Glad you like that summary. Have you seen the new movie?

good tho I felt it neglected bringing in that understanding the planetary ecology was a key, virtually neglected the Imperial planetary ecologist, kynes, whom understood and went Freman. As Paul did it too with his prescience.

Leto II saw it in the golden path, that's the dependency on spice's bottleneck for space travel needed to remain. The worms couldn't be native to arrakis. Necessary for his transformation to hold the Empire together. A key. Hmm I wonder if that had anything to do with the planetary ecoligist's name of Kynes?

And I think it had something to do with the presence at the end of time that Paul left the golden path or and Leto ii went on to develop the hidden prescient gene. Who seeded arrakis? guess we'll never know.

leto2 wasnt concerned about holding the empire together so much as teaching mankind a lesson their bones would remember.

that was his golden path
a way to avoid the war at the end of the humanity wiping mankind out

his rule was harsh in the interest of reaching a persience invisible human as quickly as possible
took him 3500 years after he took the bene gesserit breeding program away from them

kynes was singlely interest in transforming arrakis away from desert
he had nearly all fremen harvesting dew and collecting it in underground vaults for this use when enough had been gathered


havnt seen the new film

a ton of shot footage didnt make the film as released
so im waiting for a directors cut...

wow, that was pure synchronicity on the Blade Runner theme,
as I had not read the above posts before spontaneously posting mine,
and this awesome drone show video had just randomly come up on an ad break
during a Dollemore video i was watching :toker1:

Herbert did not get any love for his book Destination Void, I did not think it was all that bad. Cannot say if anyone movieized it or not. More I think about it I probably read that 40 years ago, so it maybe shit, if I reread it.
