The "disturbances" in the signal could be all sorts of things. Lynch is a workaholic, and he has a lot of interests that could be pulling him in various directions at any given time. Painting, sculpting, photography, music, and of course TM and the related traveling and speaking that he does as a TM ambassador. Then there's stuff like art exhibits, art books, books like his new memoir, interviews, promotional events, etc. He recently acted in Lucky (starring Harry Dean Stanton). There are also film remasters and various things like that. He's got various business dealings, and I hope most of that is handled for him by others, though as I understand it he has to personally OK any official Twin Peaks product. All of this is in addition to regular family stuff, and basic life things that we all deal with. Though he's supposed to be reclusive, it seems he travels pretty frequently. How many countries or states did he visit last year? How many functions did he attend? How many nights did he not sleep at home in LA? How many people did he meet? He might not like to go out to movies and parties and the like, but for someone who says he has "a bit of agoraphobia", he sure does get up to a lot of stuff.
I meant to write a short post, but the more that I wrote, the more I realized just how ridiculously busy this man must be. There's an interesting bit from the Guardian interview that came out today:

Throughout the book, and in his own telling, it is clear that Lynch’s most enduring passion is work. When his current wife, Emily Stofle, an actor who appeared in Inland Empire and Twin Peaks: The Return, became pregnant, he warned her that film would still come first. Their daughter was born when Lynch was 66, and Stofle 35. “After I had Lula, he disappeared into his work, which is what he does… he works and that’s where he gets his joy,” she tells McKenna.
I ask Lynch how he manages to inspire such loyalty, despite such strict rationing of human contact – from his collaborators, friends, even his exes. He drops his cigarette on the floor and stubs it out with a boot before answering. “I like to have some people around. If I was totally alone I think I’d get funny, and not in a humorous way.”
As a father and husband he has often been absent, he concedes. “You gotta be selfish. And it’s a terrible thing. I never really wanted to get married, never really wanted to have children. One thing leads to another and there it is.”
That sounds like regret, until he elaborates. “I did what I had to do. There could have been more work done. There are always so many interruptions.”
