Pretty cool explanations that might just help you imagine some difficult concepts, highly recommend viewing.

That whole TEDtalk video segment was fatally flawed, and I'd just like to know why TED doesn't' understand how conceptually crippled it is. I thought TED was supposed to be a global brain trust of some kind.
