Jeffrey Epstein’s Transhumanist Efforts Live On

They say that in the aftermath of his 2008 sex trafficking conviction, Jeffrey Epstein wanted to develop an improved super-race of humans using genetic engineering and artificial intelligence and impregnate women with his seed — 20 women at a time. 

Epstein told scientists and businessmen about his ambitions to use his 33,000-sq-ft Zorro Ranch in a tiny town outside Santa Fe as a base where women would be inseminated with his sperm, according to The New York Times. Zorro is just one of his properties where young women, including minors, were abused.

Was Epstein running a baby factory?

He reportedly got the idea from a ‘Repository for Germinal Choice’ which was a sperm bank in Escondido, California, in 1980, founded by Robert K. Graham. He was an avowed eugenicist and tycoon who got rich by developing shatterproof eyeglass lenses. 

According to a 2001 story in Slate, Graham only ever convinced three or five (the stories vary) to actually contribute, and the Repository shuttered in 1999.

One may laugh at the arrogance of this philanthropist parasite sex offender, but Epstein made science sexy, surrounding himself with scientists and scholars, and funding many initiatives to cultivate good genes. That’s what eugenicists are all about. 

And how about the plethora of technofascist transhumanist initiatives he funded? Epstein was integral in fulfilling the elite’s Eugenic Paradise.

People focus on Little Saint James in the Virgin Islands, but how about Zorro Ranch in New Mexico? 

“[Transhumanism is another] one of Egg Dicks weirdo fascinations that isn’t discussed nearly enough,” Bobby Capucci recently told me. He’s been covering the Epstein case for years. (I will be interviewing him again in March 2024. I invite you to watch my previous interviews with him.) 

With that said, others like Jason Bermas, Mel K, and Whitney Webb have dug into this angle at great length. I don’t profess to be an expert or to go as deep as I usually go. Nonetheless, I don’t think there’s been enough coverage compared to his blackmail sex trafficking operation.

Cleaning Money With Science Fiction (Faction)

Jeffrey Epstein had the hookup despite being a college dropout. He was a member of the Edge Foundation, an organization made up of internationally respected thinkers and achievers run by literary agent John Brockman. He was a resident of St. Thomas in the USVI, and was a former member of the Council of Foreign Relations, the New York Academy of Science, The Trilateral Commission, and a former board member of Rockefeller University. He rubbed elbows with celebs and politicians and had his paws in dozens of charities and prestigious universities. He penetrated every sector of our society. 

Epstein also arguably used his nonprofits like the Florida Science Foundation and The COUQ Foundation to advance his agenda. Naked Angels?

In 2000, he created the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation to sponsor cutting-edge scientists like George Church PhD – Professor of Genetics at Harvard;  the evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould; the neurologist and author Oliver Sacks;  and MIT theoretical physicist Frank Wilczek, a Nobel laureate.

The foundation directly funded university departments like Harvard and MIT, individual scientists, and experiments in a wide range of subjects from quantum physics, evolutionary biology, and theoretical mathematics to computer intelligence and neuroscience. 

For instance, the foundation helped fund NeuroTV, an online network devoted to academic interviews on everything neuroscience. The now-defunct show produced more than 13 episodes.  

In 2003, the Foundation established The Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University with a $30 million grant under the direction of Martin Nowak, a professor of Mathematics and Biology whose colleague is Nanotech King Charles Lieber.

“Jeffrey has the mind of a physicist. It’s like talking to a colleague in your field. Sometimes he applies what we talk about to his investments. Sometimes it’s for his own curiosity. He has changed my life. Because of his support, I feel I can do anything I want,” Nowak said in a 2002 profile of Epstein for New York Magazine.

The program closed down because of its ties with sex offender 66-year-old Epstein.

According to the university, Nowak was barred from starting new research or advising students for two years. The sanctions come almost a year after Novak was suspended following a university review that found he had extensive, previously unreported contact with Epstein. Novak had an office for Epstein on campus which he visited more than 40 times between 2010 and 2018.  Epstein also oversaw Harvard’s Mind, Brain, and Behavior Committee at Harvard University. Epstein’s name is not currently on the list of members. 

From 2005 to 2007, Epstein also funded George Church’s Colossal project, which aims to resurrect extinct animals like the wooly mammoth. Church, who is into cloning and making superhumans, would in 2019 apologize publicly on Sixty Minutes. Church was a featured speaker at the Vatican’s ‘Human Enhancement Roundtable” in May 2021 to promote transhumanism and human genome engineering. 

A press release stated:

“It is vital to understand that the Jeffrey Epstein Foundation and the Florida Science Foundation are not ‘piggy banks,’ but facilitators between properly vetted grants and sponsorship funds. They do not exist to simply fund the creation of new projects that come into existence ad infinitum, but rather they seek to fund projects that are based on sound organizational principles, practices, and strategies that can use resources efficiently to advance significantly the frontiers of knowledge in fundamental areas,  drive real and lasting positive social change,  are sustainable and have measurable impact.”

