    Chapter 28

    Postby Freakzilla » 01 Mar 2008 19:14

    We have long known that the objects of our palpable sense experiences can be
    influenced by choice -- both conscious choice and unconscious. This is a
    demonstrated fact that does not require that we believe some force within us
    reaches out and touches the universe. I address a pragmatic relationship
    between belief and what we identify as "real." All of our judgments carry a
    heavy burden of ancestral beliefs to which we of the Bene Gesserit tend to be
    more susceptible than most. It is not enough that we are aware of this and
    guard against it. Alternative interpretations must always receive our
    attention.

    -Mother Superior Taraza: Argument in Council

    While Odrade, Waff and Sheena continue on their journey through the desert towards the remnants of the Shield Wall, Odrade thinks back to earlier in the day before this venture when she was waiting for Sheeana and Waff. The priest Albertus had been sent to her to inform her that Sheeana had been delayed. She deduces that she is in danger of being assasinated upon a signal from Albertus and confronts him with this. She berates him to the point of nearly groveling and he asks for her forgiveness. She sends him away as messanger to his people, their survival depends on how well they obey her.
