Charlie was a fortunate and an unfortuate man to have had this operation done to him. It was a totally new experience for him. This something that no one would ever experience in a million years. This operation was done without knowledge of what would happen to Charlie as he progressed in the experiment. As Charlie progressed he became more aware of his surroundings and his feelings.

Unable to cope with the emotions he had come to with his intelliegence he began to relize that with intellect comes understanding. Without this intelliegence is useless.

Charlie was a man of substance. He had what it took to become something more than everyone expected of him. In fact everyone expected nothing less than worse for Charlie until they saw that his intellect was none other than superb.

There should be nothing to regret from his expierence because he did the best that he could and that was better than was expected.
