Ampoliros wrote:Pg 33 -Passengers in the common area are talking about the news of Paul’s death. How did they know if Jessica just
found out? Why isn’t Jessica surprised and angered? (Gurney’s spy network should be shot)
Pg 34 -‘Rapt Pupil’ isn’t the phrase ‘apt pupil’?
-Jessica and Gurney see a Way-kool steward distributing Bronso’s tract. Let’s not investigate it yet…right after
someone in the same bar was killed in a knife fight for arguing the same subject. Amazing Guild security…
Ampoliros wrote:Pg 37-38-Quickly Ruined by Stilgar’s execution of Mohaim, which we are told was awesome. KJA apparently forgets
that Paul trained the Fedayken to resist voice, instead he has Stilgar gag Mohaim.
Ampoliros wrote:Pg 42. -Apparently the VIP landing pad is in the middle of a huge crowd at the public landing port.
-Senator Amidala almost assassinated on the landing pad by explosion.

Ampoliros wrote:Pg 45 -Leto and Ghanima “would never know their father…just political pawns.” (Jessica’s thoughts.)
-Alia suggests that Ghanima was named in honor of Harah, not for the fact that she was gained from losing his
wife to childbirth and politics.
Ampoliros wrote:Pg 48 -Jessica doesn’t know her parentage (OM much KJA? She knows the Baron is her father.)
Ampoliros wrote: -“I write what is true about Muad’dib, or what should be true. Some critics accuse me of distorting the facts and
writing shameless misinformation…Let these critics return in a thousand years and look at history; then see if they
dismiss my work as propaganda”

Ampoliros wrote:Pg 77 -Tupile Alliance asks for Landsraad representation. KJA doesn’t know what the fuck Tupile is obviously. He thinks
Paul gave them amnesty and the right to return. NO, HE PROMISED NOT TO SEEK TUPILE SO IT WOULD REMAIN A
HIDDEN SANCTUARY FOR EXILED HOUSES.

–St. Alia of the Knife.

Ampoliros wrote:Pg 87 -Alia wears water rings in her hair to show she is Fremen. Iirc, water rings in hair is a Fremen sign of betrothal/marriage.
Ampoliros wrote:Pg 93 -Alia is shipping copies of a “better” “revised” edition of Irulan’s book.
Ampoliros wrote: -Irulan’s “Official histories will easily overwhelm Bronso’s lies by brute force if necessary.” Unless Brian is now
secretly an OH, this is massive irony, no?
Ampoliros wrote:Pg 104-Paul has no dedicated tutor (except Duncan, Gurney, Hawat…)No mention of Mentat Studies.
Ampoliros wrote:Everyone lies, every day of his life. The effect of such untruths is a matter of degree, of purpose, and
of benefit. Falsehoods are more numerous than the organisms in all the seas in the galaxy. Why then are we Tleilaxu
perceived as being deceptive and untrustworthy, while others are not?”

Ampoliros wrote: Pg 133 Bronso has Ixian Keys that will get him past all the Guild security.
He doesn’t need them since no one seems to ask how he gets to the navigator anyway.
Bronso sees the Navigator, Paul sees a mutated shape through a gas cloud.
Pg 158 Gurney’s new baliset is rare fake new better wood. He buys it even though 1 page earlier he was dangling the sale
as a reward in search of information.
Pg 158 Duncan and Gurney look for Paul, but get distracted by shopping.

Pg 233 Priests of Dur! ”Alia had studied the details of the ceremony so many times that she barely noticed as the Qizara spoke in Chakobsa,
following traditions as old as the Zensunni wanderers who were the forebears of the Fremen, while the Sayyadina spoke afterward in
flowery ancient Galach, using words that had once been uttered by Priests of Dur in royal wedding ceremonies, before their recent
fall from grace.” FAIL AND AIDS

Kailea had cleaned herself up, made a valiant effort to reconstruct her damaged gown and torn lace, and then wore her altered appearance like a badge. "I should have been attending a ball this week," she said, her voice empty as if all the emotion had been scrubbed from it. "The Solstice of Dur, one of the largest social events on Kaitain. My mother said I could attend one when I was old enough."
Bringing up the rear was the green-robed High Priest of Dur, who had by tradition crowned every Emperor since the fall of the thinking machines. Despite the varying fortunes of his ancient religion, the High Priest proudly sprinkled the iron-red holy dust of Dur right and left onto the audience.
FH in Dune Messiah wrote: "Blessed is Abu d' Dhur, Father of the Indefinite Roads of Time," Scytale said. And he thought: There! I've told him straight out that I come from a Guild Steersman and wear the Steersman's conconcealment.
FH in Children of Dune wrote: "Perhaps you have no choice," Leto said. "You are the fit-haquiqa. The Reality. You are Abu Dhur, Father of the Indefinite Roads of Time."
