The Weirding Way is the Force.  Makes sense, right?

    Yes and no. The Weirding Way is an extension of one’s mind and body and also requires one to be able to bypass the laws of physics and cause a dramatic shift in one’s perception of both space-time and cause and effect.

    I’m not exactly sure I explained that correctly, here’s a link that explains it more accurately as a part of the Dune elements: http://dune.wikia.com/wiki/Weirding_Way

    I’m betting Marty could learn how to use this himself, and possibly to a much larger effective area, as he is a highly trained Jedi skilled in the use of the Force. 😀 I’d also be willing to bet Shauna could grasp quite a few of the concepts of the Weirding Way, as it seems like something an engineer could understand, especially since she’s adept at turning toasters into warp drives! 😀

      As to the “no” part, it doesn’t seem to specifically imply midi-chlorians were involved, as Dune doesn’t make specific use of force manipulation of objects or people’s minds. At least not that I can recall from the Dune movie I saw, if there is a later version that did do this I very likely haven’t seen it. 😀

        Well, the “Voice” sounds very much like the “Jedi Mind Trick”. Both get you to do things that you otherwise would not do.

    Heh… now that I think about it. The madness voice of sparks in Girl Genius has a similar effect on those who have the minion mindset. It’s often described as a change in voice harmonics that tend to grab attention.
