Science behind the Spice


Recommended Posts

I'm working on a solution to this; I'd be grateful for any help anyone (esp biochemists and similar) can offer.

I think the following are true:

Wormsign is N-fixing - that is, static is created by moving around, therefore creating lightning, oxidising Nitrogen in the air to nitrites in the worm, which are then converted to nitrates and proteins - the esential process that

These proteins and enzymes can then be used by sandtrout, to use the water and CO2 (created by respiration, raw materials unknown - alkenes?)

I'm not convinced that the Arrakeen lifecycle uses glucose; I'm also considering other substances, primarily hydrocarbons and similar, but I don't have the technical knowledge in this field to be sure of anything.

Please excure lack of subscripts here.