In 2012, an article from The Economist noted that more traditional avenues for scientific funding had dried up, with grant money growing increasingly difficult to come by. Epstein issued a press statement in response, offering his endorsement of scientific giving, even in small amounts. 

“Philanthropy in science is a great way to generate needed publicity for important research being done in laboratories around the world,” Epstein wrote. “With relatively small contributions, one can get scientific research into the headlines. It also makes scientific research more accountable to the public.” 

Artificial Intelligence, Transhumanism & All The Things 

“We are very close to the end of our species,” Yuval Harari, who has been described as “one of the brightest minds on the planet,” recently said. Oh, and the Eugenicist Transhumanist also thinks you are a “useless eater.”

For a while now, overlords have been dumbing down humans while building up machines. And as an elite, Epstein was doing his part to help reach Singularity– the melding of man with machine. Transhumanism is as Whitney Webb says: “Eugenics rebranded.”

Speaking of transhumanism, Epstein was also on the finance board of Lifeboat Foundation which seeks to help humanity survive existential risks and “possible misuse of increasingly powerful technologies, including genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and robotics/AI, as we move towards Singularity.” 

Ray Kurzweil is also linked to LifeBoat. In 2005, the futurist and ex-Google engineer predicted that by 2040, nanotechnology would enable humans to live forever. He also warned about self-replicating nano weapons, and advised on creating a “technological immune system.”

While some publicly distanced themselves, his links to top scientists continued despite his sex crimes. Several years later, publications including Forbes, the National Review, and HuffPo all ran stories on Epstein, praising him as a selfless philanthropist, “a hedge-funder with a zealous science background”, and “one of the largest backers of cutting-edge science around the world.” They’ve since revamped their praise or 404’d the articles

In 2011, Epstein gave money to the World Transhumanist Association, Inc., a project that now operates as Humanity+, an international technoprogressive nonprofit membership organization that advocates the ethical use of technologies and evidence-based science to improve the human condition. 

The current Board of Directors includes Ben Goertzel, who is a computer scientist, artificial intelligence researcher, and businessman. He helped popularize the term ‘artificial general intelligence’.

Humanity+ sees its role as a primary advocate for positive transhumanist values.

Later, Natasha Vita-More, the executive director of Humanity+ and a matriarch of transhumanism issued a denial of awareness that Epstein was the source of a 2018 $100,000 donation to Humanity+, while not mentioning his previous donations to them.  

“This AI research is diametrically opposed to the exploitative and abusive behaviors of Mr. Epstein that were recently revealed in the news. At the time we accepted this donation from Gratitude America, Ltd., Humanity+ had no knowledge of Mr. Epstein’s horrific alleged criminal activity, and we strongly condemn it.”

In an email to BuzzFeed News, she said, “When Mr. Epstein did donate to Humanity+, it was long before any news broke about his unethical behavior.” 

Humanity+ received $20,000 from Epstein Interests in 2010, after Epstein’s conviction. Vita-More said that the money was used for AI research.  

Meanwhile, the Jeffrey Epstein Foundation claimed credit for helping to launch an OpenCog lab in Ethiopia.

a leading AI group in Hong Kong, which was founded in 2008 by Humanity+’s Goertzel, develops software for artificial intelligence. The ongoing development of OpenCog is also supported by the Artificial General Intelligence Research Institute (AGIRI), the Google Summer of Code project, Hanson Robotics, & SingularityNET.

Epstein also funded Hanson Robotics & Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies IEET. Goertzel is also behind IEET along with SingularityNet, a project that was founded to distribute artificial intelligence data via blockchains. 

“I have no desire to talk about Epstein right now. The stuff I’m reading about him in the papers is pretty disturbing and goes way beyond what I thought his misdoings and kinks were. Yecch,” said Goertzel. 

And that was that. 

In 2023, Goertzel postulated that artificial intelligence could replace up to 80 percent of human jobs in the coming years.  

When I looked up Goertzel, I realized that I’d heard him speak in 2018 in Orange County. It was a Life Extension Longevity conference and he was on the stage with Ray Kurzweil and his brainchild Sophia the Robot.

He looked like a Grateful Dead fan, not the ‘Father of AI.’ Goertzel has been lauded by Joe Rogan Experience, Lex Friedman Show, and London Real. 

During an interview with Charles Robinson of MacroAgressions, he told me that there is also a “Little Sophia.”

“To move children faster into the world of A.I.”, was what Hanson Robotics described as the reason for the robot doll. 

Robinson postulated, ‘What happens if there is a camera or a microphone in that thing?’ 

Imagine this scenario: a young child of 11 or 12 is having disputes with her parents. She gets on someone’s radar as an ideal target to kidnap or recruit. You get the drift. 

There are boatloads of other people and projects involving transhumanism that the convicted sex offender funded. Aside from being charged as a pedophile, he was also involved in electronic blackmail and trafficking of data. 

Whether Epstein killed himself or not, he was the central hub of a lot of things, including a transhumanist cabal.  Epstein has had a significant impact on the Transhumanist movement; an impact that sadly will be with us for a long time to come.
