"Shaï-Hulud spare us!
Take Shaïtan away..."
Slowly, not wanting to arouse the prostrate priests, Sheeana began the shuffling, unrhythmic movements of the dance. As the remembered of the music grew within her, she unclasped her hands and swung her arms wide. Her feet lifted high in the stately movements. Her body turned, slowly at first and then more swiftly as the dance ecstasy increased. Her long brown hair whipped around her face.
The two priests dared to lift their heads.
The strange child was performing The Dance!
They recognized the movements : The Dance of Propitiation.
She asked Shaï-Hulud to forgive his people.
She asked God to forgive them!
They turned their heads to look at each other and, together, rocked back onto their knees.
There, they began clapping in the time-honored effort to distract the dancer. Their hands clapped rythmically as they chanted the ancient words :
"Our fathers ate the manna in the desert,
In the burning places where whirlwinds came!"
Franck Herbert - Heretics of Dune
No People, There is No Up or Down or Right or Left in Space. It's a very simple but often unintuitive concept to understand, since we are so used to directions in our daily lives.
Anywhere, on Any point on Earth you Stand and Look Up, You will always see the Endless Space above with your Legs pointing towards the Center of the Earth.
So, No, You can never fall down into Space.
Hope this clears up this very important idea!
Another moment from my band’s last show in Brooklyn. 🙏 I’m way over on the far side of the stage, joined by the Epic Fail and dancers all over the place (@anacollaborations). Feeling the vibrations. Can’t wait for the next one: July 3rd rooftop party. More about that soon... (📸: @amandakayephoto) #music#shows#dance#cosmic#vibes
