and in GEoD, I believe this was equated to Kralizec, later revealed to mean "cloud darkness at the end of the universe".
What does the typhoon refer to? Is it a concept that comes from people on Arrakis, such that a massive amount of water, too much water introduced all of a sudden, is like a doomsday event?
Is Typhoon Struggle/Kralizec really some certain event that is going to happen in the future, or is it just any possible doomsday event which must be avoided or overcome?
By doomsday, I don't necessary mean forces of nature but humanity or life perishing, perhaps through their own actions.
Is the goal of the Golden Path to see all these possible kralizec, and find the path that will avoid them all, or more importantly, if they can't be avoided, have humanity able to cope with them?

Paul Atreides’s first action in Dune is an imitation that fails. As Reverend Mother Mohiam looks in on him, he pretends to be asleep. Looking back from the end, we may call what he attempts “concealment in a no-consciousness,” while in light of Plato’s Sophist, we may call it “concealment in nonbeing.” But Reverend Mother Mohiam, like Reverend Mother Anteac, is very good at what she does, and she detects Paul’s imitation or concealment in nonbeing.
Had Paul sat up in bed when the door to his room first opened, Mohiam would have learned that he was awake. Had he succeeded in feigning sleep, she would have learned nothing accurate. Observing Paul’s failed attempt, she learned both that he was awake and that he was a sly little rascal.
