Manhattan Project 2.0 part 1

The Story of the Millennium:
The A.G.I. Manhattan Project
Are you ready for the future?

What does this man mean by becoming "gods", and has his war already begun?

What is AGI, and how large is the effort to make it happen? Will humans as we know ourselves today remain the dominant species on the planet in the near future? Why did the economic meltdown occur? Can we look forward to a future of economic prosperity? What do we have to fear, and what don't we? What does the War on Terror have in common with Global Warming? What will government look like in the near future? Are we becoming slaves, and how can we be empowered like never before? What is the true struggle of the 21st Century? What are the dangers of emerging technology?

These are just some of the realities and implications you're about to discover, and the AGI Manhattan Project is the key to it all.

Part 1: The AGI Manhattan Project
Page last updated: 7/15/2010

First we must establish the what the AGI Manhattan Project is, and what is is about.

Radical life extension and cognitive augmentation are the overarching goals of the technological establishment. These types of advances are each aspects of the growing movement known as "Transhumanism", where the goals is to modify humans using various technologies to transform into a dominant new species of "posthumans". They literally believe they'll be able to live for hundreds upon hundreds of years, and have superior cognitive and physical abilities by utilizing various emerging technologies such as biotechnology and nanotechnology. 
The first and foremost "holy grail" in this overall effort is Strong AI, aka Artificial General Intelligence. The world is full of AI: from video games to the stock market. But these AI's are "narrow" in ability. AGI refers to a "general" intelligence. Generally intelligent, not narrowly. Human level and beyond intelligence would greatly accelerate their other technological goals kicking off what they call the "Technological Singularity".

Regardless of whether or not you believe this to be possible they're actively doing it. Regardless of whether or not you agree they're taxing you to do it. There is absolutely no debate or refutation to this fact whatsoever. This isn't even to say their dreams are possible, but they're trying with all of their might (and your money) to do it. It's right on public military websites, and in video statements by the higher ups and even heads of top tech corporations. The New York Times even recently did a piece, titled "Merely Human? That’s So Yesterday", that championed Ray Kurzweil, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, Peter A. Thiel, Peter H. Diamandis and Keith Kleiner as being at the forefront of the Singularian Movement. The Singularity University, located at NASA's Ames Research Center, is their epicenter.

Perhaps most importantly, especially considering how if they succeed it would be undoubtedly the biggest event in human history, and most potentially devastating, with almost no chance of turning back, it's all happening without an ounce of public discourse or debate.

This overall effort openly involves virtually every government agency and department, every branch of military, which are all funded by Congress, and led by the administrations of both George Walker Bush and Barack Hussein Obama. It also involves the projects and supercomputers at literally all major all national laboratories, along with virtually all national universities, and all of the above tied in with the majority of the crony heads of the top technology corporations.

The Intelligence Industrial Complex
In July of 2010, the Washington Post unveiled "Top Secret America", a massive 2 year investigative journalism story with an interactive presentation detailing the post-9/11 security and intelligence apparatus. Their investigation into this realm of the Military Industrial Complex uncovered some 1,271 government organizations, 1,931 private companies in about 10,000 locations, an estimated 854,000 contractors holding top-secret security clearances,  all working on programs related to counter-terrorism, homeland security and intelligence  across the United States. In Washington, and the surrounding area 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work are under construction or have been built since September 2001. Together they occupy the equivalent of almost three Pentagons or 22 U.S. Capitol buildings - about 17 million square feet of space.

All of that based on the premise of stopping Al Qaeda. Now 100% of the above wouldn't be exactly be specifically about building AGI, but that is the overall security and domestic spying apparatus. What their massive report didn't tabulate is the direct AGI Manhattan Project efforts being conducted primarily by DARPA, NASA, NIST and the NSF.


The Pentagons mad science coordination division, aka Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), sits at the top of this dragnet of science research & development (R&D) gathering. Enter the heart of science pyramid... the AGI Manhattan Project.

DARPA is the lead agency. They are both the capstone, and the foundation. They coordinate national labs & universities, companies and corporations, and agencies with all branches of military. Their scientific "thrusts" run the entire gauntlet of transhumanism related efforts, from cybernetics to life extension to next-gen Skynet level artificially intelligent cognitive computers. They direct the R&D to the most appropriate groups and institutions, and then help orchestrate systems wide integration upon completion.

