    That is cool. There are several split-seconds where they sync up.

    Here is a cool video of some 2D standing waves illustrated with sand on a board with a wave (sound) generator attached.

    It's stuff like these that make it hard to be a Super Stringtheory skeptic. You can see that strings and form waves and vice versa.

    Or see random chaos form itself back into wave patterns. I was perplexed as a kid watching water come out of a down spout of a friend's house's gutters, splash on the driveway, and then it formed waves within the surface after a few feet. How could waves be forming out of random choatic splashing?

    Now I understand how each atom of water is given a different speed once it impacted the concrete and the surface of the concrete adjusted those speeds so that as the droplets coalesced into a sheet of water running down the driveway, some were faster and some were slower. Hence you get wave formation as you would in any other system.
