So, I raise the question: Who is this Jumping Man who has been featured so prominently in the most minuscule amount of screen time? I originally conjectured that maybe the Jumping Man is MIKE ... I'm not so sure about that anymore. If the Jumping Man was birthed into Sarah Palmer ... And, since mother birthed BOB, who went from Mr Robertson to Leland Palmer to Dale Cooper ... And Sarah Palmer and Leland Palmer birthed Laura Palmer via The Fireman/???????/Giant ...
These are the groups of relationships I hope to see us all work on explaining. Why are these beings in their particular group together? What are their reasons for existing and the driving motivations of each group? Below is a really rough sketch of something that's way bigger than I alone can figure out.
Dale Cooper (good)
Laura Palmer (orb)
Andy Brennanreasons for existing and driving motivations:
To put out the Fire.
BOB (Mr Robertson / Leland Palmer / Dale Cooper)reasons for existing and driving motivations:
After the great Fire of the atomic bomb blast, a rift between two worlds was opened and Mother spewed eggs of evil onto earth.
MIKE (we've never actually seen the real face of MIKE. not like we've seen the real face of BOB. at least not knowingly. why not? who's MIKE? If we're going to get some answers about Judy, we should surely get some answers about MIKE, right? He's the biggest presence we know almost nothing about.)
Little Man From Another Place
Evolution of the Armreasons for existing and driving motivations:
was MIKE originally birthed by Mother, then, 'saw the face of God', 'cut off the arm', and is now the Water to put out the Fire?
Mrs Chalfont and sonreasons for existing and driving motivations:
Unknown but her son's pointy nose mask ties in with the next group.
Mrs Chalfont's Son
Woodsman (who seemed to 'call' the Moth-Frog into the young girl's mouth)reasons for existing and driving motivations:
"This is the water. And this is the well. Drink full and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes and dark within." (and note the neighing of horses at the end of Part 8 - an audio cue that correlates to the Pale Horse and Sarah Palmer)

Dale Cooper (evil)
Chet Desmond? (does he really belong in this group?)
Lil (does she really belong in this group?)
Monica Belluccireasons for existing and driving motivations:
investigating and completely drawn into ... something bigger than they knew.
Margaret Lanterman, The Log Lady
Deputy Tommy 'Hawk' Hillreasons for existing and driving motivations:
Who else am I forgetting and what group of relationships/motivations do they belong in?