To cite all relevant quotes from their various programs could take half a book. At this juncture there's only space to list and link the programs, which are basically all modules of the same goal:
Architectures for Cognitive Information Processing (ACIP), Biologically-Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA), Omnipresent High Performance Computing (OHPC), Real-World Reasoning (REAL), Cognitive Assistant that Learns (CALO), Deep Green (DG), Cognitive Information Processing Technology, Physical intelligence (PI), NetTrack (NT), Bootstrapped Learning (BL), Deep Learning, Integrated Learning (IL), Transfer Learning (TL), Accelerated Learning, Machine Reading (MR), Robustness of Biologically-Inspired Networks (RoBIN), Ubiquitous High Performance Computing (UHPC), Neurotechnology for Intelligence Analysts, Bio-Molecular Nano-Devices/Systems (MOLDICE), Biomimetic Computing, RealNose, Towards a Unification of Inference, Reasoning and Learning, Global Autonomous Language Exploitation (GALE), Self-Regenerative Systems (SRS), and Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics (SyNAPSE).

This video was made using all government / military quotes and imagery.

It's very difficult to even attempt to place budget figures on DARPA. They have their budget, as well as their cousins IARPA & HSARPA, while a lot of work by NASA, the NSF is in lockstep, not to mention military black budgets and secretive CIA & DIA budgets.

Funding for virtually every aspect of government agendas has hardly even decreased, while many areas have seen increases. The unique thing about DARPA is they aren't limited by their budget alone.


Singularity University, Intelligent Archives (IA), Intelligent Systems, High-End Computing Capability (HECC), Integrated Systems Research, Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Cognitive Sciences, and a dizzying array of other complex projects in those research areas. One project in particular stands out here:

NASA's "Planetary Skin" program seeks to build a "global nervous system" network of sensors to monitor the entire planet, with all nations hooked into the system. It's being sold on over-hyped Global Warming alarmism, and it intends to help the global management of resources, building a new carbon based economy. Watch the video. By its very nature it's the ultimate act of high treason, a total stampede over national privacy and sovereignty, that's costing us $100 million in it's initial phase.

National Science Foundation (NSF)

Adaptive Systems Technology (AST), Cyber-enabled Discovery and Innovation (CDI), Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Emerging Frontiers (EF), Core BIO Investments, Adaptive Systems Technology (AST), Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS), Science and Engineering Beyond Moore’s Law, Cyber-physical Systems, Cognitive Engineering, Mapping the Brain in Time and Space, Cognitive Engineering,


One good example of virtually every government agency working in lockstep towards the Technological Singularity is the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The following institutions are all coordinated under the NNI, by the cabinet level National Science and Technology Council (NSTC):
Bureau of Industry and Security, Consumer Product Safety Commission,USDA, Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Army Engineering R&D Center, Army Research Laboratory (ARL), Army Research Office (ARO), DARPA, Defense Research & Engineering (DDR&E), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Office of Naval Research (ONR), Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Department of Treasury, EPA, FDA, Forest Service, US Intelligence Community, U.S. International Trade Commission, NIH, NIST, NASA, NSF, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Patent and Trademark Office and the US Geological Survey.

NBIC Conference

Another prime example of the system wide drive for the Singularity is a 2001 conference organized by the Dept. of Commerce and the NSF, which produced a 482 page document titled "Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance". It had representatives and speakers from the following institutions:

The White House, National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Commerce, Newt Gingrich, NASA, National Institutes of Health, Hewlet Packard, Institute for Global Futures, National Science and Technology Councils Subcommittee on Nanoscale Science Engineering and Technology (NSET), IBM, Raytheon, Lucent, University of California, Stanford University, Sandia National Labs, Brandeis University, MIT, University of Washington, University of Strathclyde, Tissue Informatics, University of Pennsylvania, University of Louisville, NYU Medical School, University of Calgary, Duke University, University of Texas, UCSB, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Carnegie Melon University, Department of Defense, DARPA, Naval Research Laboratory, Defense For Research, New England Complex Systems Institute, University of Virginia, University of Maryland, Institute of Nanotechnology, Office of Science and Technology Policy, Commission on the Future of Aerospace, US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, The EPA, Department of Chemistry, Princeton Materials Institute …

The goal of the meeting wasn't merely to promote the 4 "NBIC" technologies:

"Four transforming tools have emerged: nanotechnology for hardware, biotechnology for dealing with living systems, information technology for communication and control, and cognition-based technologies to enhance human abilities and collective behavior."

