I know this isn't really the place for this necessarily, but I had an idea for a tale and would enjoy getting some feedback on it from any folks interested in this cannon. I posted the link in the draft section of the forum and any feedback from established writers would be welcome.
What about 682? What happened to it without the foundation?
Random question: Why does the boy die in the "Unfounded" universe? I know on the grand scale of things this doesn't matter, but still, why?
Unless it's supposed to symbolized that whatever happens to the boy may change some things, but not hugely, like the Unfounded hub says… but STILL!
Personally, I interpret the boy to be the man who would become the in-universe "The Administrator" or a founder of the Foundation. Without him, there would be no Foundation.
Of course, such an interpretation leans towards Great Man history… but there are some institutions that are ultimately the works of individuals. If not for Genghis Khan, there would be no "Mongols". Even if another warlord united the would-be Mongols, they may not necessarily be the Mongols we know in history.
Another interpretation from the Korean Wiki(You're free to blame me for all the bad wording through the translation):
izenkel : I think that they are all some figures of speech. The mother and father symbolize the humanity, and the automobile symbolizes the anomalies. Then what about the boy's death? Damages from the anomalies, because of the nonexistence of the Foundation. There is no Foundation, and the humanity will get through the history which is a little different from that we know, and will have much more harm; but life goes on.
