I have isolated the city-experience within me and have examined it closely. The
idea of a city fascinates me. The formation of a biological community without a
functioning, supportive social community leads to havoc. Whole worlds have
become single biological communities without an interrelated social structure
and this has always led to ruin. It becomes dramatically instructive under
overcrowded conditions. The ghetto is lethal. Psychic stresses of overcrowding
create pressures which will erupt. The city is an attempt to manage these
forces. The social forms by which cities make the attempt are worth study.
Remember that there exists a certain malevolence about the formation of any
social order. It is the struggle for existence by an artificial entity.
Despotism and slavery hover at the edges. Many injuries occur and, thus, the
need for laws. The law develops its own power structure, creating more wounds
and new injustices. Such trauma can be healed by cooperation, not by
confrontation. The summons to cooperate identifies the healer.
-The Stolen Journals
Moneo goes to Leto with news from the Tleilaxu who are anxious to get back in his good graces. They told Moneo that they acted as consultants for an Ixian project to make a mirror image cellular reconstruction of Malky inside the new Ixian machine that can conceal them from Leto. They deduce that this was Hwi's origins. He sends Moneo to summon Hwi and orders him to make sure nothing interferes with the delivery of a package of translations being delivered to Siona by the Guild. He tells Moneo that Adam was the one that plucked and ate of the apple first, from this he learned to put the blame on Eve, and this will help him with Hwi.
