The Major says they just scan for junk from space. And he gets this
strange message for Cooper. I'm not about to buy space critters as a
useful theory, so it must be from somewhere else. Since the message
was already delivered to Cooper, the fact that it got picked up on
the Major's gear was probably an acidental side-effect. Or not.

Psychic phenomina aren't all that farfetched. Consider that at least
3 people have had visions of BOB. This isn't your run of the mill (sic)
kind of thing, so something is going on up there.

Well, Cooper's ex-partner isn't BOB. That doesn't mean he isn't the killer.
Which is a theory I doubt, now that I think about it some more.

I tend to agree. I get the feeling that Lynch's solution will not be
supernatural, but it will be pretty sordid.
