Turn Against Us

"We have entered the time when all will turn against us and seek our lives."

- Dune (1984)

I’ve been meaning to get this posted for a while but other things were happening so this one didn’t. Therefore, I flipped the switch. Here it is!

It’s a crazy world and anyone who doesn’t see that can’t see anyway and so wouldn’t be reading this in the first place. Never mind that, it’s a crazy world. Things are happening all over the place and I can definitely say that there is movement.

With movement all become at risk. At risk of what, you say? At risk of our own fears.1

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

- Dune (1984)

Well, we all know the story of Dune and how it turns out don’t we. I’m not saying the future is set in stone because I’m pretty open to the future allowing it’s self to unfold. It doesn’t need me to do that. But I can put on my reporter’s hat and tell you about what is.

The rest is up to you.

It Took Me A While

It took me a while to get this exact moment from the movie. It’s right after Muad’Dib shows just a little of what he’s capable of and it’s her initial expression which lasts for just a split second.

I’m not saying this has anything to do with anything other than to say… be care-full of what you wish for. Just ask this guy:

Clarification (26 Sep 2016)

Even by the time that I got around to writing this up it had already expired. The only reason I continued to write this anyway was for an historical jaunt down memory lane, at least for later. So please don’t make something out of nothing when nothing is the root cause of you doing something anyway. Oh, never mind…


  1. It’s not just fears. Well, maybe it is but the point is that seeing what is before our eyes requires unhinging ourselves from our own little points of view. The universe isn’t about us and our little ‘important’ selves - well, maybe it is. I’ve got a lot of ‘maybes’ going on so I’m going to just leave this at that. I’m sure you’ll figure it all out.
