do you make any exams to test if you have an implant try to see i the iternet the interview of Barrie Trower, professor in physics and expert in secret warfare by means of microwaves,...governements are paying to studie people...inducing voices ..using RFIDS..stimoceivers dr. jose delgado "We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. ... The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electronically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain."
