Yes it is. If you give a bit more thought to the talk you can spend a long time thinking of, for example how the lack of a certain sound can influenced humanities view of the world, culture etc.
Even if it's not true it`s still an idea which can lead to brilliant thoughts, that`s why it`s worth sharing. And for that reason alone it`s worth the time on TED.

Oh, and do tell me how is he negatively impacting other talks? Especially being this 3 minute speech which probably took place during one of the brakes between the "more useful talks".

This is an idea? This is an idea worth sharing? Get off the stage. You're negatively impacting the other, more useful talks.
