Golden Path?  
Well, even if this place is relatively new and lacking members, I decided to take a chance and join anyway. I'll be happy to discuss regardless if it's just one person, if they (and I mean the moderator) feels the same way. I've never read the whole series through, just the first four books years ago so I thought this will be good for memory.

What was Leto II's golden path? What did he wanted to achieve in the end exactly? I'm not the most intellectual or the brightest person here so I'll need someone to spell it out for me. What I generally got was that he wanted a future that was beyond his prescient powers, I suppose.

After reading God Emperor of Dune, I believed it was Leto's plan for humanity to escape prescience; humanity's future could remain unseen in case of the rising of another like Leto or Paul. However, after Heretics and Chapterhouse, I thought about it some more and realized that it may have been the foundation for the Scattering so that humanity would survive the unknown enemy from which the Honored Matres fled. Who knows?
Maybe the answer will come in the upcoming two books.
