This article is just a brief introduction to Epstein and “The Edge”. There is much of the archives to be explored and from the Edge there are links to much of Epstein’s activity, and people associated.
Checking the archived pages it appears that Epstein has been a member of the Edge from at least 1999 – Jun 2019
This is March 2019
Clicking on the pictures should take you into the appropriate archive.
Epstein is now expunged from its list of people https://www.edge.org/people and was in about Jun 2019 I believe, some time before his announced death.
Edge.org was launched in 1996 as the online version of “The Reality Club” and as a living document on the Web to display the activities of “The Third Culture.”
The Reality Club “was an informal gathering of intellectuals who met from 1981 to 1996 in Chinese restaurants, artist lofts, investment banking firms, ballrooms, museums, living rooms and elsewhere. Reality Club members presented their work with the understanding that they will be challenged. The hallmark of The Reality Club has been rigorous and sometimes impolite (but not ad hominem) discourse.”
The motto of the Club was inspired by the late artist-philosopher James Lee Byars: “To arrive at the edge of the world’s knowledge, seek out the most complex and sophisticated minds, put them in a room together, and have them ask each other the questions they are asking themselves.” https://www.edge.org/about-edgeorg
However a dig through the archives exposes a few interesting items. I have only picked a few items from his bio and not explored others, so dive in, there is still loads to discover..
Jeffreys “bio” in Jun 2013, but many are available.
If you click on the pictures it should take you to the archive pages. However delving in the archives can be a confusing and complex business, so please point out if the wrong date archive has been used.
Some links in the archived material itself do not work, but the pages may be available on a different date or via a different link or via the current Edge page, so explore..
JEFFREY E. EPSTEIN is a money manager and science philanthropist who currently serves as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Trust Company. Mr. Epstein started his career at Bear Stearns with an educational background in physics. He has been a Trustee of Institute Of International Education Inc. since October 2001.
Mr. Epstein is a Member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the New York Academy of Science and a former Rockefeller University Board Member. Mr. Epstein is also actively involved in the Santa Fe Institute, the Theoretical Biology Initiative at the Institute for Advanced Study, the Quantum Gravity Program at the University of Pennsylvania, and also sits on the Mind, Brain & Behavior Advisory Committee at Harvard.
Jeffrey Epstein’s philanthropic affiliations include the Jeffrey Epstein Foundation, the Florida Science Foundations and The COUQ Foundation. He is a member of the Edge community, an internationally respected group of thinkers and achievers.
Money Manager and Science Philanthropist sounds so much better than child rapist and child trafficker! Later it is changed to Financier.
Epstein’s conviction after pleading guilty to procuring an underaged prostitute was in 2008 so they had plenty of time to update the bio but chose not to. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7344181/Billionaire-Jeffrey-Epstein-dies-suicide-inside-Manhattan-jail-cell.html
Any of the Epstein organisations would be worth digging into. The more people that research the better.
Financial Trust Company
This was found in 2018 to be a fraud – a Ponzi Scheme.
In August 2018, a class-action lawsuit was filed against The Financial Trust Company for allegedly operating a fraudulent Ponzi Scheme that resulted in the loss of “hundreds of million dollars … to over 200,000 investors who … invested in securities based on false memoranda, financial statements and supporting documents which promised profitable investments and high returns.” Plaintiffs also named an individual “co-conspirator” of the scheme in the complaint for allegedly misrepresenting how the invested money would be used, and for allegedly misappropriating funds for his own personal use to support his “lavish lifestyle.” (Gerber et al v. The Financial Trust Co. and Jeffrey Epstein, Case No. 18-cv-7580, S. D. NY.) http://archive.fo/6AP1R
Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations
These bodies are de facto supra national bodies which decide international policy that Governments follow. They are known for neoliberal and neoconservative policies and links to Rockefellers. http://archive.fo/4Yl49
The fact that Epstein was on these bodies shows that he was endorsed by the powers that be, which are above the Governments. For optics purposes in this weird world we live in, the real powers in this world are barely referred to by corporate media and the facade of national democracy is maintained.
Cheney in this video below makes this apparent.

