The Foundation – Part 2
Several of my previous entries have made mention to the Founders. This term, as used in the academic circles of Glaucus, refers to the original men and women who joined the Foundation before the War. The list includes notable greats such as the geneticists James Watson and Craig Venter, roboticists Victor Scheinman and Hans Moravec, neuroscientist and political theorist Nayef Al-Rodhan, and many others. In the disastrous political turmoil leading up to the war they all accepted the refuge the Foundation offered. As a result of their extensive recruitment, when the War came and society collapsed, the seeds of civilization, science and technology were preserved in the Foundation.
