The sequential nature of actual events is not illuminated with lengthy
precision by the powers of prescience except under the most extraordinary
circumstances. The oracle grasps incidents cut out of the historic chain.
Eternity moves. It inflicts itself upon the oracle and the supplicant alike.
Let Muad'dib's subjects doubt his majesty and his oracular visions.
Let them deny his powers. Let them never doubt Eternity.
-- The Dune Gospels
