The mind can go either direction


This Bene Gesserit axiom is thought of by Jessica when they first reach the desert:

The mind can go either direction under stress - toward positive or toward negative: on or off. Think of it as a spectrum whose extremes are unconsciousness at the negative end and hyperconsciousness at the positive end. The way the mind will lean under stress is strongly influenced by training.
