drbubb Posted September 26, 2015 Report Share Posted September 26, 2015 Issac Asimov's Foundation Series, & Psycho-history live on A mythical science called psycho-history was developed by Asimov's Hari Seldon ... and this was the primary script manipulating History in Asimov's Foundation series. But the REAL manipulators of History were a secret society, not a dead historian. Does this story sound familiar ? Is something like this happening now? The Foundation Saga====Prelude to FoundationFoundationFoundation and EmpireSecond FoundationFoundation and EarthFoundation's Edge The Foundation series is a science fiction series by Isaac Asimov. For nearly thirty years, the series was a trilogy: Foundation, Foundation and Empire, Second Foundation. It won the one-time Hugo Award for "Best All-Time Series" in 1966. Asimov began adding to the series in 1981, with two sequels: Foundation's Edge, Foundation and Earth, and two prequels: Prelude to Foundation, Forward the Foundation. . . . Prelude to Foundation opens on the planet Trantor, the empire's capital planet, the day after Hari Seldon has given a speech at a conference. Several parties become aware of the content of his speech (that using mathematical formulas, it may be possible to predict the future course of human history). Seldon is hounded by the Emperor and various employed thugs who are working surreptitiously, which forces him into exile... . . . As the book progresses, Seldon loses those closest to him, including his wife, Dors Venabili, as his own health deteriorates into old age. Having worked his entire adult life to understand psychohistory, Seldon instructs his granddaughter, Wanda, to set up the Second Foundation. . . . If humanity follows its current path, the Empire will fall and 30,000 years of turmoil will overcome humanity before a second Empire arises. However, an alternative path allows for the intervening years to be only one thousand, if Seldon is allowed to collect the most intelligent minds and create a compendium of all human knowledge, entitled Encyclopedia Galactica. The board is still wary but allows Seldon to assemble whomever he needs, provided he and the "Encyclopedists" be exiled to a remote planet, Terminus. Seldon agrees to set up his own collection of Encyclopedists, and also secretly implements a contingency plan—a second Foundation—at the "opposite end" of the galaxy. Once on Terminus, the inhabitants find themselves at a loss. With four powerful planets surrounding their own, the Encyclopedists have no defenses but their own intelligence. The Mayor of Terminus City, Salvor Hardin, proposes to play the planets against each other. His plan is a success; the Foundation remains untouched, and he is promoted to Mayor of Terminus (the planet). == > wiki : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foundation_series The Foundation Trilogy, by Isaac Asimov (Full Version) Dramatized Science Fiction, SF Radio Show THE FOUNDATION series has an important Climax called a "Seldon Crisis" when something arises which Seldon's predictive psycho-history could not have foreseen, There arose a powerful mutant, The Mule, with psychic powers, who gained more and more power, dragging the Foundation away from its strong growth path - and weakening its ability to act as a replacement for the decaying Empire. The Mule seeks the hidden Second Foundation, which was created to balance the First Foundation, in case it ran into difficulties in its growth path. But the Second Foundation is not in far off space somewhere, it is hidden much closer to home: "... the mysterious Second Foundation comes briefly out of hiding to face the threat directly. It is revealed to be a collection of the most intelligent humans in the galaxy, the descendants of Seldon's psychohistorians. While the first Foundation has developed the physical sciences, the Second Foundation has been developing the mental sciences. Using the might of its strongest minds, the Second Foundation ultimately wears down the Mule. His destructive attitude is adjusted to a benevolent one. He returns to rule over his kingdom peacefully for the rest of his life, without any further thought of conquering the Second Foundation. The first Foundation, learning of the implications of the Second, who will be the true inheritor of Seldon's promised future Empire, greatly resents it—and seeks to find and destroy it, believing it can manage without it. After many attempts to unravel the only clue Seldon had given as to the Second Foundation's whereabouts ("at Star's End"), the Foundation is led to believe the Second Foundation is located on Terminus. By developing a technology which causes great pain to telepaths, the Foundation uncover a group of 50 of them, and destroys them, believing it has thereby won. However, the Second Foundation has planned for this eventuality, and has sent 50 of its members to their deaths as martyrs to preserve its anonymity. At the very end, the Second Foundation is revealed to be located on the former Imperial Homeworld of Trantor itself. The clue "at Star's End" was not a physical clue, but instead based on an old saying, "All roads lead to Trantor, and that is where all stars end". Seldon, being a social scientist and not a physical one, placed the two Foundations at "opposite ends" of the galaxy, but not in a physical sense. Foundation was located on Terminus, out in the Periphery of the galaxy, where the Empire's influence was minimal. Second Foundation was hidden on Trantor, where, even in its dying days, the Empire's power and culture was strongest." To me, Asimov seems to have revealed more than he intended. Living on our planet are the members of various secret societies, who are tightly controlled, with hidden agendas, and different lies functioning at each level. Like Seldon's second Foundation, these societies are alive and breathing, functioning to create the future they desire. It may be one of these groups who are making the predictions of the Bible (our own psycho-history) to become a reality. The secret societies in our world carry out an Agenda that has only been partly revealed to us. It is not "by prophecy" they succeed, but by deliberate actions, false flags, and other psychic magic - which they have cultivated and developed into a high art form which we are only beginning to understand. My Main Point is that we need not live through a soul-crushing Apocalypse, that is within the script used by the Supremacists. We can change the movie and uncover the secret plans of the Supremacy, and choose our own much brighter future. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
