Mind Under Stress

from Dune (1965) by Frank HerbertRating: 4.1     (75 ratings)

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.
