Karl Seldon's Sagacious Sayings Series -- #3. The Mission of Our Foundation.

Dear Readers,

From time to time, I like to share with you some of the gems of insight that leap from out of the '''multilogues''', among Karl Seldon and other members of the Foundation, and from the transcribed versions, published internally, including of those '''multilogues''' in which I did not happen to participate, once those transcripts are cleared for public sharing by the Foundation's General Council.

Here's an excerpt from the transcript of a recent orientation presentation by Karl Seldon for new recruits  --

[Karl Seldon]:

"The mission of Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica -- in the midst of theproto-New-Dark-Ages, descendance-phase, capitalist global civilization/system of present-day planet Terra -- is to propagate, anonymously, and/or pseudonymously, a meta-system of new memes which will, potentially, help Terran humanity to avert that New Dark Age entirely, to avert that ‘‘‘mutual ruin of the contending classes’’’."


. . .


"If it proves not to be possible to avert that impending New Dark Age completely, then our mission is to diffuse memes which will, if possible, help to shorten the duration of that Dark Age -- the duration to humanity’s recovery."
