[As reported previously in the Flash ("MAN WHO HAD IMPLANT REMOVED TELLS HIS OWN STORY," vol. 2, no. 1, March 15, 1996), Pat Parrinello underwent surgery to remove a possible "implant" from his hand on August 19, 1995. As this article goes to press, Parrinello is still waiting for final lab reports on the nature of the object. Meanwhile, having had a year to assess the results of the surgery from his own unique perspective, Parrinello now says it may not have been such a good idea. Here, he explains his current views. The questions were inserted after the fact by the editor to fit Parrinello's remarks, which were excerpted from various correspondence. ISCNI*Flash thanks Pat Parrinello for permission to publish this story, dated August 14, 1996.]
Q: As interest in the possibility of "implant removal" has grown over the past year, a number of abductees and researchers have raised important questions concerning "ownership" of surgically removed objects [see ISCNI*Flash vol. 2, no. 10 of August 1, 1996]. What is your view on this issue? Do you retain "ownership" of the object taken from your hand?
Pat: My answer is simply to judge one's own motives. Mine are to find meaning or truth as to what is going on. So, naturally I conceded "ownership" to those whose interest matched my motives. I have been told that the reports on findings will be available in about a month. I am keen to know the metallurgical data as I feel that this will give me some clues as to why I was "selected" for an implant in the first place. Having it taken out was my choice. Further, having the thing tested was another choice that I could in no way have made without the generosities of those people involved. So, do I "own" the implant? NO! In my opinion it belongs to the whole of humanity if it turns out to have value in furthering our knowledge of what is going on.
Q: Are you saying that you are convinced that what was removed was indeed an "implant"?
Pat: I was convinced before anyone knew anything but me.
Q: You've had a year to assess the results of the surgery in terms of your own physical and psychological response. On that basis, what advice would you give to others who might wish to undergo such surgery?
Pat: For anyone considering having an "implant" removed, I offer this advice. First, let's assume it is a genuine alien implant. What the heck is it for? Why was it placed? Those questions plagued me and led me to make an offer to any researcher interested in it to take it and find out what it is. One did, Derrel Sims. It was through Dale Musser via Fidonet UFO that these communications took place a couple of years ago and ultimately led to that day in Los Angeles, August 19, 1995, when the implant was removed. It was then, on that day, that I found out something really strange. The watchers are watching the watcher watchers! In other words, the "aliens" are keenly aware that they have been "discovered" and have now taken a formidable interest in those who are aware of and watching them. They wanted those at the clinic to know it too. I will detail this at a later time. Back to the advice.
Don't do it. At least think long and hard and define your motives for doing it. If you can justify your reasons for having an "alien" implant removed, then go ahead. But consider this. If it is indeed a "genuine article," you just may be in for a few surprises and changes in your personal makeup that you had not counted on.
I lost my psychic intuition to a great degree. I notice that it is slowly returning but seems to work differently. Maybe that's good, I just don't know. Maybe "they" felt sorry for me and fixed it. I can tell you this, if you have any psychic abilities, you are going to feel naked in the world the day you lose them!
Q: Are you saying that you believe other people would be likely to experience similar negative side effects if they undergo this kind of surgery?
Pat: No. But consider this. If any such "implant" is in a nerve path, and that nerve path presents no known impulses -- i.e. pain or [other sensations] -- then I'd hold such a placement to be highly suspect as a possible "psychic link" and advise against removal based on my experience. That [object] was "linked in" to my autonomic nerve system and as such nothing untoward was felt by me, only its physical aspect [i.e. presence in his hand].
Q: In the absence of lab reports, how can you be sure that the object was connected to your nervous system?
Pat: Well, my experience is that it most definitely was. When [the surgeon] connected with the object, my body felt like the Christmas tree at the Whitehouse. Then it was gone. If your whole body were your elbow and someone hit your funny bone, you'd understand.
Q: According to some of the researchers associated with these surgeries, a large number of people are now requesting implant removal surgery. How do you feel about this?
Pat: I think it wise for me to admonish in the negative on implant removal. Let the "chips" fall where they may. I foresee implant removal relegated to the same class as cosmetic surgery in the near future if this "go for it" trend of removal continues... There are plenty of doctors around who will capitalize on the "implant removal trend," and that alone is enough for me to tell you to watch out!
