Accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein hoped to seed the human race with his DNA by impregnating women at his vast New Mexico ranch, according to The New York Times.

Citing interviews with more than a dozen of his acquaintances, and public documents, the Times reported Epstein, a wealthy financier, confided the bizarre vision to scientists and others.

But his interest really reflected a fascination with transhumanism, the science of improving the human population through technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence, the Times reported.

Critics call transhumanism a modern-day version of eugenics, the discredited field of improving the human race through controlled breeding, the Times noted.

One adherent of transhumanism told the Times he and Epstein discussed his interest in cryogenics, an unproven science in which people's bodies are frozen to be brought back to life in the future.

Epstein told the person he wanted his head and penis to be frozen, the Times reported.

Alan Dershowitz, a professor emeritus of law at Harvard, told the Times he recalled at a lunch Epstein hosted in Cambridge, Massachusetts, he steered the conversation toward the question of how humans could be improved genetically.

Dershowitz told the Times he was appalled, given the Nazis' use of eugenics to justify their genocidal effort to purify the Aryan race.

"Everyone speculated about whether these scientists were more interested in his views or more interested in his money," Dershowitz told the Times.

Dershowitz was one of  Epstein's defense lawyers in the 2008 Florida case in which he was ultimately charged with soliciting a minor for prostitution.
