ive been wondering about their grotesqueness
seems unlikely its the product of a lifetime of spice downing but
a matter of a long process oif heredity

as far as i can remember, nothing is mentioned


it seems more like its an evolutionary thing

but again, nothing in the word tells about this

that could have been worded better

i see no evidence of navigators being produced from humans inside a single lifetime

if it were, the dune universe would be littered with grossly disformed beings that seems to never crop up...

Why do you need answers to this stuff? The prequels have their own fanfic interpretation, and FH gives us a bit more in the books past Dune, but we don't know how long it takes afaik or whether there's a genetic component. To the extent that his books are 'works of prediction' I doubt he had any intention to predict how some made-up substance affects your genes.

They were born and raised in space, that answers the question for me.
