TOP SECRET/MAJIC/PLUTO/ARC DREAM
As in the previous PLUTO analysis, this document does not discuss tradecraft, financing or anything other than the technologies under development. It is not the intent of this document to dissect March Technologies, Frontier Biologic, Fluid Neuronics, Tri-Axon Systems, or any other Majectic-12 contractors.
ARC DREAM is a sub-project of MJ-6 PLUTO which handles biotechnology transfers from an alien intelligence known as the Greys. The Greys have provided a document known as "the CookBook" which purports to open the doors to all earthly biology. ARC DREAM primarily serves a management and bureaucratic function for it's sub-projects. There are four sub-projects under the auspices of ARC DREAM; BOUNCE, CATALYST, CORE and RECOIL.

Bounce is a project designed to develop Super-Soldiers based on alien DNA and anatomy. The goal is to make "clean" soldiers which are immune to CBR/NBC warfare. The results have been catastrophic.
The first technique implemented was to surgically implant and grow a subcutaneous layer of photosynthetic chlorophyll based cellulose into a human subject. It was hoped that this would prevent absorbtion of toxins throught the skin and eliminate the need for respiration, as well as providing a protectiver layer of bullet resistant cellulose.
Unfortunately, the test subject developed a photovoltaic metabolism which resulted in neurological disruption and disfigurement leading to insanity. Several research personnel were killed via electrocution before the order to cease further development was given. The test subject currently resides at the YY-II ICE CAVE facility [location redacted]. Recently the test subject has produced a series of unusual yam-like growths and flowering buds which may signal the onset of some sort of reproductive cycle.
The next experiment attempted to boost the test subject's immune response to NBC/CBR factors by transplantation of cloned alien lymph glands and extraterrestial bone marrow. The test subject developed severe fungal infection of an unknown pathology and began to exude emissions of a yet-to-be fully identified mutagenic liquid. The test subject also began to generate an unprecedented increase in pheromone production. This unexpected byproduct led to the development of a chemical "mind control" pharmeceutical by Sub-Project CORE after the mysterious disappearance of the test subject.
Current research focuses on a system-wide approach of nanotechnological genetic therapy which promises to create individuals who can alter their appearance. These CHANGELINGS could then impersonate other individuals as needed. The stumbling block has come with set of peculiar symptoms which include severe pain when attempting to shift shape, skin and connective tissues which liquify or evaporate into mist after periods of prolonged alteration or when subjected to trauma, and uncontrolled emissions of pus, bile and lymph. No test subject lived longer than two months, a tragically short lifespan that ends in a griseous clay-like "smearing" of the entire mass of the patients cellular structure. Most test subjects complained of an insatiable biological craving for normal human organs (cannibalism).
There are also numerous other hybridized cadavers stored at the ICE CAVE who did not survive the hybridization process.

CATALYST handles the main body of ARC DREAM research, and has become more of a production house which occasionally spins off further sub-projects. Catalyst has perfected the accelerated growth of human embryos and fetuses to adulthood in a period of several weeks. The more growth factor is used to accelerate development, the greater the risk of biological failure.
A timely production schedule to keep up with the demand for human clones and other cloned materials have increased the amount of defective and thus unusable material. This has led to CATALYST requiring a much larger than normal medical waste facility.
CATALYST has developed an advanced cryogenic technology for storage of harvested limbs and organs, as well as for unusual test subjects or prisoners. This is complemented by an experimental nanotechnological stasis unit called the CHRYSALIS. CHRYSALIS is also capable of genetically altering biological specimens stored within and can serve as an all purpose tool for cloning and other biochemical manipulation.
The primary means of cloning performed by CATALYST is through WOMB growths. These are biological membraneous sacks encased in perfect crystal cylinders. The first WOMB growths were provided by the Greys and subsequent WOMB's were designed by BIOGON and constructed using the Crockpot (see nanotechnology in Part One). This technology has nothing to do with the World Organization for Medicine and Biology, which provides clones to the clandestine global psionic organization known as INVISIBLE. However, INVISIBLE does provide Majestic-12 with advanced mind control technology based on MKULTRA and other esoteric research.
CATALYST has mastered the production and development of embryonic stem cells. These all-purpose cells can be grown to develop into any organ, limb or body part/system desired. CATALYST can also transplant every organ in the human body at once, with perfect matching genetics.
The total organ transplant has lead to cases of multiple personality disorder when performed between two non-cloned test subjects, leading CATALYST researchers to believe that some sort of chemical or genetic memory is transferred via total organ transplant. Side effects from clone to non-clone transplants have resulted in loss of focus and motivation as well as an unidentified malaise in the transplantee. This has led to religious speculation that such transplantation destroys a person's soul. Of course, such ridiculous claims are not heeded by serious scientific researchers.

