Thanks to http://www.audible.com/minutephysics for supporting this video, which is about how the way we describe the world can influence the way we perceive it. In particular, with regards to Bohmian mechanics, Schrodinger wave functions, Feynman path integrals, and Galilean moons attached to Jupiter by springs.
