My copy of Dune
APPENDIX II The Religion of Dune p.579 wrote:Did God not give us Shaitan(Iblis, Satan) ?
So that's where he got the name for his idiotic Iblis Gingo(can't remember how it's spelled though, which in a way is good)?
The word "Iblis" may be derived from the Arabic verbal root balasa بَلَسَ, meaning "he despaired"; therefore, the linguistic meaning of Iblis would be "he/it that causes despair"
He probably thinks he's super smart, with the "he/it that causes despair" part, but unless that bloke changed his name after he brought dispair and shit, that would mean his parents were actually prescient lol
Anyway I doubt it's a coincidence...
(it seems we're getting more insight into the reality of the fabled notes no?)
I typed more but my bastard mouse pad erased my post when my hand just brushed over it... I mean how is it possible to do that on purpose? I tried and failed, I think windows is programmed by Gremlins
