I was alone in my office, but surrounded by the majesty of thought that arises from the tranquility of the environment and surrounded by an immense desire to express so many ideas that surrounded my conscience and it is then that I decided to concretize them in these notes.
These notes have a historical function in psychiatric medicine and are dedicated to my psychiatric colleagues, My wife Fanny, my son Jose, the lawyer Miguel Martínez Dávalos, Mr. Dn Marcelo Varas Guerrero and the relatives of the mentally ill.
Today April 10 2018 a few months after having completed 50 years of graduation, I have prepared to write these notes because they have spent 11 long years of hard medical work and in the course of them I have been happy and pleased to have fulfilled my duty and my desire to solve a couple of unfortunate questions that have throbbed inside me and in the hearts of all psychiatric colleagues.
The first is my most painful question and was the stimulus that has accompanied me throughout my research. It is the following. Because after a century of psychiatric research, schizophrenia should continue accompanying a human being to the grave?
The second is :
It is or not an immense misfortune to live without reason and to die without repentance, without an act of contrition and not be able to say goodbye with sanity to humans and the LORD with peace of mind?
It has been eleven years since having solved these questions which makes me share my happiness with my family and friends, as well as with the relatives of the sick and patients.
Eleven years ago, after deep physiological reflection I was able to project conclusions and make decisions before discovering that I was on the path that other researchers had drawn and a wonderful abstraction accompanied me to take a few steps further, which allowed me to discover the solution to schizophrenia a new surgery in which they are practiced with two small cuts one on top of each kidney.
I would like to invite those greats who preceded me, Freeman, Altschule, Dide Girard, Shattock, Hosking, Vaisanen to the happy contemplation of that wonderful show in which alienation and delirium give way to sanity and good sense after three hours of surgery of a schizophrenic patient.
This comes to me as an exceptional and unique show that is to observe the fading of the symptoms within three hours of the patient’s operation, as well as the congratulations of the family members wrapped in a chest of sincere gratitude.
I personally expressed to a few and distinguished members of the society of psychiatry, my gratitude for having honored this scientific event and received from them an endorsement of my research, although the vast majority has honored me with immense silence. In the meantime, I say, but it is not like the silence of peace, but rather like a laconic and cautious silence, but one that seems to shout its own recognition in great voices.
As a general form I want to express something that I always preach.
All men are selfish and we have a lot of materialism, but the important thing is that selfishness does not turn into injustice and especially into that injustice next to abuse or vileness.
For me it is obligatory to emphasize the fact that all my terms come from my human feeling and from the need that as a psychiatrist I have to express the happiness that I feel at this moment as the most important of my life and that is based on the cornerstone of my existence as a professional and psychiatrist
Before losing inspiration and avoiding entering into issues as deep as the personalities of each one, I ask the LORD for a blessing, as well as for all my relatives, colleagues and friends who have penetrated these lines out of my cell interstices.
