That is not what I mean, the connection I am suggesting is that all three deal with dual states, doppelgangers, split states of mind, call it what you will. Not that the characters actually meet up in some ethereal plane, or any where else. The world I mean is the personal one that their characters enter, in some cases by mental stress or by supernatural means. They experience a delusional world (sometimes of escape), this is what is common in all three, not that they connect in any way or live on the same street or whatever.
Diane/Betty and Fred/Pete are obvious. In Twin Peaks lots of characters experience dual states of mind/personalty . Leland and Coop/ Bob, Agent Denis/Denise as a man dressing as a woman, Ben Horne/General Lee, Nadine reverting to childhood, Albert Rosenfeld from nasty to nice, Laura's two lives, Jacobi's different coloured specs show a split down the middle, even the title Twin Peaks shows duplicity, etc.etc. the list goes on. The common thread is the duality of the characters personalities and/or mental states.
