The Reverend Mom’s check determines the power of Paul’s will and how a lot ache he can resist with out reacting. The field is in reality empty, and the Mom is telepathically producing Paul’s emotions of discomfort to uncover his skills.
A part of that is that the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood has been running for generations to produce the Kwisatz Haderach, a male Bene Gesserit and the messiah of the universe. The Reverend Mom ordered Jessica to produce a daughter to achieve this objective, however she bore a son as an alternative, Paul, out of affection for Duke Leto (Oscar Isaac). Now the Mom is trying out Paul’s self-discipline to see if he’s the Kwisatz Haderach.
Paul, in the beginning, cannot undergo the ache however makes use of a Bene Gesserit mantra (“I should now not worry, worry is the mind-killer”) to calm himself down till the examination is over. Having withstood the check longer than someone, the younger Duke Atreides simply may well be the messiah the sisterhood has been in search of all this time.
