TP:FWWM establishes that the Lodge entities can travel via telephone wires as they are associated with electricity. It is also evident that the Man From Another Place’s war whoop (“I sound like this”) is connected to this mode of transportation. Beyond the reference to the Indian American whoop in Twin Peaks, this might very well be a hint regarding the telegraphic, wave-like pattern of his voice (see the Red Room floor, with its chevron motif).
There is indeed little difference between the telephone wires of today and the telegraph wires of old, which were often connected to the development of the rail road. The telegraph used to be known as the “Singing Wire”. This refers both to “singing” of wires (caused by vortex shedding), and the transmission of communication (later voice) across electric cables
Here’s a very Lynchian documentary from 1951 about the arrival of electricity in rural farms, during which Bob (BOB?) and Judy (!) tell us everything about the advantages of the singing wires: Singing Wires – 1951
(The story of a 1950’s farm family whose work and play are transformed when their rural property is hooked up to the electricity grid)