Out of all of ARC DREAM, CORE has the greatest potential for drastic, world altering effects. If each experiment is taken seperately, CORE simply alters microbes, animals and biochemistry. Viewed as a whole, CORE provides the advent of a new global ecology; an ecology based on genetic engineering and alien science.
Currently the implications of consciously directing this evolution have only been considered by sources outside Majestic-12. INVISIBLE is keeping tabs on CORE through intrusive telepathy, information sharing with the Gestalt, and aggressive precognition. The New World Industries subidiary Biosyndrome Systems Inc. has audaciously implemented sample ecologies computed by the artificial intelligence EVOLVER and based on Dr. Everett Stanz's Accelerated Evolution Model. These glistening and gelid neojungles and quivering flexreefs currently grow and flourish on isolated and radioactive Pacific atolls.
CORE has developed anti-DNA virii which imprint themselves upon a specific genetic pattern which they exclusively infect. This, combined with tailored carrier pathogens from MKNAOMI has created an arsenal of selective bioassassination weapons. CORE has also developed a series of alien biochemicals called SPECTRUM, which have various deleterious effects (See DG : EYES ONLY Vol. One - Machinations of the Mi-Go for further details about the SPECTRUM biochemicals).
CORE also can duplicate nerve tissue via chemical electrosynthesis. This is actually a protomatter-based process and CORE is reliant on the Greys to provide the electrosynthetic solution (re: Protomatter). The FRANKENSTEIN process is used for creating Brain Carbons and Neurofilaments.
Brain Carbons are simply a protomatter replica of the original human organ. It has an indefinite lifespan unknown to CORE who believe that it is a exact neurological copy. The new brains are subject to utter and total domination by the Mi-Go, who can render the victims of the Brain Carbon process into empty skulled automatons by remote dissolution of their new protomatter mind.
Neurofilaments are mobile threads of semi-intelligent nervous tissue. They are based in part on the biology of the Traveller species captured on the San Carlos Indian Reservation near Phoenix, Arizona. MJ-8 DANCER has been cooperating with CORE in order to properly develop countermeasures against future encounters with the Traveller species. These Neurofilaments are key to RECOIL's advanced neurology project.
The mercifully abortive animal experimentation of CORE has been abandoned in favor of further human experimentation. However, three projects are still active in this arena; the K-10 Steppenwolf, the Marine Mammal Program, and CHIMERA.
The K-10 Steppenwolf is an augmented canine species genetically engineered and equipped with a human-type brain, diamond matrix teeth, bulletproof arachnofibrous skin, extra-dimensional myomer enhanced musculature, and vastly accurate, extremely sensitive sensory organs. K-10's have a very short lifespan and frequent cancerous tumor growth due to their drastically accelerated metabolism. They can run faster than a Cheetah, are stronger than a Grizzly bear, and are the size of a large housecat. K-10's are trained by the artifical intelligence SIRIUS who uses designed RNA skill injections to neurochemically inoculate desired behavior patterns.
The Marine Mammal Program alters bottle nosed dolphins to seek enemy submarines and ships, attack enemy divers and seek alien intelligences beneath the sea. Communication with the dolphins has revealed an elaborate mythos concerning a hostile underwater civilization of humanoid "Deep Ones" that dolphin storytellers indicate can interbreed with both humans and dolphins.
Augmented Dolphin requests to "go to war" with this mythical civilization have been ignored by Majestic analysts who dismiss such fanciful tales as primitive Dolphin superstition. ICE CAVE personnel have been instructed by MJ-1 Justin Kroft not to reveal the existence of the Deep Ones at the YY-II facility to Marine Mammal Personnel for unspecified reasons.
Augmented Dolphins have been altered to dive deeper and longer, increase their sonar's range and swim much faster with greater snout and overall body strength for lethal "kamikaze torpedo" attacks. Cybernetic CLARION and GABRIEL sonic weaponry is currently being implanted into AUGDOL's.
CHIMERA is a CORE program to create animal-human hybrids. So far the only experiment was the surgical implantation of a human brain carbon into a Chimpanzee. Project-X was shut down after a brief period of inconclusive testing. CHIMERA plans to use animal chromosomes to engineer an alternative to RECOIL and BOUNCE soldiers. Some CHIMERA researchers are pushing to steer CHIMERA toward the uplift of semi-sentient beings to fully human intelligence. This would create various "slave-races" which could be used as expendables in a interstellar war.
