Much more than expected

What started as some background reading, of rather listening, to get more context and with that enjoyment out of the new Dune movie, turned into a month long binge of all six Dune books.

This plunge into the Dune saga has been gripping and thought provoking. At their core the universe, characters and events created by Frank Herbert are imaginable. That’s what makes this story so compelling.

A recurring theme of the books are Mentat projections. This story itself is nothing else than a prime projections of what humanity might look like when we achieve Elon Musk’s impatiently awaited status as a multi planetary species.

The depth of this projection is astonishing. The psychological and philosophical musings add to the richness of the story although they sometimes become self indulgent and even tedious.

I feel like I have shared so much in explicit and alluded to sharing of other memory that my own perspective on self reflection has likely been enhanced. I will not be surprised if the ripple effect of the books ideas will stay with me for a while.

I sincerely hope that our species will mature faster though than in this story and we will not need divine tyrants to goad us towards prosperity.

I paid a significant price in terms of time invested to take this story in. But I’m confident that this investment will mature well.
