Seldon foresees the imminent fall of the Galactic Empirewhich encompasses the entire Milky Wayand a dark age lasting 30, years before a second great empire arises. Using the few scraps of reliable information within the various myths, Trevize and Pelorat discover a planet called Gaia which is inhabited solely by Mentalics, to such an extent that every organism and inanimate object on the planet shares a common mind.
Eventually, after much traveling and introductions to various, diverse cultures on Trantor, Seldon realizes that using the entire known galaxy as a starting point is too overwhelming; he then decides to use Trantor as a model to work out the science, with a goal of later using the applied knowledge on the rest of the galaxy.

If Hari Seldon is in a bind and needs to find a way out of it, the very next person he’ll meet is the precise one he needs to meet at that time.
Contrary to what seems to be the popular consensus, I actually thoroughly enjoyed this book for what it was. It will develop by facing intermittent and extreme “crises” — known as “Seldon Crises” — which the laws governing psychohistory show will inevitably be overcome, simply because human nature will cause events to fall in particular ways which lead to the intended goal.
At least, that’s the idea. Return to Book Page. Asimov was a master at the big idea. Were it not for introducing important characters who play a larger role in the sequel, there would be little to recommend its place in the story.

In this outing she serves as an eloquent sounding board for Seldon’s frequent riffs and ruminations, while her strong-willed and circumspect presence nicely balance her counterpart’s impetuosity and fitful naivete over the course of their journeys. There’s no blind alleys.
