The Second Cognitive Revolution


J.L. Mee is a leading thinker in the emerging field of human genetic cognitive enhancement.  His work helps progressive business and socail leaders understand the macroeconomic and technology trends which are shaping this nascent trillion dollar industry.


Mr. Mee’s ability to forecast the trajectory of new technologies is a natural outgrowth of his management experience.  While overseeing long range product planning and development for a Fortune 500 global technology company, J.L. Mee became a seasoned observer and forecaster of technology trends. His rare, high-level industry perspective provides penetrating insights into the coming genetic engineering revolution.


The Genetic Age dawning today will experience a power growth curve similar to the one the Information Age has enjoyed over the last six decades.  Computers changed the world, and forward-thinking families who took early positions in the budding computer industry were lifted into eminence.


Genetic engineering is the new frontier.  New technologies are being developed to apply the power of genetic engineering to improving human cognition.  Mr. Mee’s research institute has prepared a Cognitive Economics market intelligence report to help visionary leaders understand how to leverage these new technologies to enrich humanity's cognitive capital around the world.  Times like this of great transition are often rife with opportunity. Genetic engineering will eventually become one of the world’s largest industries. 

An entirely new field is emerging to leverage the power of CRISPR to transform human cognitive ability.  ​Genetic cognitive enhancement meets crucial needs in our society. To thrive in this century of global competition, American entrepreneurs require more innovation, more creative solutions, and more exceptional thinking.  Generation Z in particular needs a mental edge and expanded human value skills such as imagination and creativity to stay ahead of competition for jobs from robotics, A.I. and China.  Genetic upgrades can deliver the cognitive resources for meeting these needs.


Success in today’s world requires bold, decisive action based on keen insights into revolutionary trends.  Forward-thinking leaders can be on the winning side of change by becoming early adopters and innovators who turn potential into opportunity.

"The world today is shifting into a knowledge economy where cognitive capital is the prime currency.


In the 21st Century, the ability to marshal this precious resource for creative problem solving will determine the economic mobility of individuals and the wealth of nations."


– J.L. Mee 


Genetic "smart pill" concept


J.L. Mee holds multiple patents pending on genetic engineering methods for enhancing human cognition.  These discoveries form the enabling technology for expanding human cognitive capital to meet the challenges of the 21st Century; boosting attention, focus, creativity, mental acuity and emotional intelligence.


With co-inventor Dr. Dean Radin, Mr. Mee has also developed a revolutionary new CRISPR systems architecture for precisely delivering genome edits to any localized brain region.  This discovery, called CRISPR-T, can be applied to alleviate neurological conditions by targeting specific brain areas.

● Cognitive enhancement:  CRISPR-T can also be used for general-purpose cognitive enhancement in healthy adults to raise conscious awareness, decrease inattention, reduce mind-wandering, lower craving, sharpen mental focus, increase concentration, enhance mindfulness, increase intuition and foster emotional balance.

● Platform technology:  The Mee-Radin patent for CRISPR-T is a foundational science breakthrough comparable to the Boyer-Cohen patent for recombinant DNA (which spawned today’s $400B biotech industry).  Due to its breadth of application, CRISPR-T technology can form the bedrock for a cognitive treatment and enhancement ecosystem which can have far-reaching effects on human mental health, cognitive capacity and overall well-being.  

● Neurological disorders: CRISPR-T enables dozens of clinical applications for addressing a wide spectrum of neurological conditions without the side effects of pharmaceuticals.  Treatable conditions include attention deficit disorder (ADD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, insomnia, psychosomatic issues, memory concerns, Alzheimer's disease symptoms, tinnitus, and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Most of these disorders involve imbalances in various brain regions, and their behavioral and cognitive effects can be mitigated by normalizing the unbalanced areas with CRISPR-T.   Learn more.


The technology these inventions introduce is grounded in Mr. Mee's deep and pragmatic understanding of engineering.  John L. Mee is a senior research and development executive with extensive experience transforming new technologies into commercially successful products.  One of the architects of the Information Age, Mr. Mee worked at the highest echelons in the computer industry, directing R&D programs involving thousands of engineers which produced new computer systems hardware designs.  He had management responsibility for evolving large computer architecture into the massive, microprocessor-driven parallelism at the heart of today’s machines.

Mr. Mee rose to prominence in the corridors of power of a Fortune 500 global technology company with a million square feet of manufacturing space and 25,000 people.  He had P&L management responsibility for major computer systems R&D programs for Honeywell, where he secured $400 million in investment funding and managed 20 advanced R&D programs. These programs resulted in 13 U.S. patents and $5 billion worth of large systems computer products, including central processors, I/O channels, controllers and data storage devices; altogether improving computer price / performance by 600%.

Honeywell DPS 8000 Information System

He is the youngest father of a mainframe, having managed the engineering development of a leading-edge, high-tech large computer system. The machine was manufactured by Honeywell Information Systems, which had the second largest installed base of computers in the world. 



Change often comes from mavericks who think outside the box and work outside the system.  The Wright Brothers were bicycle builders.  William Boeing was a lumber company executive.  Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg were college dropouts.  Henry Ford did not complete high school.  The greatest architect of the early Renaissance, Filippo Brunelleschi, was a jeweler.  Einstein was a patent clerk.  The list goes on.  All of these men changed history with dynamic innovations which came from outside the established channels of thought.


Although visionary leadership will be required to achieve the full promise of genetic cognitive engineering, the potential benefits are enormous.  It will be up to progressive leaders to maximize the potential of this transformative technology at every level of society.


The opportunity to lift humanity into greater awareness and cognitive ability represents a defining moment in the progress of human civilization.  Such a monumental advance can empower a new generation of leaders to reach up and bend the arc of history in the direction of more freedom, greater wisdom, and more compassion.
