This is the awe-inspiring universe of magic: There are no atoms, only waves and
motions all around. Here, you discard all belief in barriers to understanding.
You put aside understanding itself. This universe cannot be seen, cannot be
heard, cannot be detected in any way by fixed perceptions. It is the ultimate
void where no preordained screens occur upon which forms may be projected. You
have only one awareness here -- the screen of the magi: Imagination! Here, you
learn what it is to be human. You are a creator of order, of beautiful shapes
and systems, an organizer of chaos.

Tensions between Duncan and Lucilla have reached a dangerous peak and Teg decides it needs to stop for the sake of Duncan's safety. Lucilla admits that she doesn't know what Taraza wants Duncan to do on Rakis but she guesses that it has something to do with the girl there who can control the worms. The Bene Gesserit muct cultivate that talent. Duncan concludes that Lucilla is to imprint him so they have a hold on him that will prevent him from escaping. Teg calculates that one of Lucilla's orders is to make Duncan irresistable to women. He thinks that maybe the breeding mistresses need his ancient human genes. Teg has been outside and Burzmali has left secret marks to which Teg has replied to arrange an rendezvou. They update and commit to memory a map of the local area from the library. Lucilla tells Teg that her failure to imprint Duncan is on his head. TEg tells her he did what was required of him.
