half-diminished & whole diminished wtf??

So I was watching an old Dave Chastain guitar video last night, and he starts talking about the whole diminished scale and how it's different from the half-diminished scale everyone's familiar with.
He didn't explain the difference between the two, but then proceeded to turn a harmonizer on in parallel thirds and played some totally stomach churning evil-ass shit.
I've never even heard of the whole diminished scale, even when I was learning about theory and all that. I know half-diminished is when you stack minor 3rds on top of eachother but what's the deal with whole diminished?
