*Arrakis teaches the attitude of the knife — chopping off what's incomplete
and saying: "Now it's complete because it's ended here."

**A world is supported by four things ... the learning of the wise, the
justice of the great, the prayers of the righteous and the valor of the
brave. But all of these are as nothing ... without a ruler who knows the art
of ruling. Make that the science of your tradition!

**Power tends to isolate those who hold too much of it. Eventually, they
lose touch with reality... and fall.

**Muad'Dib's teachings have become the playground of scholastics, of the
superstitious and the corrupt. He taught a balanced way of life, a
philosophy with which a human can meet problems arising from an
ever-changing universe. He said humankind is still evolving, in a process
which will never end. He said this evolution moves on changing principles
which are known only to eternity. How can corrupted reasoning play with such
an essence?

Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic
forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as
the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively
in the interests of the ruling class — whether that class be hereditary
royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy.

**You will learn the integrated communication methods as you complete the
next step in your mental education. This is a gestalten function which will
overlay data paths in your awareness, resolving complexities and masses of
input from the mentat index-catalogue techniques which you have already
mastered. **Your initial problem will be the breaking tensions arising from
the divergent assembly of minutiae/data on specialized subjects. Be warned.
Without mentat overlay integration, you can immersed in the Babel Problem,
which is the label we give to the omnipresent dangers of achieving wrong
combinations from accurate information.
Is your religion real when it costs you nothing and carries no risk? Is your
religion real when you fatten upon it? Is your religion real when you commit
atrocities in its name? Whence comes your downward degeneration from the
original revelation?

Most civilization is based on cowardice. It's so easy to civilize by
teaching cowardice. You water down the standards which would lead to
bravery. You restrain the will. You regulate the appetites. You fence in the
horizons. You make a law for every movement. You deny the existence of
chaos. You teach even the children to breathe slowly. You tame.

Spike, for the next time you go riding on your motorcycle... lol  This is a
Warhammer 40k tech-priest quote...

When uttering the incantation, mark well that the rod is upon and not within
the intake. The second incantation should not be uttered until all the fumes
have come forth, then the way shall be clear for the sacred words to
penetrate unto the heart of the engine. If the mounting be hot say the third
rune, if it be cold the fourth rune is more appropriate. For then the wrath
of the engine will be aroused...*
