Subject: OAM quote
From: (David Larson)
Date: 1990-11-11, 12:36

When Mike speaking through the OAM on the episode of 11/3 recites:
"through the darkness
 the future past
 the magician longs to see
 one chance out between two worlds
 fire walk with me,
 Oh ...,
 but then i saw the face of God
 and was purified."

 how does Cooper know to start reciting the quote at the exact very
moment the Mike does?

What is the quote?  Where does it come from?

When Mike says that BOB is his familiar, it is a spiritual term.
Websters defines familiar as:
   a spirit often embodied in an animal and held to attend and serve
   or guard a person.

Well thats my two-cents,  I hope I have not duplicated a hundred other
