Meaninglessness

“There is meaning in dreaming, but there is also dreaming in meaning.” -Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep

I noticed last night that the frog-bug inside its shell glitches, shakes and slows down like a lodge scene “shrouded in the temporality of fantasy.” BOB also appears glitchy inside his shell. Surrealist objects for Lynch are not just a complicated metaphor and brain-blood flow-state; they are waking dreams. Untainted by reason, they are fragments of real space altered to solicit the viewers' unconscious desires. Moreover, like the mind — a ‘found-subject’ — these strange, altered ‘found-objects’ aren’t categorizable, aren’t placeable; they do not make sense. We don’t know what to do with them, and so we dream outside the box, and subject and object blend into something surreal.
