What is PROJECT RM? Project Renaissance Man or PROJECT RM is the government’s answer to what would happen to civilization if an Extinction Level Event (ELE) were to wipe out most of humanity.
The Issue: In the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the government realized if an ELE occurred humanity might not survive. At the very least, we would be thrown back to the Middle Ages, or worse: No working communications, no production of vital medicines, lack of working energy infrastructure, lack of leadership…
The answer: Find the most brilliant minds in America, young polymaths. These young men and women could become experts in multiple disciplines. One might be an engineer, a medical doctor, and a poet. Another might be an expert in agriculture, defense strategies, and theoretical physics. Think of a modern Da Vinci. As Joseph Solomon said, “If even one survives, humanity has a chance. If many survive, we have a bright future.”
The mission: Help prevent an ELE, but if it can’t be prevented preserve “thousands of years of progress and billions of silenced voices.”