Instead it was about structuring collaborative research to promote the converging of the 4 revolutionary science paradigms into an all new form of substrate. The goal being eventually to create and merge humans with new forms of synthetic "life", to become "Post Humans", and to merge humans into a brain implant enabled "hive mind" (that's a quote):

Hive Mind
If we can easily exchange large chunks of knowledge and are connected by high-bandwidth communication paths, the function an d purpose served by individuals becomes unclear. Individuals have served to keep the gene pool stirred up and healthy via s exual reproduction, but this data-handling process would no longer necessarily be linked to individuals. With knowledge no longer encapsulated in individuals, the distinction between individuals and the entirety of humanity would blur. Think Vulcan mind-meld. We would perhaps become more of a hive mind —an enormous, single, intelligent entity.

Singularity University
Another choice example of cross-sector collaboration to construct the Singularity, is the Singularity University, which is housed at none other than the NASA Ames Reserch Center (ARC), in Silicon Vally. It's partners include Google, ePlanet, Autodesk, Motorola, FIAP, Steelcase, 23andMe, Canon, LinkedIn, Wordpress, KurzweilAI, University of California, Stanford and others.

Google was the primary institution behind the Singularity University, which is no surprise considering Google's co-founders have repeatedly stated on the record that they intend to develop AI that in their words "would be like the mind of God", which by default would be AGI. AGI is in effect the first sentence on their corporate philosophy page. Their mission statement is to gather and organize all of the worlds information (literally all of it), and their statements are for their machine to understand all it it better than you or I ever could. This includes every book, scientific paper, web page, email, instant message, news & magazine article,      ever written by humans that they can manage to get their hands on. It also includes images, user made videos (not even only those posted on YouTube), every movie and TV show ever recorded.

From there, Google is rapidly expanding into the phone and soon to be TV markets. While the TV side will only let them spy on you as well as the TV can, the phone market gives them real time GPS tracking with audio & camera monitoring. They're on the record saying they already monitor everyone via their PC microphones, and it doesn't end there. Google’s model from the ground up is in building what they call “the mind of god”, knowing and "understanding everything in the world", and in this pursuit they’re connected to the government and military to the core. The Google Boys truly are brilliant, as they’ve designed their system and all of their products to make the system smarter every time all of their users use them. Meaning, every time you use their ‘free’ services, and things like their phones, you help bring their “mind of god” scenario closer to reality. It's important to note that Google has a 1.2 million square foot research complex leased on NASA's ARC, which is a borderline military facility. The main Googleplex HQ is almost literally next door neighbors of the ARC, and they use it to land their corporate and private aircraft. Google was a NASA / DARPA / NSF / CIA funded startup, and today they're openly partnered with the NSA which has an open record of spying on the U.S. populace.

Google is but one corporate example.

Apple recently purchased a DARPA AGI-precursor pet project named "Siri" (PAL / CALO), for a cool $200 million. They didn't actually buy it from DARPA, instead they bought it from Stanford Research Institute (SRI) who DARPA paid $150 million to make. That's right, US taxpayers paid SRI $150 million to then turn around and sell the product to Apple for another $200 million, while themselves keeping what they need to build even more powerful AI in less time.

While Google is at the AGI forefront in software, IBM is leading the AGI renaissance in revolutionary hardware and mammalian brain simulation. Projects range from their Blue Brain to DARPA's SyNAPSE (as explained by them in the video above). IBM's Almaden Research Center is a major hub in AGI coordination where they host annual conferences for AGI luminaries to have a gathering of the minds.

When talking about hardware don't leave out Intel. The Singularity is the passion of their CTO, as he explains in the video above and countless others. They're even working on brain implants, perhaps to help Google reach their dream of everyone having Google built into their brains.

Hewlet Packard's 10 year "Central Nervous System for the Earth" (CeNSE) program is likely the inspiration behind NASA's Planetary Skin. They seem to have been in the lead of their own little realm of AGI Panopticon, while the other bigshot corporations take care of the rest of its aspects.

Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Yahoo, Sun, and endless others are also lockstep in the AGI Manhattan Project, all envious of Google's leading role. It needs to be noted that federal funding budgets don't include the funding allocated by these corporations themselves, or other outsiders, making assessing the true funding of the AGI Manhattan Project virtually impossible, but just going by non-secretive federal budget numbers it's in the billions annually, not to mention parallel efforts in the UK & EU.

The 110th U.S. Congress, released a report on the Singularity, in 2007:

Every exponential curve eventually reaches a point where the growth rate becomes almost infinite. This point is often called the Singularity. If technology continues to advance at exponential rates, what happens after 2020? Technology is likely to continue, but at this stage some observers forecast a period at which scientific advances aggressively assume their own momentum and accelerate at unprecedented levels, enabling products that today seem like science fiction. Beyond the Singularity, human society is incomparably different from what it is today. Several assumptions seem to drive predictions of a Singularity. The first is that continued material demands and competitive pressures will continue to drive technology forward. Second, at some point artificial intelligence advances to a point where computers enhance and accelerate scientific discovery and technological change. In other words, intelligent machines start to produce discoveries that are too complex for humans. Finally, there is an assumption that solutions to most of today’s problems including material scarcity, human health, and environmental degradation can be solved by technology, if not by us, then by the computers we eventually develop.


