Hsu on Dune

As we have recently discussed Dune here, I was amused by Stephen Hsu's reference to, in the comments section of Feynman, Schwinger, and Psychometrics, and discussion of the book.  Still browsing.

I remember that part of Dune. I agree with him about the sequels, but I don't fault Herbert for not following through on that hint. That would have involved a force--for the sake of story-telling a character--who operates on thousand+ year time scales and has motives that a simple human is unlikely to understand. Star Maker tried something like that, and IMHO failed.

I'd not seen that distinction between Feynman and Schwinger's explanation style--interesting.
