What he is talking about sounds interesting to me, and I would like to know more. But I need to know the name first.

I don't have acces to Youtube on this PC. But he basically is talking about how vibration gives form to objects. And how the form changes if the frequency changes. – Simon Verbeke Dec 5 '11 at 8:04
He's talking about a lay-person mangled version of string theory, as Briane Greene describes it. It would not be recognizable to physicists as stated, but it would be recognizable to viewers of "The Elegant Universe" (bad popular show). – Ron Maimon Dec 5 '11 at 18:28
Alright, thank you. You can add it as an answer so I can accept it. – Simon Verbeke Dec 5 '11 at 18:48

String theory, a-la Briane Greene's "The Elegant Universe" (which bears very little resemblence to actual string theory).
