“What do you see in the book that is a funhouse mirror reflection of our world right now?"
"Herbert's work was a culmination of 20-30 years of American magazine science fiction." - Kim Stanley Robinson #SciFriLive #SciFriBookClub
Dune is, in part, a story of how lack of ecological understanding leads to unforeseen environmental consequences. #scifribookclub

@scifri I love the idea of the mentats, humans focused on problem-solving and finding answers...wish I was more like that #scifribookclub
Selective breeding for prescient beings sounds plausible in 1000 generations. Mental training happens now #meditation #Dune #SciFriBookClub

Had tons of fun discussing #astrobiology of #Dune @scifri ! Can't wait for next time, dying to dig into the alien biochemistry of spice!

#scifribookclub Is Dune/Arrakis Earth? Maybe allegorically but not in story. In prequels, Earth was once turned into radio active slag heap.
In 2014, Dune calls us to foster "ecological literacy among the people" #dune #desertplanet #SciFriBookClub
Dune also blurs the line between machine & human. This is important in an age when our *digital life & our *real life merge. #SciFriBookClub
In response to Ryan Streb
@scifri #scifribookclub I suppose the conflict over spice can be seen in the same way that resources are fought over in 2014

Great timing! Been going through all 6 about once a year for the past 20 yrs and I still keep finding new ideas in them. #SciFriBookClub
Dune is a thought experiment in what an intergalactic government would look like. How would you govern 10,000 planets? #SciFriBookClub
From daily-dune on Tumblr: "One of the best parts of watching Jodorowksy’s Dune was seeing quality versions of Mobius’ drawings."
