Kwizatz Haderach?

This week on GLoP, the guys deconstruct Dune, discuss the merits of keeping a diary, offer some opinions on Succession, and remember show runner extraordinaire  Steven J. Cannell.

    See, it’s a lot easier to get two shows in a month if you don’t wait until 3 weeks in to do the first one!

    Geeze guys, I don’t actually have a particle of interest in Dune, but there’s no n in Kwisatz!  (And there’s also just one z.)

    Also, the main characters do not look like the GLoP guys! Jeez!

    Okay, but did you listen?  Every time any of them said it, they said it as Kwiznatz.  Or even Kwiznatch.

    Well, as we, the few that read the books know, Paul wasn’t the Messiah. So it doesn’t matter how you spell it.

    The term seems to derive from the Hebrew, “Kefitzat Haderech”, the Shortening of the Way, which is a kind of teleportation or space warping found in the Talmud.  Herbert may have encountered the term in the short stories of the famous Israeli writer, S.Y. Agnon, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1966.

    Incidentally, I can’t imagine the Nobel committee giving such a prize to an Israeli writer today, unless he is anti-Israel!
