One of many analyses of alien implants done in North America was done on January 6, 1995 in the city of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, beginning at 2.30 pm and ending at 4pm. The results do not prove that there was anything unearthly per se, but there are certain characteristics of the elements found that could imply a possible purpose for the implantation. The 1mm diameter implant is dark in color and is made primarily of aluminium, titanium and silicon. Other traces were found of iron, potassium, calcium, sulphur, chlorine, and sodium.
The analysis was done using a Scanning Electron Microscope, with fluorescent analyser, made by International Scientific Instruments. Examination was done of the entire item and of a central spot in it.
Graphs of the elements found were produced on Tracor-Northern spectral print-outs with X - Y coordinates. An additional record of the analysis was made by photographing the magnified implant with a Polaroid camera.
The laboratory which performed the work is located in Mississauga, Ontario, adjacent and to the west of Toronto. Your editor took the implant to the lab by automobile. It had been placed in a plastic see-through container immediately after removal from the abductee in 1989. Surgery was done on (the late) Betty Stewart Dagenais at York County Hospital in Newmarket, Ontario that year. Analysis of the tissue surrounding it was performed at the University of Toronto immediately after the surgery. The implant was in the back of her left ear.
CUFORN has already published the results of that preliminary and cursory examination. (See also FSR 39/2, page 26).
The current lab work was done by CUFORN member-scientist George Hathaway, B.Sc., P.Eng. CUFORN thanks him for his diligence, persistence and adherence to scientific methodology. We shall always be grateful for his work and for the following comment he made about the implant’s elements. "Titanium could be used in a transmitter or receiver, as could aluminium. Titanium might have migrated from one part of the person’s body to the back of the ear over a period of time, but I doubt it did so in this case. It is likely to have been foreign to the person’s body in the combination found."
The three main elements found were aluminium, silicon and titanium. They exhibit several common aspects. These are, in the shape; aluminium has a face-centred cubic crystalline structure: titanium, above 880 degrees Centigrade changes to a cubic crystalline structure; silicon has an allotropic form like dark crystalline diamond.
Aluminium is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity; titanium in the form of barium titanate is piezoelectric and can be used as a transducer for the interconversion of sound and electricity; silicon is used in transistors and other semi-conductors. This is especially relevant because the abductee reported hearing what she called "signals", like Morse code, for years after her third abduction on July 12, 1961 in Don Mills, Ontario (part of Metro Toronto), Ontario, Canada. From 1961 until a few years before the implant was removed surgically, these “signals” gradually bothered her less and less as their strength receded. She also said that she heard words at times, but could not understand the language. CUFORN did not find out about her case until 1985 and had to wait until the regressive hypnosis was done by Dr. David Gotlib. Delays meant that we had to wait unti 1989 to get the implant removed. A series of articles was published meanwhile about her case based on the ongoing hypnosis session tapes.
All three elements resist corrosion. Silicon can be combined with sulphur to form a compound; it can also be used to form alloys such as those with aluminium.
Aluminium and titanium are ductile and are used in aircraft and spacecraft. Sulphur is also crystalline when solid. Titanium and sulphur are found in meteorites.
Summing up, the various similarities seem to me to mean that the Dagenais implant was either a transmitter or a receiver, possibly both. However, the scientific method requires that one gather evidence and use it to conduct an experiment, and then form a conclusion or theory based on it. Since we know that three of the main elements found in it by lab analysis can be and are used to make the aforementioned devices, we can then extrapolate from that knowledge, and form the obvious conclusion.
According to Budd Hopkins who has seen the results of the analysis of about ten purported implants, each device is composed of entirely different elements.
This is baffling, since one would assume that the ‘grays’ who reportedly have inserted these implants in humans, would use devices made of the same elements. There may be other reasons for the use of varying elements in implants. We do not know what they may be. And that is all we can say at this point.
This Report contained graphs with complete details of the analysis of the Dagenais implant and black and white reproductions of four original coloured Polaroid photos of the implant. Owing to lack of space we omit the graphs. Likewise the black and white Polaroid prints, which would not reproduce with any success whatsoever.
On March 8, 1995, Budd Hopkins gave a lecture in Toronto on "The Abduction Experience," in the course of which he mentioned that ten implants have already been analyzed in laboratories, and that no two of them were identical in the elements contained in them. On March 13, Mr. Fenwick questioned Mr. Antonio Fernandez of Toronto (an expert quality control technician with the Panasonic Division of Matsushita Electric, Canada) as to what a device mainly consisting of aluminium, silicon and titanium might be used for, but was careful not to mention "UFOs or implants". Mr. Fernandez’s reply was that such a device "would be a transducer and can be used to transmit signals". From this it seems clear that the implant is indeed a transmitter!.
Incidentally, one wonders why there has been, so far as we know, no attempt at the structural analysis of any of these putative implants. Mere chemical analysis of one of our own microchips would reveal nothing whatsoever about its function! -G.C.
