Because of the one-pointed Time awareness in which the conventional mind remains
immersed, humans tend to think of everything in a sequential, word-oriented
framework. This mental trap produces very short-term concepts of effectiveness
and consequences, a condition of constant, unplanned response to crises.

Jessica begins Farad'n's Bene Gesserit training. She instructs him to hold his arms out straight in front of him until he can visualize them growing old, then young then back again until he can do it at will. He is to keep trying until he succeds, he must learn this lesson before any others. She gets up to leave and tells him she will be back in an hour to teach him exercises to releive his sore arms. As she leaves him to it, she notices the look of awe in the faces of her Sardaukar guards, they have been raised on tales of their defeat by the Fremen. She is a Fremen Reverend Mother, Bene Gesserit and Atreides. She sees this as a milepost in her plan, now if only Duncan and Gurney can do their parts.
