Hari Seldon Stage
Stage BAS

Isaac Asimov’s Foundation sci-fi series has inspired generations of scientists around the globe. The series centers around the application of psychohistory -- a fictional new scientific discipline developed by the story’s lead protagonist Hari Seldon. Put succinctly, psychohistory aggregates huge amounts of data to predict future watershed events. When such events take place, Seldon argues, the forces of historical, economic and societal forces would dictate the course of action for decision-makers to follow. Thereby, their free will would become irrelevant.
Seldon applied  psychohistory to predict the eventual fall of the 12,000 years old Galactic Empire and the rise of a more politically, technologically and socially advanced new empire -- which he dubbed as the Foundation.
