I recently read [Ms. Wilson's] article in the ISCNI*Flash concerning alleged alien implants. I am an emergency room physician in Southern California and a Working Group Coordinator for the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence [CSETI]. I thought it might be helpful to have additional input from the medical community on this question and so I asked the pathologist at our hospital how his department deals with foreign bodies removed at time of surgery.
His answer was as follows and from our discussion it appeared as if there was a hierarchy of who would be allowed possession. The highest priority applies to legal questions. If it is a police matter and say a bullet has been removed and needs to be identified then a police officer is usually present at the then the time of surgery. The officer then immediately takes possession of the object so as not to disrupt the chain of evidence. Concerns about admissibility in court might make the evidence less than useful in a criminal matter if strict adherence to established procedure is not maintained.
The next priority of possession pertains to tissue identification. If a pathology specimen is needed for a diagnosis, the hospital path lab has priority in terms of being able to analyze the specimen in order to make a correct diagnosis. Once the needs of the pathologist have been taken care of, a patient may receive a bullet or a gallbladder or whatever is removed. Arrangements usually are made in advance and the patient or family simply receives the object in a bottle after surgery.
As a physician I have no doubt that implants are a reality. In my practice I have encountered one such case. As a CSETI researcher however I would like to counsel [Ms. Wilson and other interested persons] that the existence of mind control and implant technology in human hands is also a reality. I refer you to the Martin Cannon ["The Controllers"] monograph on the hypothesis that some alleged alien abductions have a more terrestrial origin. Recent articles in the UFO press also have described unclassified information concerning implant technology developed by Western electronics corporations.
In dealing with such an important subject as Extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth, all researchers have a tremendous responsibility to behave in a responsible manner. Wild accusations directed against Extraterrestrials who we truly know very little about (with any high degree of certainty) could be dangerous for our culture. It might set the stage for conflict between their civilizations and ours where there might not need to be conflict.
