    Good point.

    Does that mean the computer was their access point...some type of relay or transponder? Maybe Duncan's proximity to the computer consol is why the vision is so much stronger that last time? (Or is that because they have lifted off and entered foldspace?)

    Hmmm.

    (Sorry, orald, but divinities are not something my universe has room for. Besides

    human + worm-vector != god

    ;) )
    I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

    The one that tells me you should've posted a pic of yourself a long time ago. :P
    In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

    I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

    Yes...that would explained how Duncan had access to the scroll of weapons...

    Man, it's beginning to feel like the Matrix, when they have access to training and stuff... :lol:

    But seriously, the use of Holztmann theories, as we know, needs an engine or mechanical device to create the fold in space. I'm thinking more like a No-ship here. I've been curious for a time about that 2 centimeters long Holztmann generator that Duncan discovered in the scroll...Could it be that the SFD found a way to include something of the like in their DNA and that it is what (and their brain interface, like Chigger said) creates the Net? :|

    "We know." But what is it we do not know?



    ¿At this point in the Dune story, is it necessary for a Tleilaxu ghola's memories to be awakened through a traumatic event? It's been awhile since I read the books, but I remember that technique first being discovered in Dune Messiah. Thousands of years have passed since then. It would have been very interesting (to me) if they had raised Scytale and his memories had just come back to him on their own. ¿Can you imagine?

    Even to the end of the series some kind of extreme emotion must be used to trigger past-lives memories, though they have gotten very good at it as I recall.

    What's with the upside down question marks? Not familiar with that particular punctuation mark.

    I have trouble hearing the questions over the noise of the unnecessary inverted question mark.

    Please don't hold this against me. I'm not going to stop. I mean, I know it causes clutter sometimes, but if I left one out then I would feel uncomfortable. I would keep thinking about it and wouldn't be able to sleep well at night.

    I know for sure everyone else was using that technique, ¿but what about the Bene Tleilax specifically? I can't remember if any references were made to this by Scytale.

    I don't honestly have a quote I can cite right now, but I'm 99% sure that someone BT does in fact mention using these techniques still.

    Fair enough.

    As long as you understand they are incredibly annoying and make people pretty much want to skip everything you have to say.
