Dune Lore: The God Emperor’s Greatest Secret

Dune Lore: The God Emperor’s Greatest Secret

The video above called Dune Lore: The God Emperor’s Greatest Secret by the YouTube channel Quinn’s Ideas is about some of the secrets of the character God Emperor Leto Atreides II from Frank Herbert’s book God Emperor Of Dune, which is one of my favorite books, and here is the description for this video:

This video of course will contain spoilers for the book: God Emperor of Dune. Of the many great and powerful Dukes, Barons, and Emperors of the Dune Universe none have had more impact than the God Emperor, Leto II. His eventual powers would dwarf those of even his father, Paul Atreides. His influence outgrew the guild, all of choam, even the Bene Gesserit. The great houses of the Landsraad were rendered irrelevant. He controlled the flow of spice throughout the universe, and no one moved throughout his empire without his knowledge. His prescient eye reached to the furthest reach of time, almost nothing was hidden from him. He was the most powerful human being who ever lived by far. And the most oppressive imperial dictator of all time, never before had the whole of humanity been held in such a tight grip.

But even he was vulnerable. The God Emperor Possessed secrets. These hidden vulnerabilities are ultimately the key to his undoing. The first of the God Emperor’s Secret’s which Duncan Idaho was supposedly put in charge of maintaining, was simply the fact that he was vulnerable. He was not truly a god as many throughout the human universe truly believed, he could be harmed, he could be killed.

Getting Chosen To Be In A Steve Buscemi Movie?

Dream 1

Part of this dream possibly took place at a diner and something was not working, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that maybe I got a telephone call or something telling me that I was chosen to be in a movie that was going to be directed by the actor Steve Buscemi; and that they wanted me to go to a certain location at a certain time.

I have no acting experience or acting skill and I had not auditioned et cetera so this was a surprise and confusing, but I agreed to go check it out at least.

I remember going to a certain indoor and outdoor location during the day when it was late in the afternoon and grayer and darker or it was early evening, and I guess some of the filming for the movie was going to take place here.

All the potential cast and crew were there, some people possibly had to do an audition while we were there, some people simply met the director et cetera and were either chosen or rejected, and some of us were already chosen and got to meet Mr. Buscemi et cetera to see if we would accept the role.

There was a cafeteria set up so we all got to eat and drink, even those who got rejected, I remember waiting in line and talking with people et cetera.

I saw that some preparation for filming were being started, it was very early stages, but from the clues it seemed that part of the movie was possibly going to involve the military and soldiers in basic training and/or some sports and other physical activities.

At some point I got to meet Mr. Buscemi, he told me that I did not have to worry about auditioning or anything because he had chosen me himself, and he said that he had somehow checked me out and felt that I would be a good fit for the role/character that he had in mind.

I told him that I had no acting experience or acting skill and that this is probably not something that I would be good at or even able to handle, he told me not to worry and that he felt that I would be a good fit, and I agreed to at least give it a try.

He did not tell me much about my role or who my character would be or what the movie was about, he told me that the studio was worried about leaks, and so they were keeping things secret.

Mr. Buscemi told that this movie project was a personal project of his that he has been working on for months and maybe years, that he felt good about it, and that he looked forward to finally bringing it to life.

I thanked him for the opportunity and that I hoped that I would not let him down, and then I walked away so that he could meet the next person.

I still could not believe that this was happening and I was still confused by how Mr. Buscemi had chosen me because I do not have any video or audio of myself online for him to see, and so I wondered if he had just saw and heard me somewhere and felt that I was a natural fit for a certain role/character.

This was one of those opportunities that you do not pass up no matter if you are shy and have social anxiety et cetera, I had no idea how much money I would make and I did not really care, this was my chance to see what it is like behind the scenes of a movie and to be part of it.

I imagined that it would be interesting to see myself in the movie credits and in the movie itself if they kept any of my scenes, and I wondered what my coworkers et cetera would think.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

President Vladimir Putin Shares A Secret With The President Of The United States

Dream 1

This was the most interesting dream out of the dreams that I recorded, but unfortunately the dream is a bit blurry.

This dream possibly took place in Russia during the day and I was riding outside on an extended topless / open golf cart-like vehicle with The President Of Russia Vladimir Putin, The President Of The United States who was possibly George W. Bush in the dream but I could be wrong, there was a high-level person withe The President Of The United States who was maybe The Vice President Of The United States (if it was the vice president then it was probably Dick Cheney, but I could be wrong) or The United States Secretary Of Defense or The Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs Of Staff or someone like that, and there were a few other people with us.

Evasive Action

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Evasive Action, and this is what it said:

What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept?

Did the truth ever come out?

And this is my response:

I recently said that I thought and I felt that the Daily Prompts were asking too many personal questions sometimes and now today’s Daily Prompt is even more personal, wow, really?

At this rate future Daily Prompts might ask for our passwords, bank account numbers, birth certificates, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, usernames, licenses, national IDs, tax records, degrees, diplomas, passports, safe codes, safe words, et cetera. 😀

Also for almost a month or for a month now there has been a bug where the Daily Prompts do not show up in the WordPress.com Reader so you have to be following by email or manually to even know that a Daily Prompt is released each day, I reported this bug twice to the WordPress.com Staff and it was acknowledged as a bug and they said that they were working on it, but it still has not been fixed yet weeks later; and so it would be nice if they could fix this, and I would recommend that other people also report this to them too (WordPress.com Contact Page or help@wordpress.com) if you have noticed this same bug.

Anyway, my answers to this once again overly personal Daily Prompt is:

That is classified information, and even if it was not I would probably not answer this question.

No, and I plan on keeping it that way.
