  1. Because I can't resist, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss another classic speculative fiction setting and great influencer of Star Wars: the Dune series by Frank Herbert. Though there are polarizing views about the canon made by Brian Herbert, for the sake of discussion, we can include it here. What intrigued me was the concept of the Zensunni and Mahayana Christianity faiths, and the Orange Catholic Bible, as well as the many striking parallels between Mohammed and Paul Atreides story in the first book. Watching the whole evolution of Paul Muad'Dib and the difficulty of separating the man from the myth is what made me begin questioning heroes and legends, and actually drew me more to Taoism because of the preference for modesty and no need for glory or recognition, especially with Laozi himself. Short comments or long discussions, or even arguing about what you think of the series after Chapterhouse: Dune are all acceptable.
