Jeffrey Epstein Wanted to Freeze His Head and Penis After Dying: Report

The bizarre pseudoscientific obsessions of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, currently awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking minors, are under the microscope after he reportedly wanted to freeze his head and penis after dying.

According to The New York Times, Epstein, 66, is interested in the controversial transhumanism movement, which believes advanced technologies should be used to modify and enhance humans' physical capabilities.

One unnamed transhumanist who had conversations with Epstein told the Times about his aspiration to freeze body parts after death using cryonics, a pseudoscience whose proponents claim it will eventually be possible to resurrect frozen people.

The publication also reported that Epstein, who was convicted in 2008 of soliciting a minor for prostitution and made to register as a sex offender, wanted to seed the human race with his DNA by impregnating up to 20 women at a time at his Zorra Ranch in New Mexico.

Epstein is accused of sexually abusing dozens of girls at his various residences and trafficking them for further abuse by his friends and associates.

He used massages as a pretense to abuse what the indictment said was a "vast network" of girls, who were paid hundreds of dollars after each encounter. These girls were encouraged to recruit others, growing Epstein's network of victims.

Jail officers recently found Epstein in his New York City cell barely conscious with marks around his neck after a judge refused bail, in what is suspected to be either a suicide attempt or an assault by another inmate.

It is not clear how Epstein acquired the apparent wealth that allowed him to enjoy properties in New York, Florida, New Mexico, and his own private island in the Caribbean, as well as private jets. He was also a philanthropist, particularly focused on the sciences.

Before and after his initial downfall over a decade ago, Epstein enjoyed friendships with the most wealthy, powerful, and influential people in the world, including former president Bill Clinton, the current President Donald Trump, the British royal Prince Andrew, and many others.

Footage recently aired by MSNBC showed Epstein partying with Trump at the latter's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, both men watching models as they danced.

Back in 2002, Trump said of his former friend Epstein in an interview with New York Magazine: "I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it – Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

If convicted of the latest charges, Epstein, whose private plane was called "Lolita Express," can expect to spend the rest of his life behind bars.
