Our fourth shoot brought us to Philadelphia to interview the granddaddy of renegade biology, Dr. Gilbert N. Ling. We lucked out with an AirBnb in a wing of a historic mansion in the beautiful Mt. Airy neighborhood. We also had the pleasure of sharing the space with a family of friendly cockroaches.
We spent two full-days filming with Dr. Ling, capturing over 10 hours of interview footage. At the age of 95 his mind is razor sharp, energy levels high (we had to run to keep up with him), and completely independent, living in a rambling 3-story house by himself.
Our interview focused on his radically different model of the living cell, one that solves the most glaring issues of the standard model. We also touched upon his incredible personal story of how he came to live in the USA, his invention of the industry-changing Gerard-Ling micro-electrodes (of which his name is now erased), and how we have his theories to thank for MRI technology. We also learned a little too much about his own personal experimentation to cure his constipation. TMI Gilbert!
