Discrepancies within the Original Novels Edit Ancestral Memories - Alia: In Dune , Jessica endures the spice agony, and receives the memories of a Fremen Reverend Mother who had, in turn, received the memories of the Reverend Mother who came before her. As a result, Jessica inherits the memories of countless generations of Reverend Mothers. Jessica's unborn child, Alia, also inherits these memories and is born with the awareness and memories of an adult in the body of a child.
In Children of Dune , however, Alia instead possesses the memories of her ancestors including the Baron Harkonnen. Rationalization: Alia gives herself a massive spice -overdose in Dune Messiah.
It is possible that this spice-overdose triggers her ancestral memories. Rationalization 2: It was also stated that Alia possessed her other memories all throughout her life from birth, but succumbed to them through a combination of flesh-weakness puberty , the disapproval and subsequent burying of friendly other-selves such as the other-memory version of the Lady Jessica , and futile attempts to dominate other-memories instead of forge a working relationship with them as stated by Leto II.
However, this ability is not possessed by any Bene Gesserit in the earlier novels. When Jessica endures the spice agony in Dune, for example, she gains access to the memories of all the Reverend Mothers who came before her, but she doesn't gain ancestral memories. During that time, the Bene Gesserit have all been explicitly bred to inherit the genes of Siona Atreides. Siona briefly gained ancestral memories as a result of enduring the spice agony.
Siona's father, Moneo, also briefly gained ancestral memories as a result of enduring the spice agony. It seems likely that ancestral memories are a trait inherited from Ghanima , bred for by the God Emperor, and triggered by the spice agony. It is possible that the Bene Gesserit further strengthened this trait through their breeding program.
However, he also recalls events witnessed by his first reincarnation: "Idaho remembered a strange child - twins, really: Leto and Ghanima, Paul's children, the children of Chani, who had died delivering them.
Rationalization 2: This could have been an early and unknown to Leto attempt by the Tleilaxu to incorporate serial ghola memories into one body. They had made a previous attempt to change the psyche and body of a ghola with disastrous results, so it would be understandable that they would be more cautious with any changes made. In Heretics of Dune, Duncan Idaho is initially awakened with his memories only up to the point of his original death in Dune before Paul Atreides becomes Muad'dib. However, he later speaks, prior to gaining the memories of his later incarnation, of being taught how to resist the Voice control of the Bene Gesserit: "I learned the way of that from Paul Muad'dib himself.
It's also possible, perhaps even likely, that this is deliberate foreshadowing that Duncan's memories include his later incarnations.
Farok's Arm: In Dune Messiah , a minor character named Farok is initially described with a missing arm: " Scytale returned his gaze to the old man [Farok], noted the empty sleeve dangling from the left shoulder and the lack of a stillsuit. Rationalization: It may be that only certain orders of Honored Matres learn voice, or that it was not taught until later in training, Murbella being but newly robed as an Honored Matre at the end of Heretics.
Heretics of Dune also establishes that Face Dancers are the servants of the Masters, who are not Face Dancers themselves. Rationalization: The Scytale appearing in Heretics of Dune is not, in fact, a ghola-descendant of the Scytale in Dune Messiah - although this is unlikely, as Scytale the Master also met Paul.
Also, Masters with serial lives, as they are known in Heretics and beyond, was a Tleilaxu political development that came after the discovery of how to make gholas remember past lives in Dune Messiah. It is possible that ghola-Scytale was a Face Dancer who later became a Master.
However, this is the same year that the novel begins with Paul already 15 years old. Similar confusion over Shaddam's age can be found in another passage from Dune: "My father, the Padishah Emperor, was 72 yet looked no more than 35, the year he encompassed the death of Duke Leto and gave Arrakis back to the Harkonnens. Rationalization: The prequels resolve this inconsistency by subtracting fifteen years from the birth dates of Shaddam IV and Count Hasimir Fenring.
Anderson and Brian Herbert are frequently used by critics of the prequels. Criticism of the prequels also extends to a perception of poor quality and a negation or misrepresentation of Frank Herbert's original points and themes. For example, John C.
Snider wrote in his review of Dune: House Harkonnen : "If any criticism could be made about the prequels, it's that they just don't have the Byzantine mystique of Frank Herbert's original novels. The characters within the prequels would fit well within any of the old pulp dramas - driven by vengeance, driven by justice, driven by love - you get the picture.
