Most Helpful Guy
Prescience as described in Frank Herbert's Dune.
The books are surprisingly cultic, and the movie nearly just as much. But I still enjoyed it from a sci-fi fantasy point of view.
So you don't end up reading some 6k+ pages I'll save you some time:
"With all of his attention on the awareness of humanity, however, Herbert had more common and more difficult questions on his mind. By creating a character, Paul Atreides, who is able to see not only into the future, but also into the past lives that made up his long list of ancestors, the questions of personal and societal identity are brought forward. These powers, which Herbert refers to as "prescience" and "genetic memory," respectively, give Paul so much knowledge that he is no longer able to function as an individual."
Good book though =-)1
