According the theory of Zen, clamoring for Agent Cooper will only result in no Agent Cooper coming to us. If we agree Dougie and say, “We are perfectly fine with Dougie” then Lynch will bring back Cooper, but only if we don’t say we want him. It is important to never care too much. This is the life lesson, Lynch is doing by things like repeating the same dialogue over and over and creating long time-wasting scenes. It when we don’t ask for things that they come back to us.
