  1. The thing which I love about Dune, at least the original first books, is that they all have a message and deeper meaning. The first book warns about having your whole civilization dependent on one raw material. This is an obvious reference to our civilizations dependency for fossil fuels. It also touches the theme of the power of religious fervor, which is later explained deeper in Dune: Messiah. The second/third books warn against organized religion and it´s succeptibility to corruption. How the original message can be lost. How in the end the very priests who worship Paul
  2. http://scienceblogs.com/grrlscientist/2007/08/attack_of_the_evil_monkeys_fro.php Yep you got it. A group of 300 monkees forced the people in the region to survive on famine relief by a combination of sabotage attacking all women and children, so the farms could no longer be properly sustained and forced them into starvation,... Well duh,....if I would want to rob someone I would go after a woman's purse rather than a man's wallet just out of a feeling of self preservation. These monkees got game! Despite their new probl
  3. The Protagonist: The main character of Dune, the first novel, is Paul Atreides, a young man of noble birth who comes to realize (or believe) that he is the prophesied leader/saviour of a group of people (the Fremen). Apart from that, he gains political power and influence throughout the Universe as a whole. (He becomes Emporer, in fact.) Although later books in the series extend thousands of years beyond Paul's lifetime, it still deals with his descendants, and direct influences from his time, so he can still be seen as an influential figure in the series as a whole, even though he's not, s
  4. How could Moridin carry the addiction with him? The presence of Saa shows that the addiction is not a mental one but a physical addiction. Such as when a coke addict snorts his pupils will dilate and muscles around the eyes will relax and in some people the eyes become bloodshot. Since the Saa are present in his eyes it is only natural to assume it is physical. And so Rand would be trading his slightly battered and crippled body for that of a drug wrecked junkie one. A pretty bad trade if you ask me. Also considerring how fearful most of the other Forsaken are of the True Power, an
  5. Wouldn't his "new" body even though it has two hands be wrecked by it's addiction to the True Power? From what I understood it's a bodily addiction, hence the saa in the eyes. Meaning when Rand takes the body, and no longer regularly supplies it with the True Power, it will go into withdrawal. And from what we know the True Power is the most addictive thing in Randland, supposedly more than the One Power. Seeing how we see men and women lose the will to live and/or commit suicide after losing touch to the one power how do you think Rand's body is going to feel after losing contact to the True
  6. I think all nations in East Africa are mostly muslim, with the exception of Ethiopia which is 50/50, and Sudan which has a 20% minority or so? Since I doubt the peoples of Somalia, Egypt, Tanzania, Sudan, Eritrea, Djibouti are mostly Christian in their makeup?
  7. You know I don't disagree with the code but why did you choose Bushido code? Isn't that the code that calls for suicide at the slightest dishonor to oneself, family or noble lord? Hence even why the Japanese had so little qualms about the Kamikaze attacks seeing that Bushido code encouraged suicide and suicidal behavior. So I think if the warder code prohibits suicide it would be anything but like the Bushido code.
  8. I call bullsh*t on that post dripping with prejudice and bigotry. The world would be matriarchal if not for the RCC? I would like some of the stuff you are smoking. Or is it that without the RCC all nations including India, China, Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Northern Africa, Eastern Africa as well as quite a few other places would be matriarchal? Somehow I severely doubt this, seeing as these places aren't even christian yet still seem to be on the top list of most sexist nations. So forgive me for the outlandish claim that the two may be unrelated. Also if Northern Europe had kept
  9. The Death Star II was in a very low orbit. According to geometric studies, the construction site was at an altitude which put its orbit within a double-radius of the moon's centre. A likely estimate for the moon's radius is 5200km, based on the surface gravity and realistic ranges of planetary composition. Assuming this scale, the orbital geometry is such that the battle station is only another 2000km above the surface. The Death Star II remained stationary above the surface facility which generated its protective shield. In order to remain synchronous with the surface, the station's orbi
  10. ehhhh. People it wasn´t just the Deathstar II. Remember a good portion of the Imperial fleet also got turned winto debris? And what were they orbiting around,...right endor. Meaning where ould all the Debris of the Imperial executive class ships rain down on,...Endor.
  11. The only defence on the planet. The shield powered by the Imperial Regiments, was blown up by the rebels on the floor remember,.. so they could land their ships,.....leaving the planet defenceless.
