This was really interesting and eye-opening, especially the point about some characters being masks for others and for Lynch himself, but I think it misses the deeper point by making it be simply a commentary on TV, because of the fact that David Lynch himself is a mask, and electricity doesn't just make the Television set work, but his actual physical brain. I do think he's right on Lynch's views on the "unified field" and balancing good and evil, but he should have gone deeper into that.

He also doesn't mention how Jacoby's whole "gold shovel" and "dig yourself out of the shit" is a direct reference to alchemy

This movie has reportedly been delayed indefinitely. I wonder what it would have revealed.

New trailer for 'Mulan' on Disney+ shows she is the 'woman in red'. A classic children's story about how a woman can compete with if not out preform men in combat.

How is the "soul transferred" in movies.. what is the typical mechanism

Eg.. freaky friday the switch..

Right off the top of my head the room usually shakes (which is usually only perceivable to them) and the lights may go out. When they come back on the two people will have swapped bodies.
There are other things that happen around the moment they swap but the main mechanism appears to be that two people are discontent with the way they are living, usually wishing to be in the shoes of someone else or have them understand things from their perspective and then something happens (the lights go out and come back on, they go to sleep and wake up in another body etc) and they have swapped bodies.

There also seems to be an entity that is responsible for the initial switch when it does occur. Some sort of 'fairy of body swapping or perspective(s)' (for the lack of a better term) that is eventually seen and revealed at the end that plays a part on granting the wish of being in another persons body and life.

The eventual outcome in most fictional stories is that the person who got their body and lives swapped (its usually two but it could be just one) realizes that they had what they really wanted in their original body and life and want to go back.

American Dad also has a episode where they cover this.

Some TV Tropes articles:

“Bequeathed Power“
Quote
Before a character dies or before performing a Heroic Sacrifice, they give all of or at least some of their power to the person they have the closest relationship to. Expect the receiver to say that they didn't have to do this while sobbing. The character who gave this power is often a mentor of the receiver.

“Fusion Dance”
Quote
The Composite — A and B merge; the end result C has aspects of both the characters that were part of the merge, including All Your Powers Combined and a fused personality. May also be a Combining Mecha or a Mix-and-Match Critter. For example, two fused fighters in Dragon Ball Z.

“Energy Donation”
Quote
One character willingly gives some of their Ki, Life Energy, Mana, etc. to another. The donor may be doing this to recharge them when they're exhausted or dying, or to increase their power beyond its limits for some great challenge.

“Super Empowering”
Quote
Simply put, the ability to give someone else an ability. It can be a super power, magic, or even oddball abilities.

There's five variants of this:

* Characters that are so powerful they can give fragments of their power to others. — Genies, gods, really powerful wizards.

* A character can gift the entirety of their own power to another, either permanently if about to die, or temporarily.

* Supercharge someone else's existing powers with a Combined Energy Attack or Super Mode much like a living Amplifier Artifact.

* A character can turn another person into one of their own kind, powers and all. Usually it's a Viral Transformation, be it a vampire or werewolf's bite, an Emergency Transformation spell, a blood donation or a witch training an apprentice.

* Sufficiently Advanced Aliens, The Fair Folk, or someone similar can tinker with someone's existence, genetics, soul, or similar to grant them abilities. Less advanced organizations can make similar attempts (Cyborgs are expensive) with less chance of success.

Expand the question to how are powers transferred

Through some sort of sacrifice(?) Even if no one is killed in the process and all that happens is the 'sacrificing' of someones life and or perspective to become and live from another persons, you could still say that is a sacrifice of some kind.

They give up what they have to get what they ask for. They make a deal with another person who also wants to give up what they have to get what they ask for. The two (usually two but can also be one) people make a 'pact' or exchange with each other where they offer up their lives to each other to become each other.
In the case of it being just one person, they still give up their life and perspective to the 'universe' or usually some other wish granting entity that gives them what they ask for.

You can also make pacts and deals with an 'average human' too? That may seem like a rhetorical question given that you can still sign documents and other related legal paperwork and be 'bound' by them till the terms are met or expired.

Is this more metaphor or literal? If you could control electricity like this then you could also control the two other modes that 'el ectricity' is apart of.

Oh, now that you point this out I remember in the Watchman series, the first time that Dr. Manhattan is seen after his initial death is in the cafeteria where he manifests along with an electric blue cloud of electrical and magnetic energy.

Electricity played a role in Dr. Manhattan existence. Both in what was the death of him (which was actually when he was born) and in his eventual manifestation and what he can do while in that form.

The Avatar (cartoon) series also has an ability specific to 'fire benders' where the more elite and skilled practitioners can manipulate and generate lightning from inside themselves and project it outward as a weapon.

'Frankenstein', also related to Prometheus somehow, is 'brought to life' with lightning as well. This could be seen as transferring of powers to something that would otherwise not have any through electricity (lightning).

Related old Nick quotes:
Quote
"Think of what we are taught about magnetic polarity and how opposites attract, now realize electricity is magnetism and jow dc differs from ac and ipso facto why tesla was a genius"

"Well done sir, you are correct, ALL energy is electromagnetic in nature. Few understand electricty and magnetism are inexorably linked, even in the comic books, storm and magneto should be interchangeable, alas they are not."

So gravity is really density. Electricity is magnetism. Opposites attract and all energy is electromagnetic in nature. If you can control one of the three modes you can control the others and they all exist because of light. I feel like I'm missing something to put all this together. . . Maybe that missing thing is the practical application of this information.

Electricity is how the entities in the Twin Peaks universe manifest in the real world

You would need to invert ionic polarity at will. Or have 25 years plus of esoteric practice with a top 1 percent instructor

And they use music to save everything that exists. At least that's the impression given from the trailer and title lol. Remember 'Excalibur', less of a lyric, more of a song?
