Published: 6 months ago
God Emperor of Dune is the fourth book in Frank Herbert's Dune Saga. The Novel takes place 3,500 years after the events of the previous Novel in the series, Children of Dune. Leto II of the House Atreides has ruled the empire with an Iron fist since that time. The Sandtrout skin which Leto had first put on in Shulloch has grown and changed him. In the early stages of Leto’s “transformation” which is referred to in the novels as his “metamorphosis” Leto was mostly human, the symbiote skin had given him incredibly amplified strength, immunity to conventional attacks, and prevented him from aging. But Leto always knew what would become of him. The skin which was not his own consisted of many interlocking tiny sand vectors Leto knew that approximately 4,000 years after he had put on the living suit, the completed transformation of the sandtrout into their adult worm phase would destroy him. Leto calls this his “final metamorphosis”

Dune is highly interesting but at the same time its hard to fully understand all the philosophy and messages here.

Do you do audio books? You should. You have the voice for it. I love the way you read. You sound like a Fremen. You bring the book alive.

I know Dune is much older than Warhammer 40K but I can't stop thinking of the God-Emperor of Mankind.

Thank you so much for these vids! I had the pleasure of reading the original 6 dune novels by frank herbert. Each page of every book had such a powerful grip, as if I myself were addicted to the spice melange! Though there's controversy regarding the expanded Dune novels by Brian herbert & kevin J Anderson, I enjoy them as well. Most is based off of extensive notes/outlines by the elder herbert. This is still a profoundly deep universe, thought provoking science fiction at it's finest. I only hope the new Dune movies will do the material justice. This is as essential reading as Lord of The Rings.

The intro sounds very similar to the 'higher awareness' of esoteric initiation

My consciousness has been widened and my own reflections and spiritual Journey to the memories of my own family's past memories and walking among them. I am truly grateful for this video and the next. Wow. I can feel my mind and my spirit vibrating from this. I can now look at the Emerald Tablets and the Bible and God himself inside me and start the work. I shall be returning to this video again and again to keep me on the straight and narrow path. Yes. THAT narrow path.

I can only congratulate you on delivering this video that is like the finest delicacy that exists for a Dune fan who read the books quite some time ago.
Now I have to reread it all. I will try it through audio books since your voice and narration proves how powerful this story can be with the right person telling it.
Can't wait for the last two books, which are actually my favourite of the cycle.
Thank you !

Anyone else reading these great works for the first time, then watching these videos to see if you missed anything?
Awesome work as always. I always look forward to the book coverage videos.

Thank you for this!!! I LOVE Dune universe, I have read all the books at least 3 times and every time I find something new. However God Emperor of Dune was the most frustrating book to follow due to the the combination philosophical text combined with word games. You have explained so well The Golden Path and the role of the Leto the second, so this helped. Can you also do a talk on the cultural, philosophical and religious inspiration of Frank Herbert? Anyway, thanks a lot for your posts 🙏 Keep going!

Omg the beginning is so flat earth closed system reference, the actual world we live in. People to afraid to face the reality of this "box" as he calls it. So they choose to believe the endless universe theory. Wich may very well be outside of this box. But this box is made for a reason, I believe and any in it are here for a reason as well.

@IdeasOfIceAndFire. Nayla @21:36-40. If they did a movie on this, actress Gwendoline Christie("Star Wars: Force Awakens" and "Last Jedi") would be PERFECT to play her!

Where is your Patreon account? Ahh, I found it. Be sure to add it to all of your video notes. FB and Twitter is great, but
Patreon helps pay the bills, eh? Love your work, man, keep it up. Can't wait for book 6 and ALL of the others!!! I really hope you cover Brian's Dune work too.

You forgot to mention this 2 novels:
Hunters of Dune (2006)
Sandworms of Dune (2007)
I know they were not written by Frank Herbert but they were written by his son Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. They're supposed to conclude the original story and they were based on notes left behind by Frank Herbert for what he referred to as Dune 7, his own planned seventh novel in the Dune series.
So many you should include them in those videos that are coming out.