The Harkonnens, for example, are so ridiculously evil it stretches believability that they could control a thriving empire for millennia! Frank Herbert was a master at plunging you into strange, alien worlds of the far-flung future. The prequel novels, while satisfying, will just never attain the artistry of the original.
The inconsistencies below are matters of fact within the Dune universe.
Bene Gesserit Psychic Powers Edit In the original Dune books, Frank Herbert presents the Bene Gesserit as a secretive sisterhood whose members train their bodies and minds through years of physical and mental conditioning to obtain powers and abilities that can easily be seen as magical to the uninitiated.
It is an important aspect of their place in the Dune universe, and thematically within the books that their powers are not supernatural and mystical, but based on a thorough understanding of their physical body and the body politic.
Frank Herbert's Bene Gesserit were consummate politicians who understood the use of body, mind, and spirit in pursuit of power. Still, they do have some powers which might be classed as supernatural within the context of the created Duniverse. In example, the "genetic memory," or remembering the direct experiences of an ancestor or individual with whom they have "shared," most commonly via a spice-trance. Anderson and Brian Herbert, however, endow their predecessors, the Sorceresses of Rossak , with telepathic and telekinetic abilities, changing not only the Bene Gesserit but the metaphysical rules of the Dune universe.
Later, in Dune: House Harkonnen , they give the now fully-formed Bene Gesserit the ability to hide in shadows, close to invisibility. In none of the six original books does any Bene Gesserit give any hint of knowing of any such abilities of invisibility or telekinesis - not even in situations where such abilities would be lifesaving.
He uses the term TP when Mohiam says that Alia is in her mind, but his reaction is more indicative that it is a sought after but never found mystical ability.
In Dune: House Harkonnen , the Bene Gesserit are also apparently able to sense and wrest control telepathically of a no-ship being flown by the Beast Rabban. This seems in stark conflict with the characterization of a no-ship in the original Frank Herbert novels as explicitly undetectable, most particularly by those with extra-sensory perception.
Rationalization: It is imaginable, especially in the case of the telekinetic powers which were only used to kill cymeks and resulted in the Sorceress's death, that the Bene Gesserit in the original novels had these powers, but a situation never arose where they needed to use them. It is never explicitly stated that they do not have these powers, they are just not expressed in the writing, much like the existence of Face Dancers and gholas were not mentioned in the original Dune, and yet play a significant role in its sequels.
Discrepancies to Rationalization: A false analogy is made by comparing the existence of new information in works authored later and set at a later time to the existence of old information in novels authored later and set at an earlier time. The Dune sequels come after Dune and so can introduce new information freely that doesn't contradict earlier information.
Rationalization: It is mentioned in the prequels that the telekinetic powers were a result of various chemicals that were found on Rossak.
It may be that within a generation or two after the Bene Gesserit left Rossak, they lost these powers. Discrepancies to Rationalization: Bene Gesserits engage in life-or-death combat dozens of times throughout the novels, for instance, against Honored Matres in Chapterhouse: Dune.
And by Rational I mean the know what they should do, but they don't do it until they are pretty much forced to. I have to break this down by the different factions, and while I'm doing this I'd like you to think about who the protagonist is in this book. The Butlerians are the same mindless, insane mob of fanatics they were in Sisterhood. Law where they are considered has been thrown out the window. Seriously, its not until a child of the royal family is trampled in the streets that anyone even considered trying to stop them in any serious manner.
And what exactly do they want? The level of acceptable tech varies widely depending on who and what the action is centered on. The Bene Gesseritt--Oh god. FFS seriously these parts of the book are just atrocious. Essentially its the story of Mother Superior trying to bring the "Orthodox" sisters from Sisterhood back into the fold before she dies. Every chapter we're reminded about how close to death she is and how she's using all of her bodily control to stay alive. Except for the one chapter she feels revitalized and goes jogging.
Truthsayers become the new ball to toss around, with everyone having to use 'clever' wording to get out of getting caught in a lie.
Other than that one time a RM calls someone on a lie of omission. Valya Harkonnen actually requires her own paragraph. She becomes Wonder Mother by being the first to create Voice.
She then proceeds to use it on just about everyone else in the Sisterhood. She is dead set on becoming the new mother superior so she can use that power to ruin the Atreides.
She just has to wait for the RM Superior to heal the breach Yeah the one that is on death's door threatens to kill herself if they don't agree to reconcile.
So they reconcile, the RMS tells Valya and the head of the Orthodox sisters she names them both as her successor and wants them to work together.
She then gives all her OM to the Orthodox sister and dies. Valya then uses voice on her and makes her kill herself.
