    Dune Messiah, Chapter 1

    Paul is about 30-y-o at this point so I think it would be very possibly to have been done in his time.

    Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

    Paul age wasn't really the point I was thinking of, where my muse was taking was that it was 12ish years since he took the Water of Life. Do you think the Bene Tleilax could have created and matured the correct specimen to be a successful Kwisatz Haderach in that timescale. Which Kwisatz Haderach was first?

    Leto II, Ghanima and Alia did it before birth, so I think genetics, not experience is the key.

    I think it may have been mentioned in one of the latter books that the BT offered to make a KH for the BG, but they wanted to do it the "natural" way.

    Which Kwisatz Haderach was first?


    Again... the BT KH was a tool to defeat the BG KH. That would lead me to believe the BG KH came first. If the BG hadn't lost control of theirs, the BT wouldn't have needed one.

    I blame the preeqs for all your bad humours. :lol:


    How do you imagine they would have wanted the two KHs to go up against each other? A game of prescient pyramid chess sounds extremely unlikely, so what does one KH have as advantage over another?

    Maybe just to give the BT insight into what a KH would be planning, knowledge of what one was capable of, and someone to help them scheme against one.

    They may have intended their KH to be a tool, rather than an actual direct weapon.

    Nope. We'll find out he was actually an uber-KH with the force, and he was meant to fight paul with super powers. :wink:

    They wouldn't have been pitted against each other, the BT KH was made so as to find the weakness in Paul.

    Exactly, he was kind of a virtual Paul that they used to find a way to defeat him.
