What Dune Teaches About Dreams Part 2

Part 2 of What Dune Teaches About Dreams

“Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind.  ~ORANGE CATHOLIC BIBLE, DUNE

Here is the serious matter:

A dream is what sets you above the average person.  Not having a dream means driving down the road of mediocrity on autopilot.

I have a simple word for this…Automaton.

An automaton (plural: automata or automatons) is a self-operating machine A robot.

Yeah, you have enough working brain matter  to feed yourself and/or your family but any complex thinking is left to others.

Basically you’re a thinking machine and you better not let fanatics of the Butlerian Jihad of the Machine Crusade catch you or they’ll destroy you for being a thinking machine.

Do you really need me to tell you that being average suck?

You know what’s the problem with Americans today–somebody convinced us that being average is okay.


I bet you KNOW you’re going on autopilot but decide somewhere along the way that you’re okay with that.  Somebody has convinced you that to have a little is better than nothing.

 Serious matter: The danger of being an automaton is that it can be manipulated to do what someone else wants it to do.  Is that you?

What are you doing?
