Garland





"Bobby, may I share something with you? 

A vision I had in my sleep last night—as distinguished from a dream, which is a mere sorting and cataloguing of the day’s events by the subconscious. 

This was a vision: fresh and clear as a mountain stream, the mind revealing itself to itself. 

In my vision I was on the veranda of a vast estate, 
a palazzo of some fantastic proportion. 



 
"The Porch is Neither Inside, 
Nor Outside  The House [The Lodge]"
- Tyler Durden



“The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. - Albert Pike

"There seemed to emanate from it a Light, from within this gleaming, radiant marble. 

I had known this place. 

I had, in fact, been born and raised there, and this was my first return—a reunion with the deepest wellsprings of my being. 

Wandering about, I noticed happily that The House had been immaculately maintained. 

There had been added a number of additional rooms, but in a way that blended so seamlessly with the original construction, one would never detect any difference. 

Returning to The House’s grand foyer, there came a knock at the door. 

My son was standing there. 

He was happy and carefree, clearly living a life of deep harmony and joy. 

We embraced—a warm and loving embrace, nothing withheld. 

We were, in this moment, one. 

My vision ended. 

I awoke with a tremendous feeling of optimism and confidence in You and Your Future. 

That was My Vision. It was You."





If it is "Coming into you..." or "coming inside [of] you...", that makes sense given that Windom Earl is using the anti-psychotic Haliperidol to
a) Interrogate Briggs
b) Enslave Leo "The Lion"
c) Cut Briggs off from The Spirit(s) of The Lodges and any divine help.
 
A couple of years after this, an X-Files episode ('Revelations') appeared which speculated on the same theme, that anti-psychotics, and Haiperidol specifically could successfully be used to block or suppress genuine spiritual experiences, the Phenomenology of The Divine.



Garland Briggs is easily the coequal most Holy resident of Twin Peaks after Laura herself (who is In The Ground, as Hawk notes.), along with The Log Lady (who lives in The Woods anyway, not the town, and is generally considered crazy - she's John The Baptist (she baptises Laura with The Spirit), he is Our Lady (that's why he is all in Blue and Identifies with Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (Judy Garland)






MIKE says of BOB's True Face "Few Can See it — The Gifted and The Damned "


Laura's Mother can see it — she's Gifted. 

That's why Leland has to drug her and she smokes so much (you see Spirits and Gods in Smoke.) 

And she begins talking backwards after this scene when she begins to channel EITHER Windom Earl OR (more likely) Annie from inside The Lodge


It therefore follows that Briggs should be able to see MIKE's True Face, as he is similar to BOB, but opposite — 

Maddie was Damned but Briggs is a SAINT

"And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth,
and gathered the vine of the earth and cast it into the great winepress..."
And the winepress was trodden without the city..."



Bobby Briggs :
Night, Laura.

Laura, The One :
Bye.

"...even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand
and six hundred furlongs.
And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, and seven angels..."

Robert, put out the cigarette.
 
"And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire,
and them that had gotten the victory over the beast
and over his image and over his mark
and over the number of his name,
stand on the sea of glass,
having the harps of God."
