We walk a delicate line, perpetuating Atreides (Siona) genes in our population
because that hides us from prescience. We carry the Kwisatz Haderach in that
bag! Willfulness created Muad'Dib. Prophets make predictions come true! Will
we ever again dare ignore our Tao sense and cater to a culture that hates chance
and begs for prophecy?

Odrade finds Murbella on the no-ship's practice floor, fighting a mech. She has rewired the controls so it simulates anger. Odrade accuses her of chasing an adrenaline high, but she says it was because she never thought she could be this good. Odrade reminds her of the price, the Bene Gesserit cornucopia can become pandora's box. Odrade tells her she still doesn't know what it means to be a Reverend Mother or what they want from her. Murbella realizes it wasn't her sexual abilities they wanted at all, Odrade reminds her that Sheeana mastered her abilities easily. Murbella realizes that the BG fear what she may do, she must make a choice between Duncan and The Sisterhood. She refuses to make that choice but Odrade will continue to train her, secretly hoping she will hold onto her love for Duncan and guide them into a new change.