While the AGI Manhattan Project really came to being under Bush (the "Christian"), Obama has brought it out of the lab and into his house. Obama, who likes to talk about innovation in technological revolutions, put one Zachary Lemnios as DoD Director of Defense Research & Engineering. This guy helped setup DARPA’s IPTO to spearhead the type of AI you see in the movies.

“America risks being left behind in the global economy: Revolutionary advances in information technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology and other fields are reshaping the global economy. Without renewed efforts, the United States risks losing leadership in science, technology and innovation.”

That's what Obama's campaign website said the day he was elected (which is completely removed now). The “Revolutionary” advances he’s talking about are Artificial General Intelligence (“information technology”), genetic engineering / synthetic biology & designer babies (“biotechnology”), and too much in terms of nanotechnology to sound-byte like the others. The “other fields” he mentioned is almost certainly the other field he didn’t mention, cognitive sciences.

Google is at the forefront of this thing, with as deep of governmental integration as is possible (literally), including today with agents embedded in the Obama administration. Google CEO Eric Schmidt and their "Chief Internet Evangelist" Vint Cerf were on Obama's campaign team, and campaigned with him on the Obama jet, and was then immediately appointed 'Special Economic Adviser' on a panel of Federal Reserve and Goldman Sachs henchmen. Today he sits on Obama's President's Council of Advisers on Science and Technology. Google managers and employees were some of the strongest supporters of candidate Obama, donating around $803,000 to his presidential campaign, according to the website Among corporate employees, only staffers at Goldman Sachs and Microsoft gave more.
Google's fingerprints are visible on a broad new report on the future of the Internet and information commissioned by the Knight Foundation and the Aspen Institute. The paper calls for greater broadband deployments and "open-access policies." FCC chairman Julius Genachowski and the administration's chief technology officer, Aneesh Chopra, praised the report, saying it would guide Obama's web policy. The co-chair of the commission that wrote the report? Google vice president Marissa Mayer.

Read my lips: 'No Lobbyists In My Administration'! Some other Google agents in the Obama administration include Sonal Shah, Sumit Agarwal, Andrew McLaughlin and formerly Katie Jacobs Stanton.

Ray Kurzweil is essentially the messiah of the transhumanist movement, and in 2007 he did a double-header keynote speech with Obama in front of United Church of Christ in Hartford, Connecticut.

Al Gore

At the SC09 (Supercomputing 2009) conference, Gore, the main keynote speaker at the event, in his speech titled "Building Solutions - Energy, Climate and Computing for a Changing World", to an audience of 11,000 top technologists and technocrats, he argued that 'supercomputing' will save us from Global Warming.  This wouldn't be the first time he's implied supercomputers will be our savior. In 2005, in front of nearly 2,000 technologists and technocrats, at Stanford's Memorial Auditorium, Al Gore had then also appealed to massive supercomputers as being the savior from global warming. The audience was filled with Silicon Valley luminaries: Apple's Steve Jobs; Google's Larry Page and Eric Schmidt; Internet godfather Vint Cerf; Yahoo!'s Jerry Yang; venture capitalists John Doerr, Bill Draper, and Vinod Khosla; former Clinton administration defense secretary William Perry; and a cross section of CEOs, startup artists, techies, tinkerers, philanthropists, and investors of every political and ethnic stripe.

The goal: to enlist the assembled leaders in finding market-driven, technological solutions to global warming and then, in quintessential Silicon Valley style, to rapidly disseminate their ideas and change the world. "I need your help here," an emotional Gore pleaded at the end of the evening. "Working together, we can find the technologies and the political will to solve this problem." The crowd fell hard. "People were surprised," says Wendy Schmidt, who helped organize the event and, with her husband, Google CEO Eric Schmidt, supported Gore's 2000 presidential campaign.

Ever since Al "lost" the 2000 election, he's been serving on the Senior Board of Directors at Google, as well as at Apple Computer since 2003. The 1986 “National Science Foundation Authorization Act”, which was, in part, for the establishment of a global warming policy. What’s typically overlooked is the 2nd part of that same Act that was for the drive for the NSF/DARPA “supercomputing” program. Then, only 2 years later, in 1988, Gore authored legislation to:


Al also campaigned for U.S. President that year, and according to him, his main goal of that campaign was more about increasing awareness of global warming than it was about actually winning.

