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”

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.

Do you think if they make a Dune movie they will do what they did to Star Wars and make it into current year L.A and introduce some purple haired cunt?

So the guild navigators are more or less the same thing as Leto II. Being humans mutated by the spice over the course of thousands of years, he is what they could have become if they had fused their essence with not only the spice but the worms. He is only but a step above what they as well could have become. I wonder why they never took that extra step? It's probably also safe to assume leto himself could pilot a highliner if he wanted too. He has all the knowledge and prescience necessary to do so.

Y do I have to keep re-likeing this vid? Is it because the part in the vid that speaks of the truth of government among other truths? Yes I think so, how this vid mentions gov being the ultimate system of chaos, this is true. Chaos creates fear & when ppl r in that mind set that r more likely to give their natural freedoms to whoever can promise them peace. But lil do the sheeple know the same psychopaths who give them empty promises of peace & safety r the same 1s who created the chaos in the 1st place by design. & this is all in short of course, cuz this is no small matter. & Dune as well as our world is proof of this trickery Gov- mean "to control" Ment- means "mind" so the true meaning of government means "to control the mind". To understand a words true meaning u must look at it as its Latin root word definitions. This English dictionary may is a book of lies, cuz the text that is used in this system that governs it only recognizes & uses Latin. Y r we taught English instead of Latin then? Well it's by design to keep us in confused, its called grammatical deception. & this also has to do with y our names on our license, birth certificate etc etc is in all caps. Look into this, now tho its extremely disturbing & a crime against humanity its liberating given that u will then understand how we r enslaved. Once we understand then we can understand how to b done away with it

So, worm boi repressed the freedom of his subjects in order to secure peace and security? Hmmmmm.... This reminds me of this Benjamin Franklin quote, “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Duncan is such a prude. If I saw a couple Fish Speakers making out, I'd grab a lawn chair and a cold spice beer and enjoy the show.

Truth is though,(SPOILER ALERT, DO NOT READ AHEAD IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE ENDING OF THE CONTINUED SAGA BY FRANK'S SON AND ANDERSON) at the end, if the kwisatch haderach didn't come about in the final books humanity might still be extinguished, for if the machines had decided to cover all the universe and into any other dimensions, eventually they would have found all remaining humans.

You know you are one level below Waifu-pillow-cuddlers when the only sexual contact you have is 20.000 years into your live by a genetically modified specimen of yours in a desert, licking your skin-flap.

Bravo and well done sir. After reading the entire epic by the Master 3x over 20 years and with owning a treasured original encyclopedia, your production and story telling here pulls me back into this classic saga and it’s mystery. Thanks for lighting fires of the Dune Universe and sharing it’s relevant wisdom.

As far as Duncan being inferior to Moneo based on genetics, faster thought, reflexes and strength are not always the superior traits it terms of species survival. Character is far more important. In terms of a human breeding program. Variety is more important than selecting specific traits. Genes need to adapt continuously as environments change and by narrowing the gene pool to accentuate characteristics such as precience will only weaken the species in the long run. Even extended age isn't an advantage unless you outlive your peers.

A strong character emerges from the narrow margins of existence that life hangs on in the universe as a result of a wide gene pool allowing the greatest amount of mixing of traits for the best combinations to emerge from natural selection.

Like a prize dog. I don't understand how the breeding programs don't inherit difficulties with their health.

As for Leto II turning into a giant worm. Well. Given that hybrid had never been created before I'm not sure how he was lucky enough to keep his face and arms. Also, at what point could he no longer walk? Did he wake up one day and his legs were fused together?

If Leto wants to save the human race from self destruction, why allow humans extended life which is how you get a demagog leader which he says he is trying to avoid. Whilst being a demagog leader for thousands of years.

But if it's not self destruction then who is this enemy? I guess as Herbert died it will just have to be for us to pontificate...
