This track explores the intersection of the philosophy found within Isaac Asimov's foundation series and Saint Ignatius of Loyola's First Principle and Foundation -- both of which call us to continuously strive to know more deeply. On an unrelated note, Michael just finished reading the Foundation Trilogy and highly recommends it, and he went to a Jesuit University...


When I look up at the heavens, it is there I find my foundation. The stars sing to me a story of who I am, and of who I am to become; a vast history waiting to be discovered, a brilliant future waiting to be written. I come to find that I am made of the pieces created when so many past beings sacrificed themselves to allow me the chance to experience this creation. Oh how indebted I am to all who came before me--for those who sacrificed so that I may be!

If I am to accomplish anything it must be to know this foundation that has given rise to my being. It seems that everything I find is here to help me to this end, and nothing should stop me from the giving of my whole being to this cause. For what could be more noble, more holy than to know that which has created me? This is my foundation.
