Looking for a talk that states that recent probabilistic models of the universe can't fully support the fluctuations and entropy theory.

Excuse me if my english is not perfect.
I saw some time ago (about a year or so) amazing talk about the issue of entropy and latest probabilistic models of the universe. The controversial point that was made during the talk was that regarding the known laws of psysics there is a dramatically low chance of the cosmos expanding and growing into sustainable systems and organisms if we would consider the fluctuations and entropy as a one and only factor.

There are some talks regarding this problem but the one I'm looking for was arguing (if I remember correctly) that for ex to have periodic table that is common for the whole universe and the same gravitational laws in every galaxy we must propose somewhat different scientific concepts than just randomize collisions of particles after the big bang. In summary the hypothesis was that if the only factor that contributed to the creation of universe was a lot of heat and fluctuations then we wouldn't be able to find any sustainable systems cause they would - from mathematical point of view - just collapse and be just one unorganized soup of matter and energy. Unfortunately I can't remember the conclusion or if there was one. Probably that is why this talk haunts me so much :)

I'll be extremely grateful if anyone have idea about how to find this talk or maybe have some interesting resources on this subject.

I think it was either a featured talk or maybe just a popular talk at some of the TEDx.
