Oh, I always watch TED talks that are linked to. Just to confirm my opinion that they're self-indulgent fatuous nonsense.
This guy likens himself to Einstein and Feynmann.
Best about that is that he likens the importance of his equation to Einstein's E=mc^2. He seems to be overlooking that there's no such equation. Einstein came up with E^2=(mc^2)^2+(pc)^2. The variable p term later got merged in with the constant m, and created a variable ("relativistic") m. Einstein was horrified by this modification, and denied its validity. Sure, the short equation is punchier, but why sacrifice correctness for space?
So he's likening his equation to a misleading misattribution.
I guess he did that to maximise his future choices...
