However, IIRC, there were 2 shots fired by Ray...

First post here, love this forum, lots to read.
