Tingling, current or electricity seemed the perfect replacement for the brutality of the scalpel and barbarism of any kind (including blunt trauma), introduced by Rudolph Hess to Cats and the vivisection of monkeys to determine how they mapped the world with their visual cortex may not seem related, but both suffered the consequences of exposure to electrical current internally.
Tesla did similar things to himself; though less intrusive than probes, he believed he could use the electro-magnetic field to heal people, but it wasn't surprising to find animal rights activists protesting on Telegraph Avenue as a result of the Research taking place there when I arrived.

They were really silencing my testimony because it was too dangerous for my folks to live with.
