Episode 6: Adam Trombly recalls stories of Dr. John C. Lilly

Adam Trombly recalls his adventures with his good friend, Dr. John C. Lilly – the inventor of flotation therapy. Adam is an internationally acknowledged expert in the fields of Physics, Atmospheric Dynamics, Geophysics, Rotating and Resonating Electromagnetic Systems, and Environmental Global Modeling.

Taking the advice of his friend and mentor, R. Buckminster Fuller, Adam has maintained a “synergistic, global view” within a multidisciplinary scientific background. From this perspective, Adam offers unique insights into the changes humankind has effected on our environment, and the adjustments our future requires of us now.