Each year the Edge would have certain questions which members could contribute to. In 2004 the theme was Laws. Epstein chose his two laws
Epstein’s First Law – Know when you are winning.
Epstein’s Second Law – The key question is not what can I gain but what do I have to lose.
The Edge was started by John Brockman and now run by his son, Max Brockman.
Evgeny Morozov recently wrote an article explain how John Brockman had detailed in an email to him how Prince Andrew had been having foot massages from Epsteins girls.
To reduce confusion between American English and English English, American suspenders are what English call braces, (so in this instance, at least Prince Andrew was not wearing English suspenders, which the Americans call garters).
Brockman is obviously not bothered by Epsteins child abuse, he just refers to it as “trouble”, mentions he went to jail but still encourages people to meet him.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN SCIENCE
Investing in Science Research and Education Throughout the World
Jeffrey Epstein Science is part of the The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation. It was founded in 2000 to support cutting edge science research around the world. Its areas of focus range from physics to neuroscience, artificial intelligence, evolutionary theory and medical research. In the field of medicine, Jeffrey Epstein Science has a large focus on genetic engineering in the fields of cancer, alzheimers and parkinsons disease. The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation is based in New York City, New York and St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands.
In 2003, the Foundation established the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University. The Program is under the direction of Martin Nowak, Professor of Biology and Mathematics at Harvard. The Program uses mathematics to analyze evolution, most notably the evolution of micro life systems. Since its inception, the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics has provided ground breaking research in the evolution of genes, viruses and cancer cells. It has also offered novel insights into the origins of life from RNA monomer sequences. The Program is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
In addition to sponsoring science research, the Foundation holds regular conferences to bring together the best minds on significant scientific subjects. Recent conferences have covered such topics as gravity, global threats to the earth and the evolution of language. Scientists have gathered from all over the world to share their thoughts and have included several Nobel Laureates. Jeffrey Epstein Science also hosts a science forum, hosting discussions on a wide range of scientific topics. Readers participate from around the world.
Many universities and institutes have received funding from the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation including, Harvard University, Princeton University, Columbia University, New York University, Cornell University, Pepperdine University, Ohio State University, Stanford University, UCLA, The Santa Fe Institute, Rockefeller University and Penn University.
The Foundation has also had the priviledge of sponsoring many prominent scientists including Gerald Edelman, Murray Gell-Mann, Eric Lander, George Church, Stephen Hawking, Kip Thorne, Marvin Minsky, Lawrence Krauss, Lee Smolin and Gregory Benford and Nobel laureates, Gerard ‘t Hooft, David Gross and Frank Wilczek.
[Some of the above links only available on http not https including this one https://web.archive.org/web/20130321063538/http://www.jeffreyepsteinfoundation.com/ so they need to be changed in the archive to http]
I am not sure whether this is yet widely known but it was a new fact to me shown on the snapshot above that Science Conferences were actually held on St Thomas Island (see above) and attended by Gerardus ‘t Hooft, David Gross and Frank Wilczek, Stephen Hawking, Jim Peebles from Princeton University, ALan Guth from MIT, Lisa Randall from Harvard, Barry Barish from LIGO and Maria Spiropulu from CERN, among others.
Bearing in mind that Epstein ran a underage sex blackmail operation probably on behalf on CIA and Mossad, it is entirely probably that these scientists were filmed in private areas such as bedrooms for any possible blackmail. Equally various enticements may have been offered to these scientists during their stay. They all need to be contacted and interviewed by the Police.
All the scientists need to explain what they knew.
There are allegations of abuse perpetrated by Hawking but the link eludes me for now. This link is a general Hawking one. http://archive.fo/CHecQ
Apologies for not putting the links in my normal format. Unfortunately, I dont have the time nor energy.

“The digerati (or digirati) are the elite of digitalization, social media, content marketing, computer industry and online communities. The word is a portmanteau, derived from “digital” and “literati”, and reminiscent of the earlier coinage glitterati (glitter and literati). Famous computer scientists, tech magazine writers, digital consultants with multi-year experiences and well-known bloggers are included among the digerati.”
