Eye on the Pyramid

Known as the “All-Seeing Eye of God”, this is one of the symbols commonly associated with the Committee of 300 by conspiracy theorists

The Committee of 300 (300人委員会, 300-nin iinkai), also known as The Illuminati, The Olympians, Hidden Hand, and various other names, is a secret society with 300 members in it worldwide, which for over a century has plotted world domination, with the goal of a one-world government, also known as the Human Cultivation Project or the New World Order, and is the central antagonist of the Science Adventure Series.

It is partly based on the real life conspiracy theory by John Coleman about a group called the Committee of 300, which he also calls The Olympians, as well as Hidden Hand, a term that acts as a key password in Robotics;Notes. It is also partly based on the real life conspiracy theory about The Illuminati and the New World Order.

According to John Coleman’s 1991 book Conspirators’ Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300, available as a free PDF eBook on the CIA website as part of a collection of books found at Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan, the committee seeks to cull the global human population into a smaller world united under one government. In Robotics;Notes the Committee of 300 is purported to have a similar plan, called the “Human Cultivation Project”, in which the Committee would cull the worldwide human population down to 1 billion people and rule over them in what is popularly called the New World Order.

This is also the Committee’s goal in Steins;Gate, in which they make use of the organization SERN to monopolize time travel, cull the worldwide population down to 1 billion people, and achieve complete domination by the year 2036, turning the world into what John Titor, a time traveler from the year 2036 who managed to escape back in time to try to change things, calls “a dystopia”.

The Committee has countless front organizations all over the world, and is said to secretly control the world from the shadows. Their power spreads not only to the politics of all major world powers, but also religion, the economy, science, and military and intelligence agencies, among other things.

The Committee in Robotics;Notes

In Robotics;Notes, Committee of 300 member Kō Kimijima, a brilliant scientist, is the mastermind behind his genocidal plans, Project Mars and Project Atom, brainwashing numerous other people as well as using AIs to do his dirty work, including an AI version of himself as well as the dual program Geji-nee and Airi.

As an AI, Kō Kimijima turns Misaki Senomiya into his pawn, despite her killing his original human form, by harassing her about how she killed him until she submits to his will. He also brainwashes the the entire Kidou Battler Gunvarrel Anime Production Team, including its director Minami Furugoori, the mother of Kona Furugoori (a.k.a. Frau Kojiro). Maguyan and the real Airi Yukifune are also brainwashed by him.

Kō Kimijima also receives assistance from numerous front organizations of the Committee of 300, such as N.O.Z.O.M.I. who produce Noah IV, SERN who produce black hole bombs, Exoskeleton Co. who give him control of their Power Suits, and the Kidou Battler Gunvarrel Anime Production Team who broadcast propaganda for him.

This gives both of his genocidal plans, Project Mars and Project Atom, plenty of people working to help bring them to fruition. Project Mars involves a planned robot uprising, involving companies like Exoskeleton Co. and Roboratory Industry Inc. that produce robotics. Project Atom involves a plan to detonate black hole bombs made by SERN in Earth’s magnetosphere to kill most of the world’s population. Together, those 2 projects would help to bring about the Human Cultivation Project, reducing the global population to around a billion and helping the Committee of 300 to create a New World Order tyrannical one-world government that would rule the surviving members of humanity in a dystopia.

Kō Kimijima also tricks Kaito Yashio using an AI he developed, Airi (which was based on a real girl), into collecting a number of reports he wrote, called the Kimijima Reports, in which Kō Kimijima spreads disinformation and propaganda. The Kimijima Reports contain a mix of true and false information about the Committee of 300 and its plans, front organizations, etc., in order to throw people off the trail from the truth, and in them, Kō Kimijima presents himself as a brave whistleblower against the evil plans of he Committee of 300, rather than the mastermind behind their current plans. Kaito is eventually tricked into distributing all of the Kimijima Reports worldwide where they have the effect Kō Kimijima intended, the disinformation causing a panic and throwing people off the trail of his actual plans.

He and his plans are ultimately defeated by Kaito Yashio, Akiho Senomiya, Nae Tennouji, and their friends from the Robotics Club, with some help from Itaru Hashida (who creates a computer virus to destroy Kō Kimijima) and Neidhardt Takumi Nishijou (who comes up with countermeasures against Noah IV). They also get help from the CEO of Exoskeleton Co., Toshiyuki Sawada, who is rebelling against the Committee of 300 and their evil plans, despite previously allowing his company to be a front organization for the Committee until just the right time, when Sawada could find allies to fight the Committee alongside him. Kaito and Akiho are even able to get Geji-nee, Airi Yukifune, and Misaki Senomiya to snap out of their brainwashing (or in the case of Geji-nee, her programming), and they all turn against Kō Kimijima, who is finally erased by Itaru Hashida’s computer virus.

Known projects of the Committee of 300

As mentioned above, the “Human Cultivation Project”, also known as the “New World Order”, is the main goal of the Committee of 300, by which it plans to reduce the world’s population to one billion and unite it under a totalitarian one world government. To this end, the Committee has to this end invested heavily in propaganda and a number of other projects.

Major projects named so far in the Science Adventure Series are Project Noah (ChäoS;HEAd), SERN’s Z-Program (Steins;Gate), Project Mars (Robotics;Notes), and Project Atom (Robotics;Notes).

It is not always clear whether certain groups and characters are true members of the Committee of 300, are simply hired help, or are coerced or otherwise forced to do the Committee’s bidding. Therefore, this is a list of any and all characters that have ever had a helping hand in the evil deeds of the Committee regardless of the character’s own circumstances.
