Hello Sir, I am a big fan of sir isaac asimov and foundation is like my religious book.i read foundation series about 5 years ago and my spiritual awakening happened a several months ago.i know about asimov's wish and i figure out why he didn't write much about 2nd foundation and why he granted you guys to write it. so i wanna know something.is there any second foundation exist? if yes then i wanna join it because asimov's dream is just like my dream.if no,then i wanna get more knowledge about human mind and i guess you can help me with that.thank you.
