The most active volcanic zone is the Pacific Ring of Fire around the Pacific plate. Here plates are colliding or separating.

I think the basic point of the video was to symbolically compare the actual Ring of Fire, the horseshoe shaped area lined with volcanoes and earthquakes that line the Pacific, to an actual "ring" that starts at one place, goes through a transition, and comes back "full circle" to start anew.
