HIGHLIGHT RECOMMENDATION

As an avid, nay voracious, reader in my youth, it was curious that I never read the book Dune.

I missed the movie when it was released in 1984/85, because I was in hospital recovering from the birth of my first son.

Why then the impact on my life today?

I believe that as we grow older we absorb knowledge and experience. If an organism is too young, too immature, to absorb an experience, that experience simply floats outside of the organism in an outer universe -- the outerworld.

When I finally saw the movie I was able to appreciate the finer points of the narrative because my life had begun to resemble events in the movie . . . the experience was internalized --

pieces of the outside event of the movie
became part of the inside event of my experiences.

I saw Dune in 1985 on a 2-part video -- a copy which I wish I had today.

CONNECTIONS
Only much later, did I draw the parallel between Frank Herbert's writing of Dune and Rod Serling's writing of The Twilight Zone. Both used future allegory to critique present-day cultural and political systems which were taboo at the time of their writings.

Only today can I draw the connection of the Great Houses of the Landsraad and the Great Houses of Royals during and beyond the First and Second World Wars. The game of who-is-who, what-is-what and where-is-where can be fun if you are history buff. . .

. . . but that is another game entirely!
