"Seldon foresees the imminent fall of the 'Empire', which encompasses the entire 'Milky Way' and a dark age lasting 30,000 years before a second empire arises.

"To implement his plan, Seldon creates the 'Foundations'—two groups of scientists and engineers settled at opposite ends of the galaxy—to preserve the spirit of science and civilization, and thus become the cornerstones of the new galactic empire..."
