Nowadays transhumanism, gene-manipulation and mind control are among the current affairs, so it is not a surprise that Frank Herbert's book, the Dune received lots of attention.
'God Emperor of Dune' is taking the challenge to dive deep into the root causes and he envisions a future by following the logical steps of the so called 'Golden Path'.
We found ourselves in an era, where all the Divine Feminine are already dead, and the twin-brother completed his journey of the perfection of the mind and he became the only logical, possible outcome, a Giant Phallos without heart.
Frank Herbert shows the highest brilliance when he takes the side of the Worm and does all the attempts to absolve him by giving an insight of the Beast's thinking process. He shows the enslaved humanity in slow motion, and it takes time till the reader figures out that something went terribly wrong in the making and we are standing in a totalitarian dictatorship where the emperor enslaved the Divine Feminine and toying with humans like puppets. He kept an army of female for their protection-instinct and for breeding purposes and his only accepted woman companion is a gene-manipulated hybrid, who is obeying him without questions, just like an extra-sweet Virgin Mary.
But despite of all effort to create total control over their fear of Chaos, and despite the fact that he owns ALL the minds within himself, the ultimate power of Nature found a way to break it through and a little girl came to question the nakedness of the emperor.
He tries to demand her, but this language is not working on her. She voluntarily takes the challenge to go with the Beast to his own Territory without any kind of protection showing her willingness to sacrifice everything for the truth.
Siona is the last hope, deeply connected to the Essence of Life. She cannot see the future, as her life is about surrender, and about the absolute trust to the Unknown. For the exact same reason, the mind-controlling Beast is unable to see her thoughts.
Her vulnerability and courage are the key, which lift her beyond the Worm, and that is why she became the ultimate result or the ruby of the Golden Path. She is the only one who reaches Wholeness, by reawakening and integrating the rejected, third part of the Divine Feminine.
