Decided to throw this in books instead of friendly chat. Quote from a book. Read it many many times so far, and each time I get a stronger impression that Frank Herbert (Dune series) was onto something far greater than just writing about sandy Sci-Fi. Once I really started getting into the underlying grip (wrong word) of the quote, it all started to make sense, and a serious commenced.

"Most discipline is hidden discipline, designed not to liberate but to limit. Do not ask Why? Be cautious with How? Why? leads inexorably to paradox. How? traps you in a universe of cause and effect. Both deny the infinite. --The Apocrypha of Arrakis" from Frank Herbert's 'Heretics of Dune'