CORE's major contribution to ARC DREAM and Majestic is in the arena of Biological Warfare. Some of the bioweapons include; a Grain Blight to foment famine in hostile nations, a PROTEUS virus which genetically alters hostiles into more passive behavior, and a nanotechnological virus which elicits spontaneous combustion in people and machinery.
Finally, CORE has produced Combat Drugs and other field pharmeceuticals for RECOIL and NRO DELTA agents. Research into Psychotronic Biochemicals has been subtly halted by a jealous INVISIBLE which has used invasive telepathy to subliminally implant subconscious failure into the minds of researchers involved in such attempts.
Two of the Combat Drugs developed are TSA-343 or "Slo-Mo", which has been extensively tested on the Mediterranian Island-State of Al Amarja. Slo-Mo alters one's time sense so that everything seems to proceed in a radically slower time-frame. Slo-Mo is also known as TEMPO. Another drug developed is the green and bioluminescent fluid called JUMP. JUMP, which has shown the amazing property of rejuvinating nearly dead individuals into frenzied attackers who feel no pain, has proven to be an effective "dead-man" contingency. Unfortunately, the users of JUMP invariably experience extreme brain damage and cannot be thereafter useful to Majestic.

RECOIL has been producing physiologically altered NRO DELTA and MJ-5 BLUE FLY personnel since 1993. The test subjects have been given enhanced strength through the use of advanced steroids and specially designed adrenaline-producing organs. The musculature must be nanotechnologically enhanced in order to prevent injury from the increased biochemical strength. One RECOIL test subject has even been given a musculature which has been wholly replaced by extra-dimensional myomers. The skeletal structure has also been regrown and gradually converted into a diamond matrix by nanotechnology in order to bear the great weights and stresses imposed by enhanced strength. All this causes great agony in RECOIL subjects which is partially cured by neurosurgery and painkillers.
Superconducting Neurofilaments have been infiltrated into the Central Nervous Systems of RECOIL test subjects. This has resulted in greatly increased reaction speeds and hand-eye coordination. It also may cause epilepsy, narcolepsy, and all manner of neurochemical psychosis, delusion, hallucination and bizarre ideation. Again, these side-effects are treated with medication.
Night Vision has been granted to RECOIL test subjects. This is accomplished by replacing RECOIL test subject's corneas with multi-dimensional crystal-matrix optical lenses and growing high density rod/cone polymorphic nervous tissue in the retinas. This has produced hallucinations and migraine headaches similar to those experienced by ZEUS targeting personnel. More medication is necessary to curtail these side-effects.
Neurofilaments have replaced nose-hair in some RECOIL test subjects, and this has greatly enhanced the sense of smell. Unfortunately, the RECOIL subjects thus augmented have complained of an inability to stand close proximity of others, and a greatly diminished appetite due to the intensity of odors they now experience. Nevertheless, the tracking potential of such augmentation is judged to be well worth the reduced quality of life.
Additional organs and improved organs from CATALYST have been implanted in RECOIL personnel. This has caused immune response difficulties due to the many conflicting genetic materials used in the RECOIL test subjects. Once more, RECOIL test subjects must take additional medication to prevent immune rejection of their augmentation.
An additional "endurance" heart, total filtration kidneys, and super-oxygenated water-breathing lungs have all been used on RECOIL test subjects to great success. An advanced "blood-doping" process to provide the extra nutrients that these improved organs require was replaced recently (as was the subject's blood) by a self-replicating nanotechnological "biosoup" of complex Blood Agents designed by the artificial intelligence BIOGON.
The RECOIL augmentation with the least side-effects is the implementation of Improved Protective Structures. Diamond shell eyeballs, a perfect crystal skeletal structure, and an arachnofibrous weave into the skin maintain a human appearance while rendering near total protection from small arms. IPS has been the subject of much unauthorized testing by imaginative and suicidal RECOIL test subjects.
Overall, RECOIL has astounding capabilities and great potential while exacting a terrible cost to sanity and humanity. Drug addiction, biological failure and imminent psychological collapse make RECOIL personnel unreliable without control agents to monitor and supervise their behavior. Escaping RECOIL subjects are dealt with by a time release virus which will cause them intense debilitating pain until they return to Majestic for treatment. If they do not return in time, the virus mutates into a highly acidic bacteria which erodes the RECOIL subject to a carbonized blackened mass within minutes.
ADDENDUM: In recent months, the K-10 Steppenwolf program has been accelerated and spun off into Sub-Project LAELAPS. LAELAPS has begun mass production of the Steppenwolf K-10 prototype.
