Fuller led an interesting life. As a reporter he became known for his powerful and clear prose that delivered the message without ornaments. His topics too, from lost nuclear weapons to price-fixing in the electrical industry to UFOs, cover quite a range.
But no matter what the topic, his voice is loud and clear. To me the epitome of his work is The Airmen who Would Not Die, because the evidence for that case of communication with the dead is incontrovertible.
The records still held at John G. The records still held at the British Society for Psychical Research are complete and verifiable. His reporting of the incident is a perfect case example of the professional journalist in action. When Fuller turned to the case of Arigo, the uneducated man who claimed to perform surgery under the tutelage of a Dr Fritz a quite dead entity , he packed a pound of salt before embarking on the trip to the Brazilian jungle.
He used the grains of salt to good effect through the book, and with the 16mm film shot in the remote village and brought back as evidence, he wrote down the story. And it is a remarkable story. Arigo performed surgery with no anaesthesia, no painkillers, no sterilized equipment. Sometimes a penknife passed over a lighter would do. And yet, on film, in front of witnesses, he extracts tumors and cures various other ailments in a trance, without so much as a second glance at the patient after he pronounces him cured.
Patients report full recovery and no infections after the operation. Fuller ponders long and hard whether this is true. I am not sure whether the Philippine pen knife surgeons were active at this time, but they were incontrovertibly proven fakes. No such luck with Arigo - his work stands as an example of a mystery, performed on film, in daylight, and reported on by Fuller. He comes to the conclusion that something not explainable by modern man takes place when Arigo goes to work on a man with a tumor in the throat and in five seconds flat has the bulging cancer growth in a dirty enamel dish.
I will of course leave it up to you to decide what you think of this. His successes are apparantly confirmed by Western Science.
Arigo: Surgeon of the Rusty Knife
His family was very poor and he could only study up to the third grade of school. At the age of 14 he began working at a mine where he worked for 6 years. According to his autobiography , around he began to suffer from strong headaches , insomnia , trances , and hallucinations. One day he felt that the voice that had been pursuing him took over his body, and he had a vision of a bald man, dressed in a white apron and supervising a team of doctors and nurses in an enormous operating room. This entity identified itself as "Dr. His reputation soared and spread throughout Brazil after it was alleged that he had removed a cancerous tumor from the lung of a well-known Brazilian senator. Over the next twenty years, thousands of people who mistrusted traditional medicine , or had not found help in it, came to Congonhas in search of a cure.
The procedure is often undertaken with bare hands or extremely basic medical instruments and leaves little if any trace of the skin having been broken. Most of the medical profession today considers psychic surgery a complete fraud, an irresponsible practice giving false hope to those suffering from fatal diseases. One of the first and most famous of these Brazilian psychic surgeons was an ex-miner known as Arigo. Jose Pedro de Freitas he took the name Arigo when he became famous as a healer in was born in October , on a farm 6km outside the mining town of Congonhas do Campo, east-central Minas Gerais, in the Brazilian Highlands.