Today Google enjoys perhaps the deepest government integration in history, with their primary operations being centered around AGI, and Apple just recently bought DARPA's 'Skynet precursor' from SRI. Until 2009, Eric Schmidt sat on Apple's Board of Directors with Al Gore, both of whom were implicated in a 2006 stock options backtrading scandal with Steve Jobs.

Newt Gingrich

Decades ago he was closely allied with Al Gore's "Atari Democrats", and futurist Alvin Toffler, which had left a lot of people scratching their heads as to why he was the top "Republican" for so long. At that "Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance" event, Newt Gingrich did the key keynote presentation, and in it he refers to our current era in time as the “Age of Transitions”:

We are starting to live through two patterns of change. The first is the enormous computer and communications revolution described above. The second, only now beginning to rise, is the combination of  the nanotechnology-biology-information revolution. These two S curves will overlap. It is the overlapping period that we are just beginning to enter, and it is that period that I believe will be an Age of Transitions.

Focusing on computers and communications is only the first step toward understanding the Age of Transitions. While we are still in the early stages of the computer-communications pattern of change, we are already beginning to see a new, even more powerful pattern of change that will be built on a synergistic interaction between three different areas: the nano world, biology, and information. The sciences have reached a watershed at which they must combine in order to advance most rapidly. The new renaissance must be based on a holistic view of science and technology that envisions new technical possibilities and focuses on people. The unification of science and technology can yield results over the next two decades on the basis of four key principles: material unity at the nanoscale, NBIC transforming tools, hierarchical systems, and improvement of human performance. After he resigned (right while Bill Clinton was being impeached), he went on to stand together with Hillary Clinton in setting up computerized health records. One the one hand it can help some people, on the other it completely deprivatizes our health records by allowing the federal government instant access.

Manhattan Project v2.0
National laboratories are the final "public" realm. Literally all of them, and their supercomputers are fully integrated into the aforementioned apparatus. One example of choice would be Los Alamos, which was the home of the original Manhattan Project. They're hooked up, along with many leading universities, into the NSF's TeraGrid network, which is a super high speed advanced version of the Internet, designed specifically for large scale science collaboration across institutions, enabling access to the various different top-in-class supercomputers. What puts DARPA at the top of the scientific pyramid is that they have access to mining literally every resource, meaning even indirectly supportive work done at different levels are still at their disposal for concept and results mining.

It can be ascertained that the countless thousands of people indirectly involved in it don't even realize what they're a part of. With global telecommunications now being radically different than 60 years ago, private intranets can connect up any remote office or personal computer as a collective.

This means that a modern day Manhattan Project could be operated across the planet in 'secret' with great ease. This would especially be the case if you had literally a million or more parallel platformed CPU’s at your disposal (like Google does). Consider that computing power per $1,000 is literally less than millionth what was during the Manhattan Project, and that project only cost about US$24 billion. Anything even resembling a modern semiconductor computer hadn’t even been invented yet. Meanwhile, every year their capabilities expand as CPU prices drop and work gets easier, exponentially, thanks to Moore’s Law and the Law of Accelerating Returns. The original Manhattan Project had about 100,000 workers, mostly all doing physical labor. The AGI Manhattan Project can easily have more than that figure, mostly all doing direct scientific research.

The Debate Over The AGI Manhattan Project Is Over!
Unlike the issues being exploited to operate it, there's no debating the existence of the AGI Manhattan Project. It can be ascertained that the countless thousands of people indirectly involved in it don't even realize what they're a part of. With global telecommunications now being radically different than 60 years ago, private intranets can connect up any remote office or personal computer as a collective. This means that a modern day Manhattan Project could be operated across the planet in 'secret' with great ease. This would especially be the case if you had literally a million or more parallel platformed CPU’s at your disposal (like Google does).

Consider that computing power per $1000 is literally less than millionth what was during the Manhattan Project, and that project only cost about US$24 billion.

The original Manhattan Project had about 100,000 workers, mostly all doing physical labor. The AGI Manhattan Project can easily have more than that figure, mostly all doing direct scientific research.

The issue is what the intentions of the true elites that shape U.S. policy have in mind for all of this. Listening to the PR people of transhumanism should offer a safe insight: becoming "gods".

There's a war being waged against us. A great many of the people on the planet are feeling the effects from this already, via the economic meltdown. While the economic war didn't against us started generations ago, the modern technological war came before the economic assault, so we'll explore that first.
